Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2
Great graphics, music, atmosphere
This game is so underrated, if you like god of war, uncharted, assasins creed you will love it.. i loved every part of the game from begining to the end. Few puzzles, great bosses, great, music, voice acitng. is good.
Could have been better
I was looking forward to this game for quite some time. Playing it just seemed like a re-cap of the same abilities the protagonist had in LOS1. Dracula's main weapon was a whip. I know he is Gabriel, but I was really hoping for a different main power. I was looking forward to tapping into some more vamparic type powers. As you play as dracula, you pretty much start out very weak, after the first act. This is dissapointing, because any Castlevania fan has a true admiration of Dracula, as he was always challenging to defeat.
Although I was thankful for simular controls, the moves were all the same, and this made it feel like the same experience as LOS1. The ending was very bland and borning.
There were several bugs and lock-ups when I tried the "New Game +" feature. I was also hoping for an Alucard character skin to play with, just for fun.
To sum this up: worth a few days rent, but not to buy. The replay is way too low. The story was good with such a let down of an ending.
Cool game. Castlevania games in the past would always make the game more interesting with the music. But the music in the last 3 new Castlevania games sucks!!! Im pretty sure many people noticed that. What happend to the great music Castlevania had before!?!?!? Again, the music SUCKS!!!!
Doesn't Win You Like the First, But Still Good
The Lords of Shadow series, in my opinion, is a touching tribute to the Castlevania series. The first LoS will always be the best, and its sequel is good, but does have its flaws. Everybody by now knows about the stealth scenes (you can't fight a guy with a grenade launcher, but you destroyed an undead dragon, while human, with a whip). The explanation for it makes sense as you've been out of the spotlight for some time, but come on. On the plus side, the boss fights are cool, the voice acting works, and playing as Dracula is fun.
this game is aweomse
this game far surpasses LOS in every single way i have know idea what game informer was talking about they were outta of there mind.... I give this game a ten outta of ten
Solid game a few things that could have been done differently but overall satisfied, GI gave it a 6 gs gave it a 7 I give it a 8 cause i think it deserved it
Awesome I played the demo
LOS has been getting a bad break. critics complained about LOS and fate of 2 mirrors i don't see why both are worthy editions as this looks to be as well. Funny how this and GOW are similar types of game and i liked GOW but LOS was a much better game than any GOW. I was happy to see that LOS is getting a sequel. I have downloaded and played the demo and I am not disappointed mercury steam looks to be doing an awesome job. I am a fan of castlevania from the nes to snes to genesis to ps1 to ps2 to xbox to gameboy, advance to ds to 360, ps3, wii to 3ds. I have played almost all the games spanning systems. as afan of the series i have adjusted to each turn the series has taken. LOS series is still castlevania whether critics agree. I appreciate a different take the prequel to the castlevania saga. I can't wait for the full game cause the demo met and exceeded my expectations
So, in anticipation for this game I went out and got the first "Lords of Shadow" and I love it! It's such a great game and I finished the first of the 14 chapters maybe 10 minutes ago. So I watched a bunch of reviews on the first one to see if it was worth and and all of them were talking about this twist ending that will shock the hel out of you...Just watched the trailer...I wonder what might happen at the end of the first. smh
Heard that it won't be that good
I just got my Gameinformer Magazine through the mail today and it rated the game 6/10 because it is a patch-work mess and disappointing. So now I'm going straight to Gamestop today and cancel the pre-order for this game
Trailer gives me chills..
I love the trailer for this game & can not WAIT to play it. :)
I hope that dude at the end with white hair is Alucard... He was in Mirror of Fate if I remember right, so he should be in the following title as well..
Hopefully he is an unlockable character so we can once again swing around swords and shields like the good ol' days of Symphony of the Night.. That'd be nice..
So HYPED!! :D
