This man speaks the truth about video games.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

Too bad Dracula X sells for around $100 Drac' dollars on eBay. :p
You've inspired me Ryno to jump on board the Dracula X belmont train due to it being almost a simular-yet different game all together....That's 'If' and when it becomes more affordable. For now when i get around to it I'd much rather sink my Count Chocula teeth into Bloodlines B-)

And I never knew about the original NES JAP releases having blood in them, that's pretty awesome and it kind of urks my Urcle the wrong way that the NA releases didn't allow it but it's not suprising. I guess at least in the NA it's what makes Bloodlines seem unique aside from not featuring any of the belmonts and being on the Sega Genesis all together.

You know what Konami needs to do? Make a traditional Castlevnania starring this Captain N hunk' lol

Swinging round and arround and that useless 360º whip are the most awlful mechanics EVER
it is also slow and brown

You're straight up insane. It's "'brown" is the best argument you can muster? The game is a masterpiece; the single best Castlevania ever made. Superb graphics, gameplay and music.

What would you guys say are the hardest Castlevania games? Iv'e been having trouble on the last levels of Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth, but I know the first game and Castlevania III are supposed to be quite difficult.

CIII is defintly the toughest in the franchsie, with Rondo easily next in line. Easiest without a doubt is The Adventure: ReBirth. Yet the original Cas' gets pretty deadly towards the end of the game where you have to up against Death, including the Knight Axe-tossing medussa riddledHall way leading up to him.He's even tougher than the spooksters of spooks himself 'Dracula'. :o

From toughest to easiest I'd rank them like this. B-)

1. CIII: Dracula's Curse
2. Rondo of Blood
3. Super Castlevania IV - (That stage with the scrolling 'down to up' platforming was an INtense Belmont Nightmare!)
4. Castlevania
5. The Adventure: ReBirth

Not counting II: Simon's Quest since it's such a departure from the Catlevania norm, plus it's challenge doesn't exactly come from taking down enemies, the platforming or the ridiculous mind numbingly easy Bosses, It comes from the crazy obscure "WTF" do I do moments where you're basically screwed if you don't have a strategy guide. Better yet, one of the first Nintendo Power mag's to hit the scene. ;)

I'm sure this guy is thrilled for all these answers... over a year after he made this thread...

Haha, fair enough! But hopefully others can benefit from these replies as well.

On a related note, which would you guys say is the best Castlevania DS game? I'm playing Symphony of the Night for the first time and loving it, and from what I understand, the DS games follow the template for exploration established in that game. Which would you recommend?

i know this is almost 2 years and 4 months later... but you JUST PLAYED SoTN ? its by far the best Castlevania !!! and on the DS... hard one, on the GBA my favorite was Harmony of Dissonance, Juste Belmont was just too awesome. on the DS i would say Order of Ecclesia, i loved the story of that one, and the weapon system its amazing

Yes, Rondo is a fantastic game. I wish they woulda kept the original voiceover in the intro for the VC version though.

I wish Bloodlines and Vampire 's Kiss were on the VC. I'd get them. I only haven't got NES Castlevania 2 and GB Castlevania.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'll never touch the SNES version of Dracula X as I've already beaten Rondo...Besides it will never come to the VC, and it goes for over $100 on eBay. Not worth the pixel pennies! And funk Castlevania Chronicles, with it's terrible looking graphical update and Chedder 'n cheesy PSX music renditions.

BTW, what's Vampire Kiss? Has Bass_Xo discovered a top secret sequal to his favorite movie Series 'Twilight'? :p Awesomeness aside, I'm going to be pulling the trigger on a Blue 3DS XL soon, so i can experience the final retro 2D'Vania' left that i need to beat in the this Whip wielding wonderful series. 'The Adventure'

But after that, there's nothing left....I'll be sucked bone dry by the count and won't having nothing to play. I doubt i'll dip into Portrait of Ruin or Order of Oclesia and especially the GBA MetroidVania's. I can't imagine going through another samo samo metroidvania again. It' a complete chore. SOTN and Dawn of Sorrow(The better game imo) were enough. :p And the new Castlevania coming out for the 3DS looks like a bloody disgrace. Hopefully Konami will get their act together and stop outsourcing their killer franchises to these silly western devs. Silent Hill and castlevania have been butchered because of this. What's next Contra!? Bill Rizer is going to get Rizafied.

"Castlevania: Vampire's Kiss" is the European title. And it's a completely different game than the PC-Engine Rondo of Blood, it's a lot more difficult.

That looks like a NES box rather than a SNES box...

Now, I'm saving my money to get Rondo... It just BETTER NOT be pulled off of the VC... Or else I'll buy a PC engine and a PC CD and the rondo game on my own! (But that'll cost a lot)

Have it your own Burger King way but you are missing out on a Rondo of Blood 2 as I like to think of it while not playing Dracula X in NA, Vampire's Kiss in Europe, and Akumajou Dracula XX in Japan.

I would say Castlevania Rondo of the Blood is the best old school Castlevania not only in the VC but also out there.
I 've played Castlevania Rebirth and I must say it is an excellent old school Castlevania
