years have passed since the spirit sword, Soul Calibur, defeated
the evil Soul Edge. At the end of that fateful battle, the
shards of the shattered Soul Edge were scattered across the
world and Soul Calibur was lost to the void. Now, the evil
that still resides in the scattered shards of Soul Edge threatens
again to engulf the world in darkness...
Calibur finally makes it's way on to the Gamecube in this
follow-up game to 1999's Dreamcast original - which was one
of the most addictive beat'em up games for some years.
the first game was so well received Namco have, very wisely,
not altered the gameplay in any real sense - except to add
better blocks and counter attacks - In fact, it is very similar
in many respects to the original. The game is again set in
the 16th century and still consists of men and women slapping
each other around with swords, axes, fighting sticks and other
like all games in this genre, it is relatively simple to beat
your opponent by just diving on the controller and whacking
every button at the same time - which is what most people
in our office seem to think is called "tactics"!
still, effectively Tekken with pointy sticks, but the
in-game graphics and introduction sequences have that little
extra edge. Also
Gamecube owners get an addition bonus to the game as Link,
from The Legend of
Zelda, makes a guest
one "must own" beat'em up game for the Gamecube.
