Think I'll just stick to replaying Order of Ecclesia.
Jonathon Morris is the second character you can play in portrait of ruin...
Looks pretty interesting, I hope it finds its way to the PSN eventually..
The more I look at it, the more this game looks absolutely terrible. The sprites and environments are quite obviously ripped from the DS/PS1 games, they took out exploration, adding powers, leveling up, and basically everything that makes Castlevania a good game, and on top of that it just looks shoddily put together.
It just seems like an XBLA cash-in with Japanese developers again entirely misreading the American audience and just saying "hey, they like co-op? let's slap some co-op in Castlevania."
The summer of arcade is so far turning out very disappointing. I thought I'd be getting at least 3 or maybe all 5, now I'm unsure I'll get more than Limbo - which itself was a little bit of a let down.
Could be interesting.
Multiplayer coop Castlevania... interesting.
"This guy's a dick."
A truer statement has never been said.
Looks meh. Scratch that. This looks horrible.
The soundtrack rips!
hmm... not really what i was expecting, but looks alright.
NO EXP???? Whaaaaaat!?!?!
JAPAN!!! STOP! JUST STOP!
You suck at multiplayer. Focus on single player.
I've never played a Castlevania game, but this looks awesome. Like those old platformer levels I used to design on paper for four players, before four players was even a thing.
This quick look is bumming me out. I was so excited for this game, but it seems like they have no exploration, very few enemy types, small amount of loot and really short chapters.
Seriously, seeing axe knights and hoop rings show up on chapter 1 and then again on chapter 3 is disheartening.
I want a big castle that I can map out and explorer with a friend. Not a dungeon crawler with repetitive loot and enemies.
I was thinking it would be like Portrait of Ruin single player but, with coop. Maybe I was expecting too much..
" JAPAN!!! STOP! JUST STOP! You suck at multiplayer. Focus on single player. "ditto.
Too bad, I wasn't expecting the single player to be so lacking.
I feel like so much of the stupid crap in this game could be fixed if the loot didn't repeat as much.
I really have no idea what to think about this game. Single player is a bit unsatisfactory but multi could be interesting. Hrmmm...
I want some Castlevania: Hot Dog. I'll play as Soma if it ever comes to PSN.
This should be a Thursday Night Throwdown game. >_>
" It just seems like an XBLA cash-in with Japanese developers again entirely misreading the American audience and just saying "hey, they like co-op? let's slap some co-op in Castlevania." "So true.
Only six chapters? Seems short. I thought this was going to be a new single-player Castlevania game.
Pretty much confirmed what I figured this game would be all about when the first screenshots hit. Still gonna get it. Believe it or not, there was a time when Castlevania wasn't about exploring a giant castle and leveling up. It was about walking to the right, whipping dudes, and collecting pork chops out of walls.
soundtrack sounds rad.
Well, I think that QL was enough to get me to pass up this game. Shame, this title had great potential.
Look like I'm buying a DS and going through the last few actual castlevanias.
No leveling and no story? Not getting this anymore.
I said it before and I'll surely say it again: Castlevania HD is the worst name for this game ever. Especially since it's the second game in the series to use H and D as the main letters.
edit: Holy shit this is the best Castlevania music ever! And I even ordered the SOTN OST from Japan back in 1998 because it was so dope. Did Michiru Yamane do this soundtrack as well? Couldn't be.
Meh. I guess I'll just buy Order of Ecclesia or something for my Castlevania needs.
So, they make a game gathering several characters from across the series and don't include Simon "The Best and Most Important Castlevania Character" Belmont? Fuck this game. I agree with the dude who recommended people just buy some of the older Castlevania games for DS.
" Man, this went from "I'm interested" to "meh, I'll save my 1200 points for something else. " Oh well. "Same. Now time to pin my hopes on the Lara Croft game. C'mon, fourth games a charm
Walking seems, slow. Not feeling this game as much seeing it in action.
I loooove Castlevania! >_<
edit: although like alot of people, I am a lil bummed about no real story mode. Yes I'm well aware it's specifically an online game. Still, it's missing somethin. :o
"I was so excited for this game, but it seems like they have no exploration, very few enemy types, small amount of loot and really short chapters."I have some games that might interest you.
this looks kind of bad. we didn't see the main draw of the game though, the co-op. maybe that will make it better.
This is fine, but I'm really ready for a new new castlevania, I'm talkin' Castlevania: The Shadow Complex.
I'm loving this music.
I like what I saw...
I guess a lot of people are going to be disappointed because it's not an action RPG anymore.
But, hey! It's still has loot and a nice selection of characters from the series.
Jeff and Ryan don't seem to thrilled about it.
If reviewed I predict 3 stars.
I'm still going to buy it.
So what do you do when there's a banana on the screen?
This didn't need to exist.
looks OK but nothing special
A bunch of things about this game bother me like six player slots but only five characters. Or the slapdash single player mode.
But that zoom feature is totally awesome. I wonder if there's an achievement to beat a castle without zooming in at all.
Jeez i was really excited for this, but this completely killed my interest. Im just going to buy a DS castlevania.
fyi. shanoa has a rapier.
It looks like more of Symphony of the Night and if that's your thing, then cool. But for me, I enjoyed J and R's commentary more than the game video in this quicklook

"you predict 3 stars with ryan saying "castlevania Hellish poop" and jeff saying "yeah...its not far off"?
Maybe another QL when it's out so we can see multi-player?
I'll download the demo, we shall see about buying it.
