Feels like this game couldn't fully commit to being an action RPG. Combat feels slow, hit detection is weird. Maybe I'm doing it wrong?"

You're not.

I have the exact same sentiments. I actually prefer the remake in terms of gameplay for that very reason: the combat at least feels somewhat real time.

I hate waiting for my attack to charge up to 100% just to swing at the enemy and either miss or have to wait a few seconds for the hit to actually register. I hate the way bosses are basically just "spam magic to win".

I totally get the love for Secret of Mana. I want to love it, and I do at first when I attempt to play it, but then I get stuck in a dungeon later in where I'm going through the same attack, wait, attack, wait cycle over and over again and it's just dull and boring.

Trials of Mana is better, but still suffers from the same issues, albeit to a much lesser extent.

The Contra I just played was Shattered Soldier, not Hard Corps. But yeah, I have played and enjoyed Hard Corps a lot. Although it can be too trial-and-errory at times. (Like that boss who puts a crosshair on the screen, which is actually the SAFE zone for his next attack). The JP version is also included on the Contra Anniversary Collection.

100% agree! Despite its extreme differences from the rest of the series, I felt that it still had the charm that I enjoyed from the other BK games, and it was a lot of fun (aside from a few challenges, like you said).

Good deal!

Oh, whoops - I forgot to add you back. I've done so now!

EDIT: Also just looked through your Castlevania collection. We agree on quite a bit! If you haven't played Rondo of Blood, I highly recommend it - probably the Requiem re-release as opposed to the PSP version (admittedly I haven't played the PSP version, but I've heard it doesn't quite have the same feel; I aim to try it myself sometime to see). I personally enjoyed it the most out of the classic 2D games, though Bloodlines is a close second for me. Just watch out for the cutscenes, which are typical 90s fare.
