Check out one of the boss fights
The Toymaker was first introduced in Mirror of Fate, and he returns for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. Dracula is looking for the Mirror of Fate, and when the Toymaker is about to present one clue pointing to the mirror he gets floor molested and turned into a big jerky boss fight.
I'm actually really looking forward to Lords of Shadow 2, it's just something about this boss fight that kind of turned me off. I think it's the lack of music. What's up with that? Is Konami worried about getting flagged some weasel claimer?
