    And I can't see where the hate is coming from. Sure, the game's got its flaws, but every game has.

    To me, it controls real nice, the graphics are very good (I have SMG, so I know what I'm talking about). The Story Mode is a bit too easy IMO, and playing through the same thing again in True Story Mode is quite dull, but the small stories behind each character really make up for this. (To be honest, I bought the game cause it was Castlevania and because of Maria's story, that should be on YouTube somewhere)
    The art style is also very nice, but that might be because I'm a fan of Death Note's art style (same artist). There is, however, a bad side to this: you don't really recognize some castlevania characters and instead you recognize characters from Death Note. A shame, but well...
    There's also lots of different modes, for example Castle Mode. You fight different enemies, with or without handicaps, and by doing that you unlock doors for a new battle, until you reach the final door, behind which hides Dracula.
    By achieving certain goals you unlock new accessories to dress your characters up. It's lulz to see Simon with wings, or a funny hat or something.
    Also, there's not 13 characters for you to play with like stated in the manual, but there's 14, the fourteenth one is this game's 'bad guy'.
    Like in any good fighting game, there's also an arcade mode, a survival mode, a training mode and so on.


    Overall, I'd give the game an 8.2/10. It's good.

    I usually like Castlevania games, this one just didn't cut it for me. It just felt like a mediocre fighting game with the Castlevania name tagged on in the hope of selling more copies.

    I don't mind companies experimenting with new concepts and ideas. I just wish this had something more to make it that bit more enjoyable.

    If you like this game, its very clear you do not own a real gaming system capable of playing real games to know why this game is so incredibly awful. So, i feel sorry for you and your family. Also, if you think trash like this is good, go try The conduit, its so garbage that it might be right up your alley!

    Konami Should Be Ashamed for releasing such utter crap.

    Whooo ... so much complaining!
    My nephew likes this game also! He plays it with the GC Controller and that's much better. I join him sometimes because I can't let him play Mortal Kombat ...
    It's true ... a shame for the Castlevania Title, but the look is great and there are really much worse games out!

    ... calm down!

    If someone likes the game, then that is good for them.

    Stop being a trolling douchebag. I've seen you do this multiple times in Wii threads tearing on people needing to 'get a real system' so they know what real games are about. Yes this game sucks as does Konami for not giving a real Castlevania game, but you're so transparent it's annoying. I hope some mod deals with your shit eventually.

    It's just as PettingZoo says. Returning to the topic, I also like Castlevania Judgement and for me it's very good game. I also would give it something about 8/10. I like the avaible character list, music and nice arenas plus Wi-Fi enable. And graphics IMO are pretty nice. Sure, it's not SMG or Okami style but still good. For me, the only disappointment are clumsy controls with Nunchuck+WiiRemote combo. That's all from me [​IMG]. And btw, Overlord Natie, I also like Death Note [​IMG]. Awesome anime/manga, too bad that there aren't gonna be game with Light and L on Wii, not to mention Ryuk :/. It could be awesome, especially if it would be something in Phoenix Wright series style [​IMG] .

    I don't think the game is bad.. I just don't think it's nothing special, it's a pretty generic 3d fighting game.

    The controls are fine and the music is an amazing collection of the best songs in the Castlevania series. I would buy the OST if a CD was available.

    I don't like the art style, but I recon that people that like Obata's works enjoy it.

    I think the hate here doesn't come from the game being bad.. but more from people wanting a new traditional Castlevania game and getting a fighting game instead [​IMG]

    Well, my younger bro loves this game, possibly because he is better than me at it lol.

    I like the art style, the video scenes and the story (what the characters say is pretty funny).

    However, this type of fighter doesn't suit me very well. There is not enough variety in moves and events to be a decent fighter, and the control scheme is too difficult.

    I think it's brilliant they tried something different with the franchise...but to be honest I really was very very very disappointed by this game.

    QFT.

    It seems like a quick cash in, it clearly could be a lot better if more time and effort was spent on it.
