NYT Reviews: Soul Calibur IV

New York Times Writes:

From Errol Flynn's swashbucklers through George Lucas's light-saber duels, mass entertainment probably still has no better frame for the elemental mano-a-mano conflict than a sword fight.

Purely as a matter of aesthetics, video games have lagged behind movies in conveying the athleticism of close-quarter combat. The difficulty has been in allowing players precise, tight control over their visual avatars while retaining the fluidity of motion that makes a Jackie Chan scene or a fight from "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" so enthralling.

The story is too old to be commented.
