Oh, there you go--just fork out more money to a "hurting company that just needs it so badly" and we'll give you the game already done for you...

Hi everyone, the demo for this game is out! This is great news for people curious or still on the fence with this one.

Speaking on the money thing, now they are even including the ability to level up with money. No more level grinding, just pay some M$ points and your character gains 5 or 10 levels. Want some in-game gold? Just pay some M$ for it. Here is the link to a recent game that is testing this out:

yeah, if it's already on the disk--now added content, sure, maybe...but not stuff that should be included...I like Nintendo on that one--play through the game, unlock all the characters.

Unlock for CASH. It is silly. DDR Universe for the 360 did this same thing. They have 8 bonus songs that cost M$ points to obtain. They are on the disk, but by paying the money you unlock the content. It is absolutely maddening.

unlock code that costs money? or just has to be unlocked by the game play?

If Darth was immediately available for the box, I might have gotten it. Combine him with the apprentice...awesome. I'm still not sure how it equates into the Soul Calibur universe, but it is all good.

Speaking of, I hear that Darth and Yoda are on both versions, they just need the unlock code...which will undoubtedly cost some dough. Kind of makes you sick.

I played this game on the PS3 and of course I had to be Darth Vader. I must say that the story mode was pretty easy since I beat it rather quickly and I have never played a Soul Caliber game before. I'm not really into fighting games but this one seems like a good buy if you enjoy the series or fighting games.

lol, it does take a certain getting used to. I don't have this one, but I have the one for the original xbox. Personally, it is one of my favorite of the fighting games. The controls feel natural to me.

I played the Facebreaker demo and that was really wonky to me. Almost too simplified. Then you have Mortal Kombat which was a little too hard for me. Press "x" seven times and then "y". Too hard to count and fight.

Wow, I just saw some pictures of the character creator and...wow. Might push this game more into the "to pick up" category. Below is a link of someone that made Mario:

Oh snap...you are right Don. I totally didn't realize SC2 was the last one for the Xbox. Spawn rules! I like him because he can hover in the air and toss fireballs or do a deadly sweep with an ax. I still play this game.

When I look at the videos of SC4, I just don't see a whole lot of difference between SC2 and SC4...at least not $60 difference. SC2 plays on the Xbox just fine.

However, I have to say that character customization and the Apprentice looks wicked. Once Vadar comes over to the light side of the 360, I might just have to reconsider.

Thanks for the awesome review...very very helpful.

Thanks For the Review :)

I think I may have to place this purchase on the back burner :( sounds like all I am missing out on is Character creator, and if you have to have armor to be good, my "No Pants Stan" won't have any fun. Beatiful game though!

Good. Darth Vader is bad ass, though him and his apprentice are pretty cheap to use. I hear Yoda is the worst, reaking of cheapness. The character maker is awesome (except that you can't change lip color) and there are so many 'guest characters' you can make. So far I have She-Hulk and Harley Quinn. I have more planned though.

Bad. Story mode is a cinch to beat on normal. It sucks, but it's an easy way to level up your characters. They can get to 9. Everyone is customizable, but only to an extent. Like bonus characters can only be given rings and better weapons. You can't change their outfits at all. Also, power, such as HP are based on armor, so when you create your characters, if you're making someone specific, and they have practically no clothes, they're going to suck.

Other than that, online is great. You can match against friends, but you can't talk to each other during fights, just b4 and after. I'm guessing that was to cut down lag.
Tower of Souls is tough, especially if you want to unlock the treasure chests on each floor. They give you hints as to what you have to do to unlock them, but I suggest getting the SG if you want 100%. Things like Ringing Out every enemy and getting a critical finish on everyone are some of the harder ones to pull off.
Arcade mode is ok, but hell the apprentice is harder than Algol (who is the end guy with both Soul Edge and Soul Caliber). Just make sure you fight The Apprentice defensively. Also you have to beat arcade with Darth Vader (or Yoda) to unlock The Apprentice.

Over all, it's a fun game and worth it if you like fighters. Button mashers also can do well...especially in normal story mode. :P

One day I'll fail to breathe and all you'll have are memories.

Soul Calibur 2 was the one with spawn right? I remember Cause SPAWN MADE ME BUY THE GAME WITH HIS SEXY 16-PACK ABS. Ahem, but I was sad when I missed SC3's Customizable character creation... I hear the new one is outstanding when customizing.

Is it worth it??

Has anyone played this yet? What are your initial thoughts?

I am a little hesitant about seeing Yoda and Darth Vadar in there, but then I remembered how much I love SC3's Xbox version with Spawn. Yeah, I have to admit, that is the character I use the most.
