Underwhelming conclusion aside, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 still delivers an experience that fans of the original game or Mirror of Fate will love.

Assassin’s Creed isn’t the only video game franchise that was calling out to get the building set treatment. Mega Bloks has already turned Halo, Call of Duty, Need for Speed, and even World of Warcraft into popular sets, and the number of franchises that would translate well into plastic is near-endless.

It’s still an above-average few hours of content, but it doesn’t even flirt with the greatness that Infinite reached.
The Batman: Arkham series finds itself in a peculiar situation. It’s a licensed superhero series, and Superman 64 and Aquaman: Battle for …
Looking back, the Tom Clancy games have already made a huge impression on me. It’s unclear exactly where the brand is going to go in the future, but I’m extremely excited to come along for the ride, especially with such a talented group of people working on it.
