5.0 out of 5 stars The Best GameCube beat-em-up/action game to date July 4 2004
By A Customer
When I first heard of this game, I was pretty excited - I got that feeling a true hard-core gamer gets everytime they catch wind of a great game in the future - you know, that feeling you get that compares to when you're about to go on a humongous roller coaster - anticipation for a great ride/game, fear of puking from the roller coaster/wasting $50. I've learned over the course of my young life that you shouldn't get your hopes up for exciting games - they're mostly a let-down. So, I bought this one...
and OH MY GOD!!!
It was the most amazing fighting game I've ever played. And the Weapon Master mode added just the right touch of RPG to it - a beat-em-up/action/fighter/rpg.... COOL!
Ok, here's the gist of it. There are several modes. Arcade, of course, is always there - pick a fighter, go out and see how many guys you can take out. If you get seven kills, you get to fight Inferno, this flaming beast.
Time Attack - How many guys can you kill within the time limit? That simple.
Survival - How many guys can you kill before you die?
Team Battle - Arrange a team of three or less and fight five other teams of three; the last of which has Inferno as a member.
Versus - Grab a friend and kill each other.
Versus Team Battle - Grab a friend, arrange a team of up to eight fighters, then the victorious team wins the battle. Great if you want to have up to sixteen people playing - just note that if the first character out completely wipes out the other team, then the others wont even get to play.
Weapon Master - Select a character, and go try to find the legendary sword, Soul Edge. You may buy weapons and unlock Extra Modes, just like the modes listed above, just that you can use the weapons you bought in Weapon Master.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first June 11 2004
Well, if you haven't Soul Calibur 2 is a game you need to play. Unlike most fighting games Soul Calibur 2 has a good storyline. Some fighting games just have an arcade mode where you fight every character on the game. Soul Calibur 2 has a weapons master mode where you can be any character you want and you follow along with the story. Some of the characters on this game are Link, Astaroth, Voldo, and those are just a few of the many characters on Soul Calibur 2. I think that the storyline on this game is better than any other game I've played. Secondly the graphics on this game are so cool that they will blow your mind. It has awesome facial detail along with great background detail. Examples of this are, if the character says something you can see their mouth move. Now you may be thinking why does that matter? It matters because it makes the game more realistic and the more realistic the better.
Like the storyline the controls on Soul Calibur 2 are good. I say this because it is easy to perform attacks or block enemy attacks. Also, there are so many different attacks you can perform. Such as, a horizontal attack, a vertical attack and an attack where you throw the enemy. All this helps you when you are battling throughout the game. Owing to the fact that, the graphics are amazing, controls are good, and the storyline is good, the fun factor of this game is great. What makes it so fun is that there are so many different things you can do, that you never get bored of. For instance, this game has a versus mode where you can play against other people.
It also has a lot of extras, like an extra versus battle, extra team battle and a profile mode where you can read about the profile of any character. Soul Calibur 2 is probably the most fun game I have ever played.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best fighting game of all time. June 3 2004
The fighting here is absolutely fluid. The reason (here it is, fanatics) this game is better than VF4 is because anyone can play it, maybe win a few matches, but unlike Namco's other popular fighter (Tekken) you cannot "master" it casually. I'll take the time to digest VF4 if I want to, but this is the game to take out with friends.
This is the standard to which all other weapons-based fighting games will be held. The fighting engine is brilliant; so fluid and responsive. The characters act like you'd think they will with the right button combos, there's no dial-in combos here. The controller is great for this game; I don't understand people who hate it. Who in their right mind would use a d-pad for this game? The controller stick is perfect, and the Gamecube's button layout is unconfusing and simple, because it in essence has three main buttons (for the three main attacks) where the others have four.
This game brings me joy in a way few others have. There is nothing better than shooting arrows and bombs with Link, Kilik's awesome-you-gotta-see-it-in-motion screen-length stick, going at it with Cervantes' double swords, or using Ivy's infamous whip. Anyone can pick it up and play, but it takes practice to master it all.
I'm not going even to nitpick about the lack of an involving single player experience. Weapon Master can be beaten easily in one day or a few, but who cares? This is the best fighting game ever made, and it's good whether you're playing with friends or against the computer.

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. Read more
