Besides the changes of the graphical style, we have also a great change on the gameplay, allowing to player to experience the stages with more action and in different ways.
The story gets more mature, introducing us to a world 100 years after the where classic games takes place, and, finally, we can feel like that the story will decently move forward without the same formula of story. Well, almost.
This game has lots of cool details that enrich the gameplay, the one I most love certainly is the fact that by defeating one boss, you can affect how the stage of another one will work. Making the playthrough of each person be quite unique.
It's a great start for this series, although, honestly, I never clicked with, dunno why.
