    Xcelent game and a great add on in the lords of shadow franchise, great history explain8ng everything about the belmont family and relationship against evil dracula, ideal for waiting until los 2 comes away, the only fails i see were the lazy controls and i think it would be a more deep port, with improved textures and light effects, not just an hd minimun upgrade

    No, it's not "Symphony of the Night", but it might be the most fun you can have for $15.00. I found
    the boss fights surprisingly varied, strategic, and CHALLENGING. Platforming is a joy: precise and
    demanding yet never unfair. You'll enjoy exploring well-designed levels suffused with an eerie,
    suspenseful atmosphere. With the nav. guide off, there's a greater sense of discovery.

  1. Although the game can look a little rough around the edges, it's still a thoroughly worthy addition to the blood-soaked legacy of Castlevania. [Jan 2014, p.94]
  2. It’s not Symphony of the Night, but if you’re a long-time fan, you must whip it. [Christmas 2013, p82]

    It fills up the gap between both Lords of Shadow games quite nicely and the HD-transition is well-done. Nevertheless, the game's a bit easy, the gameplay lacks depth and the story could have been a lot more engaging. It will keep Castlevania fans busy until Lords of Shadow 2 is released, which is the only reason we could come up with to recommend this.
