Impulse Gamer - Soul Calibur is definitely one of the more unique fighting titles and opposed to your Street Fighters and Tekkens, weapons play a key part to the fighting style of all your characters. Another cool aspect about this series was the inclusion of guest stars into the franchise. Although there are a number of staple characters in this franchise, the developers have successfully bargained with video game and movie companies to include characters like Solid Sake (Metal Gear Solid) and even Darth Vader (Star Wars). So when I heard that Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed would be one of the playable characters, I was totally over the moon. However unlike the aforementioned Darth Vader, Ezio Auditore is definitely a much more suited character to this franchise and is not as overpowering as the Dark Lord of the Sith.
