Upon release, Soul Calibur was by quite a comfortable distance the best beat 'em up in existence, though fate dictated that it would be missed by a great majority of gamers. Part of the reason for this was the timing of its release; emerging in the shadow of the more-recognisable beat 'em up classic Tekken 3 in 1999, it also didn't help that it was a release limited only to the Dreamcast, as no other consoles around at the time were powerful enough to run it. Nevertheless, it sported a graphics engine so far ahead of its time that it took most developers half a decade to catch up on arguably superior hardware, and gameplay so fast, fluid and perfect to control that it's .

Made by Namco and this one in 2003, it is a fighting beat 'em up game similar to Tekken but so different in many ways. It plays the same in that you just verse a character with a health bar and do different rounds, but there are differences. The controls are far easier than at least in Tekken Tag which provides great gameplay, and this is a lot faster paced and the weapons you can use allow more varied gameplay. I still don't think it's as good though. Soul Calibur, as far as I know is an 'evil sword'. Modes. ****** It pretty much has the same fighting modes as most beat em up games. You've got the arcade mode where your character has to battle ... Read the complete review

Soul Calibur II is a fantastic game for the Playstation 2. I loved it when I played it recently and found it to be very addictive. This game is made by Namco and they seem to have brought another classic with this game. The is the sequel to the popular Soul Calibur and sometimes sequels aren't always that good but this one it. In addtion this version is multi-platform. You get your own exclusive character with each platform. The Playstation 2 version gives you Heihachi Mishima as your character who is the evil head of the Mishima corporation from the Tekken series. He has no weapons and fights just with his bare hands alone. The Xbox version gets ... Read the complete review

Introduction : There are three game console for the SC2 namely Game Cube version, PS2 version and X-Box. They have almost the same or identical regarding the game-play, graphics and sound. The only difference is that somehow each game console has its own "special guest fighter" (characters taken from other games). Although I envy those who have the Game Cube version as they have the best of all the three game console releases in terms of its "special guest fighters". But I got PS2, so I'll focus my review on what I know and experienced on this game. In PS2 version, you can play the classic Namco character Heihachi Mashima (his from the famous ...

Soul Caliber 2 has several parts to the game, with arcade, knock out stages and weapon master mode being really good. Characters are good are the game provides opportunity to improve their look weapons and armour. Unlocking characters is easy but one was impossible to find, which was lizardman. Which was dissapointing. Easy to master and fun for both sexes. Has a rating of 16+ due to the violence used but have played it with children as young as 8 and the violence is not ...
