Fair use rationale for Image:Castlevania - Lament of Innocense (Gamecover).jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Castlevania - Lament of Innocense (Gamecover).jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 05:49, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Interesting Story[edit]

The Origins of the Belmont Clan. Leon Belmont, all the Belmonts, hunt vampires, because of the love for a woman. So, Walter, cursed Leon's fiance Sarah with vampirism. Rather than turn, she sacrificed herself to create the vampire killer whip. Hence the title "Lament of Innocence."

Critical Response[edit]

I deleted the line "Castlevania: Lament of Innocence has generally received positive reviews since its release."

Looking at the mixed reviews, a strong argument can be made against the word "positive". In fact, I see a somewhat "lukewarm" or "mediocre" critical response.

It's better just to let the numbers speak for themselves and let the readers make their interpretation. So, I deleted the line entirely. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.102.77.56 (talk) 23:14, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Letting the numbers speak for themselves, they told me that it did indeed recieve largely positive reviews. I won't argue the matter, since it's outside my expertise, but I would like to clarify those numbers, as they are currently more dificult to interpret than they should be.

European naming[edit]

Wasn't this just named "Castlevania" in europe, maybe this should be mentioned? --94.193.66.60 (talk) 11:36, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Indeed, it should be, as soon as you can find a reliable source to show that it's true. I'd put it in the development section, possibly the lead. Larrythefunkyferret (talk) 05:21, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Gameplay[edit]

Why is there no mention anywhere whether this is a 2D platformer or a 3D game? Why so much detail if it's going to omit the most important bits? I'd add it myself, but that's the information I came to this article to find out in the first place! So I don't know. Can someone with more knowledge address this deficiency? It's pretty ridiculous that it exists at all, imho. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 180.6.12.204 (talk) 14:53, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
