[TGS 2010] Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Hands-on
Yesterday was the official Kick Off of Tokyo Game Show 2010. And like last year, we found some nice games, in particular on Konami’s booth.
Let’s start with the all-new Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. I think most of you heard about this nice game produced by Mercury Steam (in collaboration with Hideo Kojima’s team) when it was introduced for the first time during E3. This Devil may Cry lookalike (or God of War like) had already impressed, and yesterday, after having a good time with this baby we can confirm this new opus will be a real killer.
As a reminder, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is an action adventure game where you will have to play Gabriel Belmont who is ready to do anything to revive his already dead beloved. Taking place in Southern Europe during the Middle Ages, the game starts under the rain, while many villagers flee from danger. Actually, these people are trying to flee from werewolves invading the town. You will understood that you will have to clean this area thanks to a crucifix hiding a whip.
In short, this is an ideal introduction to immediately put you right into the mood of the game. The game play is simply nice, with fluid animation. You will be able to attack in different ways thanks to a combination of two buttons. And after defeating an enemy, the user will gain experience points in order to purchase new combos. Graphically speaking, the game is beautiful with a lot of blood.
Alongside of this main attack, the user will have the possibility to use secondary attack, and even special attack… A lot of people say, “A bit like God of War”…
After this fight, you will have immediately to ride a horse, while wolves are trying to catch you… And here again you will have to fight against the werewolves…
Anyway, to conclude, the game is really impressive. We loved the gothic atmosphere, the gameplay, the graphic. And the cinematic are just perfect, it will completely immerse you in the game. A must have for all people who like Beat’em all games.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will be available on October 7th on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3
