Summary: This is a great game, it has a great story, good single player mode but most importantly it was unlike no other game back then. All the new Soul Calibur games arent quiet like this one, SC 2 had the best voices, the biggest Astaroth, Nightmare was more badass, plus Spawn was the best speacial guest character too.
Conclusion: Soul Calibur for the Dreamcast was considered to be a classic to this day. With brilliant graphics, an insane amount of extra modes, and promising gameplay, it was no surprise that it garnered the attention it did. This might be why Namco both released a sequel and put it on all three consoles. Soul Calibur was better than its prequel, Soul Blade, by leaps and bounds so it was a little tough to expect that same kind of jump with the sequel.
Summary: The game is clean looking, the xbox version got spawn, which was not as interesting as the gamecube and ps2 versions,but the xbox version benefits from being cleaner graphically, in comparison to Soul Calibur 1, it has a more rounded cartoony look to the charactors. If you like the series, it is well worth buying.
Excerpt: Being a massive fan of soul blade ( playstation one) when i saw this namco product in the shops i just had to buy it and rush home to play it In all fairness the game is just another fighting game but i love it!!!. It has all my favourite characters from soul blade plus the better ones from tekkan aswell. The graphics are okay - certain games make me sick such as spyro etc but this one is fine .
Summary: This game is so underrated it is unbelievable. It really is one of the best fighting games I have ever played (which have included street fighter, mortal kombat and the tekken series). First off, the number of moves available in this game is huge as there are around 15 characters, each boasting 100+ moves. The weapon-based fighting really makes it a lot more exciting than the regular punch, kick, and grab combos.
Summary: that is right the best fighting game is here soul calibur 2 has it all style good looks fluid gameplay new characters and the old ones it is amazing what each individual character can do there are so many attacking movements and combos you can do with them it will leave you dizzy and sore thumbs, the sore thumbs i can vouch for this game has what other fighting games lack and that you will have to find out for yourself you want action supberb graphics and kick butt moves...
Summary: Just like the title says the best fighter ever, i got to play the first 1 on ps1 when it was called soul blade, and now the new 1 is even better, part to do with the power of the xbox. There are so many characters to choose from but there are more to unlock in the game, also there is a good few game types to play like time attack and story where u can also get extra weapons and different cloths for your fighters.
