    We played both versions extensively and noticed no discernable differences between 360 and PS3.

    Thank goodness this game seem's really good. Look's like I'll be getting Enslaved for Christmas.

    "Eventually you get to ride these spiders," Freakin' Awesome! Riding Giant Spiders!!! I wonder how fast they go.

    worn out game series + Hideo Kojima= EPIC WIN! I wish the rest of the world learned how to craft games as finely and carefully as the Japanese.

    Oh wow... Castlevania or Enslaved.... well I've been waiting on this game for well over a year now. I can wait to get Enslaved.

    the demo was good but i was worried it would just be a god of war clone, god dammit there are so many games i want but haven't got enough money for plus the fact i still have a heap of games from my plus subscription i haven't finished yet
  • BlackElement17 - September 28, 2010 1:31 p.m.

    I plan to play this.

    Nice article, now im really planning on getting this game. Cant wait until the "OMG CASTLEVANIA BETTER THAN HALO REACH" people show up.
  • ShaneCedt - September 28, 2010 12:53 p.m. it's not just another GoW ripoff. That's good.
  • Jaces - September 28, 2010 12:36 p.m.

    Canceled my Enslaved preorder for this after reading the review. I haven't played a Castlevania game since it's first appearance on Nintendo. Can't wait to get my hands on this game!
  • Redeater - September 28, 2010 12:31 p.m.

    I'm excited now
  • db1331 - September 28, 2010 12:09 p.m.

    OH SO I GUESS SINCE THIS GOT A 9 IT IS BETTER THAN HALO REACH!?!?? On a more serious note, this game and Enslaved are going to make me buy a PS3 next month.
  • AlmightyFuzz - September 28, 2010 11:32 a.m.

    Oh goddammit! Both LoS and Enslaved come out on the 8th of Oct, and I can't afford either!! And I really want both! *sniff*
  • speno93 - September 28, 2010 11:23 a.m.

    i've said it before and i'll say it again, anything Kojima touches instantly becomes gold. great review! can't wait to get it.
  • OnyxOblivion - September 28, 2010 11:11 a.m.

    *waits for public release of demo* It's going to be hard to top Harmony of Despair, in my mind, at least.
  • ThePigHostage - September 28, 2010 10:48 a.m.

    Damn, looks like another $60 I won't be saving!
  • ThatGuyFromTV - September 28, 2010 10:33 a.m.

    I'll have to see whether it is better than Bayonetta, because in all seriousness, it does sound like it would be a matter of opinion. Honestly, I like games that don't take themselves seriously. One example: I was a big BFBC2 player, but one day I tried the first BFBC, and I had shit-tons of fun.
  • Conman93 - September 28, 2010 9:54 a.m.

    I'll probably get this or Enslaved, now that LBP2 isn't coming out this year :(
  • Octoboy - September 28, 2010 9:52 a.m.

    I'll second boondocks iquiry. Any details on differences between the two versions?
  • boondocks50 - September 28, 2010 8:58 a.m.
