Games review: Castlevania:
Harmony of Despair
Friday 06 August 2010
Format Xbox Live Arcade
Harmony of Despair will be immediately recognisable to veterans of previous Castlevania entries, holding true as it does to the series’ combative side-scrolling routes. Enlivening proceedings immensely is the inclusion of a six-player mode and a scalable viewpoint enabling the player to view the labyrinth-like stages in their entirety. This is a tough game: solo players will face near insurmountable odds, so best take a friend.
