A really good one on one fighter for the Gamecube

  • Summary: Probably one of the best fighters on the Gamecube. The addition of Link as a guest character makes this game all the more amazing. Really nice graphics and great controls. The story mode is quite nice too with additional weapons to obtain and new characters to unlock. Also features Yoshimitsu from the Tekken series, but he plays differently as the fighting is more weapon based.

Argueably the best beat-em-up on ANY CONSOLE.

  • Excerpt: The graphic on this game will make your eyes water, they are so incredibly detailed and flawless. Of course the game begins with fearless warriors on a quest for "the ultimate weapon " and thus Soul callibur is introduced, the weapon that is the source of all evil. Using one of the many interesting characters you must destroy every opposition in order to claim Soul callibur.
  • Pros: Lush graphics, very strategic gameplay and hundreds of button bashing moves to perform .  Back stories galore and interesting characters .
  • Cons: 1 on 1 multiplayer only, can be a little complicated and incredibly frustrating .

Soul calibur II-gamecube

9 December 2004
  • Excerpt: This is probably the best beat 'em up i have ever played, there are so many characters to choose from, most of which are original, i think it's clear that the NGC got the better deal with link as the console exclusive character. When you start the game, all seems a bit empty, yeah there are the standards like arcade mode and weapon master mode, and you think that this might be perhpas a bit short and dull? wrong.
  • Pros: Awesome graphics, truely inspiring, excellent controls and gameplay
  • Cons: Stick with it for an hour as it starts easy .

Soul Calibur II, the pinnacle of 3D fighters?

ttfp, Ciao
31 October 2004
  • Excerpt: Spanning two and a half generations of consoles, Namco's weapons based fighter is becoming just as popular as their other beat-em-up of note, namely Tekken. Namco's Soul franchise is a 'Tale of Two Swords', locked in an eternal battle over time and space. Soul Edge, the evil sword, against the legendary Soul Calibur, sword of benevolence. Over decades, warriors from across the globe have sought them out... yadda, yadda, yadda.
  • Pros: Incredible graphics, deep intuitive gameplay, yet still suitable for all abilities
  • Cons: Can resort in button mashing .  .  .  that's it !

  • Excerpt: A little History *************** Back in the days of the Dreamcast, Soul Calibur appeared, a game I had never heard of before this point, I remember thinking the game was amazing and the Dreamcast’s Tekken beater in my opinion. Namco is a great company, they are behind the success of the Playstation with bringing out ridge racer on launch and what a game. So knowing Namco was behind this game I rushed too the shops to and purchased my copy for £39.99.
  • Pros: beautiful graphics, fast sound
  • Cons: can get frustrating on higher levels

an excellent sequel to a great dreamcast original

  • Excerpt: I bought this game about 3 months ago for my gamecube,as I had already owned the Dreamcast classic of this great 3D weapons based beatem-up. Basically stripped down this is a beatem-up albeit with weapons,but that would be taking a very cynical and overly genralised view ,the beauty of this game is the way all levels of players can enjoy it ,be it button bashing amateurs ,to people who have spent hours and hours perfecting counters and special moves.
  • Pros: nice selection of characters and locations and Link from zelda is playable !
  • Cons: Doesn ` t  feel quite as memorable or fun as Soul calibur on Dreamcast

Calibur 2 bares its Soul - but is it enough?

  • Excerpt: I'm not a big fan of 'beat em ups' in fact the last one I played was Street Fighter on the SNES. But SC2 came with such high recommendations that it seemed wrong not own it or at least have played it. Does it really live up to the hype? Well overall yes, any fighting game that keeps me playing for hours on end must have something going for it. The graphics are superb arcade quality and the sound effects are spot on.
  • Pros: excellent graphics & good one player modes
  • Cons: is there enough depth to keep you coming back?

  • Excerpt: A game which was hihgly aticipated after the great success of the first one in the series. There is a wide variety of characters to chose from each with their own different fighting style and charachteristics. The game is pretty massive with lots to unlock and the fast paced action and superb graphics will make you 'finish' the game.
  • Pros: fast paced, action packed fighter
  • Cons: you may need a friend to enjoy the full potential

Soul calibur 2... buy it?

deamon, Ciao
19 January 2004
  • Excerpt: This game is worth buying if you like fighting genres, it has a massive amount of weapons, with 11 for each character. The choice of characters is great because their are many different styles the characters use, such as destructive, samurai and ninja-style. The sound and graphics are top quality for gamecube and you get cool speeches from the characters at the start and end of a battle like "Don't cry" "Massacre" "is their no other way" "I'll crush you till you squirm"...
  • Pros: Large Variety of weapons, characters and good story .
  • Cons: Longlivity, its good until you complete it .
