What Gamespot Users have to say about SoulCalibur III

  • User Rating 9.7

    Although the new game modes aren't everything they could be, they're full of potential and SCIII is just plain fun.

    I've been playing Soul Calibur III for a few days now and I must say I'm very happy with what it offered so far. For starters, I loved the first SC but for some reason I can't explain, I didn't like S...

    ONE OF THE BEST FIGHTING GAMES!!!! Soul Calibur 3 is good, but not a ten because of 1 thing: no online modes

    Great game with a few minor problems

    This is a great game. Even though the graphics on the characters are the same they make up for it with great detail in the backround. The fighting is even better because when the character attacks the...

    Not much improvement from its predecessor, but still a fantastic Beat-em-Up and addictive as hell.

    I really enjoyed playing Soul Calibur 2 for month and then comes along the 3rd installment. I automatically swiched to it, but gotta admitt - it hasn't changed that much, and hasn't improved much, unf...

    Sometimes more just doesn't seem right.

    I enjoyed playing the next entry in the Soul Calibur through the story mode because you can choose where to go next and has interactive cut-scenes (usually if you don't press the prompted you'll reg...

    Soul Calibur 3 is a great improvement to Soul Calibur 2. Anyone who liked Soul Calibur 2 should love Soul Calibur 3.

    Soul Calibur 3 is an above average fighting game that will please fans of this series. It continues the same storyline of many warriors having a bitter war over the ultimate sword. The gameplay in Sou...

    This game is really good and comes with even more cahracters, but a few of the new modes are boring and just plain dumb.

    I just got this game a few days ago and thought it was really good, except for a few things. The story is still good and there are newer and better characters. There is also prettier graphics and mo...

    Although it is a good game, like SCII, there is nothing much new. "This blade is beggining to dull"-Gamepro Magazine

    Namco brings Soul Calibur back, but this time it is a PS2 exclusive. With virtually the same modes and only a few characters, Soul Calbur III is not as good as I anticipated. The create-a-character m...

    Gameplay: 8/10 The controls and in-battle gameplay was pretty good, well set-up and combo's were fairly well put together. The main problem here is that the gameplay (no matter which mode your in) is...

    no online play is a major deal breaker but without it it still provides a great experience.

    First lets talk about the chronicle of swords mode which isnt as bad as gamespot said it is. It has its rough edges here and there load times are manable but its pretty nice with the strategy involved...
