Alucard..Hmm, I wish there was a 'Symphony of the Night 3D-HD' after having played inferior LoSD 2....

Thats the word that ruined it all, Alucard is in this continuity a full vampire, he was a belmont to boot, thats not good or right or even innovating, it's called being cheap, i could rant and rant why i dont like it, but a lot of Alucards character depth came from the morals instilled by his human mother, Alucard is a half vampire, a Damphyr who has less weakness than your run of the mill hollywood vampire, his source of conflict is to be moraly opposed to his father Count Dracula/Mathias Cronqvist.

He crafted the Alucard spear that suplements the power of the Vampire killer, he became Genya Arikado in order to see if his father's reincarnation was going to be as evil as before, or rather as insane.

Finally with this and the departure of IGA the future of Castlevania looks quite bleak, taking known elements and twisting them beyond recognition is almost like reading a bad fanfic.

For Example the castle wanting to eat/kill Dracula so he does not leaves? absolute troll Logic, the castle is an incarnation of chaos but it's tamed under Dracula's power, so the castle is not smart, it merley resonates with the desires of the Count at the time.

Here it's transformed onto a Genius Lochi, which is a bad move methinks.

This is the last game made by these particular developers, so I wouldn't worry too much about the future of the game

If it sells well then no,it will not be the last, Konami will renew the contract and more of this kind of games will came out.

I mean i have played the older castlevanias and they were fine (I to IV, SOTN and the GBA ones) i have some points i disagree with IGA (legends not being part of canon) but the old Metroid vania formula was perfectly fine, why ruin a selling strategy? this GoWania does not really appeals to me at all.

I don't get why people keep comparing it to GoW that much, aside from the fact that it has a whip type weapon. I think the gameplay is pretty good. It's the story I have an issue with. Many people like myself were hugely disappointed with it. I definitely won't be buying a follow up game since one of the biggest selling points for this game was the cliff hanger ending of LoS1. They f'd up big time with this game and I'm even thinking of making a thread about how bad it was.

because similar gameplay mechanics regarding QTE's, much of the combat eninge makes me remember God of War, there is alsoa guy with rage against the heavens who gets betrayed and so goes onto a roaring rampage of revenger.
