Does Lords of Shadow 2 live up to its predecessor, or does Dracula’s latest foray simply suck?
PROS
Terrific combat, Great voice acting, Exquisitely detailed environments, Outstanding score, Free camera
CONS
Stealth gameplay can get tedious, Some frustrating sections
VERDICT
Despite its mixed reviews, and dramatic change tonally from the first game, with the developers trying a number of new things this time around, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is still a very good game whose highs supersede its lows.
