Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow takes place at the end of days. The Earth's alliance with the Heavens has been threatened by a dark and malevolent force - the mysterious Lords Of Shadow - darkness reigns the world. Across this shattered land, the souls of the dead wander unable to find peace, whilst creatures of evil roam free wreaking chaos and death upon the living.

Gabriel is a member of the Brotherhood Of Light, an elite group of holy knights who protect and defend the innocent against the supernatural. His beloved wife was brutally murdered by the evil forces of darkness and her soul trapped for eternity. Neither living nor dead she realises the horrific truth of what is at stake and guides Gabriel to his destiny - and hopefully salvation for the world... but at what cost?

Thus, Gabriel must travel the destroyed world, defeating the evil tyrants in order to use their powers to bring balance back to the world. Armed with the versatile Combat Cross - the world's last hope must encounter the three factions of the Lords Of Shadow and end their unholy rule.

4.0 out of 5 stars A proper single player game.. 27 Oct 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It is so refreshing to see a game that has said "no" to multiplayer and really got back to basics.
A nice solid story line, with the odd cliche here and there, but I suppose that is hard to achieve these days when pitting good against evil as its all been done before. However, Catlevania has some good references to myth and story with characters like "pan" and "frankenstien" giving parts of the story a familiarity as you embark on a epic quest across the land. Which will see you into the 20 hour region (as single player games should be, not 5-6 hours like other similar titles)
One let down to the story is the voice acting. Even with actors such as Patrick Stewart and Robert Carlyle the dialogue seems to be a bit flat and without feeling. I wouldnt say the voice acting is bad, I just expected a bit better from the talent behind the mic.

The gameplay is fast paced hack'n'slash adventure much like god of war. The more enemies you kill/puzzles you solve, the more points you earn to buy upgardes for your primary/secondary weapons and magic abilities. There is light and dark magic. Light magic makes your attacks return health points to you with every sucessful strike, dark magic makes your attacks more powerful. Also, you can link together blocks, dodges and successful hits to gain "focus". Whilst in focus every succesful strike will offer up and orb to help refill your magic. This gives the combat a nice mix of tactics as if you are low on health and light magic you really need to get your focus which means slowing down and getting your blocks and dodging perfect. As the game takes you on a large scale adventure you will come across plenty of differnt enemies in all shapes and sizes from little forest goblins to giant titans and everything inbetween.

5.0 out of 5 stars The shizzle! 12 Oct 2010
By bigw
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
To like this game or not to like it is really to be honest- going to be, as always, a matter of opinion. Konami may not have pleased long term fans of the series with open landscapes and lush environments (no real castle environments- well not like the older titles) but what they have done is brave to reinvent the series in such a way that your either going to love this game or hate it.

Graphics

Graphics are crisp and environments are lush- ranging from forests to ice caverns to swamps- there really is a eye candy world on offer here and set your hd tv to full hdmi capability and your doing a little "hell yeah" dance inside- ok well maybe thats just me- but my point is it looks real nice. The voice acting and orchestral score is spot on as well, with dramatic scenes matched superbly with the soundtrack and voice acting from the likes of patrick stewart and robert caryle. To be honest the gameplay flows so well with the cinematic sequences and qte events that you feel really attached to the story and it becomes like a movie that your fully engaged in.

Gameplay

Fans of games like prince of persia, shadow of the colossus will notice here some gameplay elements will have been (ahem) taken and put into this game. You can do one of two things here...You can either let it massivley bother you and say the developer didnt really invent for themselves and should have done this and that.... or you can actually just enjoy the superb mixture of gameplay mechanics that have been created, even if ideas have been borrowed. Just play a game for what is was designed to provide- FUN. And thats what castlevania does- provides loads of it. Fast paced action.

By Pierre!
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Lots of people have called it a God of War set in europe, i haven't played God of war but if its anything like this I'm buying a Playstation. one of the most enjoyable story lines i have played from an Xbox 360 game, with great voice acting and a really cool methodical europe setting (vampire werewolf's etc). The gameplay is very linear and being a man who enjoys open world games this put me off at first with the lack of exploration. but that is not what this game is about. The graphics are insane with a variety of different environments from mountain peaks to bleak sewers and flipping epic woodlands and castles. Sooo much better than the originals and yet it keeps very true to them with original music and such. but thats not important! This game is a good! many hours long but man did it go fast! the Battles are insane! you fight like these huge stone titans in which you have to climb to kill (which is soooo epic!) and the cinematic fight scenes which get you involved with timed button taps are so freaking cool! and they happen all the time! The first level will put you off but play through it to experience one of the best one player action games around. though there are many puzzles which are litterally impossible to figure out so don't feel guilty about getting tips from the walkthrough of the internet. with an awesome story, and epic battles, incredible scenery and challenging but enjoyable puzzles. get it now. so epic. trust.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Game 18 Mar 2012
By Alex L
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
What a great game. Just completed it for the first time, and wow. Brilliant marriage of so many ideas, great action, epic story, brilliantly executed. And long too. A lot of games these days end too soon, but this just keeps coming. Its like Clash of the Titans and Lord of the Rings in one package.

Why didn't I hear more about this game when it came out? Now its available at bargain money its a steal. I could write several paragraphs about how good it is but others have already done so, and I cant be bothered. One of the best games I've played in quite a while though. Will be playing it through on the hard/hardest difficulty next. Looks like there is still plenty more to unlock too if the achievement list is anything to go by.

I heard rumours this game was a God of War Clone. I have never played God of war so I can't comment on that. But as a game in its own right... Fantastic. Read more
