Lover of the series from way back. But, a so-so story and lackluster game play really puts a damper on the fun.
Lack of information leaves you running in circles or "Google-ing" a way to continue your progress. Camera is a hassle at best. The combat can be fun, but it is far from original. So much potential, just keeps shooting itself in the foot throughout.
Play this if you love Castlevania. If you arent a Belmont at heart, its worth a try, but will most likely leave you disappointed.
I always loved the Castlevania classics..SoTN & some of the handheld treasures they put out on GBA and DS. I read some negative reviews on this game here, and after playing for a few hours I can't understand 'em. The graphics are amazing. Combat is simple but still fun. Sure, it's not like the older titles in the series but its a legit entry into what I hope is the new standard for Castlevania. Franchise gotta evolve sometime. I'm knee deep in this one, already thought ahead and bought the steeply priced DLC packs for good measure. Can't wait for the bridge game on 3DS and the true sequel LoS 2. WOW!
