Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review | GameCloud

William at GameCloud writes:

"Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is a game that tried to pursue too many new ideas, and in turn, couldn’t implement any of them particularly well. In my opinion, the modern setting just doesn’t work, and the open-world design only serves to needlessly complicate player exploration. In fact, everything about this game feels as if it’s constantly working to disempower the player, and this is a poorly suited match to the idea of playing as Dracula. Going in, you’re going to have to be prepared to trudge through many tedious missions to regain your powers before things get interesting. However, if you can stick with it, the second half of the game will deliver a lot of fan-service, and leave the modern world to spend more time chasing mysteries in an alternate reality. This is where it all starts to feel like Castlevania again, and while it’s still not at its best, it will be worthwhile for fans of the saga." (Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 6.5/10
