Castlevania Lords of Shadow: Reinvigorating the Franchise with an Epic 3D Installment
on August 10, 2013 at 01:38 PM
Reimaginings and reboots of familiar franchises is something that gamers have seen a lot this generation. Just this year we saw a fantastic new retelling and direction for Tomb Raider. Titles such as Batman Arkham Asylum and the 2011 Mortal Kombat game are all great examples of developers trying to do...
SuperKingC77 Review: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
on July 12, 2012 at 09:01 PM
Castlevania is one of those legendary titles that is instantly recognizable to nearly any gamer. Throughout its quarter-of-a-century history, the franchise has received massive popular and critical acclaim matched by very few series in gaming… at least in the 2D realm. Though many of its 2D entries...
A great action game with a pinch of Castlevania
on February 15, 2012 at 09:21 AM
Lords of Shadow is a good and at the same time sad new entry in the Castlevania series. Good because it is, undeniably, a great game; even if most of it's mechanics are borrowed from other series like God of War and Devil May Cry. Sad because it represents a departure from many aspects that defined...
Waiter? Sequel, please.

(Attn: Major Spoiler alert at end of review) Wow, what a great game. Full disclosure, this is basically the first Castlevania game I've ever played. I'd messed around very briefly with one or two a LONG time ago as a young kid, but this is the first one I've actually gotten into. So take...
Incredible Reimagining turns an Epic Adventure into an All-time Favorite
on February 03, 2011 at 10:59 AM
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is the game that bleeds fresh blood into the 20 plus year history of the Castlevania franchise. Like many other classic titles made famous on the Nintendo console back in the 80's, Castlevania has suffered from not following a timeline or staying true to one. The Legend...
A Fresh Take on an Old Series
on January 02, 2011 at 08:53 PM
I finally finished Castlevania: Lords of Shadow right before Christmas. I started it when it came out, but too many other cool games came out that distracted me away from Castlevania. I really enjoyed Castlevania. It did a smart thing by de-tangling itself from all the other Castlevania games. This worked...
A fantastic reboot and a phenomenal start that the franchise desperately needed- Castlevania is BACK!
on December 28, 2010 at 09:36 AM
Being a huge Castlevania fan, i was hoping that the series was eventually given an A star treatment, especially after the series had become lacklustre with an endless amount of hand-held "Metroidvania" clones. The 3D ones of the past hadn't been amazing but a solid start, having enjoyed...

Alright so I'm going to throw out that I've been a Castlevania fan since I was a kid. I was kind of excited to hear about Lords of Shadow as it was a newer approach to the classic Castlevania. I am not going to lie though, I hated this game when I first started playing. I didn't like anything...
Really really impressive! (PS3)

So he's not a "classic" Belmont. So the game borrows from God of War, Uncharted and Shadow of the Colossus. So what? I can honestly say I don't care. Mercury Steam took a 2D game from 1985 and turn it into a 3D thrilling, albeit linear, gaming experience. Now before I get into much...
Review: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
on October 19, 2010 at 10:52 AM
The newest Castlevania foray into the world of 3D is not what you would expect, although that is not necessarily a bad thing. It is common knowledge that the previous attempts for the series to break out of its 2D stereotype were met with contempt and disdain. However, Mercury Steam has succeeded at...
New Castlevania Surprises All
on October 16, 2010 at 09:19 PM
I must say that I was quite surprised when I really got into the new Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. I had my doubts going into it (I’m sure everyone else did too), what with the lack of good 3-D Castlevania games on the market and the not so compelling story Castlevania has a knack for repeating...
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow quick review
on October 14, 2010 at 02:43 PM
Anyone that is a Castlevania fan or just played SoTN might have thought this was a must have. I thought the same thing until I played it and it felt like a God of War spin off. Sure, I think the God of War series is nice but, Castlevania is pretty classic. With the story normally being same everytime...
