ZTGD | Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition (PC) Review

Ken McKown writes: It’s hard to believe that it has been nearly three years since Mercury Steam released its reboot of the Castlevania franchise. Lords of Shadow remains one of my favorite games of this generation, despite its flaws. Now, returning to it years later I remember why I fell in love with Gabriel Belmont’s adventure in the first place. The epic set pieces, fantastic voice acting and variety of enemy encounters hold up, and now PC players can see it all in super high resolution glory. Toss in both DLC packs and we have a package worthy of the Belmont name. (Castlevania Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition, PC) 8.5/10

I had it on PS3, but I bought it again off Steam just to support this amazing developer and because the PC version is the one I want to keep in my collection.

It runs very well and looks amazing. The solid 60fps, 1080p resolution, superior texture filtering, and much better anti-aliasing really makes this game live up to its full potential.

On consoles it was one of the best looking games I have played, but it was let down by the aliasing and poor frame rate. On PC it looks outstanding and easily beats other 3rd person action/hack n slash games.

There is just so much diversity and content in this game and I loved the platforming and combat. The characters and voice acting are incredible and the musical score is simply some of the best music to be found in a game.
