Pretty much at the same point as you - around 80% in and the game has yielded a boss challenge too far for me. I might come back to it one day. Really good game but it is brutal.

It is just one of those sorts of games that I suspect will start appearing on top 100 lists. It will only take one to give it street cred and the rest will follow. The game has world class design but it can get a little juvenile for me in places.

It is very similar to Iga's titles on the GBA and Playstation I am playing it right now obsessively. Like most things when the dust settles I will realize it is just a clone, a very good clone, of older titles. Right now memories are flooding in of games like Aria of Sorrow and Symphony of the Night. Bloodstained Ritual of the Night, while a good game, did not quite stir the feelings up as much - probably due to the graphical style.
