I'm having a great time with it, it's really fun and challenging. The soundtrack it's awesome too.

Wish there was a demo... I'm just sick of committing to games, because mass media scores them high.. then I buy them & wonder WTF are you di#kheads on about... I want my PS4 to play PS4 capable games... What is the point of me playing a game, that will make me think I'm playing a long lost NES game??? It makes no sense... Why not keep, or rebuy a NES, & NEVER need to update consoles, as being happy with 30yr old crap, is the new new... Fricken joke..

I'd be OK, with the occasional retro inspired title...But, damn, it's every 1.5 titles, that are old as 99yr old man's balls.

I understand where your coming from, but the game pretty much sums up what it plays like by the videos on youtube. Go watch the first level or something; thats pretty much how the game will play. Its basically Castlevania with fun little easter eggs from other hit games thrown in. i bought it and its really good. Very enjoyable.
