3.0 out of 5 stars An objective review of a CastleVania's player since 1988, March 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First, you have to know, that Lord Of Shadow's series, are a reboot to CastleVania's story. So don't complain about that they twist the well know CastleVania's timeline and plot, this game just do that, think on it like non-canon (and I hope it stay that way). Now with that in mind, consider this CastleVania like one of those old linear CastleVania, but with a little touch of exploration, this castle certainly isn't a "Creature of Chaos", is a small Castle compared to the Portrait of Ruins one for example.

The game try to take the touch of CastleVania III, you'll see some similarities, but the characters and abilities are stuck in acts, each one have its episodes, so there is not character shifting, and must be on that way because of the trama. You can't neither kill a boss that you already killed, including the last one, the door are closed, you will need to start a new game for that.

The game is short, in 13:59 hours I beat it 100%. And after that, there is nothing insteresting to see, there is an extra cut scene, very short, and that's all. So is very expensive for only 13:59 hours. There is a character, The Toymaker, it is mentioned several times in the game, but you never fight him, you only see him in a cut scene, so what's the point ?

You'll find some flaws in the mechanics of combat and exploration, like it happen to me in various occations, one time a zombie grabbed me by a foot, the zombie was already dead, so I watched simon smashing no one's head. Tha'ts was funny. The button's response are not so intuitive, you'll find yourself holding the R button when isn't neccesary or pressing B to jump when you need to release the R button first to release your whip of a corner, or trying to move after you grabbed some box only for realize that you have to press the R button again to release the box in order to move.

But this game is a good step, bringing us a classic 2D game, with stunning amazing 3D backgrounds. I enjoy every scennario, the gothic arquitecture of the castle is beatiful, I like so much, and the 3D effect enhances it.

The whip techniques are very good, there are a lot of combos and combinations, there are killer moves too, they aren't too necessary to win battles. But forget about the big arsenal of others titles, there is only a few items in this game, like a classic Castlevania. The level up remains, but it has no meaning, I never noticed an improvement by leveling up, until I return to the first places of the castle looking for missed items.

You'll find yourself constantly dieing because of the traps and the not so good game's mechanics, and just after you die, you can start over right away near the same place where you died. That make the game easier and faster to beat, but when you die several times in the same place in less than one minute, it gets boring. Even in boss battles, you can start after certain part of the battle, and the boss HP meter remain with the damage that you already did it, unbelievable.

I hope for another Castlevania with the beatiful backgrounds and ambience of this, but better done it. By the way, I'm an spanish speaker, this game was develop in Spain, and the game isn't in Spanish, unbelievable, Resident Evil Revelations was made in Japan, and is dubbed in several languages.

My last opinion, this is not a game of 40 bucks, the real price must like 20.

3.0 out of 5 stars Badge is too big, so they enlarge the wallet, and is bigger than the standard ID card size, February 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Standard ID and credit card card sizes are 3 ⅜ × 2 ⅛ inches (85.60 × 53.98 mm), but this wallet set is more large than that, so you will not find an ID card of that size. If you put a ID in it, it will be a lot of free space and the ID card will be lose, besides of the ugly looking.

Even in the game you can see that the Badge is smaller, since there are letters below of it that saids SPECIAL TACTICS AND RESCUE SERVICE. Even in the game you can see that it match de proportion of an standard ID card.

So this will be a waste of money, despite it says capcom here and there and the good quality, but who cares about that.

If you try to print your own ID, you'll realize that it will not be a solution either, because the proportions need to fit the space will be so large that the ID card will look weird. So you'll need to use your skill to match the proportions, after several hours of work I made it.

