  • I was super disappointed to see a mediocre review of this game in the current issue of GI. How can a game like LOS one fall that far in just a single sequel. I'm never one to play a game or not play off a review but I'm hoping you guys were wrong.
  • GI is owned by Gamestop. GI is advertising the crap out of LOS 2 on their site. Which is also why there is no review up. They release the bad score on the site and it might deter people from buying it. I for one think it's gonna be great, I'm a fan..and I'm picking it up at midnight, but there is something fishy going on : )
  • It got a really low score in the magazine, Apparently after the first mission it is terrible! I'm disappointed, but not very much so considering how many action games like this are coming out this year!

  • You guys have to understand, even if it did get a 7, it's just one person's opinion. You don't have to conform to it. As far as I am concerned, if you like the first one, there's no reason you shouldn't like this one. Rent the game to try it out before making your opinion to buy it or not. Helps a lot to test it out first.
  • It's not like a 7 is bad, mind you. That's better than a 6 or anything below that. I've never played this series but I did want to get into it.
  • I pre-ordered LOS 2 on the PSN to get Mirror Of Fate and a Castlevania theme for free (instantly at that!). I hadn't realized that if you buy a game on the PSN there is no tax!!! If the game sucks at least I got an additional game and theme for free and I'll have something to tide me over until Ground Zeroes hits. I really do need to finish up Peace Walker tho'...
  • I still would like to see a castlevania game that actually shows how Dracula came to be.
  • So amped for this game!

  • Despite the 6 review score in GI, I'm still really looking forward to playing this for myself. I loved the first one!

  • Played the demo, don't believe GI's review for one bit. Already couldn't believe that our own Jeff Cork gave Kid Icarus a 7. Pumped for Gabriel+.

  • So close to being done with the first one. Then I can get this one.

  • Never trust reviews. Play the game yourself and dont trust reviewrs that just prize what everybody says its good. Never been so bored with a game as i was with AC2...honestly amd peple say its n incredible game..i think its boring...Castlevania has something unique .
