Castlevania, a quick look

Picked up Castlevania: Lords of Shadow earlier today and it's already impressed me quite a bit. I haven't really played any Castlevanias since Symphony of the night for the PS1 and that was such a great game that I've bought it both for the PS3 and xbox, I suggest you do the same btw. Right off the bat I can say that it's a lot harder then God of War 3, starting at the highest diffculty level available at the start of the game I've already at chapter 2 had encounters I've had to try 10ish times to complete.

Now I just hope the game has the same quality all the way through.
