Castlevania Lords of Shadow

I just played through Castlevania SotN today (189% with no guide after not playing for about 6 years ) and I'm in Castlevania mode now. Is Lords of Shadow a good game? I've been reading some pretty decent reviews of it but haven't talked to anyone thats actually played it before.

Temper your expectations and you will have a fine time. It's not a bad game, it's just not a super great one. The story is kind of neat in points but it does little to set it apart from other character action games.

If you start it, make sure you stick with it to the end. The ending is pretty odd.

I think that's Curse of Darkness with the Innocent Devils. Of course I've not played that game in a long time so I might be remembering wrong.

When you say that, Soma Cruz (Aria of Sorrow/ Dawn of Sorrow for the GBA/DS) comes to mind. He claims dominance over enemy souls instead of the traditional subweapons or spells. In other words, he's like a blue mage. Throwing bones instead of axes, etc.

he isn't the one I was talking about though. I have both of the games that feature him.

I figured as much. It's just that you mentioned control of monsters, so....

Oh, actually on the topic of Castlevania, have you tried Harmony of Despair yet? It's not story based, but rather mission based. You don't level up but you upgrade gear, which has a larger effect than usual. This sounds weak for a series like Castlevania but the big draw is that it has 6 player co-op online. It's like 15 bucks on the PSN.

The non-DLC Playabale Characters:

- Soma Cruz
- Alucard
- Julius Belmont
- Shanoa
- Jonathan Morris
- Charlotte Aulin
- Yoko Belnades

Just throwing that out there.

I saw it on the store and contemplated buying it. I ended up getting breath of fire 4 instead, but I may go back and get this one too.

Is it just as playable solo or does it focus on co-op more?

It's playable solo, but a lot harder. Luckily, some chests which would have Water of Life online have normal treasure when solo, so it can be an easy way to build up some extra gear early on. Ultimately the trick will be to be as powerful as you can, which with some characters is tied only to subweapon mastery, so if you're not finding good weapons, that's always an option.

Soma: Actually gets replacement weapons. Souls gain in power with number obtained.

Alucard: Actually gets new weapons. Spells grow in power with number of scrolls found.

Julius: Vampire Killer Whip (Omnidirectional.) Whip grows in power alongside subweapons with mastery.

Jonathan: Vampire Killer Whip (Traditional.) Whip grows in power alongside subweapons with mastery. Has more subweapon variety.

Shanoa: Can find a few unique weapons, apparently. (I only have her rapiers.) Weapons grow in power alongside spell mastery.

Charlotte: Her Book of Binding grows in range, area, and power as she binds more spells. Binding the same spell more times increases it's power. (Translation: She's like a blue mage from Final Fantasy. Her gimmick they gave her in HoD is that she absorbs enemy magic to learn them)

Yoko: Her Belnades Staff grows in power alongside her spell mastery. She only has 4 spells, so she gets strong very fast. Her Holy Lightning has a decent range and is homing. She's perfect for beginners. (She was the first person I beat the first level with.)


The thing is, there's not that many levels, but the levels they have are pretty big. Bigger than a portrait in PoR by a fair margin. The main "story" (which isn't a story at all, I'm just calling it that due to boss progression) is 6 chapters long, and the game also comes with Chapter 7. I think there's also like 4 more DLC chapters. If you don't die (expect to die a lot at first) you could easily beat the game on normal in like 2 hours solo... assuming you don't die. The real draw is Hard Mode, though, which has far better drops and good incentives to keep you playing (Example: Boots that raise speed but have no defense = perfect for trying a no-damage run.)


It's certainly not what I was expecting, but for 15 bucks, I'm satisfied.
