Well I certainly agree that the newest Castlevania Game for PSP does rock!! My favorite game inside that one is the new version of Castlevania Dracula X.

And by the way I'm tired of seeing more Castlevania and Megaman games on portables, I want them back on the consoles!! They rock on the consoles!!

Bah, well all the 3D ones suck.

My response:
Uh, NO. All the 3D Castlevanias were fine in my analysis and judgment. They could've been made better, that's all.

Interesting.

I can't really offer a good answer, having only played two console Castlevanias (the two on the N64, although one was essentially just an upgrade on the other.)

But I'd say the handheld offerings are stronger. I can't say whether Harmony of Dissonance or Circle of Moon were anything special, but I know Aria of Sorrow, Dawn of Sorrow and Portrait of Ruin are all excellent :)

However, I did love the N64 version, even if everyone else hated it SotN looks brill, but for me to play it would cost so much money.

I don't much like the new, anime-style artwork. It just seems excruciatingly non-canon. Even if the guys all looked homosexual, I still liked the old style a lot - it added much to the atmosphere of the game.



I would have to concur. While I have enjoyed the gameplay of some of the more recent installments of the franchise, the change to the "fem-boy" look is a little unnerving for old school Castlevania fans.

Then again, we did only have so many pixels available

I prefer the nes, snes/sega and I love the gameboy ones too, I am addicted to portrait of ruin, I don't like the recent 3D big ones because they put too much detail on graphics and not game play, though I like the N64 ones.

I just realized that I have as of yet to directly answer the question posed within the thesis of the thread.

Personally, I have preferred the "big" system installments over the handheld versions. The Ruin chapter is great---don't get me wrong---but, again, I am an older fan of the franchise so my favorite belongs to Castlevania III, which was published on the original Nintendo system.

I have played a black-and-white Gameboy Castlevania game using a Super Gameboy attachment. It was pretty flawed, and most likely was only visited by Castlevania fans. This may sound silly, but I have fond memories of Tiger's handheld, two AA battery run Simon's Quest game. I remember "beating" it during a blizzard while stuck in a Minnesota airport.
