Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2’s reviews embargo has now lifted and opinions are coming out of the ears of those who’ve played MercurySteam’s last effort in the series as it prepares to go off into the sunset.

But how does the game hold up? Good thing you have this, then. First, watch the opening thirty minutes of the game below (it’s actually more or less the same as the demo runthrough, but with an added few minutes and this actually being on an Xbox 360 than PlayStation 3). I’m still just as rubbish as I am in the demo, if not moreso, though. Get it beneath.

But that’s, of course, not all. There’ll be a Cullen Plays LIVE stream happening on the game from 5pm GMT this evening, so stay tuned for that.

Oh my word, look at this! An embedded livestream player! And it’s not Twitch, it’s YouTube! I’ve actually had YT’s livestream capability enabled for a few weeks (why, I have no idea, but I’m going with it for now until it goes public or YT realise their mistake) but been working out the kinks on it and I think it’s sorted. God willing. Anyways, livestream from 5pm tonight. On YouTube! Come watch!

Disclosure: This is based on a final Xbox 360 retail copy of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, provided by Konami. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 releases in Europe on Friday and in the US today on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
