From the review, "About 10 minutes into Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 , Gabriel “Dracula” Belmont destroys the magic, crystal, power source of a castle-sized, steampunk titan by opening his mouth and spewing out Super Blood Vomit™. Clearly, MercurySteam feels it has something to prove, and the initial moments seem to serve a as a setup for something dark, disgusting, unsettling, and edgy. Gabriel comes across as, excuse my language, a badass.
Except the rest of the game sticks players with an emo Dracula who’s a brooding antihero, stealthily creeping through factories, sewers, and some decidedly trite and unepic locations in search of redemption. Something doesn’t feel quite right."
