Was it kino or cringe?

Shouldn't this be in the pre2k general?

Castlevania 1: Masterpiece
Castlevania 2: Great game with Bisqwit's improvement patch
Castlevania 3: Fantastic game that improves on 1 in every respect sans pure simplicity. Play Akumajou Densetsu (Japanese version) for original OST.
Vampire Killer (MSX): Pretty cringe. Some great ideas, plays entirely differently from the original, but borderline impossible to beat, even with the Konami cheat cartridge to give you more continues/lives and save states.
Haunted Castle: Cringe. Great music, atrocious gameplay. Worth running through for 20 minutes with save states for curiosity's sake.

Kid Dracula: (Famicom, GB) Great game in its own right. Much easier than the other Castlevania titles but a very solid title.
Castlevania The Adventure: Sort of cringe but not an awful game. Lacking with some serious flaws. They wouldn't get it right til 2.
Castlevania II Belmont's Revenge: Pretty based, they got things right here. Solid level design, better speed and controls, great music.
Castlevania Legends: Not as bad as 1, not as good as 2...not great in general. At best a competent enough side-scroller.

Castlevania IV: Wonderful game, SNES Konami at its peak. Great controls, level design, atmosphere, music. A masterpiece worthy of the first. (play Akumajou Dracula for SFC for the uncensored version.)
Castlevania Bloodlines: Great game, holds up to IV, perfectly realized Castlevania on the Sega Genesis. (play Japanese version for the unaltered experience.)
Rondo of Blood (PC Engine CD): Possibly the peak of the old-school series along with 1, 3 and 4. Interesting level design with branching paths, sophisticated music and exceptional design on all fronts.
Dracula X (SNES): Solid side-scrolling game, but much weaker than the others of its generation. (IV, Rondo, Bloodlines, Sharp X68000.)
Akumajou Dracula: (Sharp X68000) KINO, very worthwhile, fantastic side-scrolling Castlevania. Does little in innovation but a solid, finely tuned entry in the series.

The music is really amazing, it sounds weirdly cool.

>> No.6798543

using the word kino is cringe
but good game

>> No.6798547

I don't see why people overlook the default music. I find it a lot more fitting than the alternate soundcard options.

>> No.6798556

Compared to 1, 3 is an absolute mess. It does a lot fo things really well but it's also full of very bad level design. Unlike 1, which is almost perfect from start to finish.

>Dracula X
Wasn't that a bastardized port of Rondo for SNES?

>> No.6799163

Why did they make Simon a ginger in BDSM gear in later editions?

It's great. It's a remake of 1 but it's also a "best of" with elements from 3, 4 and even HC

Reminder not to touch the PS1 version

>> No.6799205

Dracula X is the original name of RoB and SotN; Dracula X Chi no Rondo and Dracula X Moonlight Nocturne respectively. The letter X serves the same purpose as EX in Street Fighter II, i.e. it's jsut there to be cool: it used to be Akumajo Dracula but now it's DRACULA EKS WHOA.

Because that's how originally he was supposed to look?

>Castlevania Chronicles
That trashy port?
Nope, I'm playing the original thing.
For some reason it runs slower on my pc and my phone, maybe PX68K is getting faulty or something

The perfect was actually near perfect.

>> No.6799276

This is all bullshit. I doubt you'd even see the difference by just playing them.

>> No.6799285

How do you think I saw the difference then? If you play both versions and don't notice anything you have some incredibly low standards

>> No.6799698

>Reminder not to touch the PS1 version

Why? It includes a perfect port of the Sharp X68000 original in addition to the altered version with different sprites/graphics/sound effects/music/gameplay changes.

>> No.6799720

An absolutely based assessment.

Nothing perfect about it.
