Summary: The key points to this review are under this paragraph; so if you don't feel like reading this, then skip to the points I have provided. I have never played a SoulCalibur game that I did not like...until I bought this useless piece of crap. It is NOTHING like ANY of the other games and there are only (literally) a handful of characters to choose from.
Summary: I did not like this game. I wanted to fight more. I ended up trading it in before playing it for a while. I probably played it for a few hours before getting rid of it. Might rent it some day to see how it goes.
Summary: I can't say that I hate the game itself. I think I probably hate the platform. This game forces you to use the nunchuck to play. I'm not a fan of that and don't play this game. I'd tried this game on another platform and enjoyed it well enough to try it on my game system. Did not know I had to use the nunchuck. Will likely trade it in or sell it due to the need to use the nunchuck.
Summary: When I first heard of this game I thought, Wow a non fighting Soul Calibur game would be great, and my son was ecstatic about it being a fan of SC 2 and 3. Well it's not what I expected. You start out as Siegfried and you hack and slash your way through level after level, fighting the same enemies each level. Nothing wrong with hacking and slashing, especially with the Wii remote.
Summary: I never thought I would give a game in the Soul Calibur series a bad rating, but here we are. Soul Calibur Legends is a disappointing game on a number of levels (no pun intended), and would be purchased only by absolutely die-hard Soul Calibur fans who must have the next game. The past Soul Calibur games have been fighting games - innovative games with some of the best gameplay, character design, extras, and graphics anywhere in the video game world.
Summary: This is not a figthing game. It is a sword bashing soul calibur wannabe... The story line is weak. The graphics for a system like Wii is acceptible. The camera throughout the game is one of the worst that I have ever experienced. Gameplay is ok, but you get tired after doing the same things all the way. Please read the reviews and do not buy this. Namco Bandai should have worked harder if it wants to create a good game out of a legendary fighting game...

Summary: Soul Caliber is a great fighting games series with a very loyal fan base. With Soul Caliber Legends, they tried to convert the series into an RPG. RGP fans will probably find it lacking, but Soul Caliber fans will appreciate the new look at their world. First, the gameplay. In single player / campaign mode you go through a series of minor battles up until you hit a boss, like many typical RPGs. You swing the Wii remote around like a sword in order to make your attacks.
Summary: I have always been a fan of the Soul Games. When I was a kid I loved Soul Blade and have owned every game after that. So when I noticed Soulcalibur Legends at my local store, I snatched it up right away. As I played this game, I realized something. The Soul games are the best fighting games I have ever played, it just doesn't translate well to the adventure genre.
Summary: We picked up this game and found it disappointing. The controls, instead of being innovative and fun, were awkward at times and got tiring. The gameplay doesn't give anything new either and actually is kinda boring. Save your money for the real Soul Calibur fighting game!
Summary: Vorwort: Wer Soul Claibur hört und sich ein wenig in der Videospiele Welt auskennt, denkt sicher gleich ein ein grandioses Beat em up, bei dem sich Mittelalterliche Gestalten miteinander prügeln. Nachdem Soul Calibur , der letzte Teil für eine Nintendo Konsole war, wurde es zeitweise still. Auch wenn die Wii später keinen Teil 3-5 bekam, erhielten sie ihren eigenen Ableger. Doch das Prinzip war ein komplett anderes.
Pros: kann zeitweise bei Laune halten
Cons: das gesamte Konzept passt nicht zu Soul Calibur
