Having said that, I want to see someone who knows his stuff test out this theory:

Then you play the next game mode, finish the game again and say "hey, that was still easy".
Then you wish you "had" to avoid all the shortcuts and even avoid picking up any power up to make things harder.
Then you realize you can play the whole thing only with Zangetsu.
Then you wish the game was a little easier.

Playing Zangetsu-only mode makes you realize this game is BRILLIANT and everything you wished for is granted; everything makes sense now. It really feels like old Castlevania III. It's hard, it's frustrating, you have to practically make a perfect game, but when you beat the game, you're the man.


If no one does it I'll try it myself at some point. Game is only $10 anyway.
