    Between sloppy design (only a few encounters with spirits and skeletons keep the in-between interesting), a lackluster boss encounter and utterly no resolution as to the game's fantastically out-of-left-field post-credit sequence, Resurrection isn't worth its $10 asking price -- and with the rest of the game as good as it is, average just doesn't cut it.

    Resurrection doesn't live up to its expectations: it should be the epilogue of an epic adventure, yet it fails, shaping itself as a mere extension of the main game. Poorly designed platforming sessions and a non-exciting boss fights are definitely not worth their price.

    This is a poor end to a fantastic game. This DLC consists of two segments, a run-and-hide bit where you avoid falling into lava while hidingThis is a poor end to a fantastic game. This DLC consists of two segments, a run-and-hide bit where you avoid falling into lava while hiding from the gaze of the Forgotten One, both of which will instantly kill you and consist of dying quite often and only proceeding through copious amounts of trial and error. The second segment is the boss fight proper, which is a huge letdown for a game that took such pains to make enjoyable boss encounters. The Forgotten One isn't fun, but rather very frustrating. Firstly, there are no magic or health fonts in the entire chapter, and by the time you reach the boss's final form you're probably out of magic and health. Secondly, the boss's final form can only be hit by aerial attacks, and even then you're probably going to miss more than you hit. Not so bad in and of itself, but any aerial combo leaves you completely vulnerable to attacks. It's nearly impossible to hit the boss without him hitting you back, and since you're probably out of health and magic this becomes very problematic.

    In the end, I swallowed my pride and lowered the difficulty level just so I could beat him, even though I had beaten the rest of the game on paladin difficulty. This boss was just too unfair to beat on harder difficulties.

    And for all this, I was rewarded with nothing. The final scene tells you nothing about Gabriel's transformation into Dracula, or the fate of the world, or anything at all. Merely that the Forgotten One is destroyed, and nothing more. A very disappointing end for an otherwise great game.

Anyways a few days ago I watched the first trailer of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and I got pretty excited about this sequel. Since the prices of the DLCs Reverie and Resurrection were reduced last week I thought I could give them a chance but it was a waste of money: No CGs, almost no new enemies and a boring boss. I was expecting more of the plot and about how the history should continue. Even the promotional price of 6,50 Euros for Playstation Plus members is way to much for such a bad DLC. Full Review »

    This could be the worst thing I've done in my entire life.

    This could be the worst thing I've done in my entire life.

    If you love LoS and want to 100% all three games, just pretend these DLCs don't exist. I know you want to 100% all of it but seriously.. buck it. Don't do it. Don't touch them. They will change the way you are You'll get all serious and laugh less and all that stuff that psychosis do to you.. You wont be the happy kid you once were anymore.
