Castlevania: Judgment Game Review–An Enormous Disappointment

 

When I first saw a copy of Castlevania: Judgment on the shelves, I had a brief interlude of wistful memories of my boyhood, playing eight-bit Simon Belmont, taking on legions of ghouls and other assorted monsters in a flurry of whip-cracking,...

Castlevania Judgment

 

It's not as bad as you think!

It's a full-fledged Wii fighting game ; From a technical standpoint, it looks great ; Soundtrack classy and diverse ; Once you figure it out, the fighting system works quite well ; Connect Ecclesia to Judgment to unlock bonuses in both

Pretty much unplayable without a Classic Controller ; Frustrating camera with no opponent lock-on ; Character design is atrocious, hilarious, and not Castlevania in the slightest ; Apparently nobody plays online ; Some Castle mode challenges are...

Making another MGS game. Has two of the most self-centered game development douches ever (IGA and Kojima). Goemon development team left and is now Good Feel. They must've had some hand in Bomberman: Act Zero... (???) Yes, they have really good...

Castlevania Judgment Game Review - Nintendo Wii

 

Judgment is pretty much a knockoff of basically every great fighter to make its inception into the 3D battlefield, not unlike the game Power Stone. Except in Judgment, the camera is either unresponsive or just plain bad. With complicated learning...

You're the most diehard Castlevania fan who fears nothing... especially the recession and crappy games

Girls in 3D fighters always jiggle--this obviously is no exception

The ineptness of the controls brings us to the characters, and there are plenty to play with in this game. But unlike established fighters in the genre like Tekken or Street Fighter (and in this case, even Smash Bros. Brawl) is the lack of balance...

Castlevania Judgment Review

 

You could say that a respected game franchise is coming of age when it finally gets it own fighting game, particularly if prior titles in the series weren't rooted in the competitive genre. After all, even Nintendo took the time to run away with the...

Thankfully, Konami took the time to implement online multiplayer for Judgment, so players short on local competition can attempt to test their skills against opponents outside their spheres of influence in ranked and non-ranked matches. Skill levels...

Review: Castlevania Judgment (Wii)

 

Castlevania Judgment is the first game in the long-running Castlevania franchise for Nintendo Wii. Rather than being an action adventure game like the other games in the series, Judgment is something different. It's a 3D fighter with weapons, something...

Castlevania Judgment Review

 

Castlevania: Judgment for the Nintendo Wii is a fighting game that doesn't pull any punches but isn't able to land them well either.

We don't mind a Castlevania fighting game when it's done right but Judgment just isn't able to pull it off well thanks to a number of problems that make this a unimpressive fighting game. All is not bad, though, seeing as the collection of characters...

Castlevania Judgment

 

There's no shortage of talented warriors in the Castlevania universe, but their latest playground is a bit of a mess.

Online brawling; tons of unlockables; occasionally pretty

Rotten character balance; irritating camera; lame story

Meanwhile, the vitally important rhythm of battle is torn to shreds at the hands of hyper-attacks that are too easily unleashed. These snazzy and imaginative displays of special effects and style are a surprising treat the first couple of times you see...

TGS 2008: Castlevania Judgment

 

Konami's new fighting game Castlevania Judgment certainly attracts attention. The cel-shaded title for the Nintendo Wii has huge characters that seem to fill the screen and make loud fighting-type noises. It's a rather bizarre title, and is very much a...

Castlevania Judgment - Review

 

Ever since Castlevania took the leap to a 3-D look back in the days of the Nintendo 64 the series has seen its share of ups and downs. The 3-D games sometimes don't carry the same Castlevania feel that the 2-D Castlevanias showcase but they have...

Instead of treading in familiar action territory, Castlevania Judgement introduces us to a fighting genre with Castlevania characters but the overall Castlevania feel and quality that the series usually displays suffers quite a bit with this change.

Castlevania Judgment (Wii) review

 

Flailing beat -'em-up whipped into shape at last minute...

All in, these franchise hallmarks amount to a game that feels like a bona fide member of the Castlevania family and actually plays like one, too. Combined with the multi-directional control and dynamic combat, the game feels more like the boss-rush...
