Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Reverie (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
6 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 's first DLC, Reverie , starts off with a change in tone. Highly stylized moving painting cutscenes are a departure from the in-engine story sequences from the main game, looking quite a lot more like the game's concept art coming to life and speaking to you.

  • Summary: Castlevania is reborn into a 3D action game that borrows heavily from some of the PS3's greatest hits. However, with so much to experience, thrilling boss battles, and plenty of replay value, it's well worth the investment.

  • Conclusion: But the experience of playing and enjoying the game benefits enormously from the high-production values and often breathtaking visuals and art direction. At its core this is an action game with some light platforming and some even lighter puzzling, and every immediate inclination you may have to...

  • Excerpt: I have to admit to going into Castlevania Lords of Shadow with a certain amount of trepidation. You see I never got on with any of the traditional two-dimensional side-scrolling action-platformers that the series is so noted for.
