For years I thought Castlevania IV was superior to Castlevania: Bloodlines....
But after playing both, back to back, on the Castlevania Collection (all things being equal in a sense), I gotta give it to Bloodlines.
Yes, I was a Genesis/MD kid growing up, but i honestly thought IV had better graphics, music etc
But now i see it's not even close, Yes, the music for stage one in IV is one of the best stage themes ever but the ost really drops off after that, I think overall the OST is better in Bloodlines.
And I honestly think the graphics are better in Bloodlines, on a 4k tv anyway. The graphics for Simon just don't look right and the enemies all look half-assed and the subweapons look plain terrible.
For gameplay I gotta give it to Bloodlines as well, for one you have two characters, but it's also faster and feels tighter.
Sure this might stir up some old feelings, but that's why i posted it.
