Castlevania: Lament of Innocence review

Reviewed October 25, 2003

Jason Venter says: "Try not to stare as you walk through a chapel and see some benches upright, some tossed to their sides, and still others draped by cobwebs. Everything looks so tremendously organic. There's also a lot of color variation. Even though textures are reused throughout, they're all so good that it doesn't really impact anything in a negative way. Even better, there's good variety from one locale to the next."

Marc Golding says: "There are hidden bosses galore, including The Forgotten One, a boss that has to be seen to be believed.

Rob Hamilton says: "Mr. Exposition gives you the details of the plot, which basically comes down to Walter being a bit bored with eternal life, so for amusement, he kidnaps the loved ones of potential worthy opponents in order to engage in combat with the vengeful fighters.

No, he's kept around to serve as a general store, so desperate to avenge his loss that he'll charge an arm and a leg for life-restoring potions and armor. A true humanitarian, this guy."

ratking says: "As the only vidoegamer ever to openly state Castlevania 64 as one of the greatest videogames of all time, I was extremely excited to see this videogame series return to a 3D format. I mean, I love the collection of Castlevania games being released on the Gameboy Advance, but in my dreams I imagined Castlevania returning to the next generation systems, once again in that despised 3D formats. I purchased Castlevania: Lament of Innocence (hereby known as C:LOI) as soon as it released, and quickly e..."

True says: "Legacies are hard to come by in the gaming world. Few franchises can claim that they have stood the test of time by lasting over a decade or have kept up with the constantly changing hardware by producing profitable sequels on more then one next-generation system. CastlevaniaŚmuch like its Nintendo counter parts Metroid and ZeldaŚis one series that can boast such things. Eighteen years later and its mark left on more then four systems, Castlevania is still a legend in its own right. However, the..."
