Fighting games have been around as long as gaming itself, and never cease to promise great fun at parties and anywhere else a gaming system can be found. SoulCalibur is the best fighting experience out there because it sort of strays away from the repetitive graphic style of Street Fighter and other games in the genre. They also offer a vast array of characters with different special moves and combos, adding to the fun. With the Xbox 360 version of the game, Yoda can be purchased from the Xbox Live Marketplace for a mere five dollars. For Playstation 3, Darth Vader can be found in the Playstation Store for five bucks as well. Honestly, the developers should have just included the characters in the game, rather than charging players even more money for one extra character. In the fourth game in the series, you can now play online against other players head to head in the online multiplayer mode. On top of that, players can create their own fighter and use him/her in story mode, or multiplayer mode, making the game's replay value a little better, although not by much. The one downside to SoulCalibur IV is the replay value, which is not very good because it's basically the same thing over and over again, just with new characters. SoulCalibur IV is worth buying, but expect to get bored after a couple hours.
