Castlevania Mirror of Fate was pretty fun gameplay-wise but I couldn’t help but feel like the explanation for all of Alucard’s magical vampire powers seemed a little like it was perhaps invented by a five year old and programmed into the story by their thirty year old brother.

As much as everyone complained that this Castlevania reboot “ruined the franchise” I enjoyed it overall. The three main characters were kind of overly-samey for my tastes to the point that I kept accidentally attacking Alucard instead of Dracula because frankly he looked more menacing but I dug that kind of toon-shaded comic book style thing they had going on.
