The game was superb and sadly only available on the dead Dreamcast.
2003 SC 2 comes out. 3 systems 3 special characters. A slight improvement graphically and game playwise over the first.
2005 SC 3. Which was SC2 with a few new characters. It hardly made note. Its main bonus was the character creation mode. Finally we get SC4.
Perhaps its the next gen system thing, but SC4 is finally the upgrade of the game that we have been waiting for.
1st off its the only fighting game where Darth Vader comes off playable. (the star wars one of old is painful to play)
There has been a huge jump in graphics.
Taki's melon sized chest has been reduced (still well endowed just not back breaking.) And her outfit manages to not be totally offensive.
Character creation is easy and effective.
Getting the new characters no longer requires you to go through the obscene weapon master or path of souls mode.
I think my favorite addition would be the new fighter Hilde.
A female character that actually wears armor into a fight.
