Introduction, test setup, requirements

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is a much lauded action title which originally released on consoles in 2010. Konami, perhaps seeing the success following the belated release of Dark Souls on PC, has ported the game over at long last.

The game comes out in a few weeks; if you're curious on how it fares in terms of PC features and performance, read on for our report based on the Steam demo.
