5.0 out of 5 stars please ignore the silly 1 star review....its 5 stars!, 3 Dec. 2013
Let me start off by saying that rating a product 1 star simply because dlc that is included is on voucher form is nuts. Knocking off an entire 4 stars?! The reviewer even stated its a great game so im not sure how they can justify giving it 1 star simply because of download vs on disc dlc.
Anyway...this is simply a view to the collection product, not the base game. For 25 quid this is a complete steal. The base game still sells for between 15-20 quid. Each each of dlc is about 7 quid and the mirror of fate hd edition cost about 10 quid so ill leave you to do the math. Plus you get a demo of the soon to be released Lords of Shadow 2!
The collection is prob aimed at people who didn't pick the game up originally (shame on you!) and collectors. I myself have the original game and dlc but when I heard this was coming out at about the same time as mirror of fate hd I jumped at the chance. Im one of 'those' collectors. Both pieces of dlc are story related and not just filler though the last one is in my opinion, the weaker but in this day and age its nice to have story dlc. Mirror of fate is love it or hate it I guess. Marking it by a 2d castlevania standard its not amazing. Just average. but as a game and a 10 pound one at that its pretty good! Remember it cost 30 quid on 3ds so again its a real steal! Fills in the story between LoS 1 and 2.
The one and only tiny gripe I had with it is the manual. The original one when the game first came out is now replaced with a simple 4 page one that has controls and warrenty info. Bit of a shame as it used to have character info etc. Like a manual of old! Any gamer worth his weight knows what I mean. but times are changing I guess and these new 'manuals' are now the standard.
This is a great product at a great price and its a 3d castlevania that is finally fun again. We're talking the old skool n64 3d castlevanias here, not the ps2 ones. Go get it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for true fans and a near perfect port, 24 Nov. 2010
I totally agree with the other reviewers about this collection. Three great games that are hard to compare them to something else. Fans of the PS2 versions will be pleased with the the ports. They are near faithfull with only a few minor hiccups. The graphics stand up well today but it is clear that it is just a HD revamp. WW still remains the hardest of the three but is no less enjoyable, aside from the devilish difficulty of the title.
The reason im giving it only 4 instead of the 5 it deserves is the sound bugs.
All three are full of sound bugs. Voices do not play loud enough which is less of an issue if subtitles are turned on though SoT lacks a subtitle feature. Strange 'ticking' noises are also frequented in the first title. Lastly the soundtrack on WW has been slightly changed. Now its just your 'vanilla' guitar riff. Its a bit dissapointing as the original helped you get pumped up for the fights. I honestly cant remember but im sure two godsmack album tracks were featured on the game, now its only one and of that one the vocals have been taken out. Maybe as ubi lost the rights? I dont know But thats just a fanboy rant from someone how enjoyed the original version. Nothing wrong with the music, just not as I remembered.
Well worth anyones well earned pounds and a great showcase of PoP for a new generation of younger gamers.
