VideoGamer: "MercurySteam did a great job on the art direction for Lords of Shadow 2, crafting a beautiful world. It's crying out for something meaningful to happen within it, and yet it rarely does."
The Castlevania dudes should stop learning from other games and make new shit on their own, first it was God of War , then Zelda, and now Dark Souls ? can't they create something great and unique on their own ? no wonder it's getting mixed reviews.
Castlevania has sh!t to learn from Dark Souls, a non- Hack & Slasher.
Lords of Shadow doesn't need to learn ANYTHING from Dark Souls. Dark Souls isn't even that great of a game, Demon's Souls is much better in almost every aspect. Another mainstream gamer thinking Dark Souls is great because it's different than the average first-person shooter drivel that has been coming out as of late. If Lords of Shadow 2 is bad then it doesn't need to take elements from Dark Souls; it just needs to be a better game.
Ugh you demons souls elitists are terrible.
What gave it away, lol? IMO the gameplay mechanics are much better and I prefer the equipment upgrades as well, but the game is fantastic. I mainly just like the world, atmosphere, and nexus in Demon Souls. I really did not care for the tendencies, and I thought the covenants were a nice addition. But what does that matter I am a maiunstream gamer apparently, lol
