which one is it? Is it the 3D one that looks like GoW or the 2D one where you can view the whole map at once.
The 2D one looked like an indie game (aka not good), we talked about it in the "not worth a new thread" thread
It's the 2D one. It's...not so good. Might be fun with a full group, but I wanted a new singleplayer Castlevania, and it did not deliver on any level.
Also it didn't help that I was playing it on a twenty-something-inch CRT screen, and even on the closest zoom level, it was still hard to see stuff. Gave it another go after I got a big HD TV and it was at least playable, but still not very much fun. It's just not balanced for one player at all.
For what it's worth, the 3D one (Lords of Shadow) was a decent GoW/DMC close. Fantastic art direction and lots of variety in the environments, but poor framerate. Had a couple of cool SotC-like boss battles, too.
