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.Read more ›
Incorporating ideas from two of the best game franchise of the past 10 years is no bad thing and `Castlevania' works well. The combat is fun and as you progress the moves evolve. I also liked the platforming elements, although sometimes the item collecting level design was a little 16 bit gaming for my liking. The game looks brilliant with lush graphics and come truly epic set pieces, perhaps the most impressive actually appearing towards the start of the game.
There is a stellar voice cast, although Patrick Stewart sounds like he has given up the will to live with some of the awful dialogue. With `Castlevania', `Enslaved' and `Vanquished' all out within weeks of one another the fan of third person action games need not go wanting in Christmas 2010. `Lord of the Shadows' is a fun game that is very lengthy and full of hidden extras. A real bargain of a game that deserves to be praised; despite its minor flaws and lack of true originality.

Why didn't anybody tell me Patrick Stewart was in this?!? A stylish, polished, hack and slash and run and jump and puzzle-em-up.
Again, PATRICK STEWARTS IN IT.
