This game was totally under rated, the mechanics on it are above average...it reminds me of god of war and the graphics are great especially on a good HDTV or monitor. The continuing story of Gabriel Belmont isnt as good as the first, i say the story needs work. But the action is fantasic! The blood is fantasic! The raw gore is FANTASTIC!!! Only thing is if you havent played the first game, you will be a little lost, so i advice you to play the first then hit this game hard! Its a great sequal. Oh yeah....dnt expect much at the end. Lol ^~^
Lords of Shadow 1 was a classic in the league with Symphony of the Night. This game while very good, didn't quite make it. The plot was pretty good throughout. The change in the classic Castlevania story line was done pretty well. Gameplay is similar to LOS1 so that was fun. It felt like the end of the game was rushed, and the last battle, and ending weren't very satisfying. The environment was not quite as amazing as LOS1 either. Still a good game, fun to play, and good story. Rent it.
