    OH
    MY
    DEAR
    LORD.


    Please let this be as good as it looks. Not sure what to make of the cross weapon, is it also a whip somehow?

    Those fights look incredible!
    SO not the Drama.

    Honestly, as good as it looks, it's another 3D Castlevania and I haven't seen or played a good one yet. So I'm not going to keep my hopes up. If it was like sonic unleashed where it had 2D side scrolling levels, then I would be excited.

    Has anyone actually played any of the 3D Castlevania games and thought they were good?

    I enjoyed the first entry for N64, felt that while it wasn't a great Castlevania game, it was a very competent 3D action platformer.

    While I never played the 2nd one I thought the first PS2 entry Lament of Innocence was decent. Nice graphics and decent Devil May Cry type play control (did every game between 2001 and 2007 play like Devil May Cry?).

    Didn't LOVE either, but they were enjoyable romps.

    I enjoyed CV64, CV LoD, and CV Lament of Innocence.

    However, I can't say I really like Curse of Darkness other than the stealing from enemies and creating different items. The game played like Dynasty Warriors in a Castlevania setting which blows. Also, where LoI had alot of hallways and rooms, CoD had to make it more bland by having almost no areas were interconnecting. So the only way to make it all the way to this point on this area would be to walk through the entire stretch of the rest of the area to get to it. Lame.

    i think many people just hear bad thinkgs about c64 and say it sucks just be be with the masses _ I loved c64. the good thing about c64 is it didn't try to be a rpg.it tried to be a pure oldschool castlevaina, only 3d. for it's time, the muisc, open ended castle, the jumping challengees, recreated baddies/bosses and to overall feel was epic castlevaina.

    I hope this new castlevaina ditches the newschool rpg gets back to pure caltlevaina goodness like 1,2,3,4 and 64

    Castlevania 64 was pretty damn good back in it's day and from what I played of Legacy of Darkness (aka the expanded version of C64), it was quite the improvement with the added characters.

    I remember forcing myself through Lament of Innocence, I found it pretty dull and boring for the most part. I got Curse of Darkness a little while back and from what I played of it I like it a lot better than LoI.

    I'm looking forward to this new one, I always welcome a new Castlevania game with open arms.

    Castlevania 64 was great. I recall everyone trashing it back in the day, but I thought it was pretty good. Legacy of Darkness was pretty much a remake, but with added story.

    I was reasonably satisfied with the PS2 Castlevanias, but ultimately they were decent at best and could have been so much more. The limited and nearly non-interactive environments and bizarre plots really held the games back. They looked ok, but were not terribly addictive. I did like playing through with the Pumpkin guy and Joachim.

    For me, Castlevania games need the (real) Belmonts or at least a character with a whip. SotN was the only game that deviated from this formula that really worked for me.
    SO not the Drama.

    I enjoyed Legacy of Darkness, but found Lament of Innocence kinda boring. I'm digging Lords of Shadow presentation and voice work. I can't wait to see more gameplay footage.

    I'll guess I'll play odd man out here and say I still think Castlevania 64 is one of the worst Castlevania games I've ever played. Lament of Innocence had a good main character and decent castle design, but the camera and clunky controls ruined it for me. CoD had much better controls than Lament, but the level design didn't do it for me.

    Then there was that Castlevania fighting game, which I willingful passed up, so I can't comment.

    yeah, the fighting game looked so lame that I don't even consider it a Castlevania game. I passed.

    Consider me officially fucking stoked for this game.

    I'm one of the rare folks that really, really liked Lament of Innocence.

    I'm guessing you didn't like Curse of Darkness either then since you left it out of the post completely? If you liked LoI's awesome gameplay, don't bother playing as Trevor on CoD as you'll be extremely disappointed how watered down and altogether pathetic playing as him is.

    I figure this game would be hated on by people over here. The game looks like a God of War clone mixed with one of Kojimas crappy plotlines.

    So odd, I kinda lump CoD and LoI into the game; they may as well be the same game to me, very similar.

    And I really don't see why so many people are getting bunched up about this new game being like God of War. Wasn't God of War a pretty good game that everybody pretty much went nuts over? I don't see the big deal. Isn't Sonic a lot like Mario? As long as the game is fun and plays well, I don't care if it's a "Win, Lose or Draw" clone (well maybe a little, if it's like that...)
    SO not the Drama.
