Castlevania curse of darkness (one of the best HnS/rpg type of game), it had awesome combos, weapon styles, dodge, perfect guard.

Also castlevania LOI was really good.

Lord of the shadows had weak combat, sub-par at best.

Those are pretty much the only ones that are or can be combo based and have any real depth to them. The rest are like dynasty warriors.

I guess you could count AW but not really.

Looking at that list really does make it apparent that this is a niche genre. Geez.

Take that off your list. For the love of God, H&S fans should refuse that as a H&S game.

It is a very niche genre indeed. Though, to be fair, people still have trouble with this "Hack N' Slash" category. Some people prefer the term Beat 'em Up, but not all Beat 'em ups are combo based. Some people would say Heavenly Sword and Dante's Inferno are Beat 'Em Up but God of War and DMC are Action Adventure games.
