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: Soul Calibur III was the third game I purchased in this genre of fighting, and it is by far the best I've played. Of course, there are always problems to be dealt with, so these were mine: -Frustrating interface- The menu interface at times was a little frustrating to navigate, as to get to certain options, you'd have to backtrack all the way to the beginning and work your way over. After a while you start to get annoyed. -CPU AI can get VERY difficult.
Summary: Namco has done again with their latest incarnation of the Soulcalibur franchise. Classic and new fighters (four) clash in battle to claim the two legendary swords. Select your fighter and continue in an epic quest in "Tales of Souls" or enjoy the new real-time strategy of "Chronicles of the Sword." Featuring new battle stages and music, Soulcalibur delivers hours of entertainment with a new character creation mode as well as many other modes that the series in known for.
Summary: Stunning graphics, great characters, interesting weapons and an easy-to-master fighting system make this Soul Calibur the best of the bunch so far. And let's not forget the incredibly deep create a fighter feature. If you've played the other games in this series, you know what to expect (Voldo). You know the fighting is based around weapons, and there is an intriguing back story for all the fighters. A lot of care was put into the creation of this game and it shows.
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.
Reasonable contents... but difficulty level may be high

Summary: Soul Calibur III is just fine for game itself. It shows reasonable improvements from SC2, and have many collectible features that player can spend time for. However, difficulty level may be a bit(or too) high for absolute beginner of Soul Calibur. If you're a beginner, you may have to invest some time to practice your character to play game smoothly. Overall, SC3 is a worthy title for fighting game lovers, but is more for skilled ones in SC series.
