5.0 out of 5 stars Most amazing fighting game, ever? Read on..., 28 Aug. 2003
This review is from: SoulCalibur II (GameCube) (Video Game)
The original Soul Calibur on the Dreamcast was the most addictive, mind-boggling beat'em up game of all time. So from the sucess of Soul Calibur, Namco have decided to make a sequel. Is it worth your money or does it deserve the boot? Let's find out, shall we...
Like it's predecessor, it boasts amazing graphics. The character models are superb, fighting and reacting the way you would think they should. A huge amount of detail has been put into every little possible touch, like hair blowing in the wind, or the characters' facial expressions after being whacked, stabbed etc. There's also the stunning backdrops, that aren't just 2D, but full-blown 3D. Gorgeous architecture can be seen on the building, water running smoothly in a quaint little river, everything imaginable is there. But enough about it's looks...
The gameplay. Good or Bad? Good. No matter what console your playing it on, you will lose yourself in the controls. At times you'll forget the control pad's even there!
The longetivity of the game is HUGE. Aside from all the normal beat'em up options (Versus mode, Survival etc.), Soul Calibur 2 has the fantastic 'Weapons Master' mode, where your a character of your choice, battling your way through an adventure type mini-game. Of course it's not just fighting. You have little challenges like trying to stay on a platform before the wind blows you off. You then gain experience which then can be used to buy an absolute truck-load of weapons to equip to your character for fighting (There must be 1000's!!).
Of course, it's up to you if you want the game or not, but when you get this much fun, quality and longetivity in a game, you'd be a fool not to own it.
