    More of the same

     Soul Calibur III is released the same year Tekken 5 was, and while Tekken 5 was a wonderful sequal, Soul Calibur stabs itself in the foot.

    The gameplay remains the same for the most part. The three characters that are debuting for the game are equaly awesome. They do have different gameplay modes, but none of them are really fun. The story mode is ok, but the cutscenes aren't too rewarding.

    The graphics has been beefed up impressively for the game, the backgrounds are amazingly beutiful, but the models look the same.

    The sound sounds..... the same. The voice acting is better, but not much.

    Value is questionable, if you love the game, you will play it every once in a while for fun, but theres not much there.

    What really brings this game down is no online play... which isn't good. IF there was online play, then the value would boost up really high.

    overall, Soul Calibur III is a decent sequal, but not enough to keep you interested for long.

That Namco can screw up a proven formula this badly is infuriating and totally inexcusable. Being Soul Cali...

      Since the release of Soul Calibur on the Sega Dreamcast, the series has experienced a steady decline in ratings scores, not necessarily due to a lack of quality, but due to the fact that they haven't been bringing anything new to the table. And, while Soul Calibur III breaks this trend and offers up a host of new features like custom character creation and a strategy role-playing game of sorts. Still, the fighting mechanics have remained unchanged in many areas and some of the tweaks that have b...
