Will Wow you one moment, and Make You Question Your Taste in Games the Next Minute

  • Summary: This game was interesting. It had many ups and downs in every aspect. The graphics were consistently stellar on a technical basis but some locales were very bland in design. The story had some great twists and turns, but also some really awkward scenarios and poorly written dialogue. Finally the gameplay, ill be the first to admit that this is not a God of war clone in any aspect of the fighting mechanics.

I really wanted to like this game...

  • Summary: Let me start my review by saying I am a huge Castlevania fan, and I, like many, had high hopes for the sequel of the critically acclaimed Castlevania Lords of Shadow . This summarizes what I believe is the main problem of this sequel, the first one was so great and well written that we all expected something at least similar to the original. And this is where Mercury Steam failed to deliver.

Great ideas, but used in the wrong way.

  • Summary: Just to put this out there, the game had potential with graphics, dialogue, environment, boss fights and character design. Therefore, the game is not entirely bad. However, there are major flaws in certain areas of the game that weigh's it down to being unworthy of its title. One of the areas happens to be in combat, the shadow whip, the void sword, and the chaos claws are great weapons, but don't show too much of an impressive performance when leveling up.

Devs lost the magic from the first LOS

  • Summary: I was a huge fan of the first and was super excited to finish the LOS series as the prince of darkness himself. ***I did my best to avoid spoilers but I did reference minor events and some characters in very general terms. First the good: The story started off pretty slow at first with the occasional bright spot, but about half way through it picks up considerably and finishes strong.

Falls Short.

  • Summary: As a long-standing (and very dedicated) fan of the Castlevania series - the reviews that preceded the release of this game did little to deter me from purchasing it. And if you're an avid fan as well, then I would say the same can probably be true for you. However if you're considering whether to buy this new or are just not the type of person to pickup a Castlevania game simply b/c there's a new one - then the following is for you.

CLOS2: Combat great, the rest, not so much

J. Cummings "Somewhere in PS2 land", Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: Castlevania is one of those iconic series in video games which saw its heyday in previous generations (with, generally speaking, the best game in the series being Castelvania: Symphony of the Night on PS1). The first Castlevania: LOS game did breath new, fresh air into this series.

"Collection" is a Term Used Loosely

  • Summary: Ok, let me start by saying that CLOS is a fantastic game on its own. It's a beautiful game, with a great control scheme, great voice acting, great story and great boss battles. Any fan of the Castlevania series would love this game. It's probably the best installment of the series in my humble opinion. So, why do I give Castlevania: Lords of Shadow "Collection" only 3 of 5 stars?

Pretty much just a rip off of God of War...

Shaide, Amazon

  • Summary: As far back as the NES days, Castlevania has been known for 2 things — poor graphics, and side scrolling action. The newest Castlevania game takes both and throws them out a window. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, like most newer games based on a classic franchise has decided to move away from the side scroller format of yesteryear, to a 3D "roaming" setting.

There are better action games out there and this isn't Castlevania...

  • Summary: Let's get this out of the way right now this game is gorgeous! The art style looks wonderful and each scene is well framed to make you notice this fact! While the music enhances the image further. Unfortunately the framerate can't really keep up with the beauty and neither can the combat. Combat feels rather slow and laborious while none of your attacks really seem satisfying.
