    Soul Calibur II

    I got Soul Calibur II on the PS-2. Even though the game was improved in comparison to Soul Calibur on DC, I didn’t enjoy the game at all!
    It just didn’t introduce anything new or revolutionary, compared to the DC version.

    The music sucked! It was nowhere near as good as the Soul Calibur music, or the awesome arranged audio tracks, of the original Soul Blade on PSX, which had the best music out of the 3 in my opinion.

    The gameplay wasn’t that great & the moves just didn’t impress me!
    The story mode was so boring & uninspiring. I just couldn’t be bothered to finish the extra story mode and unlock Berserker, Lizardman, Assassin. The missions where so cheap I got bored and stopped!
    My favourite character Cervantes was greatly underpowered compared to the other 2 games!

    As for the Levels, they were very poorly designed, compared to the DC levels.
    The only cool looking level was the Thai palace next to the river.

    Why did they use this old man, Heihatsi? He looks like he’s wearing false teeth! Old Guy! He doesn’t even have swords.
    I’ve seen the X-Box version. It didn’t impress me either. (I don’t like Spawn either)
    Link on the GCube might have been cool, but other than that, I think it would have been as boring as the other 2 versions.

    Necrid was the only cool character. That guy can pound some kick-ass combos!

    Raphael, what a Gay character!

    My favourite:
    1. Soul Blade – PSX (Had the best game-play & music)
    2. Soul Calibur – DC (Great and revolutionary control & gameplay, but
    not as good music as the 1st)
    3. Soul Calibur II – (Just a cheap excuse for a sequel, nothing too special)

    I got it for £20 on XBox.

    Me and my bro like having a bash at it and playing "levels and lives" on the story mode.

    I enjoy it and the visuals are quite pleasing too.

    Ah yes, Soul Calibur II, much better on X-box than on ps2, and gamecube. I spent about an hour at HMV playing it on all 3 consoles, and X-box was by far the best.

    I had it for ps2, was severly disapointed it just lacked some of the sparkle the dc version always had, they'd played to much with it imo.

    Traded it in and got tony hawks underground.........now theres a game

    *feels a review coming on*

    Sould calibur 2 is a bad joke compared with the dreamcast version. Nearly everything about it is much poorer than the original game. Even the graphics . Most of all i was miffed off by the arenas and slowdown... SLOWDOWN in a beat em up bah
