  • Blog Post: SuperKingC77 Review: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

    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... More
  • Blog Post: A great action game with a pinch of Castlevania

    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... More
  • Blog Post: Pretty frickin good

    Though I haven't bought the game yet I have rented it once and believe I have gotten far enough for a review. Basically this is the first 3D Castlevania that gets a gold star from me. Any doubt of this game should be removed. The only warning is dont be expecting any castlevania that you know of... More
  • Blog Post: God of War with a dash of castlevania

    Ugh. I am not gonna bother to write much about this one. Bottom line is its basically God of War with different characters and story. Hack and slash combat is almost an exact God of War clone. Story failed to grab my attention very much. Visual style is appealing to the eye, as is the music to the ear... More
  • Blog Post: Incredible Reimagining turns an Epic Adventure into an All-time Favorite

    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... More
  • Blog Post: Castlevania pulls off 3-D... with blood-soaked results.

    Take everything you know about Castlevania, and toss it to the werewolves. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow has reinvented the structure of Konami's classic whip flailing, vampire slaying, iconic series into something as surprising as it is visually striking. From start to finish, this game never fails... More
  • Blog Post: Excellent Reboot of a Veteran Franchise

    Castlevania: a franchise I've known about since my earliest days of gaming. Though I've had my eye on a few of the titles over the years, I never got around to playing any of them. Like most veteran game series with several entries spread out over multiple consoles, I didn't know where to... More
  • Blog Post: A fantastic reboot and a phenomenal start that the franchise desperately needed- Castlevania is BACK!

    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... More
  • Blog Post: 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... More
  • Blog Post: Review: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

    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... More
  • Blog Post: Castlevania? Where have you gone?

    I really regret saying this, but this game just plain disappointed me. Here's what I had hoped for: A 3D entry to the series that lets you explore the entire castle while retaining the massive amount of rooms, enemies, and weapons you can collect. Here's what I got: A mindless borefest in which... More
