IGN: Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny Review

IGN writes: "Although Broken Destiny is nothing more than a portable version of Soulcalibur IV (with Kratos along for the ride), the game is visually stunning and the size of the roster is admirable. What's most impressive about Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny is how well it preserves its console counterpart's formula while making very few sacrifices along the way.

Although it's hard for me to strongly recommend this game if you already own Soulcalibur IV, it's safe to say that this is one of the most beautiful, complex fighting games on the PSP and should please Soulcalibur fans. The developers should be praised for making the game work so well on the PSP, even though we've seen most of it before".

Kratos is my type of guy. He knows how to get things done. Plain. Simple. The Walken Way.

What in the world was the point on Sony adding Infrastructure mode on the PSP if no one will freaking support it!? I was hoping this game couldve been taken online directly from the PSP.

Ah well still might pick this up...might. All my enjoyment from Soul Calibur IV came from playing it online.

This will be in my PSP game collection, just not yet. Top priority this year is Ratchet ACiT, Uncharted 2 and Serious Sam: HD.

This review is stupid. It judges the game within constant contrast to it's console counterpart. This game, any game, should be reviewed with respect to it's contemporaries. In essence, there is NO finer fighter on the PSP than this or Tekken 5. Comparing it to console versions of the same game is ridiculous, the PSP has a fraction of their power and should never be expected to compete in the same areas.

The point is, you have to compare it to games on the same platform in the same genre and judge it's place among them. Not among games on platforms capable of much more.


All-Star Franchises, Underrated Entries - Part Fourteen

Phil writes, "If you've been around SuperPhillip Central for a little while (it's still okay if you haven't, so no harm done), then you know that I like talking about underrated and overlooked games. I've done various series on the subject. However, most of the time, the games mentioned in these articles are from wholly new or overlooked franchises themselves.

There are also a multitude of series that I can think of that have one, two, or a handful of games in it that aren't viewed as highly as the others, whether just or not.

These ideas are where the concept of All-Star Franchises, Underrated Entries comes from, and since our 13th edition, I've come up with six more underrated entries to big-time franchises, some bigger than others."

Top 5 Fighting Gaming Crossovers That Are Not Super Smash Bros

Carl Williams writes, "In video games, we don’t see too many crossover events. It is probably due to the fact that video game companies are quite litigious with each other. That is a shame, though, as it would be interesting to see more gaming crossover events that are not Super Smash Bros or a Capcom and SNK fighting game. While it was a little bit of work, we have tracked down five awesome gaming crossovers that you have forgotten about."

I'd prefer BlazBlue, but I'd be happy with either.

knifefight4051d ago

Blazblue is such an underrated series. Great 2D fighting right there.

Kevin ButIer4051d ago

Kenshin_BATT0USAI4051d ago

Isn't blazblue already in the insant collection. I already have it in my purchase list and I know I didn't buy it. God Eater Burst will be the next title. Which is also an awesome game. One of my fav. PSP games actually.

Donnieboi4051d ago (Edited 4051d ago )

BlazBlue is already free on ps plus right now sir. I have it.
