Castlevania Lords of Shadows or Enslaved: Odyssey to the West?

9 replies 7 views Edited Sep 8, 2010

Both games come out on October 5th but which one do you recommend?

I'm more into Castlevania Lords of Shadow since it looks awesome and

has a great chance to be the best 3D Castlevania game ever since its

past offerings have been a little lackluster. On the other hand Enslaved

was under my radar until i saw the recently revealed 15 min video, after

that i want to get it too...so epic! What do u say?

Castlevainia Lords of Shadow will be awesome without a doubt. Enslaved looks ok but for some reason it really does not interest me.

Depends. Castlevania is more fantasy. Enslaved is more tactical. It really depends on your taste.

For me, Enslaved all the way.  The new Castlevania seems to be kind of GoW-ish, like Darksiders and Dante's Inferno.  Now that's not necessarily a bad thing, but Enslaved seems more more unique...

Castlevania seems darker themed more to fit my personal taste, but both games look great.

Both look great to me.  I will probably get both games at some point but the first one I'll buy will probably be Castlevania.  It's just got a look of polish to it.

I'm confused when ppl say Castlevania looks G of W ish, Castlevania is the TEMPLATE which spwaned God of War so how is it a copy?? It's just more detailed gameplay wise which was impossible to do back on 8-bit.

I never said that Castlevania copied God of War.  I said that they looked similar.    Which came first is irrelevant.

People say this only because of the action in the game. When he swings his whips it look just like the weapons Kratos uses. True that Castlevania came first but the fighting style of God of War came around before Castlevania adopted it.

Everyone knows that these are too totally different games but the style in the games are similar.
