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...

  • 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 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...

  • Conclusion: Mercury Steam has achieved something very impressive with Castlevania: Lords of Shadow . This is a successful and highly entertaining reboot of the series but, more than that, Mercury Steam has managed to move the game out from under the large shadow of Hideo Kojima.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

Video Game Generation
26 February 2011
  • Summary: Castlevania: Lord of Shadows borrows from several popular games (though ones whose intrinsic value or lack thereof are left to the reader to determine for themselves). The look, feel, and even gameplay of Van Helsing , Shadow of the Colossus , and God of War emanate miasmically through every fiber...
  • Pros: One of the most beautiful games I’ve seen in awhile.  Very nice job, graphically speaking.
  • Cons: Not a, Castlevania, game., Not very dark, “spooky”, or gothic – it’s a daytime action fest with werewolves thrown in for good measure., Some of the bosses are just too big and over the top, reflecting the true, Shadow of the Colossus/God of War, orientation the developers were shooting for here. ...

Console Obsession
28 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Behold! A lurching, ancient creature, limping, stumbling through the undergrowth towards you. Grave dirt slides off its flanks, metal bolts stick from its neck. Built from an ramshackle collection of other games and brought to life by the combined power of MercurySteam, thunder and a Kojima...
