Summary: Soul Calibur II is an excellent game, but the Xbox Version, I daresay, is terrible. The special guest, Spawn, is a horrible fighter. Namco could have done better to pick a better guest star for the Xbox. The graphics is way better then that off the Virtua Fighters, the Tekkens, and the Bloody Roar Series, but that is the only good part, and thats why it is worth one star.
Summary: This game is basically a nicer-looking but watered-down version of SC1, and it's ultimately not something that's worth $$. For one thing, many characters are locked, and in order to get all the characters, Namco forces us to humor their poor imaginations by sending us into "weapon master mode", where mission after boring mission must be completed in order to unlock new features, including the characters. There's no other way to do it. It gets worse.
