Castlevania Resurrection turned out to be almost prophetically well named

I sure hope it's better than S3. I thought that was a'ight right up until the end. The Alucard stuff felt very out-of-character to me.
I completely agree. Definitely felt like "bad fan-fic" territory.They were really struggling to find something for Alucard to do that season.
And so they settled for the... worst possible character arc for him
I read through the entire run of Game Player's recently and found this to be pretty amusing. I think the most egregious thing that stood out to me was them giving Battle Arena Toshinden perfect 10s. Even they sheepishly admitted a few months later how stupid that was and apologized in their reviews of the Saturn version. EGM certainly never missed an opportunity to shit on 2D for a while as well.I've been reading a lot of magazines from that time for video research lately, and honestly, the fact that the press of the day largely shit on the best-looking pixel art that's ever existed while simultaneously lauding the worst 3D is a fuckin' headscratcher. I mean, I know that 3D was the new hotness, I was there, I was also in love with 3D, but I definitely was not shitting on SotN or Mega Man X4 in their day because "lol, 2D."
Also of note: this is the same publication that in the same issue they reviewed SotN, they said it was the 12th best game of all-time.
