2003 trailer for Castlevania: Lament of Innocence.
Honestly, this trailer made things look a lot better than the game actually was. Not to say that it wasn’t a fun game though! Leon Belmont was kind of dramatic the whole time as he tried to rescue Sara and defeat her kidnapper, Walter. It’s supposed to be the origin story for the series, though it is not the most compelling story. The difficulty also seems to spike every once in a while, and with the kind of awkward controls and view points, platforming and enemy-fighting had the potential to get really out of hand.
It was pretty good, even if it’s not the strongest in the series. If you really like the Castlevania series I’d say play it, otherwise you might not find much reason to finish it.
This is the trailer for a game released in 1999 for the original PlayStation called Galerians. It starts out with amnesiac boy Rion in a mental hospital. He uses psychokinetic abilities to escape his room, and follows the voice of a girl named Lilia, who is supposed to be a close childhood friend of his. An artificial intelligence named Dorothy realized that it can process information far better than humans, and when Dr. Steiner told Dorothy about the existence of god, she decided that she was god herself, and rebelled against human-kind.
The game is intense, and it got a sequel in Galerians: Ash. There was a movie based off the first game called Galerians: Rion and it was basically just the entire first game’s cut scenes smoothed out and put on a DVD. The story is the same, and if you never get to play the game I suggest watching it.
This is one of the games I really wish would get a port or remake along with Ash, it’d be really awesome to see this in updated graphics with maybe even updated controls.
