Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2 hands-on - Making your PS3 or 360 relevant again - MMGN

MMGN writes: Early impressions of Lords of Shadow 2 bring back fond memories of classics embedded in the hack-and-slash genre. Those behind the game might resent comparisons to the likes of God of War, but it’s tough not to shine a light on the obvious similarities present in Dracula’s upcoming outing. Thankfully, with a stronger focus on adventure and exploration, that obvious but perhaps unintentional ode deviates from MercurySteam’s core Castlevania interpretation, propelling a strong sense of originality and challenge.

Lighting returns and LOS2 are probably the last games I'm getting for 360. Anyway I just got done playing the LOS2 demo. I feel like LOS2 is shaping up to be better than the first in every way. I feel like not enough people know about Lords of shadow tho

I really hope that GameInformer Review is wrong. I loved the first one and if it's just more of the same then I will be more than satisfied.

The demo was underwhelming 1 was much better. Don't know what they did the graphics look worse.

Hell no. It looks A LOT better than the first one. At least when comparing the PC versions. The lighting, character models, textures, and post process effects are all of a much higher quality than in the first game. Not to mention that it is rendering a lot more geometry since you control the camera and there is detail in every direction.

I think it is easily one of the best looking games of the generation and really isn't too far behind "next gen" games like Assassin's Creed 4.

Anyway, i loved the 1st one too and LoS 2 demo play more awesome than the 1st one.

6/10?! No way! They must be kidding. From the demo alone, i can predict it between 8.5-9/10.

Hopefully their wrong...

I bet that particular reviewer just has an axe to grind or some personal bias that made him not like it. I predict most reviews will be in the 8s and 9s.

I can't speak for everyone, but my ps3 is on fire right now. I have so many free games that I don't know what to do. I don't even have time to play Ryse, or Resogun. Haven't turned on my PS4 for at least a week. My xbone, I did turn on today... I watched tv. :)
