Just picked up Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Have been a Castlevania fan since the old Nintendo 8-bit days.
Thanks for the turn onto this DJ3xclusive

the last hack and slash games... ok.. DmC the new one I think is really good... I also love Ninja Gaiden I and II... never played III... huge fan of God of War I, II, and III. And I didn't hate that this game had the chain, that is something that is part of the Castevania series.. they just did a poor job in the mechanics of it.
yes.. the link I gave had a 81.84... many of those reviews, were about a 7.5 / 10... there were a couple that really liked, but they were from smaller websites, not very popular ones, where ign.com, gave it a 7.5/10. Not to say I haven't played games below an 85 or anything, but for my money and time, I prefer more generally liked games. Ok.. perhaps I exaggerated the HORRID thing in retrospect, but I just didn't like it.. so I guess it was HORRID. For me. And apparently quite alot of other people.
Well my biggest reason for not liking it... and I really wanted to like it, as I liked SOTN and older Castlevania titles, were the controls. It felt very sluggish to me. I hope the developers do better with the next game coming soon.
**most things in the games are very derivative of other games.. like God of War
**fixed camera was very annoying
**combat was mediocre for me

the problem is with people saying a game sucks, and not giving any reasons for it.
What was the last hack and slash game that you enjoyed?
edit: Oh and that link you just gave had a ranking of 81.84, that's not even close to horrid

Now being an adult, with limited time to play games.. I try to play games that are really worth my time personally. Sorry I had an opinion that was different than yours. Enjoy your game. =)

I had the same problem with them last year. I finally canceled the order and had my card refunded - then it came in the mail. oh well
I called them back to let them know I recieved it but they put me on hold forever so I said screw it, they can pay me for my time with the product.

HORRID? Really? You want to play a horrid game...go play mind jack. People don't know what horrid really is. I remember a game I played as a child that was so terrible it gives me nightmares even today. Its called Omikron the nomad soul.
I don't think it ripped off god of war at all, Castlevania always had a whip wielding protagonist (except for SOTN and handheld titles). What exactly did it rip off? The quick time events? Many games do that, should we consider every third person shooter a rip off of RE4? That game brought light to the 3d person shooter.
So what were you're problems with the game? You say it was a terrible ripoff, explain what was terrible? I'll tell you what I loved:
*The story was unexpected, no one could have predicted the last boss battle.
*The bosses were FUN and very engaging. They were crafted very well. They were challenging but not cheap in difficulty.
*The combat was very strategic and it was not a button masher. You needed to use you head and tactically use your moves. It is also important to note that I liked the heaven/hell system (which the new dmc: devil may cry copied) and how each had cool moves that euther replenished health or damaged alot of enemies.
*The combo system actually had a point in giving you more heaven/hell orbs, letting you use your special meter more often.
*The ending was the best Castlevania end of all Castlevania's and I CAN'T WAIT for LOS 2
Last but not least, the majority opposes your opinion as this is the highest selling castlevania of all time. Even higher than SOTN, which many believe to be the best in the series (I like them both).
So don't discourage people from buying an amazing game (at a crazy low price...since I payed full price for it) because you thought it was HORRID?

|mattraven||Can anyone else verify if the Triple Pack (Limbo etc)'s MS pts code would've expired? If it's still good, that's a no-brainer.|
