I just think this game looks good. I really thought about it lately, but I came to a conclusion : I can't Forces myself to hate this game (get it :v I'm not a fanboy, I know this game as a lot of flaw : Classic Sonic being shoehorned in, the Gameplay looking more automated than ever, the abundance of 2d sections, the Wisps again (bonus point if the plot don't explain why they're here) and Izuka having clearly no idea what the fuck he's doing anymore. So I should hate it, right ? But every time I look at some gameplay for this game, my only thought is : "Damn, this looks fun, I can't wait to play it." That's how things are, I guess. I have no reason for wanting this game to fail. I do think they should get rid of a lot of things in the future 3D games, though. No more 2D, and less automation, please. Yeah, but Castlevania is a rather slow game. What remided me of X here is the fast paced gameplay. As I said, obviously Sonic is faster, but X can be a really fast game if you know how to use the dash. Also elemental weapon with a different effect. Flamethrower, Electric whip, Laser gun... What I wanted to say is that the two series had some similarities. But it's true that they don't play exactly the same.
