Lords of Shadow was the first in a line of reboots for the Castelvania franchise. Which was developed by Mercurysteam, a Spain based developer, and published by Konami.

As with many franchise reboots, it really splits the fans of the series. The major shocking change at the end of the first game is that Gabriel Belmont himself willingly became a lord of evil, taking up the moniker Dracul. This major change to the lore brought with it so much potential to give Gabriel one of the most sad, heroic, and martyred stories in the games series. However, he becomes lost to the darkness he tried so hard to vanquish.

The sequel, Lords of Shadow 2, is set sometime after the events of the last game. Where he is yearning for more dark power, must destroy other dark beings to take their power, while defeating those who hunt him as well.

If you’ve been a fan of the series, how do you feel about this plot change? Do you think its refreshing or have they gone too far and tainted the game?
