    Perhaps a new heir to the Belmont Clan?

    As many know Castlevania is a very renowned series in gaming and rightly so since it has spanned 20 years and delivered many stellar games along the way. 2D games have always been the series bread and butter, but 3D entr... Read Full Review

    MercurySteam has taken successful mechanics from combat-focused, character action games and blended it with Castlevania

    I was pleasantly surprised when Castlevania: Lords of Shadow released in 2010 – mainly for the fact that it was a great 3D Castlevania game that I thought would never happen during this generation’s home cons... Read Full Review

    Ambitious game with some annoying flaws

    C: LoS is a very ambitious game. The amount of unique monsters, puzzles and bosses is amazing. For anyone who has played a God Of War gme the formula should be pretty familiar. It's a mix of structured platforming, hack ... Read Full Review

    different, but a bit disappointing

    im a castlevania fan for a very long time, but i hate the DLC so much, a lot of painful and boring retries. The game itself feels like Devil May Cry's Castlevania version. They should figure out a way to make a true 3D ... Read Full Review

    While the overall game is good, the combat is a huge issue.

    Castlevania has been strangely absent from the console scene for a while now, since Curse of Darkness on the PS2 and Xbox to be more precise. Recently, the beloved series has found it's success on the DS, pumping out mor... Read Full Review

    I would play this game just to soak in all the visuals and music alone.

    I wanted to get the game when it launched, unfortunately I got distracted and went off the radar until I got it for cheap recently. I must say, wow, why didn't we hear a lot about this game? From the reviews it made it s... Read Full Review

    If one decides to watch trailers, game-play and read about the game, he/she would not make a mistake.

    Castlevania: LoS was my first PS3 game that I bought, sometime last summer. Before I bought it, I watched trailers, read reviews, saw rating systems and also read what GameSpot thought about the game. All I can say is th... Read Full Review
