Due to a rather abject lack of free time these days I've not been able to complete and review Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, so instead I'm doing this good old "First 10 minutes" (and more!) with a few videos and my impressions of this game. More inside!
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is without a doubt one of the most polarizing games of this generation. Here is a game that can happily claim to be one of the most beautiful titles of the generation, but also one of the least smooth. It comes along with a very interesting combat system, but also a rather strangely imprecise control system during the platforming sequences, and, above all, a highly annoying fixed camera system. It seems that in every compartment of the game, there is an unfortunate "but" to contrast with what has been well-executed.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow could have been very close to being one of the best of its genre for this generation, but its numerous defects keep it from getting up there. Personally, my main motivation to keep playing is its amazing artistic direction and its interesting combat system. This is what makes me want to go on, despite the not so clear (at times) platforming system, the rather obtuse (at times, again) puzzles, and all of these little annoyances.
But its DICE so alot of patches and changes will do change alot of things, so its interesting to see what they do. (1 minute ago)
Since i am a run and gunner type of guy the smg's are weak and takes too many bullets too kill someone, especially whoever is on the damn horse which i hope they lower the HP on that thing. (3 minutes ago)
Battlefield 1 = bolt rifle/sniper heaven focused game. The SMG is weak as fuck in this game, i keep seeing alot of single shot rifles and snipers majority of the time. (4 minutes ago)
I don't think I was bashing the game though.. I enjoy it. It's a solid effort! Overwatch is GOTY. (1 Hour ago)
@asdfg: Yea I can't believe anyone takes MP reviews seriously tbh.. I mean I respect the opinions of top players.. but some are media folks too so there are still issues (4 Hours ago)
Whole thing stinks of semi bribery games journalism. (4 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: they review them at EA offices for a couple of hours. How can they truly test it in that amount of time and discovering flaws in a closed controlled test environment. (4 Hours ago)
