Greatest Castlevania Games

The Top TenXW

1Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Hard choice between this one and order of ecclesia, I might change my vote later haha, but seriously, this game is awesome.

One of the greatest games of all time

This game changed the franchise. It was IGA, Michiru and Ayami first work together. Definitely one of the best games of all time.

2Super Castlevania IV

It's pure classic Castlevania, only perfected. Clunky controls are gone, and in their place we get to control the mid air jumps, as well as being able to whip in all 8 directions. There aren't any RPG elements, just simple classic Castlevania. And the music, is without a doubt, is the best in the series.

I love the dark and mysterious atmosphere of this game. - xandermartin98

3Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

I'm glad I'm not the only one who loves this one the best! Symphony of the Night is great but I think Order of Ecclesia is so much better! This is easily my favorite in the series! Anyone who thinks otherwise probably hasn't played it. Give it a shot, you may be surprised how amazing it is! Oh not to mention this it the first female lead in a Castlevania game and she is AWESOME!

4Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

Great game! Love the variety of weapons and enemies. I love the original castlevania feel with the new story plot and alternative music. Although I wish it had the vampire theme music in it.

Better than dawn of sorrow in my opinion, despite not being my favorite this game was the one who got me into castlevania.

I liked it better than the sequel.

5Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow

This game is perfect!

I know aria of sorrow came out first and started the whole souls thing ( WHICH IS AMAZING! )

But dawn of sorrow perfected everything aria had done

The soundtrack is the best in the series.

The graphics are simply amazing and better than aria's

And the way it feels every time a soul appears is better than aria's.

This one and Symphony of the night are the best but I think I like this one a bit more.

6Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse
7Castlevania

Tough to top the original. I grew up with this game, began playing at age 6 when it came out. I was obsessed and picked a different boss each year for my Halloween costume.

This should really be higher on this list along with Dracula X. - Acdcdanny

9Castlevania Bloodlines
10Castlevania: Rondo of Blood

This is the classic Castlevania perfected. Super Castlevania 4 is way too easy to be the best due to how game breaking the whip is. Super Castlevania 4 also lacks multiple characters and alternate pathways. Rondo of Blood has the perfect difficulty, multiple pathways, multiple characters, better visuals and audio, and the best soundtrack of the classic castlevania games.

This one deserves to be in the top 10.

The Contenders

11Castlevania: Circle of the Moon

In my opinion, Castlevania Circle of the Moon is probably the most underrated Castlevania game ever made. Following the Metroidvania style introduced in Symphony of the Night, Circle of the Moon introduced many cool new features such as the DSS and being able to play the game with different modes.

12Castlevania Harmony of Dissonance
13Castlevania: Dracula X

An amazing compilation of my 3 favorite Castlevania games: Sympony of the Night, Rondo of Blood, and Dracula X.

14Castlevania II: Simon's Quest
15Castlevania: Judgement
16Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

This game is awesome but it's so underrated. For me it's one of the best games of the franchise and I've played almost every castlevania. I know it's not like the other ones, but even if it's Castlevania or not this game is amazing. One of the few games that really touches my heart.

17Castlevania 64

Very underrated, deserves a little higher rating. The hedgemaze part still frightens me.

18Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate

Fantastically done CV game. It blends a lot of things from Lords of Shadow but puts it into a 2D environment. The graphics are fantastic and the 3D effect has to be seen to be believed. The gameplay is very fluid and the story is slowly revealed as you go along but lest to say it's pretty amazing when it wraps up. The music is more akin to Lords of Shadow, so it's more ambient than catchy, but it's not bad. Overall this game brought back the old school Castlevania feeling and combined it perfectly with the Lords of Shadow storyline. An absolute must play for old school Castlevania fans and Lords of Shadow fans alike! - evoxpisces
