D+PAD Magazine's review of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.
"Within Lords of Shadow 2 lies a fantastic game desperate to break free of its shackles. Sadly, those shackles remain thoroughly attached, leading to frustration and needless anguish even on the lowest difficulty setting. It’s a game broken up into both superb and unforgivably bad moments, which is a real shame given the love and care lavished upon some of the more detailed environments. In the end, Gabriel’s return isn’t quite as triumphant as it should have been and is subsequently tough to recommend to all but the most forgiving players. Not without merit, Lords of Shadow 2 is one to pick up at a lower price in the upcoming summer drought."
