I was at the end of ACT 1 and climbed up the outer tower and went though the glass to beat the final boss of act 1... Won it and then my battery dies... I have to restart from last save spot what is outside the tower... There is a major glitch the game shows i beat the boss so there is no way to get back into that room even though the save spot is before you fight the boss MEANING IM GOING TO HAVE TO DELETE MY SAVE AND START OVER FROM STEP 1.....
as of right now there is no way to fix the bug they responded so BEWARE and WATCH YOUR BATTERY LIFE

Mirror of Fate fails to live up to the expectations established by Lords of Shadow. Keeping in mind the game is meant to be a tie-in between the original and the sequel, it offers little in the way of actual new story or new gameplay mechanics. It is in essence a much simpler version of Lords of Shadow. Breaking it down by parts, the controls lack the polish needed to compete on a system that thrives on it's strong platformers. The combat is incredibly simple and usually just comes down to button mashing Y. Graphically and musically the game doesn't have any moments that really grab your attention. One of the defining characteristics of the Castlevania Series has been the challenge they offer, a challenge that is sorely lacking here. Every other room seems to have a full health and mana fountain, and if somehow you die you will respawn in the room likely a foot from where you died. On top of that bosses have phases so if you beat one part of the boss and die, you start on the next part of the fight. As a whole the game doesn't do anything badly, but it definitely doesn't do anything well and at about 8-10 Hours for full completion it really doesn't offer any replayability. If you enjoyed Lords of Shadow and are looking forward to the sequel it's a good way to pass the time. If you are looking for a good Castlevania just play Lords of Shadow or Symphony of the Night.

This game is pretty good but a huge problem is that if you play it more than, like, a day, it gets boring. There are just more monsters and more and more and more and it gets a bit tedious after a while. I would give it a 6 out of 10, because while the fun of it doesn't last a very long time, it is good while it lasts. Don't play it frequently, but worth your time.
