Soul Calibur II Video Review
Greg Kasavin delivers the final word on the latest installment of Namco’s weapon based fighting game.
Just bought this for 2 bucks on the net. I had to have it again its still my favorite fighting game ever....
720p HD support was pretty amazing on the Xbox for a game made in 2003, waaaay before HD tv's started getting widespread adoption.
I've played SC2 and I like it. But the Dreamcast version is still the best in the series. And this is coming from a guy who's played this series since Soul Blade (PS1).
@falariem: It makes sense that the Xbox version had the best controls if you think about it - afterall it was the most similar to the dreamcast controler so required minimal remapping. It also Had the best sound and graphics. To bad I have gc version but at least it's better than ps2.

XBox version DOES look the best, and had the best control scheme. But Spawn is pretty much a "cheat" character. Link was a great addition to the GC version, with Link being a relatively solid character, but the controller mapping sucked. I remember my fingers going numb from having to jam on the shoulder triggers a lot. However, this one, both with Heihachi and the "middle ground" control scheme, is my favorite. Different versions aside, Necrid and the voice acting were the only downsides I saw to this game. It's still one of my favorites by far.
