Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2
Great game! must have for Old school Castlevania fans. Lot of exploring puzzles secrets to solve and action.This Game reminds me of Castlevania 2 Simons quest for the Nintendo NES.
The graphics,story,and the music are what made my $60 well spent.the begining wastes no time getting to action and story. It also recaps on what happened in the 3ds previous castlevania game. The only reason I did not give a solid 10 is because the game froze on me twice.and they make you use stealth missions as a rat and that is why most websites gave it a bad review(even gameinformer ) And I almost didn't buy the game because of the bad reviewes. So if you loved the first one, and want a solid story and action(epic) game . this is it. I haven't played a game 5 hours straight in years I think. There's about 15 plus hours of gameplay. The ending is well worth the rat missions and frustrating puzzles. The combat system is flawless.
More Dark, More Twisted, More Awesomeness!!
So before i got this game i had read tons of bad reviews regarding this game which made me iffy to buy it. Take them like a grain of salt from the critics cause they always way OVER analyze games or movies. Everyone has different tastes of what they like in gameplay and story. I really liked the first Castlevania: Lords of Shadows. Gameplay, graphics and story were great. I especially like how they picked up where the last one ended on this one. The graphics are awesome, music is wicked and although im only about 2 hours in the gameplay it is just as fun as the first one but better with a darker twist. I find this new game harder than the first one which is good because normally most games do not pose much of a challenge to me. The enemies are faster, bigger and more creative. The story since Gabriel is now the prince of evil is alot more dark and twisted which i dig but not before bedtime. lol. In someways the twistedness of this game reminds me a bit of the Dantes Inferno game which i freaking loved! Only things so far i didnt like about this game is the going back and forth between the Wolf realms can get a bit confusing and time consuming. Game glitched and froze on me once so hopefully that doesnt continue. I wish Gabriel had more options for stealth mode instead of only a little rat running around. I like more of the Medieval look from the first game and not so much the modern city style but i guess to evolve a story you have to change up the times/ages but atleast this one still goes back and forth in time and darker locations. Overall I only have played 2hrs in but its alot of fun and the boss battles are wicked especially the 3 Gorgons boss battle.. wink wink!! Enjoy!! PS. Do not play this game drunk. You will get lost and confused on what to do. haha. Have to use your brain more on this one than the first.
Great for the first few hours...
I am a fan of this series however but LoS2 has got to be one of the worst installments to date. Visually it is very good and gameplay is ok. I think Konami was banking on the visuals to distract from its more or less shallow content. The brooding reluctant hero approach is lame. Am I supposed to believe that the "Prince of Darkness" suddenly develops a conscience? The weapons mastering also reeks of lazy development it should actually read: repeat exact same button sequence with the 3 different weapons. New game+ is another unsatisfying feature; what they really mean is you can start the game over with all the secrets (by secrets I mean pain boxes, xp generating dungeon locks, and alters of sacrifice) already found and all of your xp for weapons you no longer have. Exploring the world becomes pointless since you have to progress to certain parts of the game to reach areas that will contain nothing. What happened to the days of playing through again as Richter, Joaqim, or Trevor? Alucard is there as an NPC. Overall this game is worth a single play through. Just try to find all the stuff the first time through since new game+ takes away all the useful abilities until you progress through the game again.
EPIC!!! BRILLIANT!!! STUNING!!
I freaking LOVE this game!, love the Castlevania games and LOS series has been a truly amazing story of the Belmont Clan. This game has everything a true gamer could ask for, musically, graphically, controls, story, gameplay etc... Gabriel "Dracula" is soo freaking kool. Lots of action and love how your able to go to the past and present time, the background castles are Beautiful. I just hope they continue to do castlevania like this.
Great Game All around
A castlevania Game where you get to Play Dracula.... Sounds like a bomb but this game Actually pulls it off.
Another master piece
Huge castlevania fan, this one is unique but still a very very great game, great story. The sound is phenomenal and the abilities Dracula has are amazing. Great combat, beautiful architectural in the buildings.. Am really enjoying LOS2. For any true castlevania fan, this game is amazing... I just hope they continue doing Castlevania games like this..
It Better Then Ever....
i can say this game is really epic,Deep story,JawDropping,Pretty Graphic i say no more about it... If you a castlevania fan and want to find out more about the story pick this game up it worth your time
another great castlvania epic tale
if you are a castlvania fan you will love is game,but if you have never played a castlvania game give it a try its never too late. plays alot like god of war but dont get me wrong its not god of war has more exploring than god of war. no glitches (have about 15 hours of time invested) and no freeze ups. over all it is a must try for all gamers.
Despite the negativity this game, and series, has received, this game is great. I never was a big fan of Castlevania although I found the series interesting; however, once I bought the Lords of Shadow series, I became a huge fan of Castlevania. This game is great and has an interesting plot and an interesting take on Dracula. I really do not find any problems with this game. Although the stealth sections can be a bit awkward and out of place, they are short and work well enough to where they are not annoying. I wish they could have done more with the modern city, like more interactions with people or just something like that. Anyone who enjoyed the first game and Mirror of Fate should buy this game.
