Welcome to Librarium Online!
So, what do you guys think? Will the game be a good one, will it innovate the genre in any way, or is it going to just be more of the same?
After buying and playing Soul Calibur II for a very limited amount of time, I have to say, I wasn't that impressed with it. The original game was amazing, and the story very cool to play through, but once Dead or Alive became bigger, I lost my interest in the second one. I didn't even bother playing the third one.
Now.. what are thoughts on the characters? Xbox is getting Jedi Master Yoda, and PS3 is getting Darth Vader. Who would you rather have? Are they going to try to fit the characters into the story, like they did with Spawn and the other guy (from Tekken or whatever he was from), or are they just bonus characters?
I'm interested to see what people still say about Soul Calibur. I could use a second fighting game (with Dead or Alive 4 being my main fighter right now).
Yeah I don't think it will revolutionize the genre, or even the game series itself, but it will add on to more of a good thing and it is definately going to be 60$ missing from my wallet. I really hope that they expand upon the customizable characters introduced in the last game (its really a shame you didn't play it, those create-a-characters still have me pulling the game out now and then).
As for Yoda and Vader, they seem awesome. Vader seems to be more of a mainstream character in the vein of Nightmare and Siegfried: good defense and attack but slower, while Yoda is the more interesting character: fragile and fast but he avoids most horizontal attacks.
Overall the new characters, next-gen graphics and potential and dependability of the series secures this as a buy for me.
I have only played Soul Caliber II but I have to agree with Tarnag, when it comes out as long as it doesn't get horrible reviews from a billion different sites then I will at least check it our, also IMO DOA and SC are both fighters but have different game play aspects to them and I would rather play SC any day if given the choice between the two
i enjoy all Soul Caliber and this one is no exception the game is jus amazing
