Compare & Contrast: Bloodborne and Nightmare Creatures

In regards to the latest Bloodborne game play/trailer footage, D-Pad writes a compare and contrast article between Bloodborne and Nightmare Creatures.

The story is too old to be commented.

Interesting comparison! Those two games also remind of the Legacy of Kain series for some reason.

I Remember nightmare creatures, nothing like playing nightmare creatures at night on the N64. Oh the good ol' days

I liked the article in general. However, one statement that I feel the need to comment on is this: "While moving about was satisfying enough, attacking almost always felt sticky and needlessly slow. I get that it was all part of the challenge and entices a more defensive strategy rather than Hack N’ Slash, but fighting creatures in Dark Souls was uncomfortable as a gamer."

~ I disagree on this. The combat was not needlessly slow in DeSo and DaSo, it was part of the equipment encumbrance system. I strongly believe that From Software pulled this off better than most action-adventure RPGs out there (Skyrim comes to mind).

Anyway, it was still a good read. I never had the chance to play Nightmare Creatures though my brother had a copy back in the day. I hope they reboot the series.

I knew I wasn't the only one who remembered Nightmare Creatures after seeing the trailer for Bloodborne.
