The huge cast of characters combined with the series' signature weapons-based fighting has kept us glued to our consoles for hours on end--I still have it sitting in my disc tray at home. But the real hook of this latest installment has to be the character creator that was introduced in Soul Calibur III. With just a little creativity, fans have churned out custom characters that draw their inspiration from across the spectrum of media. Comics, movies, celebrities, other games... if you can think of someone that you want to fight as (or against), chances are you can put together some resemblance of them with the toolset the developers provided.
"We've scoured the net and online matches in search of some of the best custom fighters out there to bring you our list of the top 50 user-made characters. We ranked each based on creativity, resemblance to the source material, and a little bit of personal bias (some things are just cooler than others). There are sure to be some characters that we missed out on because we either couldn't find a picture or we didn't stumble across them while preparing this Top 50. I'm sorry Turtle fans, I couldn't find any Ninja Turtles despite my endless searching. Here are UGO's Top 50 User-Created Soul Calibur Characters."
