+great intro (first 15 mins of game)
+welcome addition of Light & Chaos as weapons and not just enhancements
+Highly detailed and gorgeous environments
+Impressive animation
+Very polished & well optimized game
+Fluid combat
-Stealth portions fall flat
-Plot-wise, only 2 interesting things occur...or really just one now that I think about it..and it wasn't even really a twist, just a revelation.
-last 1/4 of game felt rush
-last boss was extremely underwhelming in difficulty, presentation, and everything else really.
-Urban environment, though detailed, seemed so out of place
-lacked environment variety
-transition phase (w/ wolf & chupacabras) are annoying and uneccessary
-overall plot felt extremely weak
-A quarter of the game involved a fetch quest for almost no apparent reason
-Definitely set up to cash in on DLC
-its no TITANFALL


Verdict:
Rent it


Special tid-bit from B_B: As soon as I beat the game, I went back to LoS1 and played that for 3 hours straight. Got through 3 chapters and was blown away by the environments. Combat didn't feel as fluid as LoS2 and time blocks are ALOT easier in LoS1 but LoS 1 had substance. It was AAA in every way...plot, gameplay, presentation, etc...

Another unnecessary sequel imo

Yea you're right. I retract my last statement, buy Castlevania on sale later. TC is still indeed a buffoon.
