Crave: If you gloss over the details of the Mercury Steam and Kojima Productions developed Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, it includes every detail that fans have longed for since 3D gaming came into prominence. Beautiful visuals, varied environments, in-depth combat system, workable platforming in three dimensions, Patrick Stewart. In theory, these elements should transform the 3D Castlevania experience into an exciting, vampire slaughterfest. Unfortunately, the game is a mixed bag, delivering on many levels but with downfalls that result in an uneven experience overall. Lords of Shadow is a perfect example of a video game that will have gamers arguing with one another for hours on end. Depending on your gaming preferences, you’ll likely wind up absolutely loving this game or simply despising it.
