This game has nothing that resembles the Castlevania that I remember. In fact symphony of the night was in my opinion the last true Castlevania. It had signature music the right characters and you were in the castle. I did not like the mechanics of the Lord of shadows game nor did I like the music I could not even connect with the main character. The intro was substandard, because it did not give you enough background to make a connection with the main character.
I finally decided to rent this game and I'm pretty happy that I did. It was pretty challenging in some parts which I liked because I get easily bored with games that don't give any real challenge. At one point I actually had to lower my difficulty to easy just to get past some regular enemies. It made me mad because I kept dying like 5 or 6 times in a row so I switched and even on easy it was still kinda challenging. The graphics were pretty good. I really liked the scenery in some places. Some of the boss battles were pretty awesome too. I really enjoyed the story. For some reason I saw part of the ending coming though. Overall I give this game an 8.
