  • Excerpt: I’ll be the first to admit some certain distaste for the Fighting sub-genre. I’m generally more of a gamer that plays for story and game play, and while fighters are full of game play, for some reason they always feel stagnant or repetitive to me. However, I’ve always been captivated by the Soul Edge/Soul Calibur series, mostly because of it’s element of realism and the epic sweeping music coupled with the interesting character design that is subtle, but also flashy...
  • Pros: + Fluid game play and beautiful characters.
  • Cons: - Lacks a bit of story and explanation.

  • Conclusion: Cassandra Alexandra who is the younger sister Sophitia from the first game, she's taking up her big sister's sword and shield to fight, also new are Hon Yun Tsung, a swordfighter in the tradition of Hwang Sung Kyung of the previous game, and a young lass named Tarim who seems to be filling the obligatory spot of at least one 15 year-old warrior in any console game ever created.

  • Excerpt: Welcome… to the stage of history. The introduction of a new Soul Calibur game is rightfully defined as a historical event. In the genre of fighting games exists three categories: realistic, such as Virtua Fighter or Tekken which employ actual martial art styles; surrealistic, as with Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat; and weapons.

  • Conclusion: Soul Calibur 2 is the definitive 3D-Fighter. With smooth gameplay, beautiful graphics and deep play modes, Namco’s fighter is one of the best games that money can buy.

By including exlusive characters for each console, if you own either an xbox, ps2, or gamecube, there's really no reason for you not to own this game.

Soul Calibur 2

The Next Level
2 September 2003
  • Excerpt: Most of the significant differences fans will especially notice are actually more cosmetic than technical. Each of the original characters return in search of the phantom Soul Edge weapon, including such favorites as Mitsurugi, Ivy and Taki (whose assets seem to have grown since the last time I remember). By now you've probably heard that only two of the characters can truly be considered fundamentally new.