So how big is it? 130mm corner to corner (110 x 70 mm) !!! a big flaw.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works, no headhache, no high blood pressure, just erection and high libido, January 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really don't understand the bad reviews give it to this product. First that all, I'm not a fake reviewer, you can check my profile and reviews. I suffer from extremely low testosterone, for two reason, one is low LH and FSH levels, idiophatic, and the second one is varicocele, wich I'll fix sooner with my very helpful female doctor. I tried with viagra, I for some unknow reason, my doctor said I'm probably alergic to it, with half pill of the smaller miligrams, end up at emergency room with 170/100 of blood pressure, even when the viagra suppose to low the blood pressure. I had bought three box of this product, and it works without failures. It raise my libido and I got hard rock solid erections too. I just recommend to people, that open the capsule and put the product under your tongue, since the liver can block the herbs extracts. Try it, it works every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive, but it works for me, just with the first 3 pills, January 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have low testosterone levels, (230 bound and 0.22 free), I didn't go for therapy of inyected T, due to the high health threat that carries. So I have been using herbs and stuff, this stuff works just fine, mood, stamina and erections are improved a lot. I tried with three pill first, after like 6 hours I began to feel better. I suppose it contains testosterone or aminoacids or precursors (of the antler), for me that's not a problem, but maybe a healthy guy must not abuse of it, it will shrink his testes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good glasses, cheap emmiter, expensive kit, perfect 3D experience, January 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First that all, this glasses will only work on 120Hz monitors/projectors. They work shutting down every eye 60 times per second, so 120 frames are need it (you have two eyes don't you?).

What comes with the packed?
1) one 3D glasses
2) one usb infrared emmiter
3) one 3D glasses protector
4) the manual
5) the warranty

Requirements:
1) nVidia 3D vision video card
2) 120Hz monitor/proyector
3) Updated drivers

Good points?
The glasses are well made and good quality. When you fill all the requirements, you won't see ghosting or something like that, JUST A PERFECT 3D PICTURE. There is a wheel on the emmiter that allows you to change the 3D depth in real time. Glasses are rechargeable through USB, but I wonder how you will fix it when battery dies.. I hope there is one wrist watch battery inside.

Bad points?
The infrared emmiter is cheap. You feel the bad quality. The button of changing to 3D mode will probably break appart so be gentile. Don't use it on frontal or low power usb connector/hub or it will never work, it looks like it require some miliampers to work. If you read -what comes with the packed-, you will notice that there is no drivers disk. You will need to download the lasted drivers for your nvidia card, and that means at least 200 MB, if you don't have an internet connection to download the drivers it will not work. There is a lot of infrared leds inside the emmiter, the glasses have to "see" the infrared light to get sincronized so it must be infront of you of if you're lucky light can bounce from a wall or something. Money, this kit is expensive, they at least need to put an effort on the emmiter quality. Back reflection: avoid light behind you, or the lens will reflected to your eyes.

Health issues?
You can feel dizziness and nausea if you move too much the camera on 3D games, so avoid that, that happens to me in batman arkham asylum tunnels. With 3D videos you probably won't feel dizzness and nauseas.

3D vision vs 3D vision 2?
Some flaws are corrected in this version, like the edge of the lens problem. So if you had not bought the first ones, go for this one, price is basically the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's 2011 and I'm still enjoying it, it works in windows 7 64 + nvidia, October 22, 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
UPDATE: It works with nVidia 3D Vision, need for speed underground 2 is 3D fully capable !

You really feel the coolness of drive by night. This is my favorite racing game ever.

Some people will find that the game crashed in windows 7. But that's is easy to fix:

To fix this issue, just select "application controlled" in your graphic card setting, at properties of the program "speed2.exe or its shorcut", go to compatibilty tab, choose -Windows XP SP2- and -Run as administrator-. All the features will be available, even the anisotropic filtering of the textures (pavement looks ugly without it). You don't have to go back to windows xp, neither install some virtual machine to run it. Microsoft said that the game doesn't work on Windows 7, but that's not true since I'm playing it at all its glory. I forget.. Probably you'll need to kill the process speed2.exe the first time, and then open the program.

I hope this would help someone.

5.0 out of 5 stars USE YCbCr44 to avoid excessive backlight leaking, August 26, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Now yes! Better better contrast:
If you use RGB format, black will be just dark gray. So use YCbCr444 mode. If you have a nvidia card, go to nvidia control panel - adjust desktop color settings - digital color format and choose YCbCr44. Then under the monitor's control menu go to manual image adjust - display mode and choose YUV mode.

key words hopping that some people can find this review: (Viewsonic VX2453MH-LED 24-Inch, washed out, image, better, contrast, black, backlight, leaking, bad, annoying)
