Game: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (PS3)

What's it about? A Castlevania game that’s kind of not a Castlevania game…it’s a *shocked face* reboot. This one follows the story of Gabriel who’s on a quest to defeat the Lords of Shadow because his wife has been killed and he’s not happy and wants her back…blah love story blah romance blah. Take on his role and battle all kinds of demons, monsters and things that go bump in the night in this spooky action-adventure game.

What’s it like? The graphics are amazing, truly beautiful, the atmosphere is pretty dark and well the voice acting is awesome…it has Rush in it…I mean Robert Carlyle! The controls are responsive…though I keep dying…it’s a pretty great game. Some of the uber monsters you think are going to be really complex to kill and you spend ages trying to figure out how to defeat them…turn out to be something really simple which you’ve over analysed ugh. I think I would prefer it if there were less major baddies and lots of smaller ones you can tackle on the journey. It can get a bit annoying where you walk for a while…collect some stuff/do something and oh another cut scene and what a surprise another big baddie to fight but hey it is enjoyable. If you like lycanthropes, vampires, demons and all manner of supernatural creatures…and don’t mind killing these poor defenceless beings then look it up and give it a whirl.
