This review is from: Castlevania - Lords of Shadow (PS3) (Video Game)
All I can say is everything about his game is amazing!!! The graphics are way beyond what I expected. There are flawless transitions between game play and cut scenes. The game play is addictive even the story is great. This game ticks all the boxes for me. I thought that Castlevania symphony of thee night was the apex of the Castlevania games but this one is better. Even though the atmosphere of the game is amazing example in the swamp scenes, there are eerie whisperings in the background. The game even managed to live up the age rating you see blood splatter enemies explode, and Mortal combat style fatalities.
My wife who hate me playing video games was amazed and could not take her eyes off the screen if was like watching a movie for her. In some games one you bet past the intro the rest of the game does not seem to live up to the hype. As soon as I complete a level on this one the next one just seems to get better. There are only two complaints I have about his game it is pretty easy to get lost or can take a while to find the right path. I think an in level map is desperately need for this game; and the throws and finishers are not well explained I was smashing the first Troll for an hour before I realised I only had to press X when the circles intersect. I was pounding the X button in frustration wondering why the freak kept beating and countering me when he was finished. Aside from that Great Great Great game!!!!
