Bloodborne is the Castlevania Game We Deserve

Tony Polanco from The Koalition writes:

"After playing Bloodborne for some time, it finally hit me: “Holy shit, this is Castlevania.” I know that may sound odd, but after playing through Mergo’s Loft and especially Cainhurst Castle (which itself is an obvious nod to Castlevania), the Castlevania-ness of the game really started to scream out at me.

Upon this realization, I started thinking about the game as a whole and became even more convinced that this was essentially the Castlevania game fans of the series have been asking for.

Let’s break down some of what made Castlevania… Castlevania, and see how Bloodborne brings those elements forward."

Haven't been able to play Bloodborne yet, but my brother has it so I'm going to give it a try. Nice article!

breakpad1268d ago (Edited 1268d ago ) the Castlevania we deserve and the Devil May Cry we deserve after the DmC abomination, though not flashy as Devil may cry it had a lot of similarities with the gothic world and agile gameplay

Bloodborne is everything they said it is. I never played the Dark Souls games. I love and hate this game equally. I almost sold the game after 2 days because I was so frustrated with it and thought it was a dumb game that was difficult for the sake of being difficult. It all change about 4 hours in and now I can't stop playing it!

...I hate the game still, mind you but it very addictive.

They also said the boss fights plays like the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time only 10 times the challenge and scare factor.

I enjoyed Bloodborne for what it's worth, but I absolutely have no more time to play it now.The Witcher 3 and Batman: Arkham Knight will be what takes up most of my time now. However, I will say this Bloodborne is far better that that Lords of Shadow 2 trash that we got awhile back. Everyone in this genre can learn alot from the developers.

I wouldn't even put the new castlevania on the same level of Bloodborne

Now I think about it the similarities are there

I'm surprised this is the first time I've heard this comparison. I think the difficulty and setting are definitely solid homages. Good job.
