Is The Beefier Version Worth it? Citidale: The Legends Trilogy

Citidale is a game I played on Wii U, and now the game has come to Steam as Citidale: The Legends Trilogy. My feelings on this version are rather mixed compared to the Wii U version. Is it a better port? Or is it missing the magic?

To begin, a major problem the game has is its sound. Right off the bat, the game sounds worse than it does on Wii U. This is not an issue with my computer as no other game has any sound issues, but with the game itself. It sounds more filtered and choppy and irritating to the ears. That right there was not a good sign for the game, but it managed to get even worse.

Visually the game looked the same, but when it came to the actual gameplay we have another story.  I do not know why, but the game just did not translate well in this port. The hit detection is atrocious, the controls are far too finicky for my liking.  It is my understanding that The Legends Trilogy is also on the Wii U, but as I have only played the initial release of Citidale on Wii U and not the later version, I cannot comment on if that version. But regardless of if it is different from the base game, The Legends Trilogy just plays awkwardly. It feels like the worst parts of Castlevania 1 were all cobbled together and enhanced.

There are good aspects to the game, as the new content that was not in the original release is interesting and does offer some new variety. I like the changes in play style and what can be done now, but I just wish that the game played better in general. As it is now, I do not recommend this.
