My favorite fighting baby
29 July 2000 | by BLDJSee all my reviews

I have never played any other fighting game with so much depth on it. Not that the story is deep, of course-I'm talking about the engine. Soul Calibur features so many extra modes, characters and moves that it makes me wonder if Tekken Tag Tournament will really take it down. Not to mention the Graphics, of course-the world had never seen anything as graphically detailed before. The two characters on screen really use all of what the Dreamcast can offer.

It is just a pity that other DC games aren't this good. If you own a Dreamcast, of course, you MUST buy it. Not doing it would be a waste.
