Soul Calibur II Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Soul Calibur II is the best 3D fighter to date on any console. It provides a level of gameplay suitable for rookies to masters and will provide the long lasting appeal that has been missing from recent fighters. In my first two days of playing this title, I found it very hard to put down and even spent two hours in the practice mode trying to master my control of Ivy.

Soul Calibur 2

The Next Level
2 September 2003
  • Excerpt: Most of the significant differences fans will especially notice are actually more cosmetic than technical. Each of the original characters return in search of the phantom Soul Edge weapon, including such favorites as Mitsurugi, Ivy and Taki (whose assets seem to have grown since the last time I remember). By now you've probably heard that only two of the characters can truly be considered fundamentally new.

Soul Calibur 2 Review

AtomicGamer
1 September 2003
  • Excerpt: Few could deny that Soul Calibur was one of the greatest fighting games of all time - the biggest problem with it was probably one of exposure, as it only was ever released in the arcades and on Sega's ill-fated Dreamcast console. Namco has known for quite a while that they had a goldmine on their hands with the Soul Calibur name, and they've finally delivered a sequel to US soil for all 3 major consoles.

  • Conclusion: Soul Calibur II is a refined version of the original game; of course any fans of fighting games are going to eat this up. It would be very hard to deny the great package Namco has put together. The Xbox finally has a game up to and exceeding Dead or Alive 3. It only took a few years, but Soul Calibur II is outstanding. Get this baby, and slice em’ all to they fall.

Soul Calibur 2

Active Network
20 December 2004
  • Summary: "The main difference that people who have played both Soul Calibur and Soul Calibur 2 will notice is the major graphical overhaul the game has had. All of the returning characters you get to play as look different, all of the levels are new and some of the animations have been enhanced." "For many people, Soul Calibur on the Dreamcast, released way back in 1999 is still considered to be one of the all time greatest fighting games.
  • Pros: Lots of game types, Good Graphics
  • Cons: If you are not a fighting fan, you won't like it.

Xbox Gazette
20 March 2005
  • Conclusion: Que dire d’autres a part que SoulCalibur2 est une pure merveille mais que par rapport au numéro 1 il n’apporte pas de grandes améliorations : on notera juste des graphismes plus fins et retravaillés surtout au niveau des Arènes, une bande son en 5.1 et des armes en plus grand nombre sans oublier un mode Master Weapons beaucoup plus long que dans le premier épisode sur Dreamcast.
  • Pros: peu d'innovations par rapport au premier épisode, musiques pas assez variées, certains coups trop facile à réaliser
  • Cons: graphismes somptueux, énormément de bonus, beaucoup d'armes, mode solo long, arènes de combat

  • Conclusion: Vous l'aurez compris, SoulCalibur II s'impose comme la nouvelle référence des jeux de bastons avec une réalisation technique extraordinaire et un plaisir de jeu incomparable. Même les réticents aux jeux de baston pourront apprécier! Un must à posséder absolument.
  • Pros: Tout
  • Cons: Rien

Soul Calibur 2

GameCaptain

  • Conclusion: Leider knapp an einer 90ger Wertung und einem Award durch zu wenig Neuerungen vorbeigeschrappt. Trotzdem: Es ist ein fantastisches Beat em Up mit intuitiver Steuerung, sehr guter Grafik und coolen Charakteren.
