So they did the HD version of the poorest quality version? (PS2). Good thing I still own my GC version, looks better than this, they cut out the blur that hides the flaws, looks kinda bleh. Resident Evil 4 HD did a good job of making it look clean without looking worse (imo).

Soul Calibur 3 would have been the better choice IMO, the second one just felt very lacking in content.


But what about Character customisation? Character builder? Chronicles of the sword mode? Alternate paths in story mode, and arguable the best combat and line up of original fighters the series has seen to date?

Don't get me wrong, I really liked Soul Calibur 2 on GC, playing as Link was awesome, but I always felt the game was one of the weakest in the series. Soul Calibur 3 just feels more nostalgic to me.

TALIM!!! played SC2 and SC3 the most, but SC2 feelsl more nostalgic. hope this makes it's way onto next gen consoles

SC2 is one of the best fighting games, period. Weapon Master mode beats anything I've ever played in a fighting game, it was a full fledged story with tons of replayability. If you had the GC ver. you had Link and it was an overall great game with the best looking Nightmare and Soul Edge. It's timeless really.

In terms of content, the "Story" mode could've been much better. However, the gameplay, line-up, and balance of Soul Calibur 2 is unmatched.

Raphael, Mitsurugi, Link, and Taki, some of the best characters in the game.

Team Vs. Is also one of the best modes I've played.

Also. The Soundtrack is one of the best I've heard, and the stages were really nice as well.

Ivy looked bad-ass in SC2 before they gave her that ridiculous bust size.

Oh the good old days when Kilik actually looked cool. It Sucks that their not making a Wii U version Link was the best.

yesh, SC2's Mitsurugi had the worst model, completely changed his appearance to some sort of Mongol. with all due respect to the Mongols but Mitsurugi was supposed to have a Japanese/Anime look.

anyway, they fixed it afterword.. but they broke the game instead.. at least in the last installment.
