thanks professor. i hate when i need to look at a FAQ or ask for help but honestly i would have never figured that out, since i'm not really a codex reader in any game ... except maybe mass effect ... ffxiii.

MercurySteam's previous game, Jericho, wouldn't indicate that a project like Lords of Shadow was forthcoming. It should be emphasized that I liked Jericho, even if I couldn't recommend it, for all the reasons I laid out back in 2007 - at least a million years ago, as the Internet reckons time. Novel mechanics and rock-solid worldbuilding were in evidence though; if the studio survived, I wondered what we might see next.

This is what: a game that reaches up from the crust of the accursed earth and tries to seize the moon. Every part of the game isn't perfect - its occasionally recalcitrant camera and (at least, to my mind) somewhat choppy melee experience are, on the whole, mitigated and even ennobled somehow by the coherence of its vision. They become something like the goofy habits of a friend, made diffuse in their aggregated being.

My mouth has hung open and I've pointed at the screen, looking over to Gabe to verify that he is seeing the same thing, and that the wonders and terrors taking place on the screen are genuine and not the result of some ancient cache of psychotropic drugs leaching out of my spinal fluid. An an artistic statement, every corner of this world has something new to tell you. The mythology is actually interesting, not "videogame" interesting. There are also, inexplicably, several moments of strong humor in the game - strange slapstick moments that, executed in Lords' unrelenting Gothic atmosphere, melt that mounting darkness into candy. You see these moments alongside the others, pitch-perfect dramatics and cutscenes you would never think of skipping, and the love of this developer for this project is unavoidable.

Late to the party, but I rented this from Gamefly and loved it. Not a big fan of the Castlevania series. The only one I ever beat was Symphony of the Night, and that was years later with its release on Live. But I really enjoyed this one and am definitely looking forward to a sequel.

Just finished this, and thought it was suitably EPIC. Probably a little too long (by about two stages), but excellent nonetheless. Feel sorry for anyone that overlooks this thinking it's "just another 3D Castlevania"; It ain't.

^ Well said. I always thought the 3D Castlevanias get bad raps and for no other reason than being too strictly compared to the 2D Castlevania.

I've heard the official strategy guide for this game is a piece of trash and horribly inaccurate. Is this true? If so, I may just return it to Gamestop this week (bought it with the 50/60% off on guides sale going on right now.)

The first DLC for this game, Reverie, comes out this Wednesday, February 2.

Now if I could just find a deal on this game... I couldn't afford the many sales during the holidays, darn it.

I agree with both of you. This game surprised the hell out of me and was easily one of the top 5 games I played from last year. Everything about it is epic, after I beat it and moved on I still thought about it and missed playing it. The music is very awesome as well.

To those who haven't played it, don't overlook this gem.

I'm at the end of the game and I love it. By far the most underrated game of 2010.

Looking forward to the DLC.

Okay, so I beat the game last night. Holy crap, best ending I've played in a long time! The epilogue is beyond epic. If you are a long time Castlevania fan, it'll blow your mind. It blew mine and I'm not even a huge C-vania fan. Worth every penny it'll cost you and the time you'll put in. Freaking amazing.

I loved the game, but I have such a backlog and at 800 points, I'm hesitant to jump on this. I'd love to hear some impressions from fellow CAG's.

The Resurrection DLC is probably coming this month:

I'm still waiting for the first one to go on sale as I haven't finished the main game yet.

About time. I've been waiting for both DLC to come out so I can play both one after the other.
