For a limited time, a retailer is discounting Castlevania: Lords of Shadow on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 to under $20.
$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.
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.
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!!!
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.
that about sums it up.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.
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.
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.
it sold over a million so it was a success.the dlc comes out early this year.it picks up where the end lift off.
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.
I hope the Fry's in Burbank will still have it tomorrow.
Shit... sold out online and there's no Fry's here in So-Tex. $20 is a sweet price.
@N4WAH anybody on this site who has in opinion is a troll.i'm a ps3 man myself (you can check my post history for proof).but you fanboys piss me off.i said it was my opinion you retard, i don't think like you, i don't act like you, and i don't have to like what you like.get that through your head. i think c:los is better then gow3, who are you to tell me i'm wrong about what i like better?.and gow3 was one of the easiest games i've played all year it's a button masher with a good story and great set pieces.
According to the Fry's website, all of the stores in Northern California are out of stock. Yay.
Completed this last night, excellent game. Well worth the money if anyone hasn't got it already.
I'm on chapter 11 of his game..I've enjoyed it so far....having played 90% castlevania games this is the best 3D version, obviously. The combination of Big Bosses, Puzzles, Combos, Wall/Castle scaling(prince of Persia style), Great voice acting and good narration makes this a great game. This is not a Ninja Gaiden/Bayonetta type hack & Slash game....this game is along the lines of Darksiders, God of War, Dante's Inferno, Prince of Persia mixed with Castlevania flavors of the past, type of game. If that doesn't make sense(lol), just merge all them games together.
i'm an old school castlevania fan.really didnt plan on buying this new version but at 20 dollars count me in.
The first story I read was "First game Castlevania los running on cfw 3.55" Then I see this. Wow.
