Summary

A content-crammed, entertaining action adventure with a brilliant combat system, LOTS 2 is a fitting tribute to what may be MercurySteam's Castlevania curtain-call.

We like

  • So much gameplay variation that it feels like an epic adventure
  • Intuitive and in-depth combat system
  • Rewarding open-world arena that begs to be explored

We dislike

  • Dated-looking, slightly complicated skills menu could have been simplified and made to look more modern
  • Some repetitive stealth play

For those who played the first ...
