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....

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'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

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....

" 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 think they should have gone with the modern day setting, why go back to the style used in the previous title.

Pretty darn epic. Makes me want to buy the first Lord of Shadows game if I get a PS3.

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.

@Skylinespirit Dracula is a villain? He was an antagonsit in the previous games but never a villain. That's so relative... Have you ever read Bram Stocker's Dracula? I doubt you ever read a book in your entire life, to be honest. Lords of Shadow saga tells the story of a man who lost his loved one and was betrayed by God. He was forced to live with the curse of immortality and a constant desire for vengeance. Hatred and Misery was what he could only see. This has a gothic romantic horror pace to it. Please open that soft mind of yours...

@Skylinespirit 

You are an idiot. Did you not read anything about the game? Dracula is a supernatural being and this game is telling his story. You can shape shift into mist, a wolf and other forms if you would actually read about the game you would know that. It pisses me off when people talk crap about a game they know nothing about!

@Skylinespirit We can see that he uses blood magic, flaming fists, magic tornados and a phantom sword. I would say that only the shapeshifting ability is missing, but it's too early to judge.

Woops i got confused between Lords Of Shadow And Dawn Of Sorrow as Dawn Of Sorrow was the last scripted cannon game for castlevania series i got mixed as i saw Lords Of Shadow 2 as i did not play Lords Of Shadow my bad minus that in my previous comment my question still stands amongst the other things said but never the less looks awesome and i will pick up Lords Of Shadow before picking up this bad boy too :) looks awesome

@MISTMAN77 Last Of Us and this game will end this gen with a big bang :).... I don't care what reviewers would say about this game and give it pathetic scores because it doesn't have the "GoW" title on it....it will be absolutely epic...LOS 1 was such a quality game.

@Ryuuken27 - Two timelines in this.  Most of the game takes place in modern day but still with gothic aesthetic.

@1947gamer Its your fault mate...you must suck BIG time at the game....I blew through that guy on normal.

And unlike many other action-adventure games these days....button-smashing won't get you too far in LOS 1....try to use your secondary weapons,maintain distance from your enemy and also get to KNOW your enemy,roll often and block at the right time.

And once again DON'T button-smash..that game wasn't meant to be a button smasher.

@1947gamer Try again I remember that part, its kinda difficult because you are just starting to learn how the combat works, trust me once the game progreses you will get loose in combat, one of the things I like of the game is that it requieres skill with the controller, lately games seem to do everything with a single button so one more reason to get LOS 2

@1947gamer I played and completed the first one, last year,  at the age of 31.

@scarlloty @Skylinespirit  OMG another idiot that can't read is trying to argue with  me about NOTHING! You make no sense, you try to insult me about reading but why is this important?  You failed to follow up on your statement to make it coherent. AntagonIST, wow! trying to use a big word and misspelled it? Congratulations on failing to use a dictionary. Do us all a favor and DON'T attempt to sound intelligent (FAIL) better yet, kill yourself because you suck at life!

@PrinceAlucardX @Skylinespirit  Im the idiot? You cant read! It says clearly I'm disappointed in what I have seen here in THIS VIDEO , I will not bash it but follow the game closely till release. Thanx for the info but you are disrespectful to me over your lack of reading comprehension skills. Its obvious who is the  real idiot between us.

@PrinceAlucardX @Skylinespirit @scarlloty What it tells me is both you and Scarlloty are idiots. I got 27 likes from my comment. Normal "PEOPLE" understand it and agree the video presentation was lacking. You two just want to ride my jock. Go away!

@Skylinespirit @scarlloty  Maybe that should tell you something Skyline lol. As i was saying people are getting mad at you because you dogged the game just from watching a short video. It doesn't matter if you were just  talking about the video or not dude.

@Navardo95 @1947gamer I know I may be a little long in the tooth to be playing games but I have been for years and still enjoy it. It's fun. I think I'll stick to stealth games I have better luck on those and Tomb Raider.

@1947gamer @Navardo95 Oh sorry sir but I think that might be the case....you need to be quick in that battle and of course patient and from what I've been hearing LOS 2 may require more skill :)
