Better than I first expected.
22 July 2001 | by (A place where I can play Soul Calibur) – See all my reviews

Being a lover of video games, I go around to different websites to check out other games. During my usual visits to several places, I've noticed two games that received the highest score possible. They are as follows: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64) and Soul Calibur (DC).

My sister, who is a fighting game fanatic, recently bought Dreamcast to play fighting game, namely Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Soul Calibur. After 3 months of searching, she finally received a copy of the latter for a present.

At first I was skeptic about how much I would enjoy this game, but D---! This is one of the best fighting games I have ever played! Everything about this game is great!

First, the graphics. They say Playstation 2 has better graphics, but none of the games I've played or seen other people play on it looks as good as this one. The characters are all nicely animated and look realistic! The backgrounds are detailed, stuff I haven't seen since Rare's Conker's Bad Fur Day.

The music is nice, but it still doesn't match up with the music from games like Zelda and Super Mario 64 or even Yoshi's Story. Ah, well, it still gets stuck in my head. The people all speak in Japanese, which is pretty cool, but I think it would be more appropriate if each people spoke in their own vernacular.

The gameplay is actually fairly simple and extremely addicting. Though the game is still not devoid of cheap moves, but with the blocking system, it's almost impossible to use them. And you can't spend the entire time blocking either. Overall, this game plays very well.

There is only one other fighting game that has captured my attention like Soul Calibur, and that is Super Smash Bros. With several features such as Mission Mode (where you play missions to earn points and buy art cards), it's no wonder the lasting appeal for this game is so high.

And did I mention two extremely cute girls?

This game is the best game I have ever played for the Dreamcast. If you have a Dreamcast and don't have this game, get it. If even a fighter-hater like me can get sucked in by its charm, then I don't see why anyone else can't.
