WORST Castlevania?

Everyone talks about best something Vania, but what is your personal WORST? Just for fun, Pachinko series included. Whatever konami calls it CV, it is (only for this thread tho).

For me, it would be Pachinko or Slot machine (yes I actually devoted my poor 2000 yen upon testing this shit when I went there) because they ruined the story, the CV feeling and characters, especially  Sypha and Maria for me, but my least fav on the normally considered as CV games, it's Judgment. Not that I have much to say, playing this only in my poor (for buying this game on full price) buddy's place, but it was shit from my little experience of a bit over 5 or 6 hours.

I'd respond CR Akumajou Dracula (aka Erotic Violence), but that is the cliche response.

My personal worst unique Castlevania has to be Haunted Castle. The devs aren't even careful to DISGUISE the game's coin-eating nature.

Now, my personal worst Castlevania of all is the Amiga port of the first Castlevania. Holy goddamn shit, what the hell did they do to Castlevania.

I'd say in my experience the worst port would be PSP port of SotN as part of DXC (only compared to PSX/SS original or re-release of PS3/XBLA). Holy hell. RIP Maria.

Look at this ^

How can someone find the SotN PSP port worse than The Fly Dracula?*

* = I'm kidding, before anyone thinks I'm being serious. But really, look at Drag Queen Dracula.

Counting the Pachislots, yes Erotic Violence is the worst by default. As for video games, Judgement is the worst for me. It's just an embarrassing game

I'd say in my experience the worst port would be PSP port of SotN compared to SS original.
The awful low quality SFX samples comes from the Saturn "original", that port was also bad because it had framerate and resolution problems, long loading times and not having easy access to the map.

Either way I'd place Haunted Castle as the worst castlevania, it has terrible controls, terrible "balance" and more, pachinkos at least can get me a cute prize or cake, but Haunted Castle just leaves me upset and clean of coins.

I didn't play much ported games (Chronicles, MSX CV1 and RoB with SotN). Only reason for me disliking PSP SotN is thanks for making Maria so weak compared to her other appearance. Game itself's great, though I'd play on PS3 port. Also, one good thing of the port would be adding English Nocturne.

This looks almost as garish as Jim Power.  All of them.
