The best Castlevania games and a huge collection to boot

October 22, 2014

Castlevania has been around for well over 25 years now, and has produced more games than I can think of off the top of my head. Trust me, I can think of a lot of them, but which ones are the best Castlevania games worth keeping around and playing multiple times?

Not all Castlevania games make my personal list, but one site gets it right on the head of the nail with a list they put together, which reflects every title I've not only played, but would certainly play again and again.

2d-X did a list of the 8 best games in the Castlevania series worth taking a second look at. Now some of you were possibly too young or not even born yet to have played some of these, but I assure you if you took the time to try them all out, you would not be disappointed. Let's break that list down a bit shall we? From start to finish in no particular order.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

For me, the king of all "MetroidVania" titles. For the first time starring the main character and son of Dracula Alucard, and with a dash of cheesy dialogues such as the famous "What is a man?, a miserable little pile of secrets!" Can't forget that one for this PS1 hit.

Castlevania: Bloodlines

Too bad the Genesis / MegaDrive didn't see more Castlevania titles, but at least we got a chance to run through this one with John Morris and Eric Lecarde.

Castlevania: Rondo of Blood

Oh how I wish this PC-Engine CD hit had come to other parts of the world outside of Japan, and it did in some form on the PSP, which was a bit of a remake title

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

The Gameboy Advance hand held system gave the world many games, and three Castlevania games were among them, this one being the best of the three.

Castlevania original NES

Who could forget the one that started it all? It had all you needed for classic Castlevania action, and was the catalyst for many more to come.

Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse

NES Castlevania games are like potato chips, you can't have just one, and the ability to select from multiple characters, as well as multiple paths while playing through the game is a must have.

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

My personal favorite Nintendo DS Castlevania ever, which also introduced the first female character, as the main character that is. I am well aware of playing as Maria in Rondo of Blood, and in Symphony of the Night. (Saturn Version)

Super Castlevania 4

Super is as super does, and Super Castlevania 4 for the Super Nintendo gave the player more control over Simon Belmont's moves than before, giving rise to using your whip to swing across areas, as well as sort of wiggling it around to act as a close range minor weapon against enemies like bats.

That about wraps it up for my take on it, how about yours? Are there any particular classic titles you think should have made the list, or does this one and the one at 2d-X about wrap it up for you? I'd like to hear some of your feedback below. By the way, check out this guy's collection, I think he pretty much as all Castlevania games in his possession, right?
