If you're looking for Classicvania or Metroidvania you'll be disappointed. Like Lord of Shadows, it's basically God of War vania.

We really need a legit Castlevania game on the 3DS, be it a Classicvania or a Metroidvania I don't care, we just need a real Castlevania game.

I really liked it. Granted though, it's not a very long game and is a little feature-sparse.

When the 3ds was first announced i had imagined how awesome it would be to play games like Dawn of Sorrow and Portrait of Ruin in 3d with Medusa heads seemingly floating in air with the 3d effect and such.

played the demo and it did seem kind of off for a Castlevania game but i figure demos rarely do the full game justice.

Didn't much care for the PS3 Castlevania that was released last year and was hoping everyone hated it so much Konami would just go back to the old design,was hoping this was that game.

Uh, Lords of Shadow came out in 2010. And it was awesome.

The funny thing about MoF is that it genuinely has more Castlevania DNA to it than its predecessor. Given how much people tend to just immediately dismiss the game I wonder why the developers even bothered. CV fans are so fickle.

MoF is basically the successor to LoS, so if you didn't like that you likely won't enjoy MoF. The demo, while obviously just a demo, still gives you the jist of how the game plays. It's basically a 2D version of LoS.

I agree with this. The game could use more content, but it's really a fun game with good action and a sense of character progression. The story is decent as well.
