    If you are thinking of buying this game, make sure you rent it first before spending your money. The controls and camera are broken, the characters are unrecognizable, the story and dialogue are cheesy, and the gameplay is tedious. IGN went pretty easy on it (maybe because they are advertising the game), just read some of these other reviews to get a true picture of how flawed it is.

Awful attempt at a fanservice game, and a very flawed fighter. Expand

    This isn't Castlevania, it's not a 'pleasent surprise' IGN, and it's not cool. It's a obsurd little game with a revealing cover forcing teenage girls to buy it. Now that's just sick, the graphics suck, the gameplay is dissapointing, and the game itself is the equivilant to horse dung. Still want to buy it?

    This isn't castlevania; It's somewhere between a poorly executed and overdone concept and a shovelware like the same pop'n music they had on wii. The gameplay is good and they actually sent the guy who drew Death Note for the characters which means for some strange reason effort is put into it; But the exterior makes me want to fart pigs.

    When Eric Lecarde is a shota trap, Maria's character got spilled all over the wall (Plus her fixation on BOOBS), Carmillia for some reason got featured as a succubus thingy inspite in the real games she is a type of mid boss character, and all of the character designs in general are overdone like a ketchup filled high-quality burger, you know that by instinct that you should avoid this game despite how entertaining the actual gameplay is.

    By the way did i mention that the only things that Konami did any good right now is their music department called "Bemani"? And those games that they do right that were produced now were Arcade games where you won't find in outside Japan or Korea 99% of the time.

    In the list of games I'm dying to play in the Castlevania series, a 3D fighter was about as far from the top as possible, but Judgment was a pleasant surprise.

    As a fighter, Castlevania Judgment employs too many design ideas that are neither well planned nor well executed. It's a strange misstep for the beloved series, one that Konami hopefully learns from.

    If you forgo your expectations of what a Castlevania game should be--or are simply looking for a respectable 3-D fighting game--you should have a good time with Judgment. [Holiday 2008, p.77]
