Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
I just finished this game, and I just had to write a review about it. I loved this game. Its great story, amazing graphics, incredible story, beautiful soundtrack, fun gameplay, and many other things make this game one of the best I have played in a long time.
ONE OF THE BEST GAMES EVER MADE
this game was one of my personal favorite games ever made. it was challenging at some parts of it but i beat it in 3 to 4 days after christmas and i was and yet i wasn't surpised by the ending because my friend got it the day it came out and i think it made some sense that the main character Gagerial turned out to be in the ending credits to being the prince of darkness DRACULA. I can't wait for lords of shadow 2, but i wish that you are playing as alucard but maybe if you beat it as gaberial you will get the choose to play the whole game over again was gaberial or alucard. THEY SHOWED ALUCARD AT THE END OF THE FIRST TRAILER ABOUT CASTLEVANIA LOS2
Lords of Shadows
Although the game's story differs from the original canon series, this is not a Castlevania that should be pushed away because of it. The game is beautiful in many ways. The sound is perfect (actors voices and music), the graphics are great as well, combining awesome animation with real-looking people and beasts, and the gameplay is also something to fully enjoy. I've seen people complain about the fact that the player can't control the camera, but personally I think that it gives the game the original Castlevania style, by making you see only what you should, and at the same time, hiding important items out of the frame, which makes you look for them so you don't miss them. And sometimes the game moves in such a dynamic way that mekes you feel some kind of adrenaline in battle. The game also has puzzles and the option of gaining experience points to buy skills that makes the main character, Gabriel, more powerful. And of course awesome boss battles. The only thing that looks off the game is the fact that we don't spend most of the time in Dracula's Castle, as most of the Castlevania series, but this is for obvious reasons that I will not tell for the sake of those who hasn't play the game. And finally the story, many can find it frustrating because is not the very original story that people have been following since the NES, but the story is so amazing that you stop caring about that fact and just wanna see how it ends. So buy it, you won't regret it, is really REALLY good.
castlevania lords of shadow was an awesome game but i only had it for like a week and im wondering if it is worth trading in Halo Reach Limited Edition and a few other games for it.
The game was amazing can't wait for the 2nd game. The story was a little confusing especially the end cause it never tells you what actually happened to Gabriel no I'm not going to tell spoilers lol.
Great Vampire Werewolf Slayer Game highly Recomend
I picked up this game believing it would be decent but to my suprise it was an actually pretty good game i love the dark gothic style to the castles and surrondings has an errie feeling to it plus the story line has many twists and turns that have you on the edge of youre seat highly recomend to other gamers! I will be pre ordering lords of shadow 2 without a doubt
The game was amazing and so fun!!! I played it on the hardest difficulty on my first try it was kinda easy but still amazing.
get this game
Best castlevania ever. just got this game 2 weeks ago, didn't get it before because of the stupid reviews. if you where born after 1995 you should get COD and play multiplayer online (waste of time) .... if you are a castlevania fan get this game
Frustrating, Annoying, and BLAH at best.
First I have to say that the storyline isn't Horrible, but I'm saying this very tentatively because I have never played any of the other castlevanias so to a fan it may be the worst thing ever.
BUT, the storyline gets pushed aside when the frustration of not being able to control the point of view of the character takes over. I very much Hate when games do that. I find it lazy on the part of the game makers. Though I can get over it if the storyline Good & can distract me from that issue, like Dante's Inferno, which this game did Not do.
Coming in a close second in the frustrating part of this game is repetitive nature of it. Every battle, may it be small monsters on a level or the Boss, is basically the same. I can deal with button mashing games, like Dante's Inferno, but again Storyline has to be good...which this one is lack luster at best.
I am playing it now & honestly don't if I can finish it because it is That frustrating...and I'm the type to finish a game no matter what.
So, Don't waste your money.
This game is amazing.
The game itself has such a compelling storyline. Im playing through the game on the Knight, which is the hardest mode possible to play on without beating it first. The game is 2 discs and its really long which i love. Most games now-days end too quickly. I can see my self spending a LOT of time on this game. You finish a level and then it shows you that you've only completed 27% of it. There are a lot of secrets, upgrades, characters, everything! this game is very under priced for how good it is
