5.0 out of 5 stars A triumphant return November 5, 2003
Format:Video Game
Let's get a few things clear and out of the way:
- Symphony of the Night is one of my all-time favorite games, and since I've been playing videogames since the old Atari systems, that's saying alot.
-The jump to 3D play, and I mean GOOD 3D play, was just inevitable, so get used to it. All games are going this way. It's much easier to take advantage of the hardware in a 3D environment.
Now that that's said and done, let's get to the point. Lament of Innocence is, in my opinion, a well made and very fun game. It helps that the design team from Symphony worked on this game. The controls are easy to learn: 2 buttons to attack, 1 to jump, 1 for special weapons, and 1 to block. As long as you can get those buttons down, you can play for quite a while and not have to worry about the others. The new combo system is great, giving you the ability to chain together an entire series of very devastating attacks. If you can master the combo system, the sub weapons can be moved to a USE-ONLY-IF-NEEDED status. The addition of using the whip as a meathod of swinging off poles and rails was a nice touch. Also, the game requires ALOT of exploring and doubling-back to retreive items you couldn't get before. Also, if you think the voice-overs stink, then you can play the game in Japanese with English subtitles.
There are a few caveats, however. The only way to gain magic points is to block a special enemy attack. This can get extremely frustrating, especially if you're surrounded by enemies that are hacking at you, but not performing special attacks. Also, certain areas of the game become inaccessible after the boss is defeated, and you can go back to pick up something you may have missed, some of which can be very hard to find. Also, the real-time window is just plain bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Whip for All Seasons December 19, 2003
Format:Video Game
In a sense this game is old hat. The beautiful fiancée of Leon Belmont, a knight crusader, is captured by Walter Bernhard, a master vampire. Leon deserts the crusades and flies off to the castle of the aforementioned vampire. There, after being handed a mystical whip, he penetrates layer after layer of horrible badness until he faces, and hopefully destroys, his true enemy. Which is about all the plot a good third person hack-and-slash really needs.
However, to create such a game with sufficient workmanship to make it compelling visually and challenging mentally and physically is no small feat. And that is what sets Lament of Innocence apart from many of its competitors. For one thing, developers are always tempted to substitute extreme difficulty for interesting challenges. Lament, on the other hand, is just doable enough to keep the player from throwing the controller at the monitor in disgust. And its puzzles can be resolved by keeping in mind that anything can be a tool.
Castlevania isn't perfect. I found that motion control and camera angle are both a little too loose. To some degree this is intentional, but I prefer controls that send objects where they are suppose to go. Especially when you are leaping from stone to stone in a frantic effort to scale a wall and there is one, and only one, spot from which to leap.
One of the problems in rating a game like Lament of Innocence is that it is very good, but falls slightly short of some other, very similar games. In this case I'm thinking of Devil May Cry. This is a case where 5 stars are too many, but 4 are too few. I would recommend both as great examples of their genre that can be played repeatedly.

5.0 out of 5 stars I picked up castlevania today and it is awesome!!! October 22, 2003
Format:Video Game
There has been alot said about Castlevania Lament of Innocence and they vary greatly. I played this game for the first time and as picky a gamer as I am let me assure you that it will be worth every penny. If you are an action gamer and like games that combine action with depth you will love this game. If you like lord of the rings or Devil may cry or Baldur's Gate or Zelda or Rygar you will love this because it takes the best from all of them. If you are a castlevania fan then you will not be disapointed either because while the game can be compared to those other games it is like them in a castlevania style way. Whether you prefer 2D games or 3D games you will love this game. Some sites gave only modest reviews to this game such as Gamespot (7.7)while others gave it good reviews like IGN (9.0). I agree with IGN much more. Gamespot complains that the game is a bit too simple. This game is not simple what so ever. There are all kinds of combo's that you can perform and the fighting and gameplay are unrivaled by anything on the ps2. There are so many different ways to defeat and fight the monsters that it blows my mind. It takes about 45 minutes before you start to realize how much you can do but if you experiment and are creative you can come up with countless ways to take out the enemy. Right out of the gate you get a block that can increase your magic points, several whip combinations, a strong and weak attack (that can be timed to do different things and combined to do different things), a double jump, a dodge, a fire fist, and a jumping lunge fist. That alone makes the way to defeat your enemies fun and varied. You also have 5 other weapons you can pick up right off too that require hearts to use. Read more ›
