okay so i played this game and i have REALLY enjoyed it i mean the graphics are sweet and combat is great can be a bit iffy at time and the only reason for that is you have no controls over the camera angles which can be annoying at times but when you get used to it the game is a blast, storyline is great and there is a replay value with trials and getting all gems. great pick up and I would recommend it

  epic!

first impressions of this game was that it was a cheap version of god of war or dantes inferno. how wrong could i be!!! this game is epic with fantastic landscape graphics and a great story line narrated by Patric Stewart. 12 chapters in total each made up of several stages. not the hardest game in the world but loads of fun killing plenty of werewolves, vampires and the walking dead! cant grumble with the price either!

  Castlevania Rocks!

This game is a real gone fantasy game with good graphics, good story and first of all good fighting techniques.

Well done Gabrriel...I mean Dracula :P

  In a word.....Brilliant

There is not a lot to say about this game as it excels in every department. Graphics, gameplay, controls, storyline, sound, replayability, all of which are quite simply put, brilliant. If you love God of War and/or Dantes Inferno, you will love this.

I really looked forward to this, but couldn't get into it.
After 2 chapters, I had enough and stopped playing it.
Love GoW and Ninja Gaiden, but somehow this felt very weird.

The story is extremely slow in the first 2 chapters and the titans are a bore. I guess this game just lacked the wow-factor.
Everything is seen before and nothing is done in it's unique way.

Really trried to like this, but I failed.

I got this game from a friend for christmas and,having never played GOW or the like, doubt i ever will.Because there is non way that they will ever match how amazingly brilliant this is.And very few games ever will. well done,mercrysteam and hideo kojima!

  EXCELLENT ACTION GAME

| | See all PJRed99's reviews (118)

if play had halves id give this 4 n a half but as it is i think 4 is good enough.
the game plays well,combat is good,game and story are interesting and the levelling up plus replay value are great points.
only minus side for me is the game feels pretty linear and after playing god of war trilogy and ninja gaiden sigma 1 & 2,id dosent feel as fluid as them but still,if your heavy into action adventure games like i am then castelvania is a top purchase.
