Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2
Top Critic Average
Swapping between your heroes as you tackle different tasks is fun, but the slow action and rigid platforming belong in the past
The classic Castlevania homage is back, and it brings Bloodstained's delightful sense of weirdness with it.
Inti Creates could've done "more of the same" and called it a day, but the new characters lend Curse of the Moon 2 a ton of flexibility, the co-op support is commendable, and the subtle refinements can be found far and wide if you go back to play the original game after spending a weekend with the sequel.
Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 might annoy those who find this continuous use of 8-bit style graphics redundant. If it may appear pimply and technically "comfortable" in development, in reality the pillars that decree a good video game are always the same. Inti Create has created an intriguing action platformer with excellent gameplay potential. With an unexpected endgame for such a "small" title, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 brings with it the legacy of a gameplay of yesteryear, endowed with a rhythm and difficulty not for everyone, but with an internal consistency and a playful force worthy of a triple A.

While this won't keep you playing for much more than 10 hours, it's still a fantastic throwback to classic Castlevania that oldschool action platformer fans will love.
