SC2 is still my favorite and of the guest characters... Link fit the style of the game the best. I will say though that Vader and Yoda made a couple of really good special appearances. Like the spartan 458 in DoA4. Totally does not fit with the program but somehow it just works.

2 is the best. (GameCube)


Soul Calibur IV - 15 Years of Soul

Soul Calibur IV launched worldwide 15 years ago, bringing with it the best performance of the series to date.

Hell no. It was the start of the downfall (SCV) of the series. Huge downstep from the giant SCIII

Switched to unreal engine. Ruined it.

Used to love this series, probably my favorite 3D fighter, perhaps together with the now also dead Dead or Alive (2-3-4), but as with so many games in the fighting genre, their short-term greed (season passes) has made me lose all interest, sadly …

Yeah, I remember playing Soul Caliber on my dreamcast at the time, that was insane!

sosro121d ago (Edited 121d ago )

the first three are much better games.

Loved Number 2 and 3( loved all the solo modes like chronicle of the sword ) so was super hyped when 4 came out but the lack of single player content was disappointing. Still love soul calibur to this day though

2 was definitely the golden era of Soul Calibur for me. I was a bit conflicted about it at times because there were 3 different versions (I liked the PS2 version for controls, I liked playing as Spawn the most, and I thought the addition of Link was really awesome). Even so, the single player content was outstanding. Easily the most fun I've had with a fighting game, followed closely by Tekken 5's single player modes

20 Years Later: 'Soulcalibur II' is Fighting Game Perfection

Now that the Japanese console versions of Soulcalibur II are 20 years old, it's worth looking back at why the game remains so iconic.

Of the three console versions, GCN was my favorite due to Link. His character felt more accurate to the others. Hehachi and Spawn were okay but... felt out of place.

Then again, so did Yoda and Vader in SC4.

Terry_B240d ago

It was excellent, not flawless but yes..excellent.

sadraiden240d ago

SC2 Weapon Master was a really fun time. SC3's RTS game was also a blast.

ZeekQuattro240d ago

Yeah I played that more than I thought I would. Stare decisis.

MWH240d ago

Thousands of matches, countless nights, and beautiful memories. Soulcalibur is one the greatest games there is, but its best feat is that it gathered friends for some of the best times of their lives. I miss those days and i miss those friends.

SoulWarrior240d ago

Thought 3 was better personally, shame it's stuck on PS2 and didn't get any love since.

Terry_B240d ago

It had one of the best ways to have a story for every character in any fighting game.

Something thats missing in the most fighting games that are not BlazBlue anyway. Sadly.
