Review: Bloodstained – Curse of the Moon 2

By now, everyone has heard of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. I posted a review for the modern day Castlevania clone a little over a year ago. And despite a somewhat rough launch, the game was largely successful. Like many, I fully expected that sooner of later we’d receive news of a Bloodstained sequel. Much to my surprise, the developers...

Review: Bloodstained – Ritual of the Night

This is a game review that I’ve been waiting almost four years to write. As a lifelong fan of Castlevania, I still remember the excitement I felt when Koji Igarashi (former developer of Castlevania) announced he was creating his own gaming studio and his first project was going to be none other than a spiritual successor to the Castlevania series....

Castlevania Anniversary Collection

These days, it seems that retro games are all the rage. The last few years have seen countless collections and remasters of classic gaming titles. For example, I recently reviewed the SEGA AGES version of Phantasy Star, a modern presentation of an 80’s-era RPG.

To date, the only real anime show that I’ve actually found enjoyable has been Sword Art...

Review: Castlevania Judgment

Finally, I am proud to present my review for the last official title in the original Castlevania timeline; Castlevania Judgment. This game is a radical departure from the anything seen in the series thus far. What we have here, is a 3D fighter using traditional Castlevania characters. The storyline for this title is pretty weak. It seems that an evil...

Review: Castlevania Adventure ReBirth

This is a commonly overlooked title in the Castlevania archives. The Adventure ReBirth is a WiiWare¬†download available for purchase through the Wii Shop. It is a modern day remake of the original Castlevania Adventure for the Game Boy. However, other than sharing the name and the lead character there’s not much of a resemblance. This title is sort of a...
