Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2: A sequel’s sharp bite

 

The original Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was a reinvention of the Castlevania formula and story, focusing on the very first Belmont, Gabriel, and his quest to resurrect his wife. It was a surprisingly fantastic game, managing to evolve the Castlevania...

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.

When producing an anticipated sequel, a developer must always walk that fine line between “too familiar” and “too different.” If it's too much like the original, it will be accused of being a rehash that didn't require much effort. If it tries to do...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 review: Walk the line

Shallow gameplay and poor story decisions keep Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 from being a great game.

You see, Drac’s old friend Zobek has returned, and he has a bone to pick with all these Satanic cults that are screwing up his mojo. He promises Drac that, if he helps him out, he will grant him a final death and release from his torturous immortality
