Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
One of the best games I've played in a long time
One of the very few 10's I've given a game. Sure the gameplay is like God of War, but so what, it's a masterpiece of gaming. The graphics and backdrops are jaw dropping so many times throughout the game, the story is great, bosses galore, super long game so you get your moneys worth, awesome sound and music, fun puzzles and extras. I haven't enjoyed playing through a game so much in years and years. It seriously is that good!!
I love the Castlevania Saga
I really can't put into words how great this game is, while playing this game I just didn't want it to end. Graphics are so good you could eat off of them. The sound is excellent it has that scary erie effect, the gameplay is awesome. This game is under gamers noses and they don't realize it. This is one of my absolute favorites in my library. A true gem.
Starts off slowly, but gets better
I didn't like the first couple of levels of this game at all. I forced myself to keep playing and I'm glad I did. Once you get further into it, this game is pretty fun. I really liked the combat in this game. It's very fast paced and you have to keep hitting and dodging. It doesn't get boring and mundane. I thought the characters and storyline are exceptionally well done and it's one of the main reasons I liked this game. I also liked the environments in each level. They are different and look very detailed. Some of the bosses are fun...and some just aren't. I HATE the giants!! It's also worth noting that the background music fits the game very well.
i love this game. its very long but the story line is very interesting. soooo many different enemies. this game is worth buying
Really Impressed me!!
i was i little skeptic about the game after hearing that it was a "god of war clone". though it is very inspired in gameplay but there are other mechanics like the light and shadow magic that u have to use constantly for example, among other things that set this game apart from god of war. The game blew me away in every aspect: story, graphics, level design, gameplay, boss fights, voice actors, music etc. and also the game can be quite challenging which is a plus for me. im a fan of the castlevania franchise since super castlevania 4 and im glad i picked this one up, is the best castlevania title i have played in a while in my opinion, recommended to anyone how likes castlevania games or action games/ hack and slash games in general.
IGN Thought the Combat Was Dull But I Dont Think So! a Cross as a weapon to fight evil? GREAT IDEA! :D, I Completed the game on Squire Mode! Cant Wait For the Sequel! :D
A fresh, mature direction for Castlevania
Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow is a more refined and mature take on what we know as a 3D Castlevania game. True, it does borrow many gameplay elements from God Of War--such as quick-time events, giant bosses, and puzzles--but these things have become the standard for action games. You also won't find much in the way of classic Castlevania tunes here, as they've been replaced with orchestral compostions like one would expect to hear in a fantasy RPG (although, there IS an homage to the old theme during the music box stage). Still, the spirit of Castlevania is very much intact in the beautiful scenery, characters, and various monsters you'll encounter. Lords Of Shadow is not without it's missteps, though: The titan boss fights are a bit tedious, many of the combos you can acquire aren't useful against the bigger enemies, and there are perhaps a few too many puzzles. Lords Of Shadow comes up just shy of the quality of other action titles such as God Of War, but it's still worth checking out. It's quite lengthy for an action game (I estimate around 12-15 hours for most on the first playthrough) and should certainly please Castlevania fans who stick with it to the end.
yessss love it
I LIKE THE SCENE THAT YOU GET TO UPGRADE UR WEAPON BUT U HAVE TO UPGRADE UR WEAPON ENABLED TO GO BACK AND UNLOCK SOME OF THE SECRET AREA...THE MAIN PART THAT I LOVE WAS THE CHESS GAMES.. THAT WAS SO FUN CANT WAIT TILL PART TWO COMES OUT YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WATCH FOR ACTION BUTTON DURING MOVIE SCENES
THIS GAME IS ONE OF THE BEST IVE PLAYED.LOVED THE GRAPHICS AND STORYLINE.IF YOU LOVE FIGURING PUZZLES,KICKING VAMPIRE,WHAREWOLF AND MONSTER BUTT WITH THE CLIMBING ABILITIES OF UNCHARTED...THIS IS THE GAME FOR YOU.....
I loved this game and would definitely recommend!
Apparently this game doesn't follow the same kind of gameplay as the older Castlevania games. Well, I never played any of those! I loved this game, it's a great adventure game. The puzzles aren't too terribly difficult overall, I did have to look online for some help with a couple of them though. The graphics are really well done and the ending is amazing. I don't think it has a great replayability opportunity, but maybe that's just me.
