I've got about a month off and have a baby on the way and I think I am going to relax and play some games I've never gotten around to as soon as I finish up my latest Heavenly Sword run. I'm looking at Lords of Shadows, but don't know if I want a pure hack-and-slash action game after HS. How, exactly, does the game play?

GoW-esque


Hmm...I was hoping for more. Is it worth playing anyways, especially to an older Castlevania fan?

It's the best 3D one, but it still sucks and if you're an old fan you probably won't like it unless your taste have changed.

its a good action-adventure title in the vain of God of War, but DO NOT expect CV from it.

I hated it. Here's a couple reasons....

I completely get that the Castlevania series has always had some religious undertones, and no, it wasn't all black magic voodoo blood drinking whatever...but Lords of Shadow makes one feel like you're reading straight out of the old testament. Especially in the chapter intros...

Speaking of the chapter intros, the fact that they are voiced by Patric Stewart (Yeah, Jean Luc Picard) is just really out of place. I mean, don't get me wrong, the guy has a very good shakesperean voice, and heck, I even consider TNG my favorite Star Trek series but seriously....this guy just can't do voice over work. His voice is Jean Luc Picard....and that's it!

Sorry man, it's just how it is. I mean, look at Will Wheaton, his CAMEOS's on Big Bang Theory are probably paying his grocery bills right now.

*Wow, I'm a hater*

I dunno, it has a pretty cool ending I guess, I don't mean the final battle, as that was dumb, *omg I'm fighting Satan* but I mean the cut scene in the tower.

If you want to play a gow style game, consider either of the Darksiders games if you've not already played them. (I liked the first one the most)

.....still refusing to give up hope of another Legacy of Kain game. Or at least an HD remake.
