Dom from DarkZero writes - "Castlevania: Lords of Shadow most likely caught people by surprise. For one, it was a title done by a western developer, MercurySteam, and not by legendary series producer Koji Igarashi and his Konami team. Two, it was in fact a rather great game, even if it did drop a lot of the mechanics that classify a Castlevania game and went in favour of the God of War template – blending the lore of the series into a title that focuses on action and story cutscenes. Even though Castlevania fans were divided by the title, it managed to pick up its fair share of fans, becoming the most sold Castlevania title to date. With a new band of followers on board ready for more mystical beast slaying, how does the sequel, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, hold up?"
