Summary: This game is fun and has tons of replay value. The game design is excellent and the soundtrack is just superb. If you're looking for traditional Castlevania you won't find it here, but pick this up if you are into games like GoW and Devil May Cry.
Summary: My wife is usually an avid videogame player but due to school and work she hasn't really been playing lately. However, with the new release of castlevania, she has gotten back into it. The voice over work by Patrick Stewart is amazing. I think I would probably listen to twilight with pleasure if it was read by Patrick Stewart though. Overall gameplay is fast paced and really gritty. It feels good in combat. It's definitely not another God of War clone.
Castlevania is back with a Vengeance...Indeed!...but also a flaw.

Summary: MercurySteam proved that a good Castlevania 3d game was possible. It is indeed an unexpected success, from an unexpected source. I've never had much fun with a game before. They are now back on the map thanks to this game. The music is beautiful, if you loved the Lord of the rings soundtrack you will love this one. The music for this new Castlevania is darker, but beautiful. Listen to Belmont's theme and Final confrontation.
The game is great, the colectors edition coul be better

Summary: The game is a must play for any one ( i did a review of the game on the regular version seccion) this is a review of the limited edition. nice, but could be better. The eurpoean limited edition of this game is what this one should be. It has a real iron mask and must of the things this one had, even a better presentation. gete the regular.
Summary: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is truly a remarkable game that surpasses many of my expectations. It's quite obvious to the novice of gamers that this game borrows a lot of elements from many of the top games in the industry today. Spend a couple of hours with it and you'll most likely be pondering "Now where have I seen that before?
Summary: i found this game soo difficult it was unreal. the puzzles and so have no hint what so ever so your basically stuck on every other level. if it was'nt for the online walkthrough guides i would of proabably chucked this game out of the window, after the first hour. Gameplay and graphics wise though this game was awesome. Amazing monsters and bosses to fight and the levels are amazing really well layed out.
Summary: This is nothing like the nostalgic Castlevania games but it does give you a game experience worth trying it out, i tried this back when it came out but had to get it again, in my opinion it has a great replay value it's a fairly long game with a well written story. the difficulty in the game can be a bit harsh but this only gives the game more character. I myself had loads of fun completing it.
Summary: Archaic design and a camera that can be counterintuitive are offset by gorgeous graphics and a detailed and robust combat design. Castlevania has a story just not a great one, with a theme that is not often tapped into in games, its unique appeal is all but butchered by the character troupes (that are marginally rescued by the great voice of star wars man Patrick Stewart). Overall voice acting is hit or miss and when it's bad it's BAD!!!
