If you like button smashers, you'll love this! The gameplay is very much like God of War and the graphics are extremely beautiful! However, the camera angles make the gameplay very awkward. Many times the camera angle will change but the joystick direction wouldn't match (this makes for falling off edges). Also, having to go back and reply levels once you've earned new techniques is quite boring and waste of time just to complete achievements. All-in-all, I really enjoyed the game and was contantly in awe at the beautiful scenes and environments. Puzzles and mini-games are also very enjoyable. I recommend this as a rental but with very low replay value.

This game was fair, should not be called Castlevania considering in the original Castlevania your enemy was Dracula. This game was very puzzley and also extremely long. I felt on most of the bosses I would face seemed more like they where from Fable or God of War. I beat this game but didn't have as much fun as I expected to. The Achievements were very little for beating the game. There are amazing scenery in this game has a Lord of the Rings vibe to it. The camera in this game were a pain in the neck for me. Felt like I was button bashing the whole time while I was playing the game.
