Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
was the first 3D Castlevania
game to actually be good. Developer MercurySteam created a fun, violent action game that featured some of the best storytelling in the entire series, and it all paid off due to the game's phenomenal ending. While it never became the successful spin-off series that fans hope it would be, Lords of Shadow
can still be remembered as a mighty good time, and more tragically a tale of what could've been.
