ARS: Sixty dollars is a lot of money, and time is something you can't buy at any price. Why not do something enjoyable? Lords of Shadow offers you boring gameplay with a side dish of uninspired story. I don't care if you have the budget of a Trump combined with the life expectancy of a MacLeod, there are better things for you to do with your time and money.
Lords of Shadow is just bland, a mishmash of warmed over ideas that adds up to less than the sum of their parts. It's not terrible, but that would almost be preferable. Yes, this sounds whiny, but life is too short for games that aren't fun. Right now I'm playing more involving games, I'm halfway through a good book, and I hear there was a lesbian scene in last night's episode of Glee. All of those things are preferable.
P.S.: The framerate on the 360 version is bad.
