Lords of Shadow 2 may have gained an open world, but a poor story, uninteresting enemies, and a bland cast of characters came with it. Combat might be improved, but forced stealth sections cause nothing but dismay and frustration. The end result is something that doesn’t come near the level of overall quality found in the original Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

It’s just so hard to keep playing Lords of Shadow 2. Lords of Shadow 1 suffered from feeling like a God of War clone with poor platforming. Lords of Shadow 2, on the other hand, no longer feels like a clone. It just feels like a generic action game. It has a story you don’t care about, a mashy combat system, and generic enemies and locales. The only good thing about this game is its voice acting, but even Robert Carlyle can’t save this one.

Whether you’re summoning swarms of bats, morphing into a sewer-scuttling rat, or executing Satan’s beasts with a range of devilish moves before you squeeze every drop of blood out of their beating hearts, being Dracula is cool and it’s fair to say that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 delivers an entertaining campaign that is hard to put down once you start. Quite simply, this is the most fun we’ve had killing monsters since carving up freaks with God of War III’s Blade of Exile.
