Satan Vs Dracula: Castlevania - Lords Of Shadow 2 Demo

Blood will have blood

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.

This trailer demonstrates many of the things that won't be happening when you're actually playing the game.

Vampires are so melodramatic.

I used to like Castlevania games until I accidentally played the Nintendo 64 release. I've never been able to look at them the same way since. Not when they're 3D at any rate.
