If you turn a blind eye to frustrating stealth and puzzle section of this game, you might find a decent action game with decent story.

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.

Sadly, enemy design and the fights themselves aren't up to much, often requiring the same tactics over and over to defeat your foes. Each seems to ascribe to one of two default modes: turtle or rush, and despite your offensive options there's not much joy in fighting them. Figuring out your opponents is the heart of any combat game, but here they're neither smart enough to pose an interesting challenge nor dumb or numerous enough to make you feel like, well, Dracula.
