BryanM and Th3UniQu3, you both are trash.
''Ridiculous AI and terrible balance ruins this game down to the core. There is no redeeming this piece of trash with it's stupid psychic AI that will never fail to block EVERY SINGLE **** ATTACK you throw at it. 100%. It is programmed to **** you up.''
Th3UniQu3, it is not programmed to mess you up. You know what messes us up? Your comment. Quit hating this game, ****.
''If you own soul Calibur II then don't even bother. This game is just a rip off of both 1 and II. But if you do not then wait until it goes down in price.''
BryanM, this game is not a ripoff of both the past SC games. You look like a ripoff, moron.
Like I said, you both are pathetic.
It's not so different from the last one if you just consider the core gameplay to be the main attraction. The new features are just like icing on the cake. If you can live with that and know that going in, SC3 will provide with a healthy challenge.
Soul Calibur III is the best SC in the whole franchise.
Its innovation, graphics, setting, story for each character, a ton of content for singleplayer mode really made this game stand out the most. I remember how many hours I've spent with this game, there wasn't one thing that let me know. A true sequel to Soul Calibur II.
The number of characters, costumes, character creation with neat content to it, plenty of hidden characters with their OWN custom move set which for some reason people like to forget about. A shame.
It's clear to me that Soul Calibur VI tried to go back to this era and return to its roots but nonetheless I wish they would faithfully remaster this game or bring it for every possible system with an HD support.
That being said, this is the best fighting game for Offline content. And the fact that it didn't get the support it needed in its time, just shows how disgusting this overrated tournament community can be. A true shame. Soul Calibur IV and V were a downgrade compared to this.
+Plenty of characters to pick from each with alternative costumes
+Branching storyline for each character where you can make small but much-appreciated choices for increased immersion
+Chornicles of the Sword where you create your own character and play a mini-strategy + fighting style game having its own story sets and characters. You level up, gather better weapons, unlock characters, currency in the game and much more in this neat game mode
+Lots of game modes including Arcade, Survival and a couple of others where you fight over-powered bosses
+Music is great
+Stages are awesome and memorable minus a few ones
+Voice acting is solid, the game can be played with English or Japanese Dub
+Combat system is fluent, faster than its previous entry
+Unique move sets yet basic/nerfed for character creation. While they can't really go up against the main characters it's a nice addition to the game in order to provide identity to the characters, immersion and offering new moves to the game making some fights be more generic rather than just the super moves of each main character. Completely dropped in future games sadly.
+The Menu and the Opening of the game are the best ones in the entire series. Nothing like it anywhere else
- Some OP characters are not unlockable unless you use a cheat device. It's not relevant or important but it would be fun to have everything available
- Chronicles of the Sword doesn't have too much replayability after the initial playthrough. Could've been improved upon in its difficulty
Is the best game of all SoulCalibur series. This game has a excellent history mode, the best of all saga, the form that choose the path based on our decisions, which affects who we face. And not only the main history, all single player mode is very amazing, the mode Chronicles Of the Sword is spectacular, this secondary story mode mixed a RPG and tactics game mechanics with a fighting combats classic of series. The same with a Quick Play an Missions Mode. Also the Character Creation is a something splendid, being a game of PS2. The game lacks a multiplayer mode, though for the time the game has release is not necessary. possibly for a remaster we can have multiplayer.
It has good visuals for the time and the soundtrack is great, also the game is quite deep, but with such an unbalanced roster all of the pro's soon dwindle.
This game is not for those who want a balanced and learn able game. This is for those who enjoy visuals (if PS2 graphics suffice now) and not going far in regards to learning to get better.
Ridiculous AI and terrible balance ruins this game down to the core. There is no redeeming this piece of trash with it's stupid psychic AI that will never fail to block EVERY SINGLE **** ATTACK you throw at it. 100%. It is programmed to **** you up.
