Default Re: Castlevania - Lords of Shadow

I know this is an old thread but I decided while I wait for skyrim, I would go back and revisit some unfinished games.

I stopped early in chapter II of this game and after reading more reviews, it seems like you have to give it more time to get better and although I still don't think this is nearly as good as GOW III, it is getting better.

The combat is fun and fluid, the environment and set pieces are just gorgeous and they do a good job of balancing the happy cheerful areas with the dark depressing areas. The voice acting is also very good. Picard's narrations before each level sometimes give me chills it's so good.

So yeah. I spoke too soon on this one. It's turning out to be better than I thought and I do feel that the game is a bit underrated compared to some of the other turds out there getting better scores.

I think the main problem is that this particular genre of game has such well acclaimed titles that have done so many things so well that it's hard for a new game to come in and NOT be compared to them. Seeing this game for what it is though, I feel that it's actually turning out to be quite good.
