Let me start by saying that this is THE fighting game franchise that Namco should focus it's efforts towards. Screw Tekken and its generic, slow-ass fighters. Each character here sports their own unique fighting style, selection of weapons, and bad-ass personality. Choose a favorite and battle it out in one of a dozen or so modes, including the refreshingly challenging Weapon Master mode. Go into practice mode to learn a new fighter, and beat the crap out of the cheap b****** computer player whilst learning new moves. The game offers plenty to do. Again, I've broken the game up into categories:
Graphics: The incredible detail poured into the arenas, weapons, and characters is stunning. While it doesn't completely dominate with its beauty in today's gaming era, it will surely impress.
Sound: A mixed bag. First off, the music does not suit a fighting game. Sweeping, dramatic, orchestrated tunes just don't seem to fit into the game's speedy battling. The english characters voices are ho-hum, but not nearly as bad as other recent efforts. Stick with the Japanese voices, people. Sound effects, however, are amazing. The clang of two blades clashing, the sound of Kilik's wooden staff connecting with a poor sap's head, the crack of Ivy's whip as it sings through the air. It is indeed nice.
Story: Each character here has there own weird little back story. Evil sword that can destroy the world, busty ninja wants to destroy it/capture it/demon pirate wants it, and so forth. That's what makes the game so amusing, it's kinda interesting to delve into the story. Can you find and claim the Soul Edge as your own??? Or will you be driven mad? Make you think, huh? Well, not really.

2.0 out of 5 stars Want to waste your money? Buy this game! Sept. 2 2003
This game is definitely several steps down from the first. The computer player is unchallenging, and Namco decided to compensate for this by making you do all sorts of ridiculously boring missions in order to unlock all the hidden players. Instead of giving you a challenging computer opponent, they come up with all these ridiculous rules to make the missions "harder". But these don't actually test your skills in the game... they only test your patience. How much time are you willing to waste?
The graphics are good, but even if you're buying this game so you can play against your friends, you're going to end up wasting your money. You'll only be able to play with a few characters. All the other characters have to be unlocked by playing their stupid mission mode.
There are other problems with the game, too. The music sucks, for example. Also, your characters will be slow to respond to your commands, especially blocking. Don't even think about trying to block in this game (much less guard impact!), because it will never work, the interface is just too slow.
The only solid improvement in this game is the graphics. As a game, though, it's a big let-down and a big waste of time. Stick with SC 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Soul Calibur game I have played to date! Oct. 23 2011
By Gregory
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This. This is epic. I remember playing Soul Calibur 2 on the PS2 version, but someone had the GC version and I wanted to play it just because it had Link in it.

I have never played the Soul Calibur series but this because this GC version has Link in it and I am comfortable playing as him. xD
