Apparently the demo is only PSN+ in USA but its free for all on the EU PSN, anyway first impressions. Also download it now if your a castlevania fan you will not be disappoint.

Fucking hell this game is amazin it shits on all the hack and slashers i've tried this gen. Its castlevania in 3d and it actually works really well, i'm amazed.

The graphics are amazing the combat feels like your doing damage, you feel invincible, its responsive silky smooth. I'm getting this.

PS3 version is the superior version about freaking time we got a decent multiplat.

I was looking forward to this game, but after trying the demo, I'm disappointed.
I don't doubt that it'll be an amazing game and I'll still be buying because I'm a fan of the series, the combat system though feels more like GoW than Castlevania.

Yeah i did get that feeling a bit, but i'm hoping the RPG elements and the special weapons will come more into it in the full game. This doesn't play like SoTN in 3d, but the fact it has decent combat in 3d is good enough for me. Even from what little i played i already prefer this to GoW which didn't get me excited at all. The horse riding sections were pretty cool to. The colossal bosses look amazing. I'm just debating if i'm preordering this or waiting. I would love to have unlockable characters or something so i have a reason for multiple playthroughs or decent challenges.

The game lacking hat is the only disappointment I can imagine. I also think this looks unbelivably sexy apparently there's a lot of graphical glitches on the 360 version which is why some reviews have been poor as thats what people are reviewing this on for some reason.

Might give it a go. No real interest in the game or the franchise, but what the hell.

So I got it today and I must say this is a really great game. Excellent graphics, beautiful and varied environments, nice plot and the actual gameplay is flawless. The combat system is solid and offers many options: there is a plethora of combos for the main weapon which gets upgraded, different magic powers and sub-weapons. Platforming, exploration, solving puzzles and collecting items are also important. Oh and the length is very decent too (~20 hours on average) and you'll have to replay the levels again to complete trials and find items you couldn't reach before.

As for the plot, just watch this:

It's got some stellar reviews, but the demo didn't impress me much, which is a shame because I love the old school Castlevania games.

Keep in mind gabriel is in a very weak state in that demo.

All round i thought its style presentation and gameplay were better then Bayonetta/DMC4/GoW3/Dante's Inferno, the fact its castlevania just sweetens the deal.

Also i have faith in hideo kojima.

I found the demo disappointing too, but the game is awesome. IMO, it's the best action-adventure game of this generation so far.

Yeah i'm expecting this to be the GoW or DMC of this gen. Seeing as those didn't manage to impress me as much this gen.

Well it won't be because the fans hate it and they're the only ones playing Castlevania anymore.

I'm sure a lot of people would have bought this for its name i.e. the fans who don't like it most likely already bought it. General consensus this game is great. I think it will sell. The fact Kojima's name is attached to it means people will be more likely to check it out even if they haven't played CV before.

Anyway i'm not saying this will outsell those other games this will just end up being looked back on more as a classic. I reckon DMC5 would've toppled this but ninja theory have gone and fucked all over that, although i dunno what the deal is gonna be with the next DMC after that one, i weren't sure what this reboot meant.

Most likely DMC will either tank or sell well and then get reviews and comments about how awful it is.

Then Capcom will fire Ninja Theory, tell them they can go fuck off back to their crappy story heavy action games and maybe get Kamiya back on the games.

I really don't get why developers don't listen to there fanbase.

I think CV is a good reboot. As much as i love 2D CV i know it just wouldn't work all that well for the 3D version.

This whole DMC thing is taking a character that is likeable even when he acts like a cock and turn him into an emo twat that no one except people who probably never played DMC would like.

I honestly don't give two shits about listening to a fanbase... it's fuckwads like Antoinades however who give me the urge to punch a fucking baby. His whole revision putting Dante in the image of himself and adding that smoking under the moonlight bullshit? Fuck him, it gets worse the more I read the interviews with him and realize he's another one of these artistic fuckwads who are so cocky they smell their own damn farts.

Welll this guy is an exceptional case i don't think i've seen anyone arrogant enough to turn an iconic character into themself adn think they can make them cooler. He seems to be ignoring criticism to and carrying it on though.

I dunno the whole thing reeks of pretention to me.

^You won't regret it. This game is getting better and better.

The plot, the levels, the enemies, the bosses, the puzzles, the upgrades, the trials and the puzzles... everything about this game seems perfect.

This is not a typical Castlevania game; this game is much more. Although a fan of the series would be familiar with some names, the biggest part of the game isn't spent inside of a castle full of vampires (I don't think Dracula is in this game too) and vampires are just one of the many species of enemies. You'll be encountering every kind of evil and mythical creatures.
