  • Blog Post: Castlevania Lords of Shadow: Reinvigorating the Franchise with an Epic 3D Installment

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

    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a success story following the Castlevania franchises many failures to make the jump from 2D to 3D. Lords of Shadow delivers everything Castlevania fans have been craving in a 3D game since the release of the awful Castlevania 64. Intense combat, engaging puzzles, and breathtaking... 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: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow one of my all time favourite games

    This game impressed me more than any in my recent memory. With its gorgeous character models and environments, and clean satisfying combat. This game pushed the dark gothic art style common in castlevania in a new direction that impressed me with its creativity and originality. the story though seemingly... 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: 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... 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: Breathing New Life Into A Classic

    I've been a fan of Castlevania ever since I first played it for the N64 back in the day. From there on, I dabbled in the occasional vampire-slaying adventure on other platforms as the years went by but none of the titles I played could really grab me like the N64 original and its sequel could. Then... More
  • Blog Post: A Fresh Take on an Old Series

    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... 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: My First Castlevania... What Else Have I Been Missing?

    Stepping into a world that is so well designed in all the elements that make a a great experience is a rare thing to come by. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow offers supreme graphics, sound quality, score, playability, and breathtaking concepts in both the environments to the characters. The voice acting... More
  • Blog Post: Castlevania?

    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... 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: 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
  • Blog Post: New Castlevania Surprises All

    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... More
  • Blog Post: I still can't decide whether i hate or love this game

    First, I would like to start off by saying that I am a huge fan of the Castlevania games, and i was holding my breath when i saw the trailers for this game. I have fun playing it, but it has some flaws such as the camera and even though it encourages exploring, it has been very linear to me. The graphics... More
