Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate Review

Mar 16, 2013

Mirror of Fate is set after the events of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, a title released for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. The game begins with Trevor Belmont setting out on a quest to avenge his mother’s death at the hands of his father, Gabriel Belmont. If you haven’t played through Lords of Shadow, I’m about to spoil something for you so you may want to skip to the next paragraph. During the first set of cut scenes it’s explained that Gabriel Belmont has become Dracula, and his infant son Trevor has been taken under the protection of the Brotherhood of Light. Gabriel is unaware of Trevor’s existence and as Trevor grows, he too has a son of his own, Simon. As with his own father, Simon is also separated from his parents at an early age. The game has you play the roles of several different characters, but you begin with Simon as he enters Dracula’s castle. He’s come to avenge the death of his father many years ago.
