Soul Calibur 3 is unsurprisingly part of the series of Soul Calibur games, which are essentially 1-1 fighting games where you fight enemies one at a time in best of 3 round fights. As with most Fighting games each character has their own story for why they are in the game in this case they revolve around the sword Soul Calibur which is a holy sword created to battle another sword called Soul Edge (itís an evil sword). This game follows on from Soul Calibur 2 and continues the story of Siegfried in his quest to destroy Soul Edge, however in this chapter there is another character who is controlling Siegfriedís progress and wants the sword for his own reasons. There are Read the complete review

In my heart no fighting game will ever top Soul Calibur 3! Even with the release of Soul Calibur 4, Soul Calibur 3 is still a masterpiece and although there are improvements made in SC4 they take nothing away from this game. The storyline of the game revolves around the idea of two powerfull swords, Soul Edge and Soul Calibur and as always the cast of characters are all fighting to destroy or gain pocession of the swords. All the favourites (apart from Heichachi are back) and graphics are pushed to the max, a great way to end the series on the PS2 before its transition to PS3. What i loved most about this game is the longetivity of it, there is so ... Read the complete review

Namco Presents...SOUL CALIBUR 3. This time Soul Caliber has come exclusively to PS2 which will dissapoint fans who has only got an Xbox or Gamecube and brought Soul Caliber 2. But if you got SC2 for PS2 then you won't be dissapointed. The controls are a quite simple. You have a Vertical Slash (Square), a Vertical Slash (Triangle) and a Kick Button (Circle) plus a Guard Button (X) to protect yourself. You won't struggle with them. Many modes have been added since SC2 including Tales Of Souls, Chronicles Of The Sword and Soul Arena... TALES OF SOULS-Tales of souls is like arcade mode. You pick a character and play along their ... Read the complete review

Soul Calibur 3 like the previous titles is your button mash game on crack. It's got lots of combos and the pace is quick so it's easy to pick up and start having fun right away, and as you play and learn new moves, the fun only accumulates. The make your own character feature introduced in this version is a pretty awesome feature. My friend and I made the most hilarious and then most awesome people we could and duked it out for hours. The only complaint I really have about this is I felt the sickle and chain weapon was a bit overpowered for the button masher. it seems like pressing any combination of buttons performs this massive wide spread attacks that make ...

It is always preferable t review a good game rather than a bad one and fortunately Soul Calibur 3 continues the tradition of quality games from this franchise. For those that have not come across it before it is a one on one fighting game just like Tekken or Mortal Combat however in Soul Calibur (SC3 from now on) you get to fight with different weapons instead of just fists and feet. The format to the game has not really changed over the years with each new game bringing with it a few extra characters and some slight changes on the periphery. In SC3 you get a total of 30 fighters to battle with however at the outset quite a few of these are locked ... Read the complete review
