$20 for a 25 hour game? It's way to awesome to pass up. GOTY contender that got no respect. One of the best looking games this gen too.

Trixzter73851d ago

Agreed completely.
This was a game that flew completely under the radar and didn't get all the credit it deserved. For $60 I thought it was worth the money and now for $20, you will be an idiot not to pick it up.

This game was incredible, for $20 you'd be a fool not to pick it up if you are either :

a) a fan of God of War/Dante's Inferno
b) the Castlevania universe.

LOS was as, others said, arguably GOTY and an incredible game top to bottom.

great tears of blood - i must buy this; oh wait I own it already :p

How's the frame rate in the final version? The demo wasn't even 30 fps and that's a concern for me considering this IS a hack 'n slash.

TheBand1t3851d ago

Honestly, it only has framerate issues during that portion of the game. It gets alot better along the way.

@Ghost of Sparta

This is NOT a hack-n-slash. you try that garbage on any difficulty level above normal and you will get your s*it ruined!!!

socomnick3851d ago

Yea this game is amazing so much better than god of war 3.

Such a long and fun game, its not for the faint of heart though, this game won't hold your hand like god of war does, you need to have fast reflexes and remember your enemies patterns.

Solid solid game.

xXxSeTTriPxXx3851d ago (Edited 3851d ago )

that about sums it's an amazing game and for $20 you won't find a better experience.i thought it was better then god of war 3 myself.only thing god3 has on cv is graphics, but the combat in los is better, it's challenging with good length and more replay value and the end was a epic win.

i know i'm going to get thumb down for this but, castlevania is the better game imo.but on n4g your not allowed to have a opinion.

It's nearly impossible for you to post without trolling, isn't it? Personally I loved Castelvania but I don't recall having my hand held one time playing GOW3. Now if any game was guilty of that it was Enslaved. A game where you could not fall to your doom.

So do us all a favor and crawl back under your bridge.

divideby03851d ago

does not come close to God of War in terms of graphics, audio and production.. clearly some have never played GOW..

I thought the camera was pulled to far back for most of the game. that was my biggest beef with it

Socomnick can't open his mouth without trolling...go figure...

Got the Limited Edition on Amazon for $40, down from $80. Haven't played yet, still in awe of the concept art included.

FrankMcSpank3851d ago

The art syle is very Pan's Labrynth. The company is spanish and the game has that Del Toro feel. Plus,(don't know about 360) in the PS3 version, you can save all concept art you unlock/buy in the game to the Photos XMB to use as themes or share with friends. Epic game on the level of many AAA exclusives. I love C:LoS and can't wait to see if they get a sequel out.

The faeries and Pan's temple architecture really spring to mind now that you mention it.

Mercurysteam have made me a believer. I eagerly await their next project.

xXxSeTTriPxXx3851d ago

it sold over a million so it was a success.the dlc comes out early this picks up where the end lift off.

VenomProject3851d ago (Edited 3851d ago )

Go get this one if you're on the edge of buying. I waited for it to drop in price before I picked it up, let me just say that I should have gotten this game on launch.

It's incredibly lengthy and the graphics (playing this game in 1080p is AMAZING) and story are top notch. I know this is blasphemy, but some of the action scenes are actually more intense than God of War.

$20? What a steal.

Gambit073851d ago

I hope the Fry's in Burbank will still have it tomorrow.

guitarded773851d ago

Shit... sold out online and there's no Fry's here in So-Tex. $20 is a sweet price.
