Play this, support more brilliant remakes - but remember that endings are the hardest part to write.

Summary: I... wish you had been better, LoS2. LoS1 was a tour de force, literally - the art and craft showcased in the narrative and gameplay of the first game made expectations for the second soar. Sadly, this burden carried a bit too much weight. The game is solid, and a 'conclusion' to the Lords of Shadow trilogy, and worth playing as that - but still, there's a hole in my heart (neck?) for Gabriel and his clan - what more could have been?
The game is great but do not buy from this seller because the case came in damaged and I thought the disc was too,take no chance

Summary: The game is fantastic but there are a few annoyances. Like when you're fighting if you block one monster another will attack you and probably mess up your focus which is stupid to me and that didn't use to happen in the 1st one. It's very challenging and that's just the campaign not the challenge mode (gl with that btw). I felt like I had to get it because I played the 1st one but in a lot of ways the 1st was better, this one has it's moments though.
Great Game, but having a bit of mixed feelings ...

Summary: Great Game, but having a bit of mixed feelings about it, the game itself is great, the mechanics, the response and the feel of it is pretty fun as far as a decent game should be, but if you are a castlevania enthusiast like myself, then it may be fall a little short on your expectations, you will not find that many classic castlevania like features on it, no werewolves, ghosts, vampires or other classic monsters, this time, there will be demons and mutants, no...
Summary: I like this game, but I didn't love it. The first one was a sleeper, and a really enjoyable great game. This is the first Castlevania where you can play as Dracula, but it seems that this Dracula is lacking in strength. I wish that you were able to make Dracula a bit more powerful. The map was very confusing as well, considering that there were basically two seperate maps. Overall, I did enjoy the game though.

Summary: Same as most people I was expecting everything on disc, and this for me was one of those recommended purchases and as a "collection" I was actually expecting the full LOS2 game not a crap demo.
