Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
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.
the end is predictable
i got this for my birthday, so i playit, is entertained, but the end is predictable, I am not sureif it is a castlevania game, from the beginning is ambiguous in that aspect, perhaps an alternate history
Not what i expected
This game is not a castlevania game. It is not set in a castle. It should just be called lords of shadow. Castlevania games are supposed to be set inn a castle. every other castlevania is. This was a huge waste of money. Just save your money and buy something else this game is not a castlevania game.
An underrated masterpiece.
First of all, this is the first Castlevania game I've ever played so I'm not comparing it to any of the old games. This game is absolutely incredible, it has a gripping and exciting story, a stunning musical score and excellent voice acting, beautiful graphics and very fun and satisfying gameplay. I know a lot of people troll on this game because it's similar to other games but if you judge this game for what it is, it's amazing. Just because it may have been inspired by other games doesn't mean it's bad or that you should hate on it, for example I was desperate for a hack n' slash game to fill the void after I finished God of War III 7 times (huge GOW fan) and this game did so perfectly. A great game any fan of the genre will adore.
