I still prefer the original Castlevania. I dont think you can go wrong with any of them on the VC.

Castlevania III is the best VC right now... but i didn't really play the home console Castlevania series when i was a kid,,, what i did have was my black and white Gameboy versions that my cousin gave me... Those Gameboy games sucked, so i didn't buy the home console versions back in the day LOL

SCIV gets my vote easily. I'd throw them down in this order
SCIV > CIII: Dracula's Curse + Rondo of Blood > Castlevania > CII: Simon's Quest.
I really wan't to replay III: Dracula's curse as Trevor Belmont only instead of the constant character switching.What i hated about it is that it never kept track of the alternate paths you took after completing the game, making multiple playthroughs a bit of a messy guessing game. A Map would of helped Konami! Also CIII is defintily the toughest Castlevania yet! With Rondo following closely behind.
I played them in the following order on the Wii's VC.
Castlevania > SCIV > CIII: Dracula's Curse > Rondo of Blood > CII: Simon's Quest

No offense, but that's horrible advice. It's such a glitchy, poorly designed game, and pulls a lot of crap near the end.

Why in hell would you wan't to play Dracula X for the SNES when the superior Rondo of Blood is already avaiable. And don't count on waiting, because Konami's hasn't been churning 'anything' up on the VC as of late. I'm still waiting for Castlevania: Bloodlines and Contra: Hardcorps but we probably won't even get those.

No offense, but I disagree with Order-Sol who I believe is Mac. I have the cart and I like Dracula X. The music and graphics are awesome opposum and it's Classic Castlevania on the SNES that is why you would want to play it Waveula! But like Wave said, I doubt this game will see the light of day on the VC as Rondo of Blood is available and Konami hasn't released anything on the VC anyway.

castlevania 3 dracula's curse and rondo of blood are my favorites. i would like to see dracula x on vc because i have never played it on super nes but i have on the psp. i can't seem to track a dracula x super nes online that doesn't cost a arm and a leg.

Well since I am not a huge fan of old school Castlevanias I would have to say either Super Castlevania IV or Rondo of Blood.

ive watched a playthrough of Castlevania IV twice now...what is it about this game that seems so bland? i dont think ive ever played that one, is it the whip twirling that got everyone? i got a lot of CV games for various systems, but somethings keeping me from this one. Bloodlines is awesome to me. and ill pick Dracula X over IV any morning

As @ogo79 said, the SNS-RZ-USA is a prime giveaway that it's not a legit retail cart.
And yes, he is (usually) always right, and he is (almost) the sexiest gamer out there (not counting me) ;)

I don't know why you think its so bland. Sure it may be Heavy Barrel on the brownishness but I don't view the setting of Castlevania as taking place in a land of puppy dogs and ice cream. Stuff is decrepit where the spooks hang out though there taste in music is fabulous indeed. And speaking of music, Super Castlevania's IV soundtrack is the greatest! It's moody like Super Metroid. Sure I like my discotech Castlevania soundtracks and some of the rock as well but Super Castelvania IV nails it masterfully! As for the whip thing yeah that's cool but there is so much more to the whole package of the game than that.

Yes, Super Castlevenia IV is the best!

@Rynoi almost downloaded it on VC to see what all the hype was, thats why i watched the full playthrough for a second time and still im on the fence with it.i still want to get it and play it through because im open to all Castlevania games.
95. Posted: Tue 6th Mar 2012 18:47 GMT
You should at least download it if not get a copy of the cart for your collection. It is probably the easiest Castlevania game (even on the 2nd quest) but its still grave fun.
As for Bloodlines, yeah I like it (It is classic Castlevania after all and there is not much more I like than that) but I thought the 6 levels was rather weak though you get two different characters. The music is just ok, stage 2 is awesome and even better with the Circle of the Moon remix. Though I do like the remix of the classics.

Rondo of Blood is the closest Castlevania title to fit that visualization. SCIV however just has that authentic brooding, haunting and spooky atmosphere coupled with the soundtrack which makes the franken-myst come alive! When i think of the best game to represent Castlevania, i think of IV.
And aside from the awesome dangling whip mechanic which can be used to block enemy projectiles(which adds even more skill into the mix) you also get to whip your 'whip' in all different directions this time around which makes it even more Shredder-special, yet certain butt hurt booger headed' die hard castlevania fans seem to be against SCIV's control scheme. I for one, am not. it's more versatile and fun if you ask me.
And also, I'd say III: Dracula's Curse has the 2nd best sound track in the traidional franchise, followed by Rondo. This track from ReBirth which was ripped & Remixed from II: Belmont's Revenge for the GB is one of thee' most awesome tracks to grace The Adventure: ReBirth. Loved that game in all of it's Arcadey-shortness. It felt like an ultra pretty SNES + Sega Genesis Castlevania love child rolled into one Humungo Nosferatu blood burger.
And man, I'm itching to play Bloodlines! I think i should just cave in a buy it already. and Isn't it the only Castlevania title to feature blood & gore?As for Dracula X....Hmmm, is it really worth checking out if you've beaten Rondo? I've seen the final boss battle against Drac' and it's completely different.

Castlevania on Nintendo systems in NA up until the time of Bloodlines wasn't allowed to ooze blood so yeah, I guess it was the first big NA Castlevania release to have it. Castlevania's in Japan had in-game blood on Nintendo systems. I find it interesting that the awesome Castlevania NES cover has blood dripping from Drac's fangs.
As for Dracula X, yes it's definitely worth checking out if you have beat Rondo and you have a pulse. Did you like Rondo? Of course you do! Well, it's like Rondo but due to some legal issues Konami was not allowed to directly port it to other 16-bit consoles so they created a new SNES iteration. The music quality is some of the best you will hear on the SNES and the graphics are great. You will enjoy if you don't compare it to Rondo which you shouldn't because then it would be pointless like a t-shirt for Krang. Enjoy it as an extension of Richter's adventure and you will have another classic Castlevania.

Aren't the levels completely different between Rondo of Blood and Dracula X? Anyhoo, on Bloodlines I have actually played it and it's quite neat and a great game in the series. I've been playing Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth recently and it does a great job of hearkening back to the classics with the graphics, soundtrack, and gameplay.

Yeah, the Dracula X and Rondo of Blood levels are redesigned and there are not as many branching paths in Dracula X.
