Test Castlevania Harmony of Despair

Generation NT
9 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Particulièrement déroutant pour les néophytes, Castlevania : Harmony of Despair nous plonge in extenso dans une partie sans nous inviter à prendre part à un quelconque tutoriel. Il suffit de lancer une partie pour s'en convaincre : vous débarquez directement dans un niveau, aux abords d'une horde de zombies prêts à en découdre, sans avoir été briefé sur les touches à prendre en compte. Déroutant, n'est-il pas ?
  • Pros: Mode coopératif inédit, Structure des niveaux intéressante, Artistiquement réussi, Bonnes musiques
  • Cons: Inintéressant en solo, Pas de gain d'expérience / niveaux, Seulement six niveaux, Pas de coop en local

Castlevania Harmony of Despair

Game Boyz
26 August 2010
  • Excerpt: The next release in Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade is a reimagining of sorts of the beloved Castlevania series from Konami. Konami decided to take the fast paced side scrolling action that fans of the series know and add a few new twists to it such as co-op and competitive multiplayer. Did Konami continue the quality everyone loves?

WorthPlaying
5 August 2010
  • Summary: This fast-paced 2-D side scroller takes vampire hunters on a chase to bring Dracula, the Lord of Darkness, to his eternal slumber. Designed by the producer of the legendary Castlevania series, Koji Igarashi, Harmony of Despair allows friends to play together via online co-op story mode or duke it out in Survival Mode to see who is the best vampire hunter.

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair Review

AtomicGamer
4 August 2010
  • Excerpt: I’ve been destroying Bone Pillars, whipping Merman, and dodging annoying Medusa heads ever since a strapping young Belmont graced the box of Konami’s NES classic Castlevania . Needless to say, I’m a big fan of the long-running Drac-slaying series. So, when Castlevania: Harmony of Despair , an XBLA exclusive combining the franchise’s old-school 2D appeal with new-fangled co-operative play, was announced, I ran for my whip and crucifix.

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair [Xbox Live Arcade]

3 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Of all the games in Microsoft’s Xbox Live “Summer of Arcade” promotion, Castlevania: Harmony of Despair might just be the one that was most anticipated. Harmony of Despair is the first original downloadable game in the series, and the promise of cooperative action combined with gameplay that appeared to be similar to the excellent DS games seemed like a dream come true.

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

Defunct Games

  • Summary: Castlevania: Harmony of Despair is a multiplayer game first and a single-player game second. This is a daring twist on a tried and true franchise, one that may split a lot of gamers. The good news is that this experiment mostly works, even if it comes at the expense of a proper single-player mode. Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.

  • Conclusion: If you aren’t familiar with the difficulty of the Castlevania games previous to SotN you will probably see Castlevania HD as nothing but an exercise in frustration. If you want to get into Castlevania you can pick up the excellent Symphony of the Night from the Xbox Live Marketplace - and while it doesn’t have multiplayer you’re much more likely to have a good time.
