Features, longeivity, extras, etc.

So far, all I know is that Dawn of Sorrow overall has better scores, so 1 point for Dawn of Sorrow.

I liked DoS more I think it's a longer game also. Both are good and give you different characters for replay after you beat them once.

i liked PoR better. i loved the whole johnathan/charlotte switcharoo thing. it was sweet. and i think it had a bit of a better storyline, but hey, to each his own

In all honesty, I liked Portrait of Ruin better.

It is much harder than Dawn of Sorrow, the cast is much better and the interactions are better developed, and the dungeon design has the much needed variety the series should be getting.

I preferred the soul collection system from DoS, and the more mature theme overall (PoR is too anime-shounen styled for it to be truly Castlevania-ish).

Dawn of Sorrow, definitely. It was much more organized and the two-person system of Portrait of Ruin just annoyed me.

I dunno, both were insane and I won't pick a side but I think if they make a game with the feautres of both games, that would kick some butt

THANK YOU! (Finallys someone thinks what I think about PoR!) Well anyways, I say DoS, PoR was good but it was kinda short and DoS is longer than it I think...and when you're done with DoS, you can buy PoR!

DoS...but that's the only one I've played :D

but from what I've heard about PoR, DoS sounds better...

Dawn of Sorrow is the better game. It's longer, it has the soul system (which rocks), and it's just overall a better game.

The painting thingy made Portrait of Ruin feel like less adventurous, which is not a bad thing depending on how you look at it. But some people prefer the other, and I'm one of them.
