PlayDevil has reviewed the latest Castlevania game.
Here is a snippet:
"One final note that is worth mentioning is that Lords of Shadow 2 does something I've never seen in a hack 'n' slash game before, but is incredibly welcome and should be copied in all titles that follow it. Hidden away in a menu that you might never come across is an option to turn off quick time events. Those annoying button-mashing 'reflex tests' that add nothing to games of these kinds, especially when it's just to open a door or crank a lever, they can be turned off, and there is no penalty for doing so. I've stated before how much I despise QTEs, so I can't praise Konami and Co. enough for implementing this feature. Thank you."
