Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review - The Digital Fix

The best thing about Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was that it didn’t play like a typical Castlevania game. While the side 2D Metroidvania format worked well for the outstanding Symphony of the Night and a plethora of anime influenced handheld titles, the series needed to change drastically if it were to survive. Taking cues from God of War and Uncharted, and putting the star power of Hideo Kojima to good use, the ballad of Gabriel Belmont was a surprise hit back in 2010, even among the die-hard Castlevaniacs. Considering that the series was renowned for resurrecting the world’s most famous vampire game after game, MercurySteam have upped the stakes dramatically for the sequel. In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, you’re not long the vampire hunter – you are the dragon; you are Dracula. (Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 6/10
