Great game!An excellent sequel to the original Lords of Shadow, this brings back the classic side-scrolling action with many updated mechanics. A blend of the action and magic use of the original Lords of Shadow with the side-scrolling action fans will love, this blends the new retelling of Castlevania with classic storytelling. A must for all fans.

Easily One of the best 3DS games EVER! a Must-ReadPlaying Castlevania since the beginning! Loved the music in the original, the RPG style of Simons Quest, the switching in Dracula's Curse, and the 16bits were ok, etc... That said, the series has been OK at best for a while. SOTN was great, but the Nintendo DS replications were too similar to SOTN, and each other. The LOS series have been pretty awesome with some camera frustrations, and similar feeling games (God Of War, Darksiders, ETC), but great graphics, eerie locale, solid gameplay, and great acting... Enter MOF for the 3DS, EASILY one the BEST 3DS games I have played. Action, Blood, Serious, FUN, that is not a kids game. I LOVE my Mario Games, but besides the CRAZY amount of silly RPG's & Kids games, there aren't too many "cool" games for the 3DS. Castlevania LOS Mirror of Fate is sooooooo cool. The 3d in this game has the best depth I have seen on the 3DS, the different settings are done with such detail, and the music score is amazing!!! I say a 9-10 no doubt, AND for the price, you would be silly not to try it!!!!!!

Castlevania Lords Of Shadow/Mirror of Fate 3DSI don't understand why there is so many bad reviews for this game as it is solid all around on all counts (and not just Dracula!) Beautiful graphics, excellent sound, awesome cinemas is just the beginning. you get to play 3 different characters in three different acts that extends the game play. Kind of like 3 games in one but all tied together. As each character levels up this gets passed on to the next so your not zeroing out and starting over. Each character has his own weapons and power ups that further enhances the game play. I totally like the puzzles through out the game and are not so mind boggling you can't figure them out. Some reviews stated the graphics are to dark ? No problem !...just go to setting and adjust the brightness from 1 to 10. Great boss battles and different enemies about in the different scenes you'll play through. I'm 75 % through in this game and don't regret purchasing it.... I just regret I didn't purchase this game sooner !! I place this game as one of the best CV games out there for a hand held. If you want to talk t*rd just look at the weak CV games made for the PS-2 with the forced 3D graphics. you run from room...to room...to room...with not much in between. Here with the 3DS version of CV you get real crisp 3D graphics. Not that fuzzy cr*p from Sony. Download the free CV game through the Nintendo Online store through your 3DS system. Give it a shot then buy the game new or used. If you enjoy the demo I guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy the game. It's not bad and pretty decent to add to your collection of 3DS games......CV Lords Of Shadow / Mirror Of Fate 3D.......Time to lay old Dracula back into his crypt once again !!

A good game for a great priceThis is my first castlevania game, and i think it is pretty good. the game can get boring after killing enemies over and over again, but besides that, I would recommend you check this one out, especially since the price is pretty low for a 3DS game.

I wanted Castlevania, not this garbageIf you have played any of the Castlevania games on the DS, you are in for a disappointment. The developers decided to retool the gameplay and mix in aspects of God of War and Prince of Persia. This has led to a stiff gameplay, which is not a phrase I would associate with Castlevania. Your character takes damage from falls and all combat is based around combo attacks based on a two button attack system. Much of the levels are based around precision platforming, which would not be so bad if the player controls were more forgiving. And if you are looking for memorable boss battles against towering monsters, forget it. Bosses are in short supply and tend to be reused. Another unwelcomed subtraction is the lack of enemy variety. Even the first Castlevania on the NES had a larger variety of enemies in look and behavior. Later games expanded this by varying the enemy life-bars and changing up the attack methods. In this game, every battle is a overly drawn out combo fest. If you liked Symphony of the Night, Portrait of Ruin, or even Circle of the Moon, you will not be happy with this game. My advice, wait for this Lords of Shadows nonsense to end and hope Konami will come to there senses. Or buy a copy of Monster Tale.

A segmented prelude to Lords Of Shadow 2Mirror Of Fate's purpose is to bridge the gap between Lords Of Shadow 1 and 2. It's a segmented campaign split into 3 parts that chronicles the journeys of Simon, Trevor, and Alucard. Even though the gameplay is solid and very reminiscent of LOS for a game that takes place on a 2D plane, don't expect the same depth here as Symphony Of The Night. Each section will take roughly a few hours to beat if you collect everything, but the only difference between each character is their 2 magics and sub-weapons (they all use the same main weapon: the whip / combat cross). There's no equipment to manage, and the max level here is 18.
The graphics are nice for a 3DS game and do a superb job of creating the atmosphere of a haunted castle (the cinematic portions are performed in-engine and have a cool cel-shaded filter on them). There are a lot of climbing and puzzle portions--much like Lords Of Shadow--but there aren't that many enemy types throughout the game, unfortunately. The score fits the motif of each area; nothing too epic--mainly just ambient mood music with some spooky sounds.
If you've played through Lords Of Shadow and would like something to wet your appetite for the sequel, Mirror Of Fate will fill that void. As a stand-alone Castlevania game, though...I have to say this one is a bit disappointing. It gives you a taste of greatness, but doesn't have the substance of other "Metroidvanias" out there...nor does it truly capture the excitement of the older, arcade-style Castlevanias.
