Lords of Shadow 2 should have been a much shorter game. Still, though the game's stealth sections and drab modern settings represent the worst elements of the three-part saga, the tail end of the game contains the best of every aspect that the series is currently known for. It's the stuff you expect Castlevania to be made of, and after contending with forced stealth gameplay and a weak narrative at the start, it feels good to be home.

Everything I have said so far should have made it clear that Lords of Shadow II is, at best a mediocre game. Yet I enjoyed it. I couldn’t help doing so, and the question is, why? The answer is simple: the cutscenes and the story. It’s the only thing that saves the game from being a complete write-off. If you are like me and you love dramatic, gothic horror stories then this game might be worth picking up (in the future, at a hefty discount). But, for the majority of gamers, Lords of Shadow II is not good enough to warrant the time, effort or money.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is a big budget project gone horribly wrong. The graphics and voice acting are top notch, but everything else is a complete wreck. Environments are boring and repetitive, combat is uninspired, platforming is a joke and the stealth elements are some of the worst ever conceived from a major publisher. It’s a dismal affair through and through and an absolute slog to finish. MercurySteam has publicly stated that they don’t want to be the “Castlevania studio,” and that is abundantly clear in this phoned-in mess of a game.
