    Developers should warn this is multiplayer only game, almost nothing to do in single. In something like story mode there aren't any real fights, just tutorial with tasks like block and attack in 2 seconds. There aren't even basic options like difficulty, time and number of rounds. Because of this in quick fight mode you always have to win 3 rounds to win a match and you have a Developers should warn this is multiplayer only game, almost nothing to do in single.

Because of this in quick fight mode you always have to win 3 rounds to win a match and you have a very stupid random difficulty. Expect situations like having 5 very easy opponents in a row who just stand and do nothing, but when you restart quick fight your first opponent may be so hard, that you will loose in a few seconds. I was expecting at least game like Tekken DR, but it unfortunately turned out to be a big disappointment. Only good things are graphics and character customization. If you are single player only, it's probably isn't worth buying. Expand

    Has some good aspects, it can be fun... if you have tons of friends ready to play. No single player... the gaunlet mode its just a joke... just... avoid at any cost... better buy Dissidia for a change.

  1. Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny effectively manages to translate the home console experience into a portable one, preserving both the original gameplay and characters. Nice to play and to look at, thanks to the great graphics, it has a limited longevity, though.
  2. Unfortunately, the main single-player mode feels like an extended tutorial, and the multiplayer options are limited to ad-hoc. Fortunately, there are plenty of options for customization, and the trials and versus modes are always fun.
  3. It may only be fans of the series who will take advantage of everything the game has to offer, but the excellent job Namco have done in bringing Soulcalibur to the PSP is clear for everyone to see.
