    I guarantee you'll be amazed at how phenomenal this game looks, and you won't be able to put it down.
  2. 100
    The number one reason to buy a Dreamcast.
  3. 100
    Without a doubt the best looking fighting game ever, with nuances like muscle rippling, facial expressions of pain, fear, and anger, and caustic lighting effects that dazzle the eyes.
  4. The great gameplay, large variety of options, and the absolutely astounding visuals combine to make this game near perfect.
  5. "Soul Calibur's"only detectable flaw... while professed SC masters may think that they can manhandle any selectable character, the ugly truth is that some of the game's characters are completely over- and under-powered.
  6. The graphics, particularly the character models and animation, are stunning. The fighting is both strategic and intense, fun to watch and fun to play.
  7. "Soul Calibur" revolutionizes (3D Fighting) with amazing graphics, intriguing characters and an incredibly smooth 60 frame per second game engine.

    The best fighting game I've ever played by far! It's got everything; eye-candy graphics, great characters & some of the most amazing moves I've seen in a long time. It even seems to have a plot (of sorts) which I really like; the characters have real depth & even a personal history. The thing I like about it most of all are all the hidden extras you uncover when you complete the game. It gives you a real added incentive to carry on playing. I would personally recommend this game to anyone. Collapse

    It is one of my favorite fighting games of all time. Who doesn't love this game? It had incredible graphics back in 1999. you gotta love the fluidity moves and attacks of each character. the mission is battle is awesome that you can play various minigames like tournaments, fighting lizard men, training with edgemaster, poison modes, etc. the soundtrack makes this game more epic and has great atmosphere. this game is never wounded and its soul never burns in my book.

    What is it with people drooling over this turd? Soul Calibur is an awful game, even if it looks great. I agree with the guy who says Project Justice is much better! Expand
