Best DS Castlevania?

I loved Albus mode ... but I have a thing for gun weilders and his shots all had their uses as well as his melee attacks. It was a lot of fun for me.

It's not hard at all for me. Dawn of Sorrow is not only my favorite DS Castlevania, but my favorite Metroidvania period. I really do think it's the closest the series has got to perfecting the formula, even though it's not perfect by any means.
Portrait is fine, but suffers from severe abuse of copypasting near the end. It was pretty lazy design on their part.
Ecclesia is fine too, even though it too has the copypaste problem (although it's more scattered through the game). It's the hardest of the three, that's good, but at the same time I was not a fan of the map design.
I need a signature...

Dawn of Sorrow's only real flaw was that stylus stuff to finish bosses. Order kind of dragged on a bit in spots, but it didn't have completely rehashed environments like the second half Portrait of Ruin did.

Dawn's an A-, Order's a B+, Portrait's a B-. They're all good at the very least.

All 3 were extremely good. But if I had to choose, I'd say Order of Ecclesia was my favorite.

PoR was the most fun, DoS had the most original castle and OoE...had nice art but it's lacking in fun factor.

PoR is my fave. Didn't like OoE much and I've never played DoS.

I'm replaying ooe on hard right now, great game, but Jesus I can't get over how lame Reginald Mode is. (Yes I know it's albus mode)

My favorites are Ecclesia and Ruin, while I love Sorrow, drawing seals to defeat bosses made me quit the game, but it had Julius Mode, brobably the best Extra mode in the castlevania series.
