Curse of the Moon might be on the short side, but the price point of the game makes it a very cost effective use of 10-15 hours. The night might be dark and full of terrors, but Curse of the Moon gives us some very effective tools to take down the evils that lurk within.
”Castlevania”-Hommage oder schon ein Plagiat? Egal! ”Bloodstained” spielt sich hervorragend und fordernd.
Ich freue mich neuerdings so richtig auf Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. Und das nicht, weil Curse of the Moon schlecht wäre. Im Gegenteil, Inti Creates hat hier ein richtig gutes Retro-Castlevania abgeliefert. Auf die Neuinterpretation bin ich jetzt umso mehr gespannt.
The prospect of playing such a lovingly crafted tribute to the vintage heyday of Konami's seemingly abandoned Castlevania series more than makes up for a few out-of-place boss fights and a slightly too punitive death penalty. Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon delivers a brief but effective burst of nostalgia, and thanks to its many creative modifiers it contains enough replay value to engage (and challenge) anyone who pines for gaming's bygone days. And this isn't even the "real" Bloodstained! As appetizers go, it's substantial — nearly satisfying enough to be its own main course.
All that said, Curse of the Moon is a very enjoyable old-school Castlevania homage that’s well worth the price of admission—as long as you have nostalgia for those games. Those of you who have no patience for the first three Castlevania games in particular may want to give Curse a wide berth, but I daresay there are systems in place here that may tickle your fancy.
Bloodstained: Curse Of The Moon is undoubtedly aimed at a very specific audience, and you’ll know if you’re part of that just by looking at the screenshots. If those, combined with words such as these, make your heart sing, however, it’s definitely worth your time. It’s like Castlevania just decided to come soaring back into all our lives, and how can that ever be a bad thing? Exactly.
Even if Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night turns out to become a disappointment (which I doubt), I’m glad that at the very least, I’ll have Curse of the Moon to satiate my Castlevania needs whenever I want to.
Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon brings back the essence of the 8-bit Castlevania games in a masterful way. Even though it's short and has its frustrating moments, long-time fans of the series will find a lot to love here.
