Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
Customer reviews are independent and do not represent the views of Zavvi.
Lords of Shadow is a fantastic game. More deep, challenging and beautiful than God of War, its production values are sky-high. With brilliant voice acting by Robert Carlyle and some slightly hammy voice acting by Patrick Stewart, and some artwork reminiscent of (and on a par with) Lord of the Rings, it's one of the most absorbing games released this year. As well as interesting and exciting combat, it includes acrobatic traversal sequences and more unorthodox mechanics such as beast riding and titan battles, in which, similarly to the classic 'shadow of the colossus' you battle incredible giants by climbing them. Heartily recommended.Report this review

I have been waiting for this game for months now and here it is! If you like GOW and metal gear its got a few mixes of it. The battles you have with the monsters from the whole Castlevania series are very much about technique. Still, you will enjoy the sunny hills of long quests to the deep darkest places where no one goes. Level design is excellent - just makes you want to look at the detail than fight the monster coming at you! Each boss battle you start to learn from - but hey ! Mr Kojima (metal gear maker) helped here so its going to be a real boss battle. Did I mention you could also ride a spider..... Replay value is great: A nice game to play over Xmas.Report this review
