Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is an Action-Adventure game which serves as the final chapter in Konami's Lords of Shadow reboot of the classic Castlevania game series. The game revisits the actions of one-time member of the 'Brotherhood of Light,' Gabriel Belmont, in the previous game installment and details the consequences of those actions in the face of the rise of a familiar, ancient evil that only he has the ability to combat.

The Return of Gabriel Belmont and Dracula

At the end of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, the origin of Dracula and his legendary connection with the Belmonts was revealed. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is the sequel to that 2010 reboot of the Castlevania series for play on Next-Gen game consoles. In it fans can expect thrilling new twists, action, adventure and challenges, as Dracula returns, this time to battle ultimate evil. Yet the dilemma is that he himself is greatly weakened and yearning for release from his immortal bonds. To succeed against the powerful threat he stands against, the vampire lord must reacquire his old powers - and only his castle holds the key. However, the famed Belmont clan also seeks his ultimate destruction in this shocking conclusion to the Lords of Shadow series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun game that does the series proud February 25, 2014
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
The negative review from Game Informer almost kept me from buying this game, but I'm glad that I did. I'll go over each of the core aspects of the game and give you what I liked and what I didn't.

==============================

Combat (4/5)

Has a very God of War like feel to it. In fact, much of the game does. If you feel that a God of War style presentation or combat system strays too far from Castlevania's roots then you may not like it, but if you enjoyed the combat in God of War you'll like it here as well.

You have 3 main melee weapons. The Shadow Whip is the weapon you'll use most often and it has the best range. The Void Sword has a shorter range but replenishes health when you strike enemies with it. The Chaos Claws deal the most damage but have short range, and are the only weapons that can deal damage to some shielded foes.

Each weapon has it's own skill tree. There are skill trees that you can progress in as you gain experience points. You can also "master" certain skills by using them more. Once mastered, they become more effective in combat. This encourages you to use combos and skills that you may not have otherwise used as often, so that you can master them as well.

You also have access to projectiles like daggers, which do different things depending on which melee weapon you have equipped, you can send a swarm of bats to distract enemies for the stealth sections, and several relics exist that can be used as limited items such as the classic hourglass that slows enemies' movement, a bird that can reveal secret locations, a health replenishing flask, and others.

3.0 out of 5 stars Devs lost the magic from the first LOS March 7, 2014
By Am
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
I was a huge fan of the first and was super excited to finish the LOS series as the prince of darkness himself.

***I did my best to avoid spoilers but I did reference minor events and some characters in very general terms.

First the good:

The story started off pretty slow at first with the occasional bright spot, but about half way through it picks up considerably and finishes strong. I especially enjoyed the redemption aspects of the story and without giving away any specifics I'll just say that Drac is the perfect anti-hero. We also get to meet some big names from previous versions of the series which I felt was a nice addition (even if the Devs don't explore enough of their stories).

Gameplay is as solid as ever with heavy emphasis on leveling weapons for new and stronger moves. Comparisons to GOW or Devil May Cry aren't far off but I thought it worked fine and didn't mind the similarities.

Graphics were fairly well done and fit with the overall story. Nothing special but nothing stood out as bad either. I would say that about half the game is set in a modern, yet surprisingly under populated city, while the other half is set in his castle. I would have preferred for about 90%of the game been in the castle and just had the ending set in the urban areas.

Now the bad:

Robots have absolutely no place in a castlevania game...period.

I get that early on Dracula can't fight some of the toughest enemies and he needs to find a way around them. However, I think that about half way through the game I should be drinking their blood. Not so in LOS2, some enemies are as un-killable at the end as they were at the beginning.

Stealth is way too restrictive.

4.0 out of 5 stars The story is completly nuts, but thats a good thing. February 26, 2014
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
You are DRACULA. Never been done. The gameplay is on the lines of God of War, Zelda, Darksiders.....
Its long. I love long games. The story is a bit chaotic, but just pay attention, it wont loose you, but rather draw you in.
Its a very interesting tale, and it gives Dracula more purpose than just being some blood sucking bat morphing killer.
Dracula is more angry than evil I would say, which keeps him in the hero perspective. They actually skip a big chunk of history, the part where Gabriel first becomes Dracula and goes on a psychopath blood drive. The result is, we see the brotherhood storming his castle, but really have no real reason why;none other than that hes Dracula. I would have loved to have had the game where we got to play with him as the ultimate evil badass, and instead of defeating the ultimate bad guy at the end, you defeat the good guy. But that didn't happen here. That's why I say hes more angry than evil, and the story is nuts. But I love it so far.
The action and fighting is really fun. More fluid and connecting than God of War.
Theres a lot to scavenge for. The graphics are great. The upgrade UI is a bit wonky, but you ll get used to it.
The music is the best part. It really sows you into the atmosphere.
If you love deep adventure fighting games as I do, you will love this game. I bought the digital version from psn

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing that "it" factor April 12, 2014
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
For starters, I liked Lord of Shadows 2, but I didn't love it. There was nothing about the game that really annoyed me, but I was always waiting for that missing piece to "pull me in", as so to speak. I don't necessarily agree with all of the criticism that's been aimed at this game, but one overall point has been pretty much unanimous - it's not as good as the first LOS.

Combat - I'll attempt to make an analogy here. How would you feel if you had a brand new sports car, but you weren't allowed to take it on the freeway to see what it could REALLY do? Well, that's how I feel about the combat in LOS 2. There are so many interesting combos and attacks to purchase, but don't expect to be able to use many of them. Unlike the last game, it's a free roaming camera, and I initially thought that was great. However, it'll be used against you. While engaging in battle, you better keep your head on a swivel! You'll be in mid combo, when all of the sudden, someone will come behind you and break up your combat attempt. The other issue is that most of the enemies are heavily armoured, or have some type of protective shield. You'll need to get very creative when attacking some of these enemies, and it gets pretty old. Here's my formula when judging combat: If I look forward to fighting bad guys, that means the combat is pretty fun. If I cringe at the sheer thought of having to fight a room full of enemies, that means there's a problem. With LOS 2, it was the latter. Like I said, you'll be presented with a boatload of fancy combos, but you won't be able to pull off most of them.

Weaponry - I actually enjoyed the weapons, and I felt they were all completely different from each other. The main weapon is the blood whip, and Its formed from Dracula's own blood.
