Review: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow


Holy Belmont! This looks sick! Castlevania 4 for snes is still my favorite game. I'm not joking the music is amazing!
So what you're saying is that they stole gameplay from somewhere else while at the same time losing what made the series interesting in the first place?

If the Metoid series can make the jump into 3D and not lose their basic reason for existing, why can't Castlevania? I really don't care. I haven't played as Simon since back on the NES.
Meh. As someone wiser than me once said, "Some things were meant to be 2-D, and Belmonts are one of those things."
You forgot to mention, this game features the uber-dreamy voice of Captain Jean-Luc Picard! Swoon!
This game is a KFC-style double-down shit sandwich with turds for a bun. This new one is a pastiche of several other games, and inferior to each. Fixed camera? Great. It's loads of fun facing towards the camera trying to guess where the just out-of-view enemy is going to attack from. I'd rather run through the 2005 Castlevania: Curse of Darkness for the original Xbox, hands down.

Zero Punctuation makes a habit of finding the worst of games, but in this case their review is 100% accurate:…
For Castlevania Lords of Shadow the game itself isnt bad its excellent the only part i hated and still hate is Gaberiel is now dracula. Everything else leading up to that is amazing the graphics were excellent the story until the very end was excellent i did like the nice touch with in the little box when Baba Yaga puts him in there and how you could see her moving about when she transfer you to one area of the musical box to the other.
