Excellent

The new Castlevania is pretty epic

So if you're a fan of the god of war games, then this game should grab you right away. God of war type battle system meets prince of persia type environment interaction(climbing on ledges, balancing while crossing beams, etc). Gameplay is very smooth and there are practically an infinite number of combo strings that you can put together so once u get they hang of it, get crazy! And a word of advice, make SURE u explore EVERY part of EVERY area if u want to max out Gabriel by the end of the game. Don't wanna give too much away so I'll just leave it at that. Definitely an enjoyable game, HIGHLY recommend checking it out.

Castlevania Lords of Shadow

This game was truly a beauty. The graphics and landscaping are something to stop and take a look at alone. The

story wasn't anything like another Castlevania game. Story and gameplay was solid! I thought it was a mix of God of War, Devil May Cry,

Shadow of the Colossus. If you bought any of those games, I would consider buying Lords of Shadow.

Pros-
Graphics
Story
CASTLEVANIA?
Combos
Voice acting (Robert Carlyle,Jason Isaacs,Patrick Stewart)

Cons-
Camra angles
Button masher
No map direction ( Go on you'll figure it out! )
Puzzles are easy

It's not often that I get a game that I thoroughly enjoy as much as this one. I played it non-stop for two days when time allowed. I finished it and I wanted more. I think gamespot truly underrated this one. I can't believe they gave Darksiders a 8.5 and this got a 7.5. IMO this is a 9plus and darksiders is a 6.5 -7 tops. This game has it all. Platforming is fun and they said it was very frustrating on a couple of reviews but aside from a few places, i didn't really feel that badly about the platforming. The combat is really nice with a lot of combos to do. I only discovered some things I was capable of doing towards the end of the game. There are plenty of boss battles in this that are nice and intense, also many mini-boss battles and huge boss battles (titans like from shadow of colossus.) The puzzles are pretty hard and make you think a good amount. The story is very good and solid, the graphics are absolutely amazing, and will have you looking in awe and the characters are well-crafted and very interesting. The only draw-back is the camera at times. But that's something you can expect from a fixed camera, and sometimes the controls feel a little bit out of place, but still pretty solid. Play this game, you won't regret it, sometimes the reviewers don't know what they're talking about, this game is anything but mediocre.
