Aint got NOTHING on Street Fighter
Being a huge fan of Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, Soul Calibur was a fighting game I never really got into. I tried it once on the PS2 a few years back and thought it was okay, but nowhere near as good as Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat. Well, now it's come out next gen and you can play online. Why not try it out? Well, I did and I'm not impressed. First of all I don't know who any of the characters are, since I wasn't into the first games, or any of their moves or special attacks. The characters look ridiculous and most of them are the same with just a few different attributes. Their little voice taunts, etc, are stupid and weak. I was excited to play as Vader, but he doesn't even look like he does in the movies. In my opinion his suit looks weird. I was pretty disappointed to find out you can't jump (you can, but like half a foot in the air - not to kick them in the air like Street Fighter) I've been playin' for hours and just cannot get the feel of this game and am just not "feelin' it." I don't like how it's 3D and not 2D. I hate how the block button is "x" on the PS3. I guess I'm just so used to Street Fighter and the button scheme is "implanted" in my head. I keep holding back to block and end up getting ripped a new asshole. Overall, it's kinda fun to play considering it is really the only next-gen fighting game you can play online at the moment (I think, besides Virtua Fighter). People that love Soul Calibur will love this game. It's got customization, good graphics, and new characters, etc. But for me, a STREET FIGHTER fan it doesn't impress me and looks kinda "stupid." I would give it a 2/5, but since you can play online I'll give it a 3.
