4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of bite, 3 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Bottom line....this is a very enjoyable romp that completes the Lords of shadow series. I have read many negative reviews so far and am somewhat puzzled by them. I adored the first LOS game and I enjoyed this game just as much.

One point I will make in regards to the combat: it is still brutal and satisfying. Mess up, fail to dodge or counter at the precise moment and you are going to suffer. That was a gripe I had over the first game....no matter how good you were some enemy attacks would break your combo, despite the fact they should have been pushed back or stunned.

Well, being Dracula has it's perks and eventually you get an ability that allows you to dodge pretty much any attack. This ensures that your combo attacks are not abruptly broken by the tougher enemies. Very important for the later game when magical attacks are used frequently.

Also, you can now carry healing potions and a few other items that can aid you in combat. Again, these help later game if you are struggling with the change in enemies.

This is an essential purchase for Lords of shadow fans. Prior to release I played LOS and then Mirror of fate just to freshen my memory on the story.
