As a huge fan of the first, I was tremendously disappointed with this game. No genui9nepuzzles, boring environments and enemies, forgettable boss fights and story, uninspired combat-- it was all so mediocre compared to the first game. Without even comparing it to the first, the questionable design choices and awful attempt to borrow from other currently-popular series just makes this a mess. I forced myself through it, honestly, and the unsatisfying ending makes me wonder why. :(

Was expecting an action packed game, since it's Castlevania branded. I got to fight every now and then "Devil May Cry" style, but this game misses on the design and you end up just mashing buttons. Most of my gameplay was either waiting for story to play out, mashing A to climb around, or rolling my eyes at uninteresting stealth sections.
I feel like this game just tried to mash together cool game mechanics from other popular games, and managed to botch all of them so it's just a mediocre pile of blah. Super disappointed. yet another failure of the Castlevania brand in the 3D action space.
Gave it a 4 because it at least LOOKS Castlevania, and I'm not sure the story is bad (although making Dracula God's chosen warrior on a mission to defeat Satan in current day but also in an old castle is a real stretch for me).
