User Reviews

The beginning of a legend.

Soul Edge(Soul Blade) was originally an Arcade.But this game went to Playstation. For 1996, the graphics were astronomically good. The sound was perfect, with many voices. The gameplay was the best part.The controls were simple, and the moves were easy to make(some moves were activated with only one button!). And the game had a high Fun Factor.Very High. If you have another controller and a friend near your house, the Fun Factor goes much higher. Soul Edge's sequence was launched in 1999 for Dreamcast.It was named Soul Calibur. And Soul Calibur 2 was launched in 2003 for Gamecube, Xbox, Playstation2 and Arcade. 9/10.
