Wot I Think – Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

By Rich Stanton on February 26th, 2014.

In Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 you play as Dracula, who over the course of many tortuous cutscenes is established as one of the most powerful beings in this game’s universe. Phenomenally mighty! Even god’s afraid of this guy!

Then a few hours in you’re told not to step on leaves in case they rustle, and attract some goatman who’ll instakill you via cutscene. It’s the worst stealth section I’ve ever played in anything, ever, and topped off by the fact that immediately afterwards you rip goatman’s face off with no trouble whatsoever. A small part of a huge game this may be, but it amply demonstrates why LOS2 totally sucks.

Satan Vs Dracula: Castlevania – Lords Of Shadow 2 Demo

By Adam Smith on February 12th, 2014.

Palpably Palpatine

The headline contains the seed of the plot for the second Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow game. It sounds like a particularly lurid SyFy movie in the vein of Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, or a ‘History’ Channel miniseries about the true meaning of Stonehenge. Either way, it sounds like a load of cobblers but that’s not to say the notion of thwacking Satan with a blood whip isn’t at least vaguely appealing. Promising exploration, open world shenanigans and ‘a movable camera’, Lords Of Shadow 2 certainly sounds like it has all the mod-cons. I’ll probably have forgotten that it’s actually coming out on PC by the time I finish writing this post but definitive proof has arrived in the shape of a demo, which you can download now.

Castletraileria: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

By Jim Rossignol on November 4th, 2013.


I’ll admit that it feels odd to be posting about Castlevania games coming out on PC, but it’s happening and we just have to be okay with that. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is soon set to materalise from a cloud of bats on our keyboarded shores, and once again brings with it the tale of Dracula fighting through a large, open environment, filled with demons and stuff. But why? What’s his motivation? Well, old toothypegs has been warned about the return of Satan, for some reason, and has to gather his powers so that he can kick Satan’s ass. As you do when you’re warned about the return of Satan.

Now then, where did I leave my powers? They were around here somewhere…

Demon Possibly Weeping: Lords of Shadow 2

By Ben Barrett on August 23rd, 2013.

Oh, videogames. You make it so hard to love you. My undying adoration for oft-derided popular AAA FPSs has been echoed in recent days, but really I’m just a fan of high-octane, huge budget, nicely animated action. From Darksiders to Call of Duty, Bulletstorm to DmC there’s nothing I enjoy more than having my young white male preferences thoroughly exploited. Yet there is a line that must be drawn when something looks so generic, and tries to sell such basic concepts as new and original, that even I stop to frown. Such is the way with the latest Castlevania: Lord of Shadows 2 trailer.

PCVania: Castlevania Lords Of Shadow In Steam Registry

By Cara Ellison on March 18th, 2013.

High stakes
It is the day after St Patrick’s Day. I am so hungover my face feels like it wants to run off down the street. All I want to do is sit here with a cup of coffee and watch Consolevania. What’s this you say? The dudes over at DSOGaming have spotted that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is coming to Steam? Oh praise The God of Games. Let’s just all sit here and have lovely Rab’s Glasgow patois talk about Lament of Innocence on Consolvania as celebration.

Don’t Suck! Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2 On PC

By Craig Pearson on August 17th, 2012.

Red suits you
Sharpen your stakes and, eh, blanch your garlic? Castlevania’s vampire hunting is coming back to the PC. The rebooted action adventure series did well enough on the Xbox and PS3 last year to warrant a sequel, and for some reason Konami have decided to share Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2 on the PC. I’ll bet Dracula has them in his thrall. That Vlad! What will he get up to next?
