Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

 

A sequel bad enough to send Dracula back to his grave

Some great gothic scenery ; Strong and satisfying combat ; Optional quick time events

Incoherent, rambling plot ; Tiresome modern settings ; Too much padding

Lords of Shadow bought the classic vampire series back to life, but the sequel seems hell-bent on putting it back six feet under. Somewhere in here there’s a decent game with strong mechanics and a rich, Gothic art style, but it’s buried beneath an...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 PS3 Review

 

As reboots go, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow did interesting things with Konami's famous and much loved series, with developer MercurySteam crafting a game that was as much God of War as it was Castlevania, and it also featured a surprising conclusion...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 isn’t as accomplished a game as any of the previous games in the Lords of Shadow series with some pointless new additions and some regressions from what the previous games did so well, but it’s still a relatively strong,...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 - an ambitious, blood-soaked, epic action adventure

 

Picking up where MercurySteam's content-crammed action adventure left off, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 steps things up a notch with a darker, more thought-provoking chapter in the series which focuses on cult blood-sucker Dracula as he battles...

So much gameplay variation that it feels like an epic adventure ; Intuitive and in-depth combat system ; Rewarding open-world arena that begs to be explored

Dated-looking, slightly complicated skills menu could have been simplified and made to look more modern ; Some repetitive stealth play

A content-crammed, entertaining action adventure with a brilliant combat system, LOTS 2 is a fitting tribute to what may be MercurySteam's Castlevania curtain-call.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 – Truly A Castlevania Game

 

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow felt like a game with a bit of an identity crisis, like it was missing something to make it truly worthy of the Castlevania name. Lords of Shadow 2 just might be the missing ingredient.

Once again, you take the role of Gabriel Belmont, who has by this point fully become Dracula. The once-proud warrior has mysteriously awoken in a high-tech future, beckoned by his old ally Zobek. Under Zobek's supervision, Dracula attempts to topple...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review

 

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is the latest in the series reboot from MercurySteam. Many originally showed scepticism when the Spain-based dev studio were passed the reins, previous attempts to outsource traditionally Japanese franchises to western...

Finally taking down a troublesome boss on the fifth or sixth try.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 review: Walk the line

 

As the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow trilogy would have it, Dracula is very different from the vampire we all know, even when compared to his many incarnations in the Castlevania series. Betrayed by God, hated by Satan and feared by humanity, this...

In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, the origin of Dracula and his legendary connection with the Belmonts was revealed. In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, fans can expect thrilling new twists and challenges. In this shocking conclusion to the Lords of...
