Ecclesia, but the Sorrow duology stomps it immediately.

All of them are fantastic. Ecclesia might be my personal favorite.

I love all three. Portrait of Ruin was the weakest entry, but a great game nonetheless.

Its between Dawn of Sorrow and Order of Ecclesia. Order of Ecclesia did something very interesting with the franchise by breaking it up into an area exploration type of thing instead of just having one big castle. Shanoa was also a cool character, because we hardly get powerful female leads in this day and age.

But the winner for me is Dawn of Sorrow. Its the sequel to my favorite Castlevania game and the game I bought my DS for, which was great because it came out very close to launch date. Soma is the best main character in the series, and the soul system kind of took over the game. We haven't seen another character as customizable as Soma yet. Also, my favorite soundtrack in the whole series is the Aria + Dawn of Sorrow OST.

I'll be biased considering that I only played Order of Ecclesia for now.

Most people did say Portrain of Ruin is the least among the three. May I know why? I played a bit of it and it seems pretty cool especially how you can use 2 characters.

Whatever that is on your mind is my signature.

Because its whole gimmick, being primarily "outside" of the Castle? Is poorly done. And using 2 characters would be fine if they were bearable. They really aren't.

The only true cool thing PoR does is the final boss tag-team fight. That was badass.

Ecclesia > Sorrow > Ruin

I have to say dawn for due to its replayability, I absolutely loved playing as Julius and Alucard, but couldn't get into whatever his name is from Ecclesia

Dawn of Sorrow is great for Julius Mode alone. Order of Ecclesia is still my favorite, though.

I will rule the world, and find that truly good cup of coffee.
