Summary: SoulCalibur III is a game everyone MUST own for their PlayStation 2 library. Even though I'm not in it for the customization, it does offer a ton of articles for your personalized characters to wear. One of the most outstanding gamemodes in this game is Chronicles of the Sword; it's a basic strategy mode where you have to capture bases and fight other soldiers.
Summary: Good game, but I recommend soul calibur 2. The characters are all screwed up. You don't get the same experience as you do in soul calibur 2. If you are trying to decide between soul calibur 2 and 3 I recommend getting soul calibur 2.
Summary: Soul Calibur 3 is a good game. I feel 2 was superior in gameplay but this is a worthy sequel. The Tell of Souls mode can be ridiculously hard at times. Character creation is great. If your a fan of the series go pick it up.
Summary: Alright, I love Soul Calibur. The graphism are just great even for a PS2 game, the different level are still pretty similar to the previous game but the landscape are not really the first argument to buy this game. The diversity of the characters available is pretty good, and the songs are enjoyable even though they are really repetitive. Now the rest, in order to unlock all the weapons, armor, bonuses, etc, you will have to be determined.
Summary: Soul Calibur III is the fourth entry in the "Soul" series by Namco and is without a doubt the most ambitious of the three. The third game adds all new characters, and modifies all of the returning ones. There are new modes, different shops where you can buy items, armor and weapons. Heck you can even build your character (to look like KOS-MOS from the Xenosaga series if you want). Though there are a lot of new additions, many of these feel tacked on.
Summary: When I first saw this game, I thought it was the same thing as Tekken and Mortal Combat. It does have this mode (versus mode) but it also has other things as well. My two boys enjoy the fact that they can create and arm characters. You choose what type of character you want to create, be it a male or female character, and then add all the attire (armor, helmets, weapons, etc.
