"The Legend Will Never Die"

tom1clare, Ciao
5 July 2007
  • Excerpt: It's hardly surprising that, upon eventually getting hold of a second-hand Dreamcast, one of the first games I bought to accompany the beautiful white(ish) machine was the 3D beat 'em up Soul Calibur.
  • Pros: Astounding visuals, superb controls, immense depth, tonnes of lifespan
  • Cons: Only available as a Dreamcast - exclusive

High hopes but rather dissapointing finish......

  • Conclusion: Since PSP release into the market 4 years ago, I have been waiting for this game to be played on PSP. So I was very excited when this game is finally available on PSP. However, no arcade mode and story mode which is biggest let down.

  • Conclusion: The basic fact that Namco managed to cram Soul Calibur IV onto the PSP is nothing short of a miracle, newcomers Kratos (of God of War fame) and Dampierre (a moustached madman who appears to be a strange mix of Voldo and Jack the ripper) are worthy additions and are far more suited to the gameplay...

Technically amazing, but sorely lacking in modes

  • Conclusion: First, this game both looks and plays incredibly, with probably the best visuals you've seen on a handheld game. It runs super smoothly and the level of detail in the character models is astounding.

  • Conclusion: Ive been a big soul calibur fan for more than 10 years since the dreamcast days, so I was very excited when I heard about this realease. However when I read all the reviews I was pretty disappointed due to the lack of proper single player game modes (as you'll read from the reviews below).

Best Fighting Game Ever

Havoc2k3, Ciao
14 September 2003
  • Excerpt: The trouble with most fighting games is that the Single-Player game is so short and simple (usually just an Arcade mode where you have to defeat all the other characters in a row, or a "Story" mode where you have to defeat all the other characters in a row but there are cut scenes in between fights,...
  • Pros: Graphics, Playability, Size of Single - Player game

  • Excerpt: When I first got my grubby little hands on a video games console, I was lead into a world of bightly moving dots bouncing around a black screen hitting blocks and making them break... Breakout on the Atari2600.
  • Pros: It is actually better than Tekken
  • Cons: It was only out on DC

  • Excerpt: How can I help today? Oh, so Sir's Interested in a "beat 'em up"? Well Sir, how do you like your beat em up? An intelligent beat em up you say? Well Sir, I recommend you put down 'Dead or Alive', and that copy of 'Virtua Fighter'.

  • Excerpt: This has to be one of the best beat’em up games ever made! I played the original game when it vame out on the Playstation and dismissed it as Tekken with weapons. How wrong I was. I got Soul Caliber the first day it was out and haven’t regretted the purchase for a single moment.
  • Pros: Great graphics, ferocious gameplay
  • Cons: Could be made harder

The Soul Still burns...

Time_Warp, Ciao
5 August 2001
  • Excerpt: Ok so Soul Calibur may not be a sega game but we got it first for the DC. Probably the best beat’em up around at present and It would stay like that for a while. This is mainly because of its cool moves and great modes but you will just have to read on… modes; Vs battle mode-Battle it out against...
  • Pros: Graphics are genius, intelligent AI, packed with modes .
  • Cons: None
