    A vastly better game than Lords Of Shadow 2, that smooths the rough edges from the 3DS original and proves that Castlevania need not revert back to a niche retro franchise.

    Like the series itself, there's satisfaction to be had in sticking to the well-worm path. [June 2014, p.91]

    Castlevania done right on PC.

    Castlevania Series has never done the 3D worlds with great success. But its 2D worlds has been good. This is
    the same. Combat is free flowing and fun. Load times and problems is nothing and quick. This is the best PC release to date and the best Lords of Shadow game of the series. If you like 2D world of this product feel free to purchase this game it is a lot of fun.

    Please note this Review was made on a 1-5 7000 series Radeon Card if you have this or better you will have no issue playing this game.

    The old classic style with improvements as combos and nice graphics.

    This is a really good game, i would be great if they added the 3d
    option, but still ok. Expand

    After playing Dark Souls 2 i almost forgot what it's like to play a good fantasy game. Furtunately, a new Castlevania turned out to be nothing but a masterpiece. This game is beautiful, all the locations are amazing, this is one of the few games that i enjoyed exploring through and through. Transition of modern LoS gameplay into the 2d perspective played out flawlessly, the combat is fast, flashy and dynamic, platforming is very precise and addicting and visually the game is great, simple and beautiful. The story is ok, some nice drama here and there, as well as humor. I always liked the story of Belmonts bloodline and their eternal fight with Dracula. Characters are great, except for Simon, he's a dumb barbarian now for some reason. The soundtrack is similar to the original LoS which is not bad. In the end, Mirror of Fate made me very happy and left an awesome impression, which grown after i had played Bound by Flame, that tird is far from a good game. It's sad when among 3 new fantasy games 2 are bad, but i guess it makes us value the good ones even more. Expand

    Pleasant Art style,Beautiful music, Interesting characters of the Castlevania series to play as and solid plat-forming game play make this game well worth the asking price. Its riddled with secrets and places/objects to collect when you are able to later on making the replay value high. All in all 9/10 Expand
