Castlevania Anniversary Collection is a disappointing reunion for some of gaming's greatest titles (and a couple of its worst). New players will love the vampire-killing action on offer, but returning fans won't find anything to tempt them back.

The Death of Erin Myers is short, but it's as long as it needs to be. Its bleak, miserable tone might be too much for some, and its puzzles aren't head-scratchers. Still, it's atmospherically sound and certainly enjoyable enough to pass the two hours it needs to tell its story.

8 / 10.0 - DUSK

Rote, uninteresting and devoid of narrative pathos, Smoke and Sacrifice never compels or engages enough to offer more than a few moments of potential.

8.5 / 10.0 - Unworthy
May 29, 2018

Through a mixture of punishing, satisfying combat, rewarding exploration and rich visual design, Unworthy manages to overcome its minor flaws (and the stern glare of its parent genres) to deliver a deep, memorable experience for fans of hardcore action RPGs.
