A game which was hihgly aticipated after the great success of the first one in the series. There is a wide variety of characters to chose from each with their own different fighting style and charachteristics. The game is pretty massive with lots to unlock and the fast paced action and superb graphics will make you 'finish' the game. The storyline in one player mode is rather weak and you probley wont pay much attention to it but just want to get on with the fighting but get a friend round and you will have great fun taking pride in the amount of times you can perfect K.O them. The controls to the game are sublime and the C stick makes it easy to pull of standard attacks without the use of bashing loads of combinations. Those that played the first game will be instantly in the action as the combinations are the same for the respective moves. A lot has been kept from the first game and this really does look like the same with bells on it but i aint complaining as the added bonuses ,make it well worth the money. The opening sequence is one of the greatest I have seen and if you are a legend of Zelda fan then youmust buy SC2 on the gamecube as you get the exclusive use of Link who looks and controls just as well as the other characters. Fans of the first game will be pleased to see familiar faces like Kilik and those that want something different will be pleased to see new faces like Necron. If you are looking for a superb beat em up then please look no further than Soul Calibur 2.
Anthmack has a point. Splitting up this sort of review makes it much easier to read and gives much higher rates. Dave

Would have given a very helpful rating, if:
* You had added a little more detail like: How much it costs? Where can you buy it?
* If you had written an intraductory note. Alot of people on CIAO write introductions, to help the person reading your review to become interested
* If you had split your review in to different headed sections. For example in this case:
-- Where to Buy--
-- Reason why I bought it--
Its always good to put structure your reviews, so that the reader can directly goto what he or she is looking for. Youd be better off seeing a very helpful rated review on a game.
Also, youre spelling mistakes are quite horrendous. I think theyre just typos, so just make sure you run it through a spell check. I use word for example.
Sorry mate, Just trying to help. Really good review, just a few tips to get a few of the higher ones. Welcome to Ciao by the way. All the best
