Not the castlevania we all know,but a instant hit
17 November 2013
Summary: To me this Castlevania left its main roots to try something new. I waited to buy it because I seen videos and finally the collection came out. CLoS is a fun hack and slash game similar to GoW. The gameplay is smooth and responsive. The detailed world looks beautiful but what bothers me is the restricted CAMERA that prevents me to look around. Basically the whole time your playing the camera is directed in one perspective only which is above annoying after a while.
Summary: The product itself is a great saving. Lords of Shadow (new on Amazon) is $25, but if you want the DLC, it would be about $9.99 for the first and $9.99 for the second, and Mirror of Fate HD is currently $14.99 on PSN. If you bought all of the above separately, it would cost at least $59.97 before tax. $39.99 for the whole package AND LOS2 Demo is actually a good deal.
Summary: A step away from the more traditional castlevania style, however it achives what it sets out to do, graphics,atmosphere are really nice, voice acting is top notch, the gameplay is well done however a medicore camera system bogs this game down slightly also framerates can bog at times but all in all a gem of a game for any gothic horror or action fan.
Summary: As several have mentioned in their reviews of this game, the graphics are beautiful: detailed and deep color saturated. Fighting the titans was thrilling and memorable. The game play increased in enjoyment as skills were unlocked. It was a bit of a slow start story-wise, but more than worth sticking with.
Summary: Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow is a more refined and mature take on what we know as a 3D Castlevania game. True, it does borrow many gameplay elements from God Of War--such as quick-time events, giant bosses, and puzzles--but these things have become the standard for action games. You also won't find much in the way of classic Castlevania tunes here, as they've been replaced with orchestral compostions like one would expect to hear in a fantasy RPG (although, there IS an...
Summary: The game itself is pretty awesome. Great music, graphics and storyline. Don't waste your money on the DLCs though. Both of them are HORRIBLE due to being way too short to justify the ridiculious price. The Resurrection DLC is also WAY TOO HARD.
Summary: When this game came out, it got ripped apart by critics. There were people saying how it wasn't Castlevania enough or that it didn't follow the main story canon in the Castlevania Universe. Point taken. But I also remember reading one review of someone comparing the gameplay, story, and art to Dante's Inferno but how Dante's Inferno did it better. After finally getting a chance to play Dante's Inferno, that it a huge slap in the face to this game.
