The soundtrack went from iconic to....background music composed by a hack. Simon is a scottish man with speech problems, the game has framerate issues, the bosses are meh by Castlevania standards, aaaannnnd.........QTE. Completely phoned in QTE that does not do anything in terms of gameplay except to trick people into thinking they're playing GoW.


It's just "reduce boss health to zero and walk up to press R"(because you can't just kill him!) or "get caught by boss and press X in the next 5 seconds to not take damage"

I thought the demo was okay.

Not a great game, let alone a good Castlevania, but on its own merit it's something I'd buy, I think.

I'd consider buying it for $20 or less. Not a cent more, though.

Yeah, at $20 I can see myself paying for it. Really, it's not -awful- and I think it gets more hate from us for what it isn't and not for what it is.

As a video game, it's okay. It's basically a 2D God of War, though that may be overselling the combat.

As a Castlevania game, it's bad.
