Curse of Darkness. It's the only game in the series that I can say with absolute certainty that I'll never play again. It has its fun moments, but the level design utterly killed it. And the story ended up being a major letdown...more so when you factor in its link to CVIII.

I could definitely play me some Adventure, though. Not as fun as Belmont's Revenge, but I liked it better than Legends. From a pure gameplay standpoint, at least.
I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

What I liked in this game is the fact that you can get really good gloves, so you can go punching and kicking until the end. (I never played until the end :( )

That might be a good thing Lelygax. I found the ending to be a bit of a disappointment in the whole and for this reason alone:

Was there something unfinished in OoE? I don't remember...
Now I'm tired, eternally walking... forever dying, and never stopping. I feel in sorrow, all I see is white. I’m following a blind way beneath a sad sky.

No, but the problem to me is the end, it ends abruptly, almost as if they needed to meet a deadline and then said "you know what, we already made a good story until now, lets forget about the last minutes and go drink something" and then we got this.

Lament of Innocence for me. People complain that Curse of Darkness was a downgrade in gameplay department from its predecessor but at least it was way more interesting. The samey corridors, the boring character and the boring story and boring gameplay put me to sleep. It is first Castlevania I could not finish.

It has to be Harmony of Dissonance, the music alone killed the game for me. :(

Cv 64. Could never really get down with this title. Could be because my N64 usually had goldeneye and Mario kart in it. Maybe one day I can try it again to see if it will grow on me
