Completely rebooting the Castlevania franchise, Lords of Shadow takes the series back to older times, with enigmatic whip-wielders and classic monsters of the night. While not the first Castlevania title to go 3D, Lords of Shadow achieves the style of past games in the series, with whip-based combat and heavy platforming. Throw in some boss battles with impossibly large demons and giants, and Lords of Shadow starts to feel like a classic adventure. Man-eating spiders, goblins, vampires, and many more creatures stand between Gabriel and his prize, and the journey to the end kicks off an interesting twist for the series as a whole.
