I find this version of soul calibur the best game yet compared to it’s sequels. The controls are so smooth and the characters respond great.

Plays and looks great! Thanks very, very much!
Namco crosses consoles to expand upon on the SoulBlade/SoulEdge engine and richens the roster from the previous game. All original disciplines are available, even though Maxi replaces the Nunchaku-wielding Li-Long. This title introduces some of the most popular characters and most memorable lore in the entire Soul series, boasting a wide variety of game modes and a superb bgm selection. A hardcore player will want a vga cable to avoid hideous composite graphics, and a die hard fan might spring for a Sewell Manta VGA to HDMI 1080p upscaler and a dual female rca to male 3.5mm adapter for audio. Jaw dropping visuals from a late 90s DC game.

Soul Calibur is one of the funnest games I’ve ever played! The graphics are outstanding and so are the characters especially Kilik who is one of my favorites. Another good thing about the characters is that they are all very different from eachother unlike some of the older and more similar games like the Tekken games, and the Mortal Kombat series, and Virtua Fighter. But all games have positives and negatives. Once when I was playing Soul Calibur at my cousin’s house, my character was knoched down by the 2 player who was Yoshimitsu and before I could get back up again he just kept on hitting me and hitting me until I was K.O. (knocked out). Which really stunk! So far I haven’t had any other problems with this game so if you have a Dreamcast and you don’t have this game I highly recomend getting it or at least renting it if you could. Another piece of advice-Dreamcast games are sometimes hard to find… But my mom usually buys my Dreamcast games on the internet.
There is doubt about it, this was the game that showed the dreamcast could be a major competitor. Being a big fan of the arcade version, I must say(for the billionth time), that this one surapasses the arcade version. This is a very strategic fighting game, And it is extremely deep gameplay. Although my only compaint is that a button masher can beat the computer. That is my compliant about all 3-d fighting game(as opposed to earlier, Street Fighter2, And Street fighter alpa, series games.), is that button mashing can get you over. Although, in 3-d fighting games(like Tekken and, of course Soul Calibur), you cant pull off impressive,beautiful,combos with just button mashing. For the most part, this game has alot of relay value, lots of of unlockable characters. The mssion mode, which adds even more to replay value, and the cool museum mode. In my opinion, Time attack mode, is useless. The survival mode, while great, is just too easy. Another problem, the final Boss, Inferno. He is pretty easy as well. But this is common in 3-d fighters. But all in all this is a solid fighting game. It is just a bit too easy. Even ultra hard mode, can be easily won by a competent Soul Calibur player.(although button mashers can win the first two stages). This game is a must-have for Dreamcast owners.
Even though it’s over a year old, Soul Calibur is not only the best-looking Dreamcast game there is, it’s the best 3D fighting game on the planet. Period. Nothing comes close. A lot of people say Tekken Tag for the PS2 is a better game, but Tag is merely a rehash of Tekken 3 with updated graphics, and Dead or Alive 2 just doesn’t have the same shine. Soul Calibur introduced so many new ideas to the genre of 3D fighting that it’s hard to think how anyone will surpass it: the 8-Way run system and Guard Impact are just two of them. The graphics are flawless 60 fps glory, the sound crystal, the backgrounds enthralling. Mission Mode and the huge unlockable Art Gallery send replay value through the roof, but the true treasure here is the combat system. Helped by pinpoint control, beginners and veterans alike will find no end to the depth of the fighting engine that the 8-Way Run system opens up, allowing your fighter mobility across the entire surface of the arena. People are still talking about the huge leap Soul Calibur represents for fighting games. Namco has produced a work of art that also happens to be the most flawless game I’ve ever played — a year later it’s still the most played game on my Dreamcast and I’m still discovering new moves and techniques. Soul Calibur has sold many Dreamcast systems (my own and all my friends’ as well), and at the price the system and the game are now, it’s an ABSOLUTE STEAL. Everyone who’s even remotely interested in gaming owes it to themselves to experience this piece of history — games like this don’t happen often, folks.

“SOUUUUUUUUL CALIBURRRRRRRRRR ONE”, wait that last part isnt a thing yet
First of all this game has awesome graphics, nothing on any other system/computer compares to them. The game is fun with a bunch of characters, and several that are unlockable, plus a mission mode where you have certain goals with story elements that comply with the story of the game, playing through the mission mode you earn points so you can spend them to view artwork, viewing the art can unlock new options, arenas etc. Buy it.
i was a die-hard mortal kombat fan until i played this, and i was blown away. i don’t usually play fighting games, mind you, but i absolutely adore this game. i’m addicted to it. the characters are great, the graphics are incredible, the gameplay is awesome — buy it. (for me.)
Soul Calibur is a classic example of all icing and no cake! The game looks great and sounds great, but its too easy. The game that is supposed to be the game for “die hard fighting fans” is basically a walk in the park. The game is a button masher! I played the game and found that “turtling up” and waiting for the right time to attack or throw is all that it takes to succeed and it even works on the higher dificulty settings.My major gripe about the game is the dark and demonic story lines. No God fearing person should touch this “demon sword wielding” game (I began to discover the different plots after I played it). I’m not trying to sound like a fanatic but come on why all the demon intense plots in a generally evil game. What sick minds came up with this anyway?If the game had a better plot (one that involved some thought) then it would be a classic, but as it stands…no.
