Summary: I loved this game as a teenager and this is my reasoning for ordering this game. However, the format is not as I remember it to be. Maybe I will order the first one. What happened to the combat rings?
Summary: Soul Calibur Legends follows the story of Siegfried, and expounds upon the story between the games Soul Blade and Soul Calibur. Along the way you meet several more characters from the Soul Calibur Universe. Ultimately, how you view this game depends purely on your preferences. Soul Calibur Legends shares characters and a storyline from the Soul Calibur series - that's it.
Summary: I haven't played this myself but my boyfriend said he really liked it so I guess that's whats matters. Although he did sort of stop playing it after a short while and he hasn't played it again since (it's been some time since I bought it) so it's not the best game I've ever gotten him.
Great if you like plot and well backgrounded stories, but not so good for Arcade gamers.

Excerpt: Having played Soul Calibur on the Playstation2 I thought buying the new Wii game would be an excellent idea. At the time it was priced £25, which was reasonable for a newly released Wii game at the time. Plot Here's where the game differs from the PS2 version - it actually has plot! Its actually one long campaign, which you win through completing the scenario fights, unlike the PS2 version which was mostly an arcade game.
Summary: There are other reviews that give a lot of detailed information so I'll keep this short. BE WARNED - This is not the traditional Soul Calibur fighting style of one-on-one 3D combat. This is a run-along beat-em-up, which simply means it is a platform fighting game where you run around killing monsters, in 3D.
A few hours cheap entertainment, leaving you with a stronger wrist from all the waving.

Excerpt: I adored Soul Calibur 2 on the Gamecube, and when I saw this I decided to pick it up. I didn't realise when I bought it that this is not, unlike the other Soul Calibur games, a beat-em-up game like Street Fighter etc. Instead, it is a third person adventure, designed especially to take advantage of the Wii's unique controls.

Conclusion: When i first started playing this game i had mixed feelings about it, the gameplay is good and the new controlls povide a new experiance. After my initial excitment however, i was dissapointed. The graphics are not good enough for the wii, they look like a psp and thats not an exageration (the character models can look good but the scenery is poor).
