An okay edition to the Castlevania universe.

The latest installment to the Castlevania series is alright. Lords of Shadow got one part from the previous games right and that would be including the Belmont's back into the series. We take control of a new Belmont named Gaberial who is a member of a religious order bent on protecting the world from evil. His cross happens to be his whip and you can to get different upgrades for your cross to do special tasks. You are also given the ability to control two different kinds of magic: light and dark magic. The other that is nice is the narration from Patrick Stewart. The thing I didn't like were all the boss battles and puzzle solving. I had to set the game on the easiest setting and still took five tries just to beat the boss battles. I absolutely hate the RPG elements in this game. I have to beat every baddie I come across just to get enough experience in order to unlock special attacks. Even after unlocking them I still can't use them properly. Anyway, Lords of Shadow is a good edition, but still not as good as the old Castlevania from the NES game system.

Weak

choosing sides

this game was tight the reflexes were amazing but as i went through the game i was hoping that he would be able to choose a side like choose lycan or vampire i think it would have made the game better like get bitten by the lycan leader then kill him and take his power and his army. it will be more fun if there were games like the movie underworld around go wolves!.
