Juutas Reviews: Castlevania -Lords of Shadow-

Lords of Shadow will be having a long waited sequel later this month, I thought I would review the Ultimate edition of the game that rebooted the classic Castlevania series, so people who have not played it yet have still time to get hyped for Lords of Shadow 2!

    Robert Carlyle should do more games.

    1. Juutas says:

      Yeah, I think his voice has nice potential for more voice acting in video games.

  2. Hatsune Miku says:

    I loved the story to this game. But absolutely hated the gameplay. I lucky I finished the main game and both DLCs.

    1. Juutas says:

      I’m proud of you that you struggled through something you hated ๐Ÿ™‚ guess you wanted to know what happens in the end?

  3. Castielle says:

    Wow! Another great review man. I really want to play this now. Haven’t played Castlevania since the original…man that was a long time ago. That game used to scare the crap out of me.

    1. Juutas says:

      You mean the very first Castlevania from the 80’s? those retro mechanics scare me too, haha!

  4. RANT says:

    They really should stick to 2d, not that it’s a bad game, it’s just meh imo.

    1. Juutas says:

      I miss 2D Castlevanias as well…I haven’t played the mirror of truth (it got so bad reviews from everywhere) or the 3DS ones (Portrait of Ruin and Order of Ecclessia), so it has been a while since I got that sweet 2D Metroidvania high~

  5. Hatsune Miku says:

    I agree with Rant.

  6. Fexelea says:

    I got this game and was enjoying it alright, but it did not feel like a Castleavania game and I found the clunky mechanics very lacking for what is supposed to be a precision execution fighter. Aiming for the platinum, I found some of the challenge rooms tedious because of invisible pixels and bad renders, and this ultimately made me put the game on hold. I don’t think I will be picking up Castlevania 2 unless the developer has made significant changes on its approach to gameplay polish.

  7. Juutas says:

    It didn’t feel like a Castlevania game, but I think it was still pretty solid adventure game.
    I have nothing against 3D Castlevania as a concept (Hell, I actually enjoyed Lament of Innocence and Curse of Darkness) but I too would like to see some decent budget 2D Castlevania in the future.

    1. Fexelea says:

      Nice video to make us think about it though!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. Juutas says:

        Thank you Fex, I will be reviewing the sequel as soon as it comes out,
        so let’s see if they are able to fix the issues the first game had ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Ahhotep1 says:

    Okay! I am now hooked into giving this game series a try. LOL
    Nice video and review Juutas!
    You never fail to enlighten, intrigue and entertain!

    Some advice, plz. What should be my noob game progression? Start at game 1 and play my way through…or does it truly matter?

    1. Juutas says:

      Thank you for the kind words ๐Ÿ™‚
      If by game series you mean Castlevania games I would suggest you would start with the strongest ones like Symphony of the Night or Aria of Sorrow ( my favorites ), but Castlevania is a great series in a sense that every game is it’s own story really so it’s easy to hop in to any game of the series.
