WOW.... I don't use the word "Epic" often, but here it seems justified!

This might be the first action/adventure I will buy since Ninja Gaiden...
Amazing!

Poor Iga. If you watched the conference you'll know what I mean. :(

I was interested in the game before, i wasn't going to get it at release or anything, but i wanted to see more. Suddenly i want it NOW. Talk about a trailer that sells the game :P

Dark atmosphere, fantastic art design (love Gabriel's look. western Dante DMC), fantastic visuals, music is breathtaking, voice acting being top notch...I can go on.

What I am trying to say is, the game looks fantastic, it could take over NG as a favorite of mine.

Trailer was Epic for sure.

However...

Combat, there is ONE thing I disliked from what I saw in the demo videos.
Some of the attacks you do against a object or enemy, the characters animations stop for a moment and then continues. There is this "lag" in animation on some of the attacks and that is so annoying!
Even God of War 3 had this...it is from time to time, but keeps seeing it just gets frustuating and looks unpolished.
I dont understand why they do this, if it is even on purpose or not, it breaks the fluidness of the movement.

That is the only thing I didnt like about, something tells me they wont fix this.

But everything else is super top notch IMO, but that problem isnt a gamebreaker for me.
Annoying yes, gamebreaker absolutely not.

Damn... I gotta get a console.

I'm actually looking forward to the cutscenes and the story than the gameplay itself. But if the content is rich I'm in.

These trailers looks pretty damn good, but i watched the E3 demo in GT and don't know. Feels more like God of War than Castlevania to me. :(

God of War felt more like Rygar and Shadow of the Colossus, whats your point?

Gods of War isnt even close to be a benchmark in this genre.

Besides if you "plan" on commenting on the "chain attacks" sorry but Rygar AND Castlevania was way ahead of God of War with that.

I dont understand when people say "GoW clone" when GoW is as much of a clone of another game :P

YES!!! Belmont is back. This is gonna be really awsome if they can keep what the trailer promises. I wanna see Dracula till now they hid him or?

I had some expectations for this game. And since I value the story and design more than the actual gameplay - I really like what I see by now.

My point as i previously say is - this doesn't feel like Castlevania game at all. Too tired to play the same action-adventure titles over and over again. Just with different characters and story.
But be happy with LOS man. That is just my opinion. :)

I know what you mean and I dont disagree.

This is how I see it.

This genre is lacking in comparison with all the shooters out there, and I LOVE these type of games because I love fantasy settings and universes.
So as long as these type of games are coming in I am happy, even if it plays the same with a original twist.

IMO, Castlevania appeals to me more than God of War ever has, art design, story and even main character.

They said this is a remake of Castlevania to relaunch the series in 3D, exactly like Ninja Gaiden from 2D.
But unlike Ninja Gaiden, these guys plan on using refrences and stuff that you remember from the classic version into this new version.

And yes, they are even remaking some of the classic music tunes into orchestra, like Bionic Commando, and listening to the old tunes in orchestra gave me gossebumps.

There is no doubt about it..video gaming has come along way and it ain't going anywhere
Commented on 2010-06-17 14:57:07
The design seems good and the gameplay too. 3d models and textures seem a bit outdated, though.

I would like to Shake your hand for that comment !
Couldn't agree more with what you said !

And what most people forgot these days...."there was a time,where Genre existed,these days,all people see and say are clones !!!!"

Rygar was an amazing game,loved it...and GOW was a lot like Rygar...but again,it's a type of game,and I am happy when games come out in my favorite kind of genre :)

More 2 D shooter please !

Which Conference did you mean ? Really would like to watch what you mean.

I respect IGA for all his love for 2D games,
but he is burned out and not much creative stuff is going on his direction,sadly !

Looking at this trailer...wow !
A bit ICO and SOC atmosphere in a Castlevania game would be great.
Campfire,and no music..just the wind howling..yeah !

That was a really cool trailer! suddenly, I don't care about the gameplay anymore. The story looks riveting, like a good TV soapy.
Commented on 2010-06-18 14:09:18
I wish I could see such a "tv soapy", yet the ones I seen is shitty in comparison :P

IMO it reminds me of Van Helsing, and that is never a bad thing considering I love the entire concept of it and the settings take place.

Yes, more than ancient japan, greek/rome...etc.
Commented on 2010-06-18 14:20:13
looks nothing like castlevania should. i'll be avoiding this one.
Commented on 2010-06-18 14:48:34
They didnt say they will remake it from 2D to 3D :S

It is a re-boot like how Ninja Gaiden was on 2D to 3D.

They will have refrences on enemies and other stuff, and remake some classic famous Castlevania tracks into orchestra, those type of stuff.

But sure avoid it because it has "nothing" to do with "Castlevania".
You are probably going to miss a awesome title.
