Konami's new take on the Castlevania franchise has arrived. We're now in the process of reviewing developer Mercury Steam and Kojima Productions' new action-adventure game and want to know what you want to know about Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

In an effort to ensure that Kotaku's reviews are better informing you about the content, the gameplay, and the positives and negatives of the games we play, we're looking to more directly and actively involve the community. If you have a burning question about Castlevania: Lords of Shadow that you want to see answered in our upcoming review, this is the place to ask.

It's also the right place for Kotaku commenters to talk to each other about the game. Answer each other's questions, ask new ones, and let us know what is important to you about each game we review. We're hoping to directly answer some of your questions in future reviews, kicking off the discussion in posts like this one.


(This is not, however, the best place to praise, grumble or vent about Kotaku's review format. Please take that discussion to the #kotakueditorialboard or e-mail me directly at mike@kotaku.com so that we can discuss it.)

So. Let's have it. What do you want to know about Castlevania: Lords of Shadow?

I want to know about the music please. Castlevania is most always ahead of the pack in audio/visual departments. We know the game looks good, how's it sound?

I want to know if the game is hard. And not just if it's hard, I want to know how it's hard. Too often, enemies in 3D action games obligingly allow the player to stand right next to them for several seconds before attacking. Too often in 3D action games enemies are passive and don't swarm the player like they could. Are the enemies dangerous?

I want to know if the ending is a cop out or not. Don't spoil it of course, but I understand that it leaves plenty of room for a sequel. If it ends on a cliffhanger, that should be noted in the review. Because that's infuriating.
