Summary: This is the only Soul Calibur game I have ever played and boy it was lacking. It wasn't bad, per say, but it wasn't good either. The game tries to spew plot at you but it just doesn't stick. My biggest problem with this game is the very annoying and repetitive layout. The mission trail style got old really quickly; I liked them in old RTS games (but then the missions were more fun). It just felt like a long to-do list--one that's out of order!
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: Ok. overall its a decent game but it is too repetetive. All you do is whack hack with your remote and you beat everything that way and your arm gets tired from it then all the enemies and even the bosses are repeated several times over which gets really boring after five minutes and the story line is relatively short. So if you like games that are repetetive then this game is for you, but if your like me you don't and i would not recommend this game to anyone.
Summary: I will have to say, that this game is slightly fun. The main problem is, this is not Soul Calibur. The story line is even barely the same. This is more of a search around game and not a side to side fighting game. You basically walk around and kill whatever, and after a while, the levels seem to get very repetitive. If you want Soul Calibur, don't get this game.
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.
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.
Pros: Strong Quest plotline, good graphics, fun controls .
Cons: Can be a little slow, no longer arcade style, poor multiplayer modes .
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.
Summary: 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. Instead, it is a third person adventure, designed especially to take advantage of the Wii's unique controls.
