Pretty much just took everything out and replaced it. Vampires are now Vampires the Redemption. (iirc) And Cain is no longer the master vampire. The abilities are less than what it were, and every is simpler. I don't know the fine details, since I don't really read up on it all that much. I'm only big on the vampire stuff.
Best Buy sucks so bad, I have to Sig it! The customer service were stupid & they lied. Don't Buy from Best Buy
Hmm... well, it's a pretty well established RPG world, and I really don't know too much about it besides the games I've played. While I think the Hunter games are pretty decent, I thought Redemption was quite the awesome game. Felt a lot like Anne Rice's vampires, but even more involved. I was pretty keen to play that Werewolf game someone was developing a while back, but unfortunately it got canned for some reason or the other.

Thats a game I've been meaning to track down for ages, supposed to be very similar to Deus Ex. Considering how thats about the best game ever and my favorite game ever, I've been rather curious about it
I guess it's been said before, but I think this was meant to be a totally different, new franchise for Konami. They just decided to add the "Castlevania" name on it because it happens to deal with creatures of the dark and stuff. So I bet any reference to past Castlevania lore will be just added later.
