View Full Version : Metareview -- Castlevania Judgment (Wii)

November 24th, 2008, 21:51

Nobody seems to have been whipped into a frenzy by Konami's recent stab at a Castlevania fighting game. A small group of reviewers has finally passed judgment on the Wii-only release, and, by-and-large, the consensus is a resounding groan and it's not coming from Frankenstein's monster.

IGN (75/100): "In the list of games I'm dying to play in the Castlevania series, a 3D fighter was about as far from the top as possible, but Judgment was a pleasant surprise."
G4 X-Play (20/100): "The soundtrack is the only thing in Castlevania Judgment that does proper homage to the series."
1UP (D-): "As a fighter, Castlevania Judgment employs too many design ideas that are neither well planned nor well executed. It's a strange misstep for the beloved series, one that Konami hopefully learns from."
