Rated 10 out of 10 by ProtoBlade GREAT GAME
i thought this game was great. its story was long and challenging. it is also good for replay cause you can keep getting more and more money to get new and better weapons. and you can also keep getting better in arcade and play with a friend in team battle or against one in vs. also in extra mode you can use the weapons you bought in weapon master mode(story) and the computer will use them too. the graphics were okay and that is pretty good for the gamecube. the controls were great too because you could combine so many of the buttons and directions for different attacks. the characters were great too. i would say the best one is astaroth or voldo because astaroth is so powerful and voldo is so fluent. i wouldn't recommend them for beginners though because they have a lot of hard to master moves and they can be confusing. it is a great game. DONT RENT IT BUY IT.
Rated 7 out of 10 by GrandmaTsunade Such an incredible game.
This game is great. Except the story line it's a little cheap, but hey the battles are great. The controls are a bit confusing though, but once you get the hang of it you'll love it. Also the graphics and animations are great!. It almost looks like if the characters were real!. The unlockables are awsome, u can get so many things like swords, costumes, weapons, etc. You can also play with 2 people wich great, that makes the experience even better.I played this game in my friends house, then i got addicted to it and had to buy it. This is a really good game if you like action and fighting games.Also u should get Scalibur IV it's excelent as well. IV is a little bit better but still great.And when i played the game i also found a glinch were i can play as infierno which kickass. If u buy this game i promise you wont regret buying it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Mjjean4 I LOVE THIS GAME!
Now, when I first brought this game, I was wondering why they put Link from Legend of Zelda on this game. I thought he was going to get beat up. Then I used him and Link is one of the most cheapest characters put on Soul Calibur II. The game is awesome and I loved the dungeon levels where you unlock the weapons for all the characters. They also have a weapon master mode which is also like the story mode, but you can pick different kinds of weapons such as the soul edge or soul calibur. I recommend soul edge, although you lose health as you fight. They have three different versions of this game like spawn for xbox and heichachi from tekken for ps2 and I am glad I bought this one. Link is so cheap! He has bombs, arrows, boomerang and spin attack which makes it harder to fight him when going against the cpu. GET THIS GAME!

I love this game, I always play it!!! I love the characters, their customes, and the weapons. This game has good graphics and it is replayable. I has a good amount of characters and stages, has a good challege and it is fun to play with your friends and family. The game is long but the stroy is not very detailed but it is still a good game. The sound is pretty good, and it has very good unlockables. I also like the guest characters.( Link, Necrid, Assassin, and Berserker). The interface is good. I love the controls but some of the most can be hard to do if you dont practice enough.I like the extra feature on this game. The profiles, weapon profiles, and the pictures and video.Overall, this is a great, fun,and very addictive game. If you are a fighting game fan I recommed you to get it, it is worth every cent.
Rated 10 out of 10 by warrior of soulcalibur Excellent
Soul Calibur 2 is one of the best games out for the gamecube. It provides excellent challenge for both new and experienced players. The story mode of this game is full of fun, challenge, reward, and designed to keep you occupied for plenty of time so you won't get bored any time soon. As far graphics go, the character; look really awesome and full of detail, the weapons are at a perfect design and the arenas are full of lush and highly tuned ships, animals, fields, mountains, castles, skies, and more. The sound is 100% perfect and the lips are on time with the voice and the music is wonderful. The multiplayer is perfect for a whole bunch of friends to come over and play. Whether it's a regular duel or a tag battle you are guaranteed a very good game to play for months, maybe years to come.
Rated 9 out of 10 by icy988822 You can't get a better fighting game than this
This game is totally awesome! Best fighting game ever! Coolest characters (including Link) each with awesome fighting styles. This is like THE boredom cure. Usually with fighting games you play it for a week then it goes on your shelf and you never play it again. But not with this particular one.The fighting styles are totally awesome! Ultimate graphics and gameplay. Another cool thing is that there is like different modes. This game is for a few systems, but the cool thing is, each game has different characters like this gamecube one is the only one that has Link. This game totally beats out other fighting games like super smash bros. . :) Icy98822
Rated 10 out of 10 by blazingdrgn666 worth every cent i paid for it
before i even bought this game, i knew it was going to be even better than soul calibur and previous games in the series. i bought it on june 27th 2004 and i still play it to this day. the character balance was nearly perfect. cervantes and taki were both characters that i found to be a little cheap due to their speed and numerous powerful combos but other than that i see no problems in that area. the game for me was very challenging when it came to weapon master mode, particularly the dungeons and arenas that had multiple battle conditions such as er rai and the swordsmans grave. i take a point off due to how absurdly easy it is to win with a ring out especially with the larger characters such as nightmare and astaroth. also due to the fact that getting gold is fairly simple. the graphics to me were decent but i take points off because weapons usually were in the floor when opponents went down, and they could have had animated backrounds for the stages. gameplay is very long and a obvious improvement compared to soul calibur. i take off a point because the ranking system has very little bearing to how the game is played due to the fact that ranking does not affect strength speed or any other character attributes. the moves category is perfect due to the countless combos that can be executed by any character that is chosen, and for me that is crucial for any fighting game to have a long gameplay. overall i give it a 10.0 and it is in my top five for fighting games for sure. i hope this review has been found helpful to all that read it.

This game is so-so. At first I was really excited to play this game because I saw Link on the cover, but once I started playing the game I was quite upset. This game was fairly easily for me. Its more of a lower standards Mortal Combat. If you are a button masher I suggest you do not get this fame because you will beat it in less than 15 minutes. All in all this game did have a lot action and it did somewhat satisfy my craving for fighting.

If you love to fight like crazy, then this game is for you. Has a lot of modes to choose from. The one for the ps2 is the same as this one, the difference is the newbie characters. On the ps2, the newbie is Heihachi Mishima from Tekken. For the Gamecube, the newbie is Link from Legend of Zelda. It's your choice to pick which version you like. But either way, this game is addictive. It's worth the fun and money.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Namalator BEST GAME EVER CREATED.(aside fromOcarina of Time)
I love this game intensely. It's flat out one of the best games ever created. Soul Caliber 3 was terrible compared to it's predecessor, I did like the newer moves, combos, and characters, but the story line and other things were just awful. I've played this game too many times to count and have beaten it on just about every character two or more times, I could and never will get tired of it.
