Is the hate for Castlevania justified?

It isn't justified. People are complaining because it isn't the bland castle dungeon crawler they remember with Tuxedo fancy man with a cape and long white hair.

Or the gameplay is just terrible with bad controls.

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.


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.


Bad taste.


Which such close-minded answers, I think I can easily rest my case :)

Don't believe the people on this forum, just try the demo and chose yourself.

the more i read these topics, the more i think that some of the people did not read the reviews. if this game was really that great, why would you question the scores of other game reviewers not giving it a 10/10

My opinions are facts! Games I dislike are automatically bad! If you don't like what I like you have bad taste!

I just won the argument. Lords of Shadows is terrible.

The game in itself is average to slightly above average. It's not the best, but it's not terrible either. And for Mercury's FIRST handheld game mind you, it isn't a failure. And I liked the story even if it was predictable.

And I quite enjoyed the combat. Boss battles were my favorite part about the game.

And Simon because he looks so awesome.
