And yet, when taken for what it is, Castlevania Requiem is a functional and acceptable port of two legendary titles. It provides both games to players in a way that is entertaining and satisfying, regardless of whether you've played it a million times or want to finally see what all the fuss is about over two decades later.
Even with these flaws though, Warriors Orochi 4 is still a fun game. It serves its purpose and delivers on what it advertises, giving players a power fantasy experience where they can tear through waves of enemies with the touch of a button. It's an enjoyable Musou title which will keep fans entertained, and takes some small steps forward that future installments could use to great effect.
There was a lot riding on Mega Man 11, but it rises to the occasion in almost every regard. It's a near perfect modern representation of the series, and for anyone who has ever had even a passing interest in the series, it's an entry they won't want to miss.
It's frustrating that Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker isn't better, because the elements it needs to be a great game are all there. The modes on display show the game can be fun, and with a bit more added in, there'd be more of a reason to stick with the title.
