        AA game on last gen hardware with poor technical artistry and poor art direction/design with the 2d 3d and overly moving background

        mistakes were made, period, there are plenty of lower budget games that look better. the problems are conceptual, top-down ones, like how the 2d 3d illusion is constantly shattered by miriam contacting surfaces differently

      it's avarage at best and with all the money iga made it could've been much better
      the 2,5D also sucks ass and should've been just 2D (better if soulful pixel animation)

      It's good but ugly graphics killed it. Regardless of what Gankerermin tell you, graphical presentation is the second most important part of a game after the gameplay.

        Cope. It doesn't need to be pixelshit if they were actually able to deliver on this. But they weren't. Game looks like garbage and it got mogged by tons of Metroidvanias from the same decade. Symphony of the Night was a game that stood above the other metroid style games in art. Bloodstained is a game that gets completely overwhelmed in a pile of games that look better than it. The contrast is clear.

    The only thing this game did is reiterate just how much of a slam dunk the 'Soul' system from Aria was. Giving people more slots for more souls was a great idea, too.

    I want to like it, but it's just a SotN clone and everything about it worse. It's graphics are ugly, the game is filled with out of place Kickstarter stuff, and it just doesn't work. Did you wish SotN could just crash every time you played it? What about bugs that hardlock your game and force you to reset and make a new file?

    It got a lot of support and fun free content like the randomizer and new characters, but the performance and bugs break the game and make it nearly unplayable.

        Eh, it's hard for a concept artist to do "Ok, make this look like shit based on our incompetence and Unreal Engine 4 sucking"
        It's just more that it was the actual programmers and in-game artists that couldn't even slightly live up to what the concept artist drew. But that's usually the case in any game. The difference is with kickstarters they publicize it when trying to get you to pay for it.

      Zangetsu mode was so insulting I just uninstalled.
      Zero attempt to change the map or utilize his abilities to unlock parts of the map, doors are just unlocked for no reason, paths open since he doesn't have whatever ability miriam would have used
      No progression or way to customize him he just starts with everything (unless they updated to change that since the release)

        Last time I played it it was still shit, yeah. Even fucking child of light mode was far, far more enjoyable.

    What’s more to be said? When it came out it completely blew expectations by actually being a good game despite the haters and kickstarter expectations.
    The complaints mainly stem from the company taking literally forever to finish the so-called promised DLC, the post-release nerf on a skill (despite being a single player game), and the Switch bugs and framerate (ironically despite being one of the highest selling platforms for it). Also the ungodly bad artstyle. They really should have either chosen 2D or at the very least cel-shading instead of the weird claymation shadows.
    Mostly people are just waiting on info the next game. Unfortunately just like the DLC schedule, it looks like they’re going to take years to make it.

    It's a slightly above average Metroidvania. Or rather, it would be, if it wasn't so ugly. Tons of pixel metroidvanias made that didn't need Kickstarters and meanwhile people paid their hard earned money in advance for this shit. Never finished it mostly off of that.
