Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Is Filled With Surprises
That’s what you, as the player, wants to hear, right? You don’t want the developer to come out and say that the game is exactly what you’re expecting, nothing more and nothing less. However, if they’re of Amish descent they may see that as a good thing because such folk don’t much like surprises.
That’s not us though, we crave excitement.

So when the producer of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 says that the game is filled with surprises and will “keep players guessing right till the very end,” he’s saying exactly what you want to hear. It is reassuring nonetheless.
This sequel is also the first game in the series that will let players take control of Dracula.
Speaking about Dracula’s portrayal in Lords of Shadow 2, producer Dave Cox has revealed in a recent interview with GameSpot that the character as “much darker than in the first game”.
“We’re taking a few risks with the character, the world, and the universe. I think when people are playing [Lords of Shadow 2], there will be a lot of surprises there. We like surprising people. With this game, we tried to deliver something that I think will keep players guessing right till the very end.” Cox said.
Cox highlighted the opening sequence of the game wherein players prey on an innocent family as Dracula.
“When we were developing the first game, I think there was a certain fear in the team about pushing things too far. It was already quite a radical departure from the previous [Castlevania] games… but then it came out and did so well. I think for Lords of Shadow 2 we felt a bit more confident and didn’t have that fear.”
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 launches on February 25 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
