    This game was amazing. it was the first one I could find where the wii controllers actually worked. When you swing left, the guy swings left.This game was amazing. it was the first one I could find where the wii controllers actually worked. When you swing left, the guy swings left. When you swing right, h swings right. Whoever is putting out reviews that gave this game a 14 can just go screw a goat. seriously. Full Review »

    Good game let down by only a coupe of flaws, it's still good solid fun.

    I love this game. I recently got a secondhand Wii. It has 40 odd games and some classics like Mario Galaxy etc.. But which game do I like toI love this game. I recently got a secondhand Wii. It has 40 odd games and some classics like Mario Galaxy etc.. But which game do I like to play most? This one. Soul Calibur has easy to pick up and responsive controls- the onscreen sword responds very well to the wii remote and num chuck.

    The graphics are good, I found the story quite lightweight but entertaining. It is a good workout to play- I finish after a 20 minute session with a light sweat from swinging the remote about so much.

    As a 32 year old gamer I have played a lot of serious PC games and have lately come to appreciate the casual fun that a fun sword swinging game like this offers.

    I would give it 8 but seeing as how this game has so many miserable ratings I am upping it to 10 to push the meta up a bit. Enjoy!
