Is the hate for Castlevania justified?

It's so bad it made me want to go back and replay Circle of the Moon, an actual GOOD game.

I hope this style of Castlevania succeeds and continues like this for the rest of the series. Just to annoy all the haters, haha.

I think this game is great. I'll probably buy it, but I wanna secure MH3U first.


Same. And I hope they never make another Metroidvania, hopefully LoS takes over as the main series and the haters can't do **** but cry. :3


You're just as terrible as the ones blindly slamming the game.

Yeah, Western developed Castlevanias and Devil May Cry just cannot be good.

Inbefore: Lords of Shadows. No, it was pretty but terrible combat mechanics. It sucked.

Of course not. Not Metroidvania = people will find any reason to hate this game, even if LoS WAS an awesome game, and an awesome Castlevania too. It's the same reason people hated Castlevania 64 back then. It's different, so it's bad.

yeah, grasping at straws now again. Metroidvania is fine, classic castlevania is awesome too. It doesn't matter what type it is as long as the gameplay is good. This new 3DS is terrible and so is Lords of Shadows if you had ANY CLUE about ACTION games with good gameplay like Bayonetta.

C64 had horrible gameplay (combat and platforming that sucked), that's a fact.

Not at all.

I personally don't have much interest in it as I'm a big fan of the Metroidvania style, but that by no means makes this a bad game. Demo seemed fine and the reviews are turning out pretty good. This is just another example of coddled gamers being unable to accept that something they liked has changed in a way that's not for them and then being unable to move on.

No, that's an opinion. Castlevania 64, and Legacy of Darkness in particular, are amongst my favorite Castlevania. In fact, if it was not for them, I think I would not have go much deeper into the series. This is why you should never trust the 3DS board when taking decision about buying a game. They just love to hate what is different than what they wanted, and are very vocal about it for all the wrong reasons (I remember the pointless hate for Paper Mario Sticker Star too, just because it was not TTYD). For Mirror of Fate, there's a demo, if you like it, then buy the game and ignore the very vocal hater on this forum. Obviously, those who like the game will not post as much as those who hate it.

Why is everyone hating it?
It's not Metroidvania, it's returning to the greatness the series used to be, shouldn't you all be happy?

Considering it's LoS, yes.
