Castlevania - Lords of Shadow (Xbox 360, PS3) review


Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (developed under the watchful eye of editor's nightmare Hideo Kojima) eschews the autism-inducing Metroidvania template of recent Castlevania games, and opts instead for some good old fashioned linearity. I?d say ?God of...

Oh, and if you?re wondering whether or not a certain villain is in it, I?m not telling you. You?ll be asking in vein (groan).

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Review


Great addition to the Castlevania franchise?

A beautifully crafted game that more than lives up to the expectations that arise with any Castlevania release. This is an epic, stylish and enormously entertaining adventure that deserves to be played by anybody with a passing interest in the genre or...

Is Castlevania back like a bat out of hell? Or a fly out of a fruit bowl?

Kojima-influenced vampire epic is well worth getting your teeth into

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow PS3 Review


For the first time in 25 years of Castlevania, the franchise is wiping the slate clean and heading down a path which is unfamiliar for the series. Touted as a reboot, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a 3D action adventure title, opting for more of a...

Amazing visuals ; Great voice acting ; Gripping storyline

Framerate issues ; Control confusions ; Can be pad crushingly frustrating on harder difficulty levels

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow


Lords of Shadow is exactly what the Castlevania franchise needed to find popularity with a new generation of gamers - and us oldies too. One of the best games of 2010.

Epic adventure ; Combat requires thought ; Gorgeous art design

Slight repetition when using mounts

Calling CLOS a surprise hit might be a little unfair, as the game looked impressive throughout development, but it's fair to say that I simply didn't expect to enjoy it this much. With a combat system that cleverly overcomes button mashing, wonderful...

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow Review


Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is so different from previous games in the franchise that Konami are worried that fans won't accept the changes. "It was quite a radical departure from what had gone before with Castlevania and there was a little bit of...

Spectacular action adventure ; Epic story ; Great combat

Platforming should have been better ; Show its influences ; Castlevania fans may be disappointed

Many of the flaws are simply minor problems though, and ones that do little to spoil the overall enjoyment of the game. Lords of Shadow may not be the Castlevania game the hardcore followers were hoping for, but despite this it's one of the finest...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Review


Konami have promised us the most spectacular Castlevania of all time but will this be nothing more than a false promise?

Stunning graphics ; Superb sound and story ; Good gameplay

Fixed camera is pretty poor ; Some puzzles a little too frustrating ; Combat can be a little repetitive

I will admit that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was not on my list of must have games however it did not take much playing to realise that this is one of those games that has well and truly crept under the radar to become one of my most enjoyed gaming...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow


Castlevania: Lord of Shadows is this week's attempt to bring the Castlevania series into the realm of 3D gaming. While there have been a few 3D Castlevania entries dating back to the halcyon days of the ascendancy of the hoary N64, none have been as...

One of the most beautiful games I’ve seen in awhile. Very nice job, graphically speaking

Not a Castlevania game ; Not very dark, “spooky”, or gothic – it’s a daytime action fest with werewolves thrown in for good measure ; Some of the bosses are just too big and over the top, reflecting the true Shadow of the Colossus/God of War...

Castlevania: Lord of Shadows borrows from several popular games (though ones whose intrinsic value or lack thereof are left to the reader to determine for themselves). The look, feel, and even gameplay of Van Helsing, Shadow of the Colossus, and God of...

Beautiful graphics ; Thought out story ; Fluid combat ; Almost perfect checkpoint system ; Fantastic presentation and music

Fixed camera can be bothersome ; Confusing platforming ; Difficulty can become brutal

Being a child of the 90s, I grew up with classic games that I hold near and dear to my heart. One of those game series was Castlevania. Being a vampire hunter was just plain awesome. The adult tone and gothic presentation was something a lot of gamers...
