Diverse and addicting fighting game (Video Game)
2 February 2006 | by patrick_dunneSee all my reviews

Soul Caliber 2 is the sequel to the Arcade game called "Soul Caliber." It's a really fun fighting game with more stuff than you actually need.

The game has a lot of characters to choose from. There are at least fifteen, if not more. Each one has their own combos to use. There are a lot of combos. If you want to use you character well in battle, it's best to use only the simplest combos until you're ready.

You can also buy weapons for your character. Each character has about ten unlock-able weapons (I don't know the exact number.) and each has different abilities and powers. For example, some might be more powerful, but have a short range.

The graphics are stunning and detailed. The sound system is superb. Each character has their own voices that they say if they get hit, hit the opponent, or whatever else there is.

If you are a hard-core fan of fighting games, this is one that should not be missed.
