Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 got a resounding ‘meh’ out of me. While the game play mechanics were fun, they got boring over time and downright aggravating with the plethora of rage inducing boss battles.
The first Lords of Shadow was a sweet surprise. The follow-up is a hostage to a story it tells badly, and a prisoner within a dull urban maze that refuses to become a characterful exploratory playground. To live on but to be diminished - that's the fate of the vampire in Castlevania's lore. Sadly, it's a bit of an epitaph for this well-meaning but bloated game as a whole.
CLOS 2 is the conclusion of the epic saga, you can experiment the full power of the prince of darkness with all awesome skills.
The graphics are wonderful, the scenario bring us to the past of castle of Dracula and combine with current time.
the design of the characters is very well
sometimes the system of battle is repetitive
and some elements of stealth are useless.
In fact, i recommend you must play the game and let him surprise you
I am deeply disappointed with Konami at the moment, They sell off Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes as a complete package, but it turns out to be an overpriced demo. Then they cancelled Silent Hills, which could have been one of the greatest horror games of all time. Now they're firing Kojima, but forcing him to finish Phantom Pain first. Anyway, back to this review, Castlevania, LOS2 is a very big disappointment compared to LoS 1. The combat is excellent, and the graphics are pretty too, but that doesn't make up for this game's many flaws. There is lots of completely unnecessary stealth sections where Dracula turns into a rat, hiding from enemies, trying to be some sort of Solid Rat. There is also a frustrating and unnecessary open world setup, which is very hard to traverse. The story is boring and uninteresting too. Konami has f@#ked up, as per usual. Don't buy this unfinished mess, wait for Phantom Pain to come out and buy that.
Imagine if you will, the possibilities of a modern third-person interpretation of a classic Castlevania adventure. Good isn't it?
Now imagine that experience pushed aside for a "God of war clone". And a bad one at that.
As I played through the game, it just made me want to play God of war 2. So I did. I had a great time.
