Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is a comfortable return for Koji Igarashi. It doesn't push any boundaries, but it's a fluid, well-crafted labor of love with tons of content and a satisfying core gameplay loop.
Castlevania fans should be very happy with this one, as should the developers, as they succeeded in meeting expectations, which isn’t always feasible in the age of crowdfunding. The game is definitely worth picking up for people who have been looking forward to it and, hopefully, it’ll be the same for players who may not be familiar with the series from which it sprung.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night shows that Koji Igarashi's genius with the invention of the modern Metrovania genre wasn't just a singular event. Through numerous teams working together to bring his vision to life, Bloodstained has become a modern classic for the evergrowing genre.
