HNN Staffer Stephanie Shamblin Gray had the chance to demo Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 at SDCC on Thursday. Have a look at some screens of th edemo and her thoughts below.
We had the opportunity to spend some time at the Konami gaming suite getting a special hands-on demo of the upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. In this game, fans will get to play as Dracula and uncover the conclusion of the Lords of Shadow saga. The demo looked stunning and played smoothly. A variety of weapons are available, including the “Void Sword” to steal your enemies life. A favorite, of course, is the ability to drink the blood of your enemies. If you think button-mashing will work as a strategy, think again. Using your defenses is key, and climbing and jumping is a must. The visuals will bring in the horror fans, and gameplay seems to have enough variety to keep fans playing. We look forward to seeing more from this title.
