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

  • User Rating 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 excus...

    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 ...

    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 g...

    Coolest 3DS game yet

    Rated on December 05, 2013 by SBF9304

    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 game...

    Mirror of fate could have been SotN

    Rated on February 24, 2014 by Rooten

    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 bef...

    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 Mi...

    Underwhelming.

    Rated on March 23, 2014 by gba1989
