Story
MAN MEETS MAGIC & MACHINE. The year is 2054. Magic has returned to the world, awakening powerful creatures of myth and legend. Technology merges with flesh and consciousness. Elves, trolls, orks and dwarves walk among us, while ruthless corporations bleed the world dry.

Gameplay
The Gameplay is a turnbased rpg text adventure that utilises the tools used in terms of point and click, in order to migrate through locations and utilise the tools at hands to solve mysteries and progress through the game, the rpg style is broken up with action sequences that utilises the click based combat style that awards the player with xp and new items that the player can use to level up.

Sound
The Soundtrack has that cyber Punk Style that makes the game reminiscent of movies such as blade runner, with the perfect mix of music and other elements the game manages to give you the perfect mix of style and substance.

Graphics
Graphics have a mixture of 2.5 d overhead with 16 bit style that gives you  that retro feel but still allows the game to seem current.

Downsides
- Text is great but this game has alot of it
- Sometimes its near enough impossible to complete a mission as settings kind of vary throughout.

Overall
Game rating: 8 out of 10

Pros:
- Great Gameplay
- Graphics are amazing
- Crisp Sound
- Highly Addictive

Cons:
- too much text
- Repetitive

Castlevania: Bloodlines - Part 2 - Rose Colored Let's Play!!

Time to finish off stage two and move on to the third stage. I also talk a little bit about some of the things I have seen since moving to New York City.

Can someone explain why the heroes in the Castlevania games can't swim?

In this game, you take on the role of either John Morris or Eric Lecarde. As you can gather, the American version is featured in this video which has quite a bit of blood and gore for a game which was rated "GA" for General Audiences back in the day. A more censored version was released in Europe and Australia under the name "Castlevania: The New Generation."
