    Shows a lot of promise but has too many flaws.

    Let's just get right to it. The camera angles are annoying and often you can't see where you are headed or where the monsters are. Once you slay a monster it doesn't matter, they pop right back up the next time you ente... Read Full Review

    C:LoI is fundamentally a good game, with one single drastic drawback: it's a very short game. Fans of Konami's recent titles shouldn't be too alarmed by this, however. Konami seems to have developed a certain level of ex... Read Full Review

    Being a Castlevania fan since the very first one on the NES, I have really been waiting impatiently for this game. Especially around Halloween, it's great to have a Castlevania title to play with. This game does not d... Read Full Review

    Let's get one thing out of the way. Yes, the level design is repetitive. However, that doesn't really detract from the game. Let's not forget that Halo, one of the most popular console games ever, had much more repetitiv... Read Full Review

    GOOD: First of all, this game is awsome. The grafix are amazing, and the gameplay you can't get enough of. The story isn't so bad either. I can't believe they gave it a 7.2 rating.This game deserves a much better ratin... Read Full Review
