    Great game, but it's not worth more than a rental.

    Falls into Namco's difficulty trap. Just like their other games.

    Namco seems to do this alot: They make their games too hard AND too easy. I first noticed this in Tekken 3, then Tekken 4, and now in Soul Calibur. What happens is, they make the AI very cheap in medium and hard, but no ... Read Full Review
