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.

The visuals are great, the controls are exactly what they should be, and there's plenty of satisfying platform action to be had. Bloodstained: Curse of the moon 2 will make fans feel right at home like it's 1989.

Thanks to its somewhat higher difficulty level and a wider cast of characters, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 is an extremely solid game that very slightly edges out its already excellent predecessor, and old-school Castlevania fans will absolutely love it.

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 takes some of the criticisms the first game received to heart. It takes risks, but only some pay off.

Bloodstained : Curse of the Moon 2 is a splendid sequel, that has a lot to offer to players that are in need of some classic Castlevania experience. It offers a good challenge and has some pretty brilliant new ideas and feels like a very good NES game, which is compliment, that is very enjoyable for two players. Question : where do we have to sign for a third episode ?
