Imo, it's good for some mindless fun but it is underwhelming overall. Particularly in the story/writing department.

I disagree, I think the religious Crusade Dark Age element was a great update to the boiler plate Dracula is magic endless resurrection crap that was going on in the 2D games. SoTN is an amazing game but it really has no story to speak of.

In Lord of Shadows, I liked the Tolkeinesque idea of the changing of Eras. Before there had been a society that made the Colossi, and maybe before that was the age of magic that Pan was from. The current Era was the Crusaders trying to fight the plague (in this case monsters, not disease). The game ends in a different era entirely (Modern).

The end game boss is the culmination of the fears of the current era, but in getting there you journey through all the wreckage of days past.
