Castlevania قائمة باقتراحاتي الخاصة للسلسلة كاسل فانيا (Guest Post)

Here is another post by our Guest writer “ Monkey in Kuwait Blog

(10)= MUST PLAY (Recommended).

(5)= Play it if you’re interested in the series.

(0)= Play it at your own risk (Not recommened)

(?)= Haven’t played it

Castlevania (5):

The original game, play it on the NES and skip the other versions, but if you’re not into NES graphics there is a good remake (Castlevania Chronicles) on PSX.

Vampire Killer on MSX (0):

It’s the same as the NES version but with a different –boring- gameplay style.

Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest (?):

I haven’t played it, because of the Angry Video Game Nerd’s video review, I recommend you watch the video instead of playing the game.

Haunted Castle (0):

An arcade version, AVOID IT AT ALL COSTS!!!

Castlevania: The Adventure, Castlevania II: Belmont’s Revenge, Castlevania Legends (0):

The Gameboy versions of the game, Legends was the 1st Castlevania to have a female protagonist .

Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse (5):

The 3rd installment on NES, great gameplay change with 4 characters to choose from (Unlock differs by the paths you choose during gameplay).

Akumajō Special: Boku Dracula-kun, Kid Dracula (0):

It’s about a baby Dracula and something like that, only played Kid Dracula for several freaking seconds, to hell with them both!!!

Super Castlevania IV (10):

A SUPER OMG! Game, no need to read anything GO PLAY IT!

Akumajō Dracula AKA Castlevania Chronicles (10):

A remake of the original game available on PSX and PSN, jump into this one if you don’t want to play the 1st on NES.

Castlevania: symphony of the night, Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles (10):

legendary games in one PSP package, or you can get them separately.

Castlevania: Bloodlines (10):

The only one for the Sega Genesis and the bloodiest of them all!

Castlevania: Dracula X (5):

A poor port of Rondo of Blood but a good game by its own, play the original which is better, oh and expect too much gameplay punishment like the original Rondo!!!

Castlevania, Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness, Castlevania: Lament of Innocence, Castlevania: Curse of Darkness, Castlevania Judgment, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (0):

Oh dear!, Here is my theory “Any Castlevania with 3D graphics = S***, screw them all!”.

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance, Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (?):

I haven’t played those so I can’t judge, and Konami got the Pro evolution Soccer policy into their games, DAMN IT!!! How many games in their series they got? A dozen of Silent hills, Dance “FREAKING” Dance revolution, Gradius, PES, Castlevanias and 3 7alloom oo 2 b6a6 oo bedeyan, ohhh and SCREW YOU ALSO CAPCOM, jeez where the hell are the new IPs?

Note: Bring Ba6reeq back!!!

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow (?), Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin (?),Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (5):

The Castlevania barrage continues on the Nintendo DS, Order of Ecclesia is a mix between classic and Castle maps play style.

Castlevania: Order of Shadows (0):

It’s a S***ty mobile game.

Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth (?):

It’s a WiiWare release with the classic gameplay style, according to Wikipedia “The setting of the game takes place a century before the original Castlevania title, where the player controls an ancestor of Simon Belmont named Christopher Belmont, who must defeat the vampire Dracula.”

I haven’t played the Arcade, iPhone and the PSN/Xbox arcade versions of the game.

  • عاد والله كاسلفينيا من احلى الألعاب اللي لعبتها حتى بعض الأجزاء صج اللي اعتبرهم فشلوا على البلي ستيشن 2 بس هم لعبتهم …. I really recommend this game (all the games actually) 

  • Mr. M-A

    Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night is a masterpiece and none will reach it’s league, really. I sometimes put the game just to listen to the soundtrack on my home theater system. 

    However, 7aram 3alaik ta36y Castlevania: Lords of shadow 0. I disagree, completely. While the others were shit, this actually made an effort. Not one level is the same, the atmosphere is awesome,the music is great and various puzzles (one puzzle infact had a retro touch to it that was amazing), many boss battles, lots of moves, collectibles + awesome upgrades, lengthy game(Xbox360 version came with 2 disks lol) and a spectacular twist ending. It is the best 3D castlevania, period and since the game finished on an epic note showing there is a sequel, i am sure it will follow this structure which if it does, awesome.

    Listening to this song alone, tells you the scope and beautiful attention to detail with passion this game got. I urge everyone to play it if they didn’t, it is very underrated because probably people thought since it’s 3D, it’s shit and never gave it a chance. 

    Other examples…

    If you didn’t play it. I urge you to do so and hopefully you wont miss out on a really good Castlevania game. If it was a 2D game i would compare it to it but since it’s 3D and all the other games are below decent then this is the best in terms of it being 3D. Hopefully, nobody misses out.
