Lords Of Shadow Gameplay Shows Platforming & Puzzles
When a game apparently takes cues from the likes of God of War III and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, you just have to be intrigued.
This is no less than 20 minutes of footage from Castlevania: Lords of Shadow; the play time takes place in a clock tower and starts with some familiar platforming elements. There's timing and skill involved, and there are a few puzzles with which to contend, too. Gabriel is about as nimble as any Castlevania hero has ever been; able to clamber along ledges and leap about quickly.
That last section involving the electrical wall gives us nightmarish flashbacks to that rotating tower of spikes in Hades towards the end of God of War II, but that's okay. Practice makes perfect and all that. It's difficult to get an idea of the game's graphical quality but in situations like this, try to spot well-lighted parts of the screen. When you do that, you can see a large amount of detail and impressive design, so here's hoping...
Lords of Shadow should be out this October.
