"When Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was announced, fans didn’t know what to expect. The newest in a long line of titles was touted as a reboot for the series, and seemed to draw heavily from God of War, Prince of Persia, and even Shadow of the Colossus. Is this a true sequel to the fantastic Castlevania games of old? Did MercurySteam and Kojima Productions do the series justice?"
