    If youve got a PS3 or 360 and are old enough to appreciate the awesome 'Castlevania' titles from way back in the days of the NES and SNES, you need to pick up this game!

    The visuals are amazing (almost on par with God Of War III) and the audio is also superb (Its pretty spooky playing it through 5.1 surround because you can hear voices behind you etc :D ).

    Actually m8, Sony have nothing to do with the Castlevania series. Its Konami's baby and was originally on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) ;)

    LOL, I thought you had made a mistake because I havent seen a demo for this on XBL or PSN :roll: By this, I mean the brand new Castlevania - Lords Of Shadow :)

    Here you go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castlevania (tbh, whoever said they were originally for Sony systems were probably too young to know otherwise lol)

    My personal favourites are -

    Castlevania II - Simon's Quest (NES) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castlevania_II:_Simon's_Quest
    Super Castlevania IV (SNES) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Castlevania_IV
    Castlevania - Symphony Of The Night (PS) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castlevania:_Symphony_of_the_Night

    and now

    Castlevania - Lords Of Shadow (360/PS3)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castlevania:_Lords_of_Shadow

    For anyone thats a fan of the original titles. This statement made by a video games magazine is spot on: "Water Castlevania's roots and a rollicking adventure sprouts forth ... Lords Of Shadow feels like 16-bit design filtered through 20 years of innovation".

    I have to say my favorites go like this.

    Castlevania - Symphony Of The Night
    Castlevania II
    Castlevania: Lament of Innocence

    I really enjoyed Lament of Innocence for the factor they did a great job at killing the hardship that was Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness. I did like Legacy of Darkness, but not a lot of reviewers did.. lol

    1 more day! Woot!

    There isnt a demo available for this.....Im playing the finished product and its f*cking amazing! Its like playing a classic 8/16Bit Castlevania, but with awesome AV :rockout:

    Forget about the crap 3D Castlevania titles, this has redeemed the Belmont family legacy lol.
