CES 2008: Soul Calibur IV hands-on and gameplay video from IGN

The demo build that was on display only allowed IGN to play as Taki, Cassandra and Mitsurugi within two maps utilizing the capabilities of the PS3 and Xbox 360, delivering some stunning visuals, as the game was running at 720p at a solid 60 fps (which will also be the final resolution and framerate).

The environments were wonderfully created, showcasing some of the finer details, allowing players to get lost in the grand presentation. You'll be able to see shadows from various gates cast on the ground, hippos lounging in a lagoon as you do battle and structures clearly visible in the distance, casting a great skyline, giving some fantastic visual candy to the player. A new element introduced into the maps of the game are destructible environments, so as you slam someone into a tree, a branch will splinter, or if you throw your foe harshly to the ground, the stone will crack and shatter, helping to convey the devastating impact certain attacks have.

The story is too old to be commented.
