Excellent

good game

The game has great gameplay and bosses but the story messes up the castlevania lore by having three protagonist,s of three different castlevania games exploring the same castle. the game is a good rent and has a cool final boss. even if you're not a castlevania fan you should still check out the game

I actually really enjoyed this game. The story line was good and the game play was fun. i liked the boss fights they were challenging but not too challenging to where you just wanna give up. Once again, good game I definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a game with a good story line and fun to play. Also its pretty long so thats another plus!!

This game's story was written by some drug addict who obviously didn't know the story of Castlevania! Leon Belmont lived in the 11th century! Which was 1001-1100
Gabriel belmont is supposedly his son which would put him in the same time period! Trevor Belmont lived in the 14th century which would be 1301-1400, a hundred years later 1401-1500 Simon Belmont lived and fought Dracula and he returned a hundred years later to fight dracula again in 1501-1600!! Fifty years later Juste Belmont Simon's grandson had to fight against dracula in order to save his freinds! and then near the end of the 1700's close to the 1800's Richter Belmont fought dracula and five years after that Alucard awoke to recue Richter from a mind controlled effort to bring Dracula back again. Now here comes the Lord of Shadows series to screw everything up!!!! You can't just discard what is canon and expect to be taken seriously!!! The Lord of shadows series is an abomination on Castlevania as a whole! Thanks to the folks at mercury-steam the castlevania series is going down the drain and this games story is proof of it! The castlevania franchise needs to return tro its roots; AS IN ROOT-CANON!!! The lore of castlevania is quite rich and epic it doesn't need to be rewritten for five year-olds who don't understand or comprehend time! They have made dracula into a laughing stock, and they have insulted the legacy of the Belmont family(sigh). As a fan of the old series I am insulted by this re-invented story. The graphics are quite good which is what adds to the Tragic factor(not to say that there is anything wrong with the old school graphics mind you)! This game becomes a joke at times story wise, and some of the laughs seem to be intentional, but the rest aren't.. Gameplay starts solid, but quicktime events ruin it! This isn't God of War people! This is Castlevania, so take your quick-time events elswhere, and quite trying to ruin the canon of caslevania! Try before you buy, you are warned!
