For me, the Dreamcast is a fantastic console, and has probably got the best range of quality titles for the money you pay – everything is a lot less expensive than the PlayStation 2, but in my view the range of games is better and so is the quality. One such title, which will undoubtedly get Tekken fans in a heated fuss, is the “other” mighty Namco fighting machine – Soul Calibur!I have never before playing this game, and indeed to this day, played anything so fresh, so fast and so fantastically well created. The graphics alone will blow your mind, but take your position on the sofa or armchair and let your virtual prowess be unleashed in almighty Read the complete review

Here’s another review for you, after I had update my Crazy Taxi and Sonic Adventure opinions, I felt it only fair to include Soul Calibur as well. It’s one of only a few games to get that prestigious 10/10 award, simply because it is faultless. There is nothing at all that I can complain about with Soul Calibur I guess a lot of you all thought this too (it’s a top 5 selling Dreamcast game). So what is so great about this Namco fighting game? Let me explain! Hope you’ve got the coffee ready! Back in 1999, around 6months before the release of Dreamcast I was browsing the web looking for information on Sega’s new wonder console, and I ... Read the complete review

An old classic comes to the dreamcast and believe me it has not failed to impress. As the arcade version had great graphics, very fast gameplay and a wide range of players with there own fighting technique. The dreamcast version is what i say a complete copy. On the dreamcast it has all the qualitys of the arcade game but what impressed me most was the amount of modes they have managed to cram in to an already bursting at the seem games. Here are some guides to the players: - Rock is slow but a powerful character who if mastered is probably unbeatable his we upon is a huge axe a bit like astaroth's. Seung mina is a fast character. She has a very ... Read the complete review

Every fighting series had the title that started it all, and whilst a good portion of these games don't get it right on the first try, Soulcalibur on the Dreamcast unequivocably does, and it has even been argued that the numerous sequels (the fourth title most recently coming out last Summer), have, despite vast technological advancement, never lived up to the greatness of the original game, which is among the very few games that IGN have ever given a 10 rating. What made the game so initially popular was the 8-Way Run system, in which players could actually run in 8 directions, whereas previous fighting games, and still the vast majority today, only allow ...

Despite being a proud owner of a Dreamcast I never really saw the attraction to the Soul Calibur brand. After all, Soul Calibur is just Tekken with swords... isn't it? Well that's like saying Bloody Roar is Tekken with the ability to turn into a monster mid-way through the battle. The use of swordplay is the single biggest edition to this brand of fighting game and sets it way apart from the rest. The storyline is the quest for a sword, you buy various weapons for your character, each with their own strengths and weaknesses and the majority of your moves, from throws to kicks, involves your sword in someway. Being a Soul Calibur virgin means ... Read the complete review
