Derivative yet delightfulMadDemon64 | Jan. 5, 2015 | See all MadDemon64's reviews »
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow takes several cues from other video games and mixes them all together in a coherent package. It is a solid game that manages to be above average despite its derivative nature.
Castlevania: LoS goes back to its roots and does away with the exploration of previous titles, instead favoring numerous levels in a style similar to the first games in the genre. In these levels you will have to fight your way through numerous enemies God of War style and traverse environments Assassin’s Creed style, with the occasional boss fight that may force you to climb on top of a giant enemy and attack them in various spots Shadow of the Colossus style. Despite the gameplay mechanics of each of the three aforementioned styles not being as fleshed out or as deep as the mechanics of the games they are based off of, they manage to come together well.
The story is at first very simple, but becomes more complex as you learn more about the history behind of your enemies. Sadly final plot twist and final boss come out of left field; there was no build up nor mention of them until it happens, and it feels as out of place as Necron did in Final Fantasy IX. Additionally, the DLC content, while welcome, seems slightly out of place and doesn’t mesh as seamlessly into the story as it should, especially given the sequel bait cutscene at the end of the game.
Castlevania: LoS is a decent game that should manage to hold your attention while you play it, but might not stick out in your mind after you are done.
Killer Game!!DarkSparda | Dec. 26, 2014 | See all DarkSparda's reviews »
Oh my God! I am a big fan of Vampires/Dracula. I really enjoy series/movies/games made on Vampires. Had played few such games and enjoyed few of them. But this game is epic, full of action. Epic action and combat. Let forget about graphics for a minute. This game is one of it's kind. Fantastic story/gameplay. For me it's the game of the year.
If you like games like Devil May Cry, then this is a game for you. After playing this game you would forget about other games. This game would give you a really good time.
Note: This game is not for Faint Hearted.
If you can take the heat then play this game. It's going to be the best games you had played so far. Regardless of few bugs in the game.

Well, with all the mixed reviews, I will say this, everything you read on the other reviews is pretty much true and sums up the experience as a whole. Now, for me, did it make me think it was a mediocre game or a good game? I say this is a good game but it didnt live up to all the potential it could have. There is plenty here where you will feel you didnt get enough for what is there, but do not let that ruin it for yourself. It is worth picking up, it is worth playing, so pick it up and play it.
God of Transylvania...anticerber | Dec. 21, 2014 | See all anticerber's reviews »
Lets just get the bad out of the way right now.....The game doesn't feel like any Castlevania played before...and I don't mean that flatteringly....It's not like the original unforgiving, tough as nails side scroller that was the first Castlevania...nor does it feel like the awkward Simon's Quest, adventure type, or the interesting (in my opinion) darker 64 version that put more of an emphasis on story, or not even like the popular genre dubbed (Metroidvania) where you make your way back and forth through the castle gaining abilities to access further in.....
This game's fighting style feels like God of War....enemies coming in small groups that you have to fight off....QTE out the rear....Then there are giant battles which are basically SotC rip offs..they are poorly done and most agree .....
Allllll that aside.....the game....as just a game...is pretty good. The story is interesting, from start to finish, the landscape is rather breath-taking. The fighting is smooth and responsive, creatures are well designed, and everything seems rather polished...If you're looking for a new Castlevania to play.......you might be a bit let down...if you are just looking for a fun game to play....this will be a great title.
Terrific 3rd person combatvipe_1 | Dec. 2, 2014 | See all vipe_1's reviews »
Let me begin this review by stating that I had no experience with the Castlevania series before this game. This game looked interesting, and is actually a terrific third-person action game that is fun, yet challenging.
The game looks great, sounds great, and plays very well. Environments are diverse, enemies are varied, and the game requires the player to learn what works well against a certain enemy, and what doesn't. Powers and abilities are suitably fun, and the effects are very well done. Bosses are difficult enough and unique.
The story is dark, with a range of tones, and engaging. Newcomers to the series won't feel left out or confused.
I found completing this game to be a suitable challenge, and while not as much of an achievement as say, Dark Souls, still very rewarding. Those unfamiliar with the Castlevania series may find this a great gateway into this series.
