Castlevania: Lords of Shadow takes place at the end of days. The Earth's alliance with the Heavens has been threatened by a dark and malevolent force - the mysterious Lords of Shadow - darkness reigns the world. Across this shattered land, the souls of the dead wander unable to find peace, whilst creatures of evil roam free wreaking chaos and death upon the living. Gabriel is a member of the Brotherhood of Light, an elite group of holy knights who protect and defend the innocent against the supernatural. His beloved wife was brutally murdered by the evil forces of darkness and her soul trapped for eternity. Neither living nor dead she realizes the horrific truth of what is at stake and guides Gabriel to his destiny - and hopefully salvation for the world... but at what cost? Thus, Gabriel must travel the destroyed world, defeating the evil tyrants in order to use their powers to bring balance back to the world. Armed with the versatile Combat Cross - the world's last hope must encounter the three factions of the Lords of Shadow and end their unholy rule.

Rated 9.0 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZINGLY GOOD! As soon as I started I was drawn in the beautiful scenery combined with music and story made the cut scenes touch my very soul. Yes I know it seems as if I am exaggerating but I'm not. I felt as if I truly were Gabriel Belmont. The twists and turns made me love it even more and the smooth game play and character progression is worth the 100% completion. I rented it from GameFly but I will DEFINITELY buy my own copy. I can't wait to play the sequel. I loved that they had Patrick Stewart as the narrator and as a main character. The only problem I had was the camera. At times when holding still it shook just a bit but in all honesty it's still worth the play. Thank you Lords of Shadows for relighting the spark of my love of the Castlevania franchise!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a great game with little problems is a great game with an interesting story, a fun combat, and quite memorable fights with bosses, the only problem I find with the game are the camera angles coming to upset on more than one occasion, but it is certainly a great video game

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Castlevania game worth waiting for. There is so much to say about this game and if i typed it all, it would take me a year. To keep it somewhat short i can say that this game is AMAZING! A fresh new style of gameplay for the Castlevania series and it was in the direction i always wanted to be in. You play as a new charcter from the Belmont clan named Gabriel. His past is a bit mysterious but adds depth to the game. The variety of power-ups and abilities adds to the over all strength of Gabriel once you get closer to the end of the game and can be found or bought in each level. some are easy to find and others are hard and take a bit of puzzle solving or skill to get. The style of gameplay is a third person action adventure game and has taken a lot of insperation from classic games such as God of War and Shadow of the Colossus. Many people dislike Castlevania LoS because they feel like it is being "ripped off" or copied from these games, but i feel like it is an homage to them. Levels can vary from being very long or very short. A problem i have with Castlevania LoS is that some of the puzzles are extremely difficult and don't make much sense. I had to look up a few after giving up 3 days of not being able to figure it out on my own. Another problem i had with this game is that (spoiler alert, i guess) is that The game doesn't take place in the castle too much. I remember it having a lot of chapters but they where only about two to three levels long. Overall, the game has immense beauty and the graphics are breath taking. The cinematography for the game play is outstanding and beautiful and the music fits right along with it. The game has a great blend of action and puzzle solving along with memorable boss battles that make hours and hours of excellent gameplay. Boss battles are tough yet fun and can range from fighting a giant warg to climbing a titan! I would definitely recommend this game to fans of God of War and action-adventure titles. Like i said, there is hours of fun, and the level designs are all different. I hope you pick up a copy of this and give it a play.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Castlevania is dead. What could be said about this game that isn't derogatory? The game elements are copied from other games, poorly I might add (Climbing giant bosses was stolen from Shadow of the Colossus, and other elements from God of War). This doesn't feel like Castlevania mostly because Lords of Shadow wasn't supposed to be a Castlevania game. This is a boring hack and slash. It is repetitive. The soundtrack from other Castlevania games was magnificent, and this game does nothing to revive them. Do not buy this game. Supporting this kind of disgusting game will only make them make more horrible games like Lords of Shadow 2. If you value yourself as a gamer, STAY AWAY.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ONE OF THE BEST GAMES EVER MADE this game was one of my personal favorite games ever made. it was challenging at some parts of it but i beat it in 3 to 4 days after christmas and i was and yet i wasn't surpised by the ending because my friend got it the day it came out and i think it made some sense that the main character Gagerial turned out to be in the ending credits to being the prince of darkness DRACULA. I can't wait for lords of shadow 2, but i wish that you are playing as alucard but maybe if you beat it as gaberial you will get the choose to play the whole game over again was gaberial or alucard. THEY SHOWED ALUCARD AT THE END OF THE FIRST TRAILER ABOUT CASTLEVANIA LOS2

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lords of Shadows Although the game's story differs from the original canon series, this is not a Castlevania that should be pushed away because of it. The game is beautiful in many ways. The sound is perfect (actors voices and music), the graphics are great as well, combining awesome animation with real-looking people and beasts, and the gameplay is also something to fully enjoy. I've seen people complain about the fact that the player can't control the camera, but personally I think that it gives the game the original Castlevania style, by making you see only what you should, and at the same time, hiding important items out of the frame, which makes you look for them so you don't miss them. And sometimes the game moves in such a dynamic way that mekes you feel some kind of adrenaline in battle. The game also has puzzles and the option of gaining experience points to buy skills that makes the main character, Gabriel, more powerful. And of course awesome boss battles. The only thing that looks off the game is the fact that we don't spend most of the time in Dracula's Castle, as most of the Castlevania series, but this is for obvious reasons that I will not tell for the sake of those who hasn't play the game. And finally the story, many can find it frustrating because is not the very original story that people have been following since the NES, but the story is so amazing that you stop caring about that fact and just wanna see how it ends. So buy it, you won't regret it, is really REALLY good.
