Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

Konami Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
  • Expert Rating


  • Astounding production values, from graphics to music to voice; level structure offers replayability; tons of content; says Castlevania on the box.


  • Says Castlevania on the box, but not on the disc; button-mash heavy combat; basic story and characters; level structure is highly linear; for all its flash, never quite manages to pull you in

Bottom Line

An action-packed update to Konami's influential series, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a gorgeous game brimming with content, but is bogged down by linear level structure and mash-heavy combat.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
