That Castlevania demo was awesome, but...

It's missing that epic Castlevania music.

Well the music is being composed by the guy who did the first LoS. The music in that game wasn't traditional CV music either but I thought it was great in its own right.

Not a whole lot of music has been heard for this game so far. I am liking this bit in the following vid though:

Yeah, it was great in LoS but that game had a very different feel to it. Since this feels more like a more traditional Castlevania feeling game, the soundtrack would be really cool like that ya know? But hey I can dig it, the game is still really fun. That was a good sound clip, too.

Does it though? I can't say I agree. It's LoS in 2D with more gothic than fantasy elements.

Yeah, it did to me at least. The art style might be like LoS, but I think that's the way Castlevania games are supposed to follow as visuals improve. Dracula X Chronicles on PSP was kinda like that, but I don't remember it well enough to fully justify.

Well, I'm mostly just talking about the gameplay. I agree with you about the artstyle.

Yeah, the gameplay feels like Metroidvania style, as much as I hate that term. In the demo there are a few areas that looked like they required some backtracking and skills. The only part unlike that style- in my opinion- is the slower paced combat, which is awesome. I think it's required, too, since fast action would look kinda weird for this game.
