Verdict: Recommended after 2.0 hours of playtime.
I played through the early access content (which ended immediately after spoiler-free boss) and I was thoroughly impressed. Between the abilities, the art style, and the gameplay, I felt like this would be a worth successor to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. I’ve always been a huge fan of SotN and it’s been nearly impossible to find another game that lives up to the standard set there. I haven’t gotten back to the new content after the game hit its full release and added in, what I believe to be, the remainder of the game, but I intend to soon and will update my review when I get to it.
