Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a Adventuring game available on the PS3. It can be played in Thirdperson Singleplayer modes.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow can be played in a Thirdperson mode. Third Person games view the world from over the right shoulder of the character being controlled. This enables you to see the character you are controlling as well as their surrounds. Although not as immersive as first person, third person games enable more complex moves and interactions with the environment.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.

If I'm waiting for someone out and about, chances are I'm playing my DS. In an age where handheld consoles are openly advertised to all ages, people still give strange looks when they see a 27 year-old playing one in public. Not that I care, I'm more than proud to wear my gamer badge.
Lords Of Shadow shows a steady hand with the Castlevania cannon my friends are so eager to defend. Earning respect and impressing the faithful grants it space to move the franchise into a new era - and we are all a little richer for it.
Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow stands in the gap between Twighlight and God of War, but I was never quite sure which it really wanted to be. Don't get me wrong, me and my mates have all loved playing God of War - and enjoyed having a game that was only suitable for the older teens in the family.
