  • Excerpt: The Castlevania series has some of the best games that have ever been released on any consoles, ever.  When some of them are re-released that game, by default, becomes the best game on that system.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Ultimate Edition

Hooked Gamers

  • Conclusion: Cutting out a lot of the filler would go a long way to improving my enjoyment of the game. As it stands, combat is the best part of the game: strong with a lot of variety, if a little repetitive. For an aging game, it still looks great, and is backed up by an excellent soundtrack and voice cast.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition

Cosmos Gaming
10 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow released on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 at the end of 2010 and marked another shift in direction for the franchise. Rather than being developed in Japan, Konami allowed European developer MercurySteam to create a reboot based around the character Gabriel Belmont.
  • Pros: + Stunning graphics and an engine that runs at a smooth 60 FPS, + Expansive environments that are often massive in scale, + Strong voice acting and musical score, + Combat system is fun and provides players with plenty of options
  • Cons: - Some sections feel a bit too long or tacked on to add unnecessary length, - Platforming feels a bit imprecise at times, - Too many quick time events during boss fights, - Beginning sections feel a bit generic for a Castlevania title

10 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition is a very good game – it just isn’t a very good Castlevania game. The locations and story feel apocalyptic in nature and does bring the forces of good and evil together for an epic fight – however, the game play itself departs greatly from what we have...

  • Pros: Outstanding art direction and cinematography, Epic orchestrated soundtrack, Great boss fights
  • Cons: A troublesome fixed camera, Superfluous quick-time events, Excessive and intrusive hand-holding

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition

Digital Chumps

  • Conclusion: MercurySteam's take on Castlevania has never looked better than it does with the Ultimate Edition. Despite being three years removed from its original release, it's still a joy to play and would do very well for itself when compared to more recent genre releases.
