What Gamespot Users have to say about Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate

  • Review Score:6.5

    Its fun combat and platforming is hampered by its short length and linear maps.

    The Castlevania series received a reboot and Mirror of Fate continues that narrative with a bridge story from the last game to the next. Before, the stories were complete trash that gives you an excuse to whip your way t... Read Full Review

    Great addition to LoS series. Smooth controls, with fun combat and exploration to be had and a great story!

    First off. I went into this game without the highest expectations. Seeing it at E3 it looked pretty rocky, and the preview videos made me worrisome. Then reviews came out and boy was I upset. It took about a day after it... Read Full Review

    A solid platformer-adventure game, with a threaded narrative to reboot this classic series.

    Growing up with the original NES games, there was a sigh of relief after seeing that the game is in 2D view, yet done with 3D graphics. It gives it a fresh look while still keeping the heart of the gameplay. The majori... Read Full Review

    Coolest 3DS game yet

    I'm not a big Castlevania fan. I played CoM back in 2002 and it was really long and complicated. I mainly gave this a try because of the cool graphics. Without a doubt it is one of the coolest games. The graphics dese... Read Full Review

    Mirror of fate could have been SotN

    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate HD is not SotN, but could have been....maybe! First, the story takes place, if I'm right, 25-30 years after the event of Lord of Shadow on the PS3 and before Lord of Shadow 2... Read Full Review

    Glad to have tried this game

    I beat Lord Of Shadows in PS3 some years ago and at that time I felt that it was one of the best game I've played. As Lord of Shadows 2 was released some days ago and I bought it. I decided to try Mirror of Fate due to ... Read Full Review

    Underwhelming.

    Mercury Steam's take on Castlevania is a refreshing one. Sadly, there's just too little life in this game. It plays like God of War but that doesn't necessarily mean that it's bad. In fact, the combat is smoother than e... Read Full Review
