Game Over Online
18 October 2015
Excerpt: Castlevania: Lords of Shadows puts you in the role of Gabriel Belmont - a man out for revenge after his wife is slain. Instead of a whip, he yields a modified crucifix called the combat cross, and while vampires and other supernatural creatures are intact, they’re presented in a more realistic...
Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow - Mirror Of Fate HD Review
21 November 2013
Summary: " Castlevania: Mirror of Fate HD " is not really a Metroidvania game despite the side-scrolling nature of the gameplay. It’s a mostly linear, combat focused adventure with more in common with Castlevania: Bloodlines than the seminal Symphony of the Night or the previous DS games.
Summary: Outside the big guns of Mario and Zelda, there aren't that many franchises that can show a steady history of releases. 'Castlevania' however, is one of those few titles, tracking its history back nearly 30 years to the original NES.
Excerpt: If you've been getting your Belmont on since Castlevania's original outing on NES almost a quarter of a century ago now, Lords of Shadow - Konami's reimagining of the classic series - won't be quite the calamitous case of sacrilege some quarters might have you believe.

Excerpt: The irony is not lost on us that a Belmont is going 3D at roughly the same time Lara Croft goes 2D... In both cases, we've been pleasantly surprised and rewarded by the new direction of these games, but Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is probably the most expansive change.
Conclusion: For such a linear world there is more than enough to make it appear fresh and new with each area and keep your interest peaked throughout. Again if you are a pure Castlevania fan looking for the next stage in the series then this may not be the game for you but if you are heading into this with...
Excerpt: I'm all for a bit of realism in games, but from time to time I want fantasy. I want trolls, chupacabras, golems, massive titans, werewolves, vampires, undead freaks, fairies, mystical lands, gorgeous scenery, magic and over-the-top action.
