Castlevania: The Greatest Classic Monster Video Game

When the original Castlevania game was released for the NES in the mid-80s, classic monsters found their way to console gaming in a big way.

One quick look at the boss line up for the original game, and you know this is the one:

Stage 1: Giant Bat (foreshadowing Dracula in Stage 6?)
Stage 2: Medusa
Stage 3: The Mummies
Stage 4: Frankenstein and Igor
Stage 5: Death (yes...that Death, The Grim Reaper)
Stage 6: Dracula

Thanks to the Nintendo Wii, fans of the original game (one of the best in the the long-running series), can play Castlevania without the NES console.
