Dracula will do things "you disagree with" in Lords of Shadow 2

GR-UK writes: We caught up with Enric Alvarez, creative director of Lords of Shadow 2, to talk about nailing the character of Dracula - one you'll see "do questionable things" according to the director.

"What I can say is that Dracula in this game is going to do things that you are going to disagree [with]. We are insisting in presenting a character that is the Prince of Darkness for real. You don't earn [that title] for nothing. So we are trying to be very very clear about that this time you have the villain as the main character.

Your first comment isn't specific enough to show the meaning given in your second comment. That is where the misunderstanding occurs.

Kratos is seen as a man who lost everything and was never allowed to be free from his suffering. We are more able to compare ourselves to Kratos than Dracula because he is human. In a sense, it is more understandable to see Kratos's actions as more humane.
