Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night in Games Posted June 21 I honestly think the game is pretty polished for a Kickstarter game. Graphics are relatively good, combat is pretty much a copy-paste out of almost any side scroller (not a bad thing, don't fix what's not broke), menu system is a little clunky but not something I can bitch about (I'm used to more convoluted systems), and honestly it looks rather fun compared to Castlevania (I never got into Castlevania, couldn't bring myself to enjoy it. Odd for me because I actually like side scrolling games (Strider and Strider 2 being my absolute favorites)). The only real gripe I have with it is how unbalanced the weapons seem. I honestly thought the Rapier looked to be the best weapon, fast attack with moderate damage. Get off more hits before the enemy can hit you (more risk but it honestly seemed to pay off for him in the video). They were trying to show all the weapons in the video, hence why he didn't use it that much. Plus it seemed like he preferred the Rapier over everything else most likely for the same reasons I think it's the best weapon.
