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

newgamernation.com
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 occasionally crop up. Understand that I'm not in any way bashing the game; quite the contrary.

  • 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 transform into the series antagonist, the prince of darkness himself, Dracula.

  • Excerpt: When producing an anticipated sequel, a developer must always walk that fine line between “too familiar” and “too different.” If it’s too much like the original, it will be accused of being a rehash that didn’t require much effort. If it tries to do too many new things, it will invariably annoy fans of the first title.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Collection PS3 Review

About.com
15 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Collection Image © Konami Everyone with a PS3 should play “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow” before they move on to the next generation. It’s a fantastic game. Sure, the DLC was a bit rushed and the DS game may have been better off staying on the handheld, but this is a collection release designed to build buzz for the meat of the package in time for the sequel coming this February.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review: Bloody fun

GameZone
12 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Taking place hundreds of years after the original Lords of Shadow and its sequel, Mirror of Fate , Lords of Shadow 2 opens with Dracula -- formerly Gabriel Belmont -- awakening in modern day. Noticeably weakened from his years of lying dormant, Dracula -- filled with grief and guilt -- is seemingly content with withering away in a crumbling cathedral. But when he's approached by his old friend Zobak, things take an interesting turn.

Test Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2

Generation NT
9 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Plutôt fun à prendre en main en dépit de quelques défauts mineurs, Castlevania : Lords of Shadow 2 dispose également d'une belle direction artistique. Arborant de splendides panoramas extérieurs et des détails parfois très qualitatifs dans certaines zones intérieures, le jeu assure un atmosphère de qualité, bien que légèrement en deçà de son aîné.
  • Pros: Très bonne prise en main, Direction artistique réussie, Excellente bande sonore, Durée de vie honorable, Bonne réalisation graphique
  • Cons: Phases d'infiltration inintéressantes, Beaucoup d'allers-retours, Quelques effets d'aliasing, Les murs invisibles

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

Strategy Informer
5 August 2011
  • 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. Kojima's influence is apparent but it falls short of being the defining feature of the game.
