Let’s just put it this way, if you have a Dreamcast and there isn’t a “Soul Calibur” Disk sitting close by then you’re getting ripped off.100DC Swirl
Stunning 3D backgrounds, convincingly animated (to put it mildly) characters and superfluous effects are carried out in fine style with no hint of slowdown, all the while running in glorious high-res.100Hot Games

As a fighting game it’s really good, but not for me. Just not enough meat on the bones.60B00tador
This game was amazing, but it was really only a sign of things to come. Technically, this game is a marvel, and is a must-play for anyone interested in the history of fighting games.70AngerIssuez
