MercurySteam says this will be the final game in the Lords Of Shadow saga, and on the evidence of this cluttered, bloated and forgettable mess, it’s just as well.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 could easily be a better game if some things were simply removed. Still, despite the unnecessary stealth sequences and other roadblocks, it truly does get better over the course of its 15 to 20 hours. It isn't a perfect modernization of all we love about Castlevania, but it certainly feels like a proper part of the bloodline. Diverse, connected environments, creepy characters, and fantastic boss designs speak to a journey that resonates stronger than the plot itself.

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.
