Product Description

Platform: PLAYSTATION 3

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow takes place at the end of days. The Earth's alliance with the Heavens has been threatened by a dark and malevolent force - the mysterious Lords Of Shadow - darkness reigns the world. Across this shattered land, the souls of the dead wander unable to find peace, whilst creatures of evil roam free wreaking chaos and death upon the living.

Gabriel is a member of the Brotherhood Of Light, an elite group of holy knights who protect and defend the innocent against the supernatural. His beloved wife was brutally murdered by the evil forces of darkness and her soul trapped for eternity. Neither living nor dead she realises the horrific truth of what is at stake and guides Gabriel to his destiny - and hopefully salvation for the world... but at what cost?

Thus, Gabriel must travel the destroyed world, defeating the evil tyrants in order to use their powers to bring balance back to the world. Armed with the versatile Combat Cross - the world's last hope must encounter the three factions of the Lords Of Shadow and end their unholy rule.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's been a long wait.. it was worth it. 9 Oct 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Castlevania is a very oldschool series and one that will be remembered well through nostalgia tinted glasses of fellow nerds the world over. It's been a long wait for the series to make it's way to the PS3 generation in style; and it looks damn beautiful. If I had to rate this game on graphics and art style alone, it would be right up there with God Of War 3, Uncharted 2, etc. Breathtakingly good visuals and astounding detail.

Gameplay is a far cry from classic Castlevania, but it's a fresh breath of air on the series as a whole and I enjoyed it. Fast paced, brutal fighting mechanics and enough blood and guts to fill at least a few olympic swimming pools. But don't be fooled... this is not just another button masher or devil may cry / god of war rip off. Some truly great things about this game shine right out from the get go - Well known and respected voice actors (Luc Picard aka Patrick Stuart being one worthy of mention among others). Atmosphere is also top notch thanks to the great sound effects, and some very H.R. Tolkien 'esque environments and themes. Story and gameplay are varied and in depth, much more so than games in this genre I felt.

A very fine game indeed. A new look at a classic series, great graphics, great story with great voice acting to boot, great fun combat and challenging little puzzles, breathtakingly good boss fights and memorable environments... the list goes on. Must buy for any true gamer.

However, I always include things I don't like to my reviews....

Combat at times can get VERY tough and overwhelming. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I had to start over on a lower difficulty setting because I could simply not keep up (same thing on God Of War 3). Fixed camera angles are also a bit awkward at times but not game breaking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make no mistake.. This is the real deal 12 Oct 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was never planning to go and buy this game, as far as I was concerned GT was the next game I would buy. But on saturday I happned to be in an impulsive mood and picked this up thinking it would kill a few hours and would have no real replay or immersive value.

How wrong I was...

This game is almost flawless, it oozes quality, every single pixel has been precicely placed and every mechanic works with fluidity and precision. The combat is very satisfying and the camera is clever and sharp (forget the negative comments on the camera, it works perfectly). During boss fights, the way the camera positions itself really adds to both scale and intensity depending on the type of boss fight. In my opinion the boss fights in this are more exhilirating than god of war's, and also more varied and challenging. This game is genuinely challenging which is a very good thing, bosses can take time to kill as you will have to "learn" how to kill them, the puzzles are not obvious either and require actual brain power to complete! A breath of fresh air in my opinion as I was tired of pushing blocks onto switches etc.

The story is engrosing and enjoyable, I's helped along by brilliant voice acting by the likes of Sir Patrick Stuart and Robert Carlisle. I am at least 10hours in and still have 4 chapters left. Each chapter has between 2 and 7 levels within them. They each build up nicely and you are never in a place to fill time, it's all leading toward a short term or long term goal so I havent got bored. Upon completing each level you get a summery screen and the story is carried forward by narration.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUCH A BARGAIN AT THIS PRICE!! 25 Oct 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
WOW! At this price castlevania is superb value. I purchased for 40 quid and dont feel hard done by in any way, this is a game with a beautiful, sweeping score, atmospheric graphics and cinematic camera angles, epic boss battles, superb, satisfying and deep combat and heaps of replayability. First playthrough is easily 15 hours and that is with a fair ammount of skill in the relevant genre, if you take your time 20 hours, and you DO want to take your time.
After the credits (and an awesome twist ending scene/epilogue) roll, there are so many reasons to go back, the game even eggs you on to do so, and you genuinely want to go back and take the end game skills to the beginning and really attack each stage/ pass the trials, get all power ups.

SIMPLY PUT, BARGAIN!
Maybe a little violent for kids and also kinda hectic for the younger player, rental first i would think if you are passing to a smaller child to check.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lord Of Adventure Games 3 Dec 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
With this game now finished, I can say that without a doubt, this is an easy game of the year contender.

In an age where single player games are being whittled down to a four hour run about, that this was an easy 20 hours of pure epic is surely something worth championing. Sure it slows down a bit for the final level or two, but I never felt as if I was having to grind my way forward. It was tough, and indeed some of the bosses could have gone down quicker, but it always played a fair hand.

The combat is regularly enhanced with fresh combos and enemy types, and the puzzles were a good blend of the traditional and the modern. Likewise, the environments never stuck around for long. There was a real sense of progression throughout the game and they've clearly taken a look at how Santa Monica Studio made God of War look as breathtaking as it did.

The titan boss fights were excellent too, and whilst they're never on the same scale as the aforementioned GoW3, they're certainly bigger and more entertaining than most modern bosses.

All in all, whilst the opening and final levels missed a beat or two, and the difficulty ramps up a little too quickly (before you get the combos needed to make a good fight of it) this is easily one of the most finely crafted adventure games of the generation, never leaving the player without a new task ahead of them, or a new environment to do it in. Wrap all that up in a suitably fantastical story and give it production values to rival the biggest names in the business, and you've got a game that anyone with a taste for adventure should stump up for.
