Dracula’s Back in Town | Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review

New Gamer Nation
12 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Overall, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is a mixed bag that trends towards the positive. The new open-world concept works great and solves the camera issues with the first game. The characters, models and environments look great for the most part but leave out the gothic feel of the first game.
  • Pros: +Visual Fidelity, +Revamped Combat
  • Cons: -Stealth Sections, -Questionable Design

  • Excerpt: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is the kind of action title you would expect it to be. It features a wealth of button mashing, button combo experimentation, over-the-top action, constant dodging and/or blocking, and moments that beg you to stop and take in the awesome monster designs that...

(PlayStation 3 Review) Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

The Entertainment Depot
6 March 2014
  • Summary: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 built upon its predecessor in many meaningful ways, but it frequently stumbles whenever attempting something new. Comparing the segments set within Dracula’s castle to those in the modern city shows a clear difference in approach.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 PS3 Review

Console Obsession
2 March 2014
  • Excerpt: 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 that actually saw protagonist Gabriel Belmont...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

  • Conclusion: Playing as Dracula could have been handled so many different ways, and while I don't agree with everything that MercurySteam did with Lords of Shadow 2, the positive aspects overwhelm the negative. This is a worthy and fitting end to a fine trilogy.

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

PlayStation Universe
25 February 2014
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: 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
  • Cons: Dated-looking, slightly complicated skills menu could have been simplified and made to look more modern, Some repetitive stealth play

GamesRadar
25 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Lacking the focus, clarity and coherence of its precursor, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 fails to satisfy as a sequel or as a game in its own right, delivering muddled game design and little narrative resolution.
  • Pros: Powerfully affecting soundtrack, Beautiful medieval sections, Sometimes evokes the atmosphere of the first game
  • Cons: Combat lacks finesse, Too many poor diversions, Loss of scale and spectacle

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate HD Review

PlayStation Universe
27 November 2013
  • Summary: Though Mirror of Fate's HD upgrade looks great and its entertaining combat is a good move forward for the franchise, it doesn't reach the heights of its predecessor.
  • Pros: Solid HD upgrade, Combat is fast and entertaining, Robert Carlyle's performance
  • Cons: Weak voice acting, Story fails to move the franchise forward, All three characters feel and play the same
