Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Review written Monday, December 15th, 2014 at 07:41 pm.


A heroic journey, through various beautiful, awe-inspiring vistas, battling many kinds of mythical beasts and monsters as well as huge and powerful bosses, accompanied by one of the best soundtracks of this generation finished by a very powerful ending? An absolute masterpiece.

Although many old-timers don't agree with the new 3D style, I think the new Castlevania is brilliant. It brought life into the weird fantasy elements of the franchise. Now the characters can fully express the dramatic gestures that the 2D games could never show. The 3D action also melds together well with the fighting style of Castlevania. Patrick Stewart also gives the series a new, medieval edge.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Review written Friday, December 14th, 2012 at 04:01 pm.


Being that I love the Castlevania series so much, I did like the 2D games, but I waited for so long for this franchise to evolve in the 3D realm. Not only is this my favorite 3D Castlevania, but it's one of my favorite games of all time, evolving the Vampire-hunting franchise I loved into a 3D Action hack-slasher. As much as people like to say it's not Castlevania, it very much is. There's platforming, a level-by-level progression, there's remix of older Castlevania music in it (subtle) and the story involves the Belmont clan. The music is just amazing and immersive, this game sends an epic breeze through me. I love how the action works and how slower-paced the levels are that let you soak this beautiful game in. Thank you MercurySteam.

Lords of Shadow is my first Castlevania game and I was not disappointed. The story is well done and beautifully told. The gameplay is very similar to God of War and can be very challenging at times (Oh boy The forgotten One!!). The music is also nice enough to deserve a mention. The game has a wordeful ending and I'm now curious to see what Mercury Steam has in store for us with Lords of Shadow 2. 100% complete btw :)

I got this game when it came out. I saw the trailers read about the game and I can gladly say it is a fantastic game. The story was amazing and the graphics look excellent and detailed. The games controls feel like God of War, but that's a good thing. If your going to base a control scheme on another game you need to make sure it's good, and it is. The puzzles were great and the game has a good variety of enemies and bosses. The game is long as well, so it will keep you busy. It can get repetitive after a while but the story scenes or fun boss battles help bring the fun back. Can't wait for the sequel and spin-off.

People often complain that this game doesn't feel like Castlevania, they're wrong, it just doesn't feel like Metroid any more. Finally this franchise has gone back to where it should be, a somewhat linear action game with great varied gameplay and a simple but atmospheric story. This is what every action game should be like. Some say it rips off God Of War and Shadow Of The Colossus, that's also wrong. The Belmonts have been using chain whip weapons way before Kratos ever existed. Sure, it's been influenced by those games, but that's a good thing. Well paced, well designed game, with influences taken from some of the best games in the history of gaming. Easy to see why this is the best game of 2010.

My biggest disapointment of this generation. Not that the game is bad, but I was expecting something else. I was hoping this would be what Ocarina of Time and Metroid Prime were to their respective series. Instead we got a linear beat them all. The game has plenty of qualities though, like beautiful graphics, amazing art direction, touching and memorable music, a nice plot, nice references to European folklore, a deep combat system. However it also has some unforgivable flaws. It's segmented into short linear levels, the camera is fixed (the graphics are no THAT good to warrant it, especially when compared to other beat them alls that have a free look camera). It's a current gen game in appearence, but an archaic game in design.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Review written Saturday, February 11th, 2012 at 10:38 pm.


As a big Castlevania fan i had high expectations for this game, and it does deliver in some aspects while failing in others. First off this is a reboot for the series so you should forget all that you thought you knew about Castlevania, and respect it for the new and very well told story that it's trying to mold. The gameplay is very god of war, being a fast paced Hack & Slash, it's fun but different from all other entries in the series. The voice acting's terrific and the Graphics breathtaking at points. where this game fails is at being a Castlevania, as less than 1/3 of the game takes place in a Castle, Dracula doesn't appear till the very end and most series norms like death are backseat drivers or non-existant at this point.
