Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition is the complete edition of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, a dark and vivid new re-imagining of the Castlevania mythology. It is the end of days and ungodly powers isolate the Earth. The world's alliance with the heavens has been threatened by a dark and malevolent force - the mysterious Lords of Shadow. Across this shattered land, the souls of the dead wander unable to find peace, whilst creatures of evil wreak chaos and death upon the living.
Gabriel Belmont is a member of the Brotherhood of Light, an elite group of holy knights who protect and defend the innocent against the supernatural. His beloved wife was brutally murdered by the evil forces of darkness and her soul trapped for eternity. Neither living nor dead she realizes the horrific truth of what is at stake and guides Gabriel to his destiny and hopefully salvation for the world.
Reverie – DLC
Reverie marks a return to the game’s climactic castle setting as Gabriel seeks to assist the recently-slain vampire Queen’s hand maiden. The download spans three stages, and offers a breath-taking twist to the game’s plot
Resurrection – DLC
Resurrection, which itself follows on from the completed Reverie, lays bare the fate of both Gabriel and the Belmont clan. Gabriel must battle an evil demon known only as ‘The Forgotten One’ that has broken loose of its ancient chains.
These new DLC levels provides a stunning finale to KONAMI’s epic tale of death, betrayal and redemption – with ‘The Forgotten One’ intent on destroying mankind, and only Gabriel standing between it and its goal...

It's another hack and slash game just like God of War and many others, with the twist being your weapon is a whip, and it's used to its full potential just like it was back in the good old days of Super Castlevania IV. Graphics are beautiful, soundtrack is simply amazing, gameplay is a lot of fun and gory, and story, while little little shallow and played out by other games, is also good - there is something special about it, but this might be because of incredible voiceover work. Basically, this game is a mix of Casltevania (lore, atmosphere, whip), God of War (fighting system) and Shadow of the Colossus (huge bosses that you have to climb and hit their weak point) and it's actually perfect. As for DLCs, those are not bad and actually build up a sequel pretty good and give additional couple of hours. Overall, great game and if you like h'n's genre, you definitely should pick this up.
This is a reinvention of Castlevania in the mould of God of war. There's a focus on brutal combat and cinematic setpieces. It works well for the most part. I really enjoyed taking down mythical creatures and exploring this mythical world. The game drags on a bit too long though, and starts to get repetitive.It is a blast otherwise though.
