Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 - Overview video

If the Castlevania series has taught us one thing, it's that Dracula might not be as all-powerful as he seems.

It's a concept that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 leans into, albeit selectively. Don't get me wrong: Dracula's not weak by any stretch of the imagination. He's powerful enough to put the fear of God into ... well, the Devil. But when he encounters a dude with a big gun, his only means of survival is to turn into a bunch of rats? The hierarchy of power in this world is awfully confusing.

In today's Overview, Phil walks me through one of the opening sections of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, which includes one of the Chu Chu Rocket-esque segments referenced above. Watch as we sneak through a factory, defeat a boss and uncover the first Chaos Emerald, thwarting both Dr. Robotnik and Satan in one fell swoop.
