Soul Calibur Legends fait les présentations

EDIT: Well the latest 1up preview says:

http://www.1up.com/do/previewPage?cId=3163923

After playing a few levels of a preview copy, we're not entirely sure what to think of Soul Calibur Legends. It's the best third-person brawler we've played on Wii, but there's not exactly a lot of competition there, considering the last one we tried had trouble even distinguishing between vertical and horizontal movements.

Legends has issues with awkward animation transitions when you're not swinging your blade, and environments that don't seem to have a lot going on in them, but the combat system works pretty well -- especially with the faster characters where you get quick feedback on your motions. Ivy's launcher where you flick the remote back to send an enemy into the air feels great, and a lot of the aerial attacks and quick combos work well when fending off crowds.

It doesn't all play out as fluidly as the Soul Calibur fighting games at this point, and perhaps that's an unfair comparison because of the genre shift, but we're hoping that as we spend more time with the game and learn more maneuvers, everything will start to flow a bit better.

Anyhow there are new videos which look a lot better HERE:!

Looks allright-ish

Oh New-videos:) trailer

Really? This looks more like a middle-of-the-road PS2 game. Even if the wii can't pump out PS3/xbox360-quality graphics, there's no excuse for a wii game to look like this.

I meant early Xbox game graphics, and that is definitely underwhelming for a Wii game. Namco needs to focus more on putting decent graphics into this.

Looking not bad. I'm still keeping an eye on it but with all the other great games I want to get when I get a Wii I honestly don't know if this will be one I ever get around to picking up. Most likely it will probably be one of those games that I rent.

For some reason, maybe I need my eyes adjusted, but I really don't think this game looks that bad...Sure maybe the graphics aren't that great, but I think the artstyle looks really solid...In fact, I would say the game looks like it has some character, which is more than I can say for half of the next-gen games that have been released. However, if it is indeed merely a hack n' slash with no depth whatsoever, color me overwhemingly unimpressed, but thats nearly impossible to tell just looking at the screens. I the game would be awesome if it implemented some sort of Bushido-Blade esque combat system.

It does look really shallow Hi Res but the previews I've read say that it controls well and is fun for what it is. Looks likea rental. Graphically it looks OK to me, lets not kid ourselves, its not even up there with the best of the last generation but it's by no means as fugly as some of the guys here are saying. Then again I can still find DC graphics attractive. Shenmue anyone? :P

Anyhow I posted new videos and at 60 FPS with the animation it looks better. Shallow as hell though.

EDIT: Damnit gamespot! :evil: Your HTML is not well formed??! Shove it up your ass! Damn well ruined it. I was going to post all the shots.

It looks combat-heavy, which is understandable.

But I was hoping Namco would take a clue from Sony of Santa Monica and incorporate some genre-bending platforming action, puzzle solving, battling screen-sized bosses, with the hack-n-slashing if you know what I mean.

I think it looks pretty good. Thing is, it'sway tooeasy to set a milestone for third person action games on the Wii.

As long as the game is responsive, with good gameplay, combos, enemy design, boss battles and level design then it´ll sell just fine. I´m still confortable with previous gen graphics. BTW, what was that game with the Cowboy girl? Is she wearing a ....feather boa?!?:|?!?

To be honest, if developers put some time and effort into the graphics, every Wii game would look as good as SMG, MP3 and even Ninja Gaiden Black on the XBox.

I still feel this game is going to be average at best, it defines the words generic and lifeless.

That game is almost disturbing. Woman in Lingerie with sword and cowboy hat fights the evil legions of something!

Yeah I don't think it will be the best game. I just like keeping an eye on it. I think eventually somehow I will end up trying it out, but if it reviews poorly there's no way I'm paying new game money for it.
