Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – PC Performance Analysis

Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2

When Konami announced that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow would be coming to the PC, we were a bit worried. Although we were pretty sure that an average PC could handle this title, we were not certain whether Konami would drop the ball with this port. Yes, we feared that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow PC would be identical to Dark Souls PC (different development studios and publishers, but still). Thankfully, we are happy to report that not only does the PC version look great, it is also running remarkably amazing, is GPU bound, runs flawlessly on dual-core systems, and has proper keyboard on-screen indications (provided you’re using that control scheme). In short, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow looks and runs amazing on the PC, making it the definitive version of Konami’s title. Continue reading Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – PC Performance Analysis
