Its a new taste to old characters
The thing about this game is that i was an experimental idea into the realm of fighters. Its not meant to be canon and its not meant to be super special, a hardcore castelvania fan will love it but to must others it could be a push off. Its fighting style is very well in-tuned to the Wii's controls but lacks the technical levels of Street Fighter or Mortal kombat so its not Tournament worthy. Its story is little but it does have some funny lines of dialogue. The voice actors are famous in the anime world and are well casted for each character and the character themselves are all fresh looking compared to there original sprite forms. Overall its just something to have some fun with and sure it can get old but if you have a friend it can be fun plus at the used price its worth it.
back to storming the castle...
this game is perfect and can be played through most of the ages 10 and up. i love storming the castle now with all my favorite people, they are back and much better. i would play this game over and over again so that i could just see all the action that goin on. best caslevania game ever, everyone should have a caslvania so that everyone knows how great these games are. i would rate this game an 100 if i could. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Castlevania fans turn away
I bought this game over the summer. While it isn't the best game overall, especially in a series with as much acclaim as Castlevania, it CAN provide some degree of fun. The controls may seem dumb and frustrating, but the game does have a degree of challenge to it. And no, the controls are not what's challenging. Certain stages can use the hazards around to make the already frustrating fight that much more frustrating. The array of characters is decent enough, although one should wonder why the heck Golem was included. At all. Being a huge fan of the series I felt disappointed that Richter wasn't included. The storyline leaves a lot to be desired. Through my 2.5 hour playthrough (That's all the time it took, this game is really really short.), I was constantly facepalming at the way they massacred the entire series characters and storyline. Even for an addict such as myself, this game doesn't give one the fix they need when they want a GOOD Castlevania game. Bottom line, while the game isn't as terrible as Simon's Quest, the game was a MAJOR letdown. If you own a Wii, and are willing to spend some extra cash, pick up a Wii Points card and buy Rondo of Blood. Rondo will be the best way to forget this monstrosity. Trust me, I'm a doctor.
It's not the same but it is still great.
As a hardcore Castlevania fan, I was surprised to see a fighter title in the series. But since I have been playing Castlevania sine i was 4, i was willing to give it a shot. Seeing my favorite character on the cover (Simon) also helped to sell it. Once I put it in the Wii and started i found my self mesmerized by the design of the levels how great they depicted the commonly seen levels in the series. The camera style adds to the intensity of the game play. Adding signature moves to the game was a great idea. Along with haveing a mode that has the player doing chalenges to make it through the castle to collect unlocks, There is an arcade mode to unlock players and has the main storyline to explane why the heros and villans have come together and waged war with each other. online is fun, and its a great game to play with friends!
Great Castlevania Game!
I love that it is a fun combat game and I love that their isn't that much weapons. I love the selection for the characters and I'm glad the game has a arcade! However it takes forever to save because you must battle like 7 to 12 people to complete a course. Other than I love this game.
Back to the Castle....YAY!
I kept reading reviews from other sites and magazines that said Judgment is at best mediocre. I most deffinitely disagree. I love this game. Personally I think some of the reasons the characters have for fighting one another is questionable, but the overal plot is good enough for a fighting game. I'm glad there's finally a game that can bring characters like Simon and Maria together in one counsel. (even bringing back some old favorites that havent been heard from in a while like Cornell and Sypha). I love the voice acting in this game as well. I think each character is done greatly with a voice that suits well. The gameplay is fun too, one you get the hang of the controls (personally I use the gamecube controler) you can execute some exciting combos. The new character design is also great, although some don't look like their previous selves (especially Grant) they still look amazing with an anime style that still keeps the dark mood even for the bright pink characters like Maria. So those who've said Castlevania shouldn't be a fighting game, I have to respectivly disagree and say I think they've done an outstanding job.
Great New Twist
This new game is really different from past Castlevania games. This one is similar to the Tekken series. I expected this game to include a lot of characters from the Castlevania series. And to my surprise... IT DID. It had tons of unlockables and included all characters I wanted. The special moves in this game were also a fun twist from 1 on 1 fighting games. These moves are similar to smash moves in brawl. Controls worked wonderfully with the motions and the graphics were good. The only graphic problem that bothered me was the slight darkness in levels where you couldn't see much of anything. Still I gave it a 10 The graphics were amazing. The sound was excellent as usual. The weapons sounded very real and with the new surround sound we installed I could hear everything easily. The challenge was quite difficult I barley beat the final boss who I think you all can guess who that was. And they really picked the best characters there were. I was quite surprised. The story line was hard to follow, actually sorry it was easy to follow but I didn't like the story I guess. There were little details. I put a7 because the put the series characters so nicely together and so many emails to hear the characters. Really a great game.
I started playing the castlevania game series a while ago and they were fun. Then when I saw this I got really excited. Fighting games are my favorite and castlevania is awesome. So you get awesome favorites. But I just hope they put some Cruz in this game because he is AWESOME.
Wow, this game rocks! Very good. If you like castlevania buy this! LIke naruto but better! I dont know anyone who wouldn't like this game. It's not like other castlevania games, it is a fighting game. You get to see old favorites like Simon belmont but with rich graphics that are very detailed! Imagine Simon fighting Alucard. Wow! Sometimes I like to go on nintendo wifi and kill the people that they match me up with! I am having a lot of fun with this and the stages are amazing and detailed. The game is kind of scary because of the 3-d zombies but it is still worth buying. You have to like fighting games like naruto and castlevania games to like this. If you haven't played old castlevania games then you could get confused. P.s. the game disk is not a toilet, I thought it was!
i have played it and am amazed with it!
At the recent Nintendo Power Anniversary Event in New York City, i got a chance to play this game. It is a great game. if you are a fan of super smash bros. brawl than i am positive that you will enjoy this game. The only thing that I noticed that was slightly negative about this game was that the graphics could have been a little better, but hopefully they will polish up the graphics for the full game. The thing imeadiatley noticed was that it was a really easy game to pick up and play. The controls are basic, but don't get me wrong, not at all too easy gameplay. The multiplayer is the part I played and liked it. I hope i there is a campaign, it will match the the fun of the multiplayer i experienced!
