  • First Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 And Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Review Score Out

    The latest issue of GameInformer Magazine carries first review of some of the big release of February 2014, "Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Lightning Return: Final Fantasy XIII and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze".

    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical FreezeThe publication awarded Castlevania: Lords of Shadow an average review score of 6, and Lightning Return: FFXIII got 7. Wii U exclusive was the only title that managed to receive a near perfect review score of 9.25.

    We have few important points about all these games from GameInformer review. Read them all below.

    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

    • Claims nearly every attempt this game makes to "stray from its fundamental kill room formula ends in failure".
    • Reviewer loved the first game, said "Unfortunately this sequel is as fresh as a whiff of garlic breath".
    • Good new combat mechanics but enemies stun locking you out of combos from across the map while you fight with the camera.
    • Reviewer hates the modern setting, its filled with generic alley ways, factory levels.
    • Says there was one stealth segment that was the worst of its class. The more traditional Castlevania settings are better.
    • Says there is one great level with the toy maker, outside of that most of the game is just ground previously covered in the first game.
    • "This shambling monstrosity is composed of chunks from other, better games"

    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze:

    • Seems like generic worlds, ice, beach, jungle but "the variety is amazing"
    • Ride minecarts through saw mills, dash through a forest with a raging fire, etc.
    • Great difficulty balance, bonus stages are a bit ridiculous in difficulty though that is expected.
    • Water levels return, are very fun, better to control with analog stick than d-pad. For some reason you have to access the menu to pick one or the other.
    • Dixie and Cranky add new moves that work best to reach certain collectibles or specific platforming challenges. Rotating barrels allow you to select the best Kong for the job.
    • "Local Co-op is as much a mixed bag as the first installment."
    • 6 worlds instead of 8 in the last game. But each level is larger. Reviewer says it rather have a smaller collection of the best levels Retro can make than a more bloated game with less quality levels and that is exactly what this game does.

    Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

    • Worst of the Lightning series but not a bad game.
    • Real time combat makes battles feel more about skill than feel automated.
    • Game has easy and normal difficulty choices, cant change once you start the game. Its a hard game so the reviewer says to be afraid to choose easy.
    • That said the reviewer states the challenge of normal makes the battles thrilling.Says there is flexibility in the combat and battles are exciting.
    • Biggest change is the time system, all you have is 13 days, has its drawbacks.
    • Forces you to plan your time accordingly which can lead to entertaining time management.
    • Doesn't allow the time to delve into certain gameplay systems, like killing a species of monsters off for great loot. That needs lots of grinding which you cant do much of.
    • Many side quests are poor dull fetch quests that have annoying restrictions like only happening in a certain time of day.
    • You are forced to do quests cause that is how you level up. Cant choose how you level up each quest assigns the upgrades.
    • Fighting still matters as it gets you money and EP used for spells.
    • Calls the story a joke, feels like a non-canon spinoff that would be in a comic
    • Says this game swapped out systems that worked in past games for some that don't hit the same high notes.
