(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

Destructoid
26 February 2014
  • Summary: Lords of Shadow may not have been the Castlevania game everyone wanted, but I mostly enjoyed it for what it was, and that ending was to die for. It was the perfect segue into Lords of Shadow 2 , which has been teased for nearly four years now as the return of Dracula -- the main man himself -- and a...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 review

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

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (PlayStation 3)

PC Magazine
22 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is a study in contrasts with wildly fun combat levels separated by monotonous stealth levels.
  • Pros: Gloriously grotesque gothic environments. Brilliant orchestral score. Bloody, visceral combat.
  • Cons: Ludicrous story hinges on Dracula's naivety. Tedious stealth sections.

  • Excerpt: An action-packed update to Konami's influential series, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a gorgeous game brimming with content, but is bogged down by linear level structure and mash-heavy combat.
  • Pros: Astounding production values, from graphics to music to voice; level structure offers replayability; tons of content; says Castlevania on the box.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 PC Review

DarkZero
3 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow most likely caught people by surprise. For one, it was a title done by a western developer, MercurySteam, and not by legendary series producer Koji Igarashi and his Konami team.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (PS3) Review – Dracula’s Return Doesn’t Suck, But it Lacks a Little Bite

Canadian Online Gamers
31 August 2012
  • Excerpt: The Castlevania franchise is long and storied at this point as Lords of Shadow 2 marks the 35 th installment in the series (crazy, I know). With that comes a very convoluted back story and history that may leave newcomers, and probably some veterans, scratching their heads over the plot to this one...
