Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon could easily have ended up as a promotional novelty to tide players over until the release of Ritual of the Night, but thankfully this is not the case. Instead, Inti Creates has crafted a compelling and enjoyable title featuring everything that made the 8-bit Castlevania titles so create. It does veer dangerously close to the Castlevania license at times, but considering how Konami is doing nothing with the series, fans certainly won’t mind.
Gameplay: As close as you can get to the 8-bit Castlevania titles.
Graphics: Captures the 8-bit style perfectly.
Sound: Great, but not quite as memorable as the classic Castlevania tunes
