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.

What score GI gave to LoS 2?

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

Inception960d ago

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. :)
