Portrait of Ruin picks up the story of Jonathan Morris and Charlotte Aulin as they make their way through the damned castle to kill Brauner, the resident vampire who has captured Dracula to get his power. The gameplay element of course is what makes the game stand out. It’s fast, hard and fun.
It’s classic. Everything works great and you will need a ton of skill to kill the bosses or even get to the next room, but it’s rewarding and fulfilling. There is also a co-op mode via local connection.
PS. Awesome soundtrack and immersion.
