Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Ultimate Edition - Análisis
And that is the first thing the character did in the first three-dimensional Castlevania: cross himself. It was a long time ago 1999 when Nintendo 64 users received that title, a very high-level action game, with open arms. It was not the first game in the series, of course, but it was the first in 3D. Eleven years later, Xbox 360 and PS3 received the expected Lords of Shadow , subtitle with which the game was shown for the first time, although given the appearance there was no shortage of cabal about whether it would be a new installment of the vampire hunter saga. And so it was, in 2010, MercurySteam dazzled with outstanding work in the face of all criticism. A game in which the saga shook hands with references of adventure and third-person action such as God of War.
Three years later, a version adapted to PC and with the two built-in expansions is what concerns us (and works perfectly from the beginning, a very useful warning for PS3 players, who suffered a problem with the first versions: the game was erased before the end of the game, and it is not exactly easy to get there ...). But instead of talking about the benefits of the original title, let's analyze what this new version offers users.
Gabriel Belmont, a strong warrior, suffers a horrible loss. His wife, Marie, has been murdered. Faced with the recent wave of monsters and violence, the Brotherhood of Light (who took care of him since he was abandoned as a baby) sends him to seek answers and get an artifact that would allow him, to get to the bottom of the situation, to resurrect his beloved, who comforts and guides him during this journey at times (some Dante's Inferno fan has noticed a ringing in his ear already). There is no shortage of references to Dracula, against whom the player has always faced during the titles of this series, although this time we are on a very different timeline from the rest of Castlevanias.
The adventure takes Gabriel to cross forests, castles, temples, ruins and towns, facing all kinds of enemies, from spiders and forest beings to vampires, passing among others by werewolves. The variety and intensity are undeniable, and the ensemble is signed with an enviable artistic finish. The adaptation to compatible has not been a problem, and on PC you can enjoy the game in all its glory. Visually, despite being a title with a few years on, it leaves nothing to be desired. It is undeniable that at this point other PC games have been raised to a much higher level, but that does not mean that we are facing a great exponent, especially speaking of the hack'n slash genre. The environments are beautiful, the lights are well worked and the graphic aspect in general is spectacular, relying on cinematographic cameras that squeeze the best points of view to offer a great visual section.
We can see a lot of enemies on screen at the same time, although the designs are repeated a lot. Another aspect to take into account in the game, at least technically, is that it is not about “squeezable” giant scenarios, given that the linearity of the title makes us take a single path, which is not usually very broad, except for the points where intense fighting takes place. These are somewhat more open to allow the necessary mobility for dodging, attacking and many other actions. The backgrounds, the water, the vegetation and the textures of the rocks offer a very positive effect. Special mention deserves the great final enemies of the levels, which due to their size refer us directly to games like Shadow Of The Colossus.
You can choose several resolutions, from some more moderate to others that squeeze the graphics almost to the maximum, and the shadows, synchronization and filters can be turned on or off, looking for a good fluidity depending on which machines.
