No its not. People just want the old school 2D metroidvania games back since they cant let go of nostalgia. Dont get me wrong, my fav Castlevania is SotN but i also realize not every new game in the series need to be like it to be good. Not all metroidvania games are good either. Mirror of Fate is not a bad game, while far from being the best its still enjoyable and at the end of the day thats what matters.
Haven't played yet, but my expectations are low. I enjoyed both classic and Metroid style Castlevanias, but LoS is the first one I ignored since CotM. I don't like QT events and GoW style garbage. I know this is 2D entry, so I'll give it a shot, but without the gameplay, story, and MUSIC (seriously?), I'm not sure what part of this is supposed to Castlevania. The fact that the characters have the same names?
Well see most of the haters are kidswho only played gba/ds CV games and ignore the fact LOI did the same exact combat first and are ignorant the QTE are the only issue and even then it is not that bad because they are in moderation not prepatch RE6 every minute or two
Yes. The demo was good, but the whole game isn't that great.
I'm so glad I decided to skip it and never preordered.
How do you know the whole game isn't that great then?
Well, not the whole game, but I did play the full game for about an hour on my friend's 3DS. It started to get really boring pretty quickly. And no, it's not because I "moved on to a different genre" or some crap like that. I just didn't like it as much as I thought I would when I played the demo.
