A little off topic here, are Lords of Shadow and Prince of Persia significantly different and/or worse than their originals? I've never really played either series and I want to know where to start.
Lords of Shadow isn't very much like any Castlevania game honestly.
I'd recommend just starting with Castlevania Symphony of the Night the gameplay is like butter. If you like it try out the DS games and the two PS2 3-D games.
The really old school games have pretty stiff controls and are not recommend for has something good to start with. If you play any try Rondo of Blood and Super Castlevania 4. If you like either then try Castlevania 1 and 3.
The Prince of Persia games before Sands of Time play terribly but I guess the original was something for it's time.
Sands of Time and Two Thrones are awesome. Warrior Within is a mess. PoP08 has great graphics but the gameplay is like one long hidden QTE. Forgotten Sands on PS3 was pretty fun though.
