I was having a hard time about where to start with this particular review, then I decided I would open up about reboots. Reboots are a tricky thing to tackle, everyone’s opinion of a reboot is going to be different. Some people will say that the reboot was needed, and some will think the overall franchise didn’t need to be changed. For example, I remember seeing how many people got so angry about how the recent Tomb Raider game was going to look and play. I really loved the reboot to the series, and I honestly don’t agree with people saying that the franchise was doing fine before the reboot. I would argue that while some of the recent reboots are flawed in one way or another, they have been, for the most part, better games. In my opinion, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was a great reboot-whether they intended it to be a Castlevania game originally or not. I thought it had a better story, a more likable character, and the combat was more satisfying. It might have had some issues with a fixed camera, and, for me, not enough titan fights, but it was one of my favorite games of 2010. The midquel game, Mirror of Fate definitely had more issues, but it had its own charm even with the flaws that came with it. So, where do I stand with Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2? So far, reviews have been mixed. There has been a mostly positive reception to the game, but people seem more split about this game than the first one. What do I think of this game? Well, read on to find out. By the way, minor spoiler warning for those who haven’t played the game.
