@Hunkulese said:Who cares? SOTN is what he wants from a castlevania game and LOS is nothing like that. Why does it bother you so much?
This. Yea, obviously there are more Castlevania games than SOTN and its followups but many people find those games to be the best. LOS isn't those games, so it isn't what many fans want. It's not like LOS is anything like the NES/SNES games either. That said, it is easily the best 3D Castlevania game. That isn't a big compliment, but let's face it, what Konami was doing before wasn't working.
Bullshit. Super Castlevania IV is the best Castlevania game.
Eight-way directional whipping. Think about that. Your whip attacks in eight directions.
A lot of people who say LoS is garbage never got past the opening chapters, which is too bad honestly. As bullshit as it is, once you get on to Chapter 5 (where Vampires are first introduced) things start picking up as you start killing vampires by staking a fucking cross through their heart. Then you get to
Dracula's Vampire Castle and it really feels like a Castlevania game with the Doctor Frankenstein steampunk business and what not. That whole castle is one giant love letter to Castlevania's old school European gothic design, and it shows in the loving detail of every room. Then you get past the castle, and from there on out it's the best Castlevania game I've played since Super IV which, as I just explained, is the best Castlevania of all time. That's indisputable.
