Castlevania trailer looks pretty sick

All of the 3D Castlevania games suck, including Mirror of Fate on the 3DS.

You're quite mistaken, aside from Mirror of Fate which was indeed garbage.

It's a decent action game but I think the lazy platforming (this generation's obsession with slow climbing instead of gameplay breaks my heart) and lack of memorable tunes keep it from being a good CV. Could have been worse? At least it isn't garbage like Mirror of Fate.

I disagree with the "God of War" clone part.

For instance, God of War sucked so bad in every single iteration I've played of it (1, 2, and 3), while Lords of Shadow was fantastic.

It's got some issues. Very poor platforming controls, some lazy, poorly designed boss battles, but the core combat is top notch, with just the right amount of difficulty and a lengthy campaign (full 100% took me about 35 hours).

But really what I love about the game and what keeps bringing me back to it is the story, atmosphere, and setting. There's tons of different enemies, each with their own interesting lore, voice acting is excellent with some notable Hollywood talent (Jason Issacs, Patrick Stewart, Robert Carlye), and the story is pretty compelling and well executed.

I'll be buying it again for 60fps. The DLC is pretty rubbish though.

Wow, this game doesn't even have mouse support! It's Resident Evil 4 all over again

after just finishing the demo its like night and day from the console versions. going from consoles i expected a leap, but not quite this much. 60fps consistent than the 25fps on ps3. non muddy and grainy textures and visuals. the game just feels so much better and its visuals stack up a hell of a lot better. im really interested to see how much better the rest of the game looks like cause the demo is the worst the game has to offer both in visuals and gameplay (very unfortunate that they used the console demo).

as far as the mouse complaints its unfortunate, but at the same time using a keyboard and mouse for this type of game that has fixed camera angles really isnt ideal. its like playing DMC4 with a keyboard, its doable, but an awfully awkward way to play it.
