Summary: I was ecstatic to receive my copy of this game. I played the first one on Dreamcast and then the second on the Xbox and was excited for this one when i saw it for sale. The game is a pitiful reminder of the glory that was Soul Calibur 2. This and the Fifth are the only games in this franchise I didn't like. As for the shipper, everything was fine. I received it in a timely manner and there were no deffects to speak of.
Summary: Ok, so I bought Soul Calibur 3 after buying and absolutely disliking Soul Calibur 2, so therefore I guess it reasons that my disappointment with this game is my own fault. First I am going to start off with the good aspects. The game is beautifully crafted, the backgrounds are absolutely magnificent, the characters are beautifully developed and the graphics and frame rates are by all token beyond amazing.
Summary: A lot of people have complained about the female characters in this game being hyper-sexualized. I have a different complaint. In Soul Calibur 3, the characters' fighting capabilities are unfairly skewed in the female characters' favor. All the big, tough looking guy characters are clumsy and slow, while all the female characters are lightning fast, can block any attack, break any block, and their hits cause twice as much damage. Am I the only guy who has noticed this?
Summary: Soul Calibur, and its sequel were two of the best fighting games to come out this generation, but they took a leap backwards releasing the 3rd. Making a game that was pick up and play, then turning it into something that you have to memorize every move, and every counter move was a mistake. I tried many times to give this a chance but after a week of just being angry when i play it, I figured I'd get rid of it.
