Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 picks up right from the epilogue of the original Lords of Shadow .
Did you enjoy this video?
The thing about LOS was that the game play was not as good as some people expected and few glitches but the story , scenario and characters were incredible, I think gamespot was unfair with its review....I enjoyed the game a lot...the only thing I would like to see is an open world game....
Never played this series. About to :)
*slack jawed ...must have!
As a fan of the Castlvania series since it began I must say that after all these years, Lords of Shadow was a nice change of pace and tone from the staid conformity that the series had fallen into over the years prior to LoS's release. So I, for one ended up greatly enjoying LoS and rather look forward to seeing this game wrap up what was arguably one of the better stories to employ the Castlvania setting.
i love lord of shadows this is the best version for me than the old version because it became so confusing especially the part of lament of innocence WTF! walter crap mathias crap story crap but i love the gameplay there i finished it twice but story ... is crap
I'm honestly disappointed in what I've seen here because it looks like they have strayed far from the roots of the series. Dracula is a "supernatural villain" not Dante and not Kratos. Weapons should be 1/3 of his abilities and that's all they are focusing on. Where is the SHAPE SHIFTING and MAGIC SPELLS that Dracula has been known to use throughout his many incarnations. I know the game is not out yet so I'm not gonna bash them yet. I will follow its development and read the review before I buy it because so far it looks like a Devil May Cry/God of War clone. Wolf, Bat, Mist transformation, Shadow utilization, Seduction or Mind Control are all Dracula's basic abilities that could be used to explore, add depth and a unique feel to this game. If none of these makes the final cut I'm not buying a DMC/GoW clone
So this game has nothing to do with the real Canon Lore of Castlevania because the storyline is about gabriel which he first appeared in the first ps3 game of castlevania which was not connected to the Canon of Castlevania yet its titled (Lords of Shadow 2) when (Lords of Shadow) had nothing to do with him but was evolved around (Soma) which was focused on cannon? (Possible spoiler But not Cannon) Read after this if you like.....I'm aware that gabriel is meant to be a Belmont and is drac himself but in the Cannon series the original Drac is Mathias From Castlevania: Lament Of Innocence when the first belmont (Leon) Swears that the belmont clan hunt him down for his deeds he had done to Leon Belmont? Yet it says (Gabriel Belmont) was born in the 11th century yet so was (Leon Belmont) is Gabriel Belmont, Mathias?
Lord of shadow 2 will be best action game of the year, ive watched the trailer loads of times and I prob will watch it again and again until the game comes out. part 1 was fab
as was the music and im sure part 2 will be even better. I hope we get a date this time form konami.
Watched the trailer about three times now. The game looks epic in every sense of the word. Loved the first one, which was my favourite game of the year, imo even better than GOW 3, which I also loved. I fully agree with some of the comments here; its was very underrated, and went under the radar of a lot of gamer friends of mine. Looking forward to its release, and will probably be my final "big game" before going next-gen....
WE must have it and its one of my favorite games of all time.
" He Who Fights Monsters Should Beware, Lest He Become A Monster Himself
" Hell ya! Like Lords of Shadow this is what Castlevania in 3D is
suppose to be. I cannot wait to see more of this Epic game, Better yet i
cannot wait for it to arrive in my living room. " Break The Curse Of
Immortality " Konami FTW
i love the first part and it was amazing ... hope this one wont let me down
Nice!! Havent gotten far on the first one but im sure as hell gonna beat it before this one comes along :D
I think they should have gone with the modern day setting, why go back to the style used in the previous title.
Holy balls that looks amazing.
KONAMI STHU !! TAKE MY MONEY!!!
Looks brilliant. Loved the first one: it was criminally underrated.Can't wait to play the conclusion !
It looks very interesting, i really this this it was going to be a trilogy it sees that i was wrong
Pretty darn epic. Makes me want to buy the first Lord of Shadows game if I get a PS3.
time to replay the 1st
The videos are impressive but what does the game play look like? I bought the first one enjoyed it until I hit the part in the court yard of a church I believe where you had to fight the monster jump on his back and clobber him.. Even at the easiest skill level I still could not kill the thing. I'm no spring chicken and love to play games. But they all seem to be made for the dexterity of a ten to thirteen year old.
holy shi.... i'm erected!. here i come steam. konami you not be disappointed releasing this on PC. i be the first to buy it :D
WOW i really can't wait ..the first game came out on Xbox360 my brother played it and as i remember the end of the game was either the player choose to wear the mask of God to became a vampire or leave it /destroy it as (Gabriele's wife saying to him "fools hope") my bro choose to leave it and Gabriele remained mortal ..in addaiton, Zobag (sorry i don't remember the name very well) died after he reveal himself to Gabriele as the last Lords of Shadows burned by Satan
i loved the first one \m/
No serious and I do MEAN SERIOUS gamer of some age which I am can make a worthy attempt to make a comment about this masterpiece of a game. One of the last true games of its kind,played on a LAST of its kind monumentary console such as the XBOX 360. KONAMI CONGRATS ,although it took a long time for the sequel......BUT OF COURSE good things come to those who have the patience to wait . Great vision of a game,BUT then KONAMI is not a beginner of a manufacturer but an OLDTIMER who knows its business ,and not from some newcomers who surfaced lately,AND THINK ITS GOD'S GIFT TO THE WORLD!
Part one was a broken game that lacked any identity but I played it just to see the end credits.I always finish my games but the fucking music box annoyed me so much I abandoned it.And now he is a Vampire....I liked it for the most part but it was nothing special.I kinda don't want to play part 2 because i really don't care for the story at all.When you don't care for the main protagonist the game is just falls flat no mater how the visuals look great.
That was a well put together trailer.
jesus!!! that has to be one of the best games trailers ive seen
W00T!! It coming to PC...
Amazing.. I hope that Mercury steam will continue providing Castlevania games, I just loved the first one and this one looks awesome. I can't wait
Its amazing really how they can create such visual marvels on old hardware....Mercury Engine is one of the best engines I've ever seen :))
If you didn't play the first one then you better stop watching the trailer....especially PC gamers.
I love how big PC logo appears in the end of the trailer .
I can't wait to buy this masterpiece on my PS3 :))))....The first one was absolutely brilliant with a good story,fantastic music,rich environments and an epic campaign length.Just...can't...wait.
dude I just came
lord of shadow was awesome, looking forward to it
damn gotta go buy the first one ASAP
Why is the video not loading for me? 0_o
Please don't be God of War....
I still can't get out of that stupid room in the first game where you have to manipulate electrically conductive posts.
is this going to be PC day 1 release ?
Easily one of my most anticipated titles this year. Mercury Steam has done exceptional job with the franchise in my opinion.
Really looking forward to this game. I'll admit, I was skeptical about the first LOS but it was quite good, not exactly great, but very solid and with one of the most memorable endings/epilogues yet. I've been wanting to play the sequel ever since that epilogue. Shame that they're focusing so much on the past than on the contemporary setting of the epilogue... Was really curious about a modern-day Castlevania...
I don't really like the idea of vengeance cos it's like a stupid virus and it had spread to all game's and I can't name how many games was just about vengeance, i mean can't the directors think of other reasons for their characters any more, despite of that, this new LOS looks really promising.
Remind me of Kain, seeking for blood and vengeance!
An no loading times, just like Soul Reaver on the old good Playstation.
This trailer felt too long :/
