Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow takes place at the end of days. The Earth's alliance with the Heavens has been threatened by a dark and malevolent force - the mysterious Lords Of Shadow - darkness reigns the world. Across this shattered land, the souls of the dead wander unable to find peace, whilst creatures of evil roam free wreaking chaos and death upon the living.
Gabriel is a member of the Brotherhood Of Light, an elite group of holy knights who protect and defend the innocent against the supernatural. His beloved wife was brutally murdered by the evil forces of darkness and her soul trapped for eternity. Neither living nor dead she realises the horrific truth of what is at stake and guides Gabriel to his destiny - and hopefully salvation for the world... but at what cost?
Thus, Gabriel must travel the destroyed world, defeating the evil tyrants in order to use their powers to bring balance back to the world. Armed with the versatile Combat Cross - the world's last hope must encounter the three factions of the Lords Of Shadow and end their unholy rule.

The game is really good, I'm very glad I bought it!
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a very good game, and I can't wait for Lords of Shadow 2!
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is one of the best in its category. A must buy!
The graphics and sounds are stunning. Challenging battle combos, very entertaining! I am very happy that I played it and I would recommend to anyone.
A wonderful game from Mercury Steam that gathers the best things of every genre. Action, exploration, puzzles, thriller, drama, and even beauty from the very evil. All of them in one game. The artist's work is simply delicious, and will surprise you in every chapter of the game. The combat system is just awesome and reminds the good old N64 brother. Just one more thing to say, if you have doubts on buying it. Forget about them, as soon as you watch some gameplays, the one and only thing you will do is this: eat your nails.
The pros start from astounding graphics, which fully utilize the PS3 GPU to a slightly renewed gameplay that focus on linear levels and pre-rendered cameras. The cons are that the camera and the gameplay aren't really up to the fast-paced action, and it could take a while to get used to it. Story-wise, the game is up to the Castlevania franchise: you'll be able to find all the old enemies as well as new surprising adversaries. If you like third-person action games, especially those with a gothic-fantasy atmosphere, the game could be a good choice for your collection. But the difficulty and the tricky movements could be an hindrance to most. The best thing is to try a demo and then decide whether to buy it or not at the price offered here, which more than good for this kind of game.
The atmosphere isn't as dark and gloomy as expected, but it's a great game. The bright and green landscapes alternate with dead forests, the dark, looming castle, and more... The game play is fluent and solid, combos always look new. Rather than getting boring levels with experience points, you get cool new animations. The basis of these combos is always the combat cross, your weapon. It looks a lot like the whip you get in other Castlevania games, and it's well thought out. The boss fights are great, every boss will throw something different at you, and they sometimes require as much thinking as the puzzles. The storyline was great, and kept me awake until the early hours of the morning. I can recommend this one to every fan of action-based games (similar to the God of War series, which is my only issue with is game), I'm sure you will enjoy!
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a deep product from the point of view of the dynamics. The game offers a wide variety of combat and is much more technical than God of War, much longer, and incredibly rich in secondary activities with plenty of secrets to discover. A game to play and play again!
