DarkZero staff writer Dominic writes "I was pleasantly surprised when Castlevania: Lords of Shadow released in 2010 - mainly for the fact that it was a great 3D Castlevania game that I thought would never happen during this generation's home consoles. It was a departure from the norm, since Castlevania, for the most part, has offered quality 2D action-adventure titles on handhelds, holding up its part of the Metroidvania sub-genre that fans love to throw out at anything that features similar gameplay mechanics. Lords of Shadow went in a different direction, aiming for new players to come to the franchise by focusing on the action side, cloning such games as God of War and slotting in its own lore. This worked, because Lords of Shadow is the most sold entry in the Castlevania franchise. Now, three years later, PC fans can experience the tale of Gabriel Belmont with this fantastic PC port that removes one thing that spoilt the console iteration of the game, the fluctuating sub 30 frame rate."
