Castlevania: The Final Frontier

Nicholas Vecchione, Amazon
17 March 2011
  • Summary: To begin, I must say that having Patrick Stewart (Star Trek) and Robert Carlyle (Stargate: Universe) star as main vocal characters is extremely effective and highly entertaining while the soundtrack, itself, is equally potent. The game is arranged perfectly, set up in a fashion that allows for an enjoyable playing experience. There are three difficulty settings which can be changed at anytime with the addition of a fourth once the third difficulty is completed.

Castlevania Lords of Shadow PS3

Renaissance, Amazon
20 February 2011
  • Summary: Castlevania Lords of Shadow is a fun game to play. The game play can be very challenging and the graphics are superb. Each board has a bonus quest to accomplish after you beat the individual section and there are power ups to collect. My main beef with this game is that the real time events where there is a flash that prompts you to press a button to perform an action and the many monotonous puzzles severely limits and disrupts the flow of the game.

A franchise reboot

Eamon, amazon.co.uk
30 January 2014
  • Summary: A overall enjoyable game that has the double edged sword of fixed camera. When used correctly by the game it shows off the beautiful views and vista's which the game has on offer and during combat allows you to use the plethora of combat moves and combos without worrying about having to re-adjust the camera which allows you to concentrate on dispatching your enemies, when used incorrectly ( which is sadly 20% of the time) the camera becomes the enemy, forcing awkward...

Castlevania in very little other than name

Kirin No Koshin, amazon.co.uk
8 June 2011
  • Summary: Castlevania Lords Of Shadow is the latest entry in Konami's much loved and long running horror themed franchise. It doesn't exactly capture the spirit of the series but then it isn't really trying to. What you have here is a lengthy, linear action title that will likely appeal to fans of the Gothic horror genre. The visuals are highly detailed, lavishly depicting a wide range of classic fantasy horror settings and antagonists.

Not bad, but weak in the genre

Sidney Carton, amazon.co.uk
7 March 2011
  • Summary: This game looks fantastic; the graphics are very good, and the storyline engaging. Gameplay is very average, sadly, and players will be far better served by God of War 3 or even something like Dante's Inferno. God of War 3 is the king, and Dante's Inferno is surprisingly good even if it is a complete knock-off of the acclaimed Sony franchise.

Looks great - but the ideas are not new

A. Griffiths "Adrian", amazon.co.uk
22 December 2010
  • Summary: There's a very simple way to describe Castlevania Lords of Shadow...it's Devil May Cry! What started off as a platform game where you explore endless rooms in a spooky castle in your search for Dracula has turned into a 3D action game with lots of combos, skills and relentless enemies, and the resemblance to the Devil May Cry series is startling. I think a summary is worthwhile here.

Castlevania, thus far...

Gamester, amazon.co.uk
22 October 2010
  • Summary: This is the first Castlevania I've ever played. I've not yet completed it but thought I should get my views down while they're still fresh in my mind... The concept. You: cross wielding, gauntlet wearing paladin bad-ass. Them: numerous beasties who, if not slain in some satisfyingly brutal way by your magical might, will disintegrate anyway through contact with your sheer awesomness. The plot: they murdered your loved ones thus you must slay as many of them as possible.

Inexperienced developer has costed the brilliance of the game.

B. Zhang "BlazingDawn", amazon.co.uk
18 October 2010
  • Summary: this game has everything right apart from the gameplay, the old feature such as collecting lots of weapons are abandoned. points that the game did not achieve and could have done so: sudden changes from QTE(quick time event) to the game, game to cut scen, it is good to have a cut scent connected to the game as well as the QTE, but do -not teleport the cameras, player often dizzed by the camera suddenly moved to a totally different location.
