Rated 7 out of 10 by EpicDeny Ideal for people who need to unleash the beast.
Alright, I love Soul Calibur. The graphism are just great even for a PS2 game, the different level are still pretty similar to the previous game but the landscape are not really the first argument to buy this game. The diversity of the characters available is pretty good, and the songs are enjoyable even though they are really repetitive. Now the rest, in order to unlock all the weapons, armor, bonuses, etc, you will have to be determined. Indeed, first of all finish every character story, but you might have to do it again and again since you will need money to buy bonuses. However in order to unlock some bonuses or character you will need to play the "chronicles" which is kind of a story mode. Interesting idea completely unfinished. 2 minutes, it is the time I played before being bored. So, in the end, I LOVE Soul Calibur because I like to play without really thinking sometimes, even though in order to become really good the timing required to block, etc you will have to train.
Rated 10 out of 10 by GpB217 SOUL CALIBUR AT ITS FINEST... & here's why...
What made this the best Soul Calibur was its "Chronicles of the Sword" mode. In this you could create characters as well as use characters in the story. This kind of reminded me of Dynasty Warriors but you control units where to go on the map & you can either attack them from there or go into a 1v1 battle. How you healed was either go to a base or wait till you return to the battle after dying which isn't too long. This wasn't just a pointless level up game either. It involved ambushes & strategy. Also, eventually you get to send out 3-4-5-6-7-8 I forget characters at once which means you & your friends can all take turns telling your characters what to do & fight as your characters making plays to beat your way through 20 long & fun missions. "Cronicles of the Sword is a story with cut scenes & is entirely made up of created characters so it's originality is off the charts. I still come back to play it. It's a must own for PS2 owners who love great games. I can only go so in depth & describe this as well as I can but nothing beats playing it first hand. Check this one out!
Rated 10 out of 10 by MIBster Best Fighting and Create character game
this is by far the most impressive game when it came to the amount of content of a fighter, introducing the custom character concept into the series. the amount of fighting styles that are in this game are the most bountiful I've ever seen, and the story is so in depth with the quick time and choice paths during cut scenes.
If the English dub is unbearable then just switch the language to Japanese.
compared to 4 and 5, the classes like I said are the most enjoyable with unlockable classes even those of the main characters.
also the opening is one of my favorite.
So go buy it and have some fun with your friends
PS. beware the conquest glitch, look into that before deleting memory card content
Rated 10 out of 10 One of the best!
Not only is this the first Soulcalibur game that I've played, but it's also the first fighting game. It is safe to say that I never looked back. The graphics are so amazing and colorful for a PS2 game, and the soundtrack is outstanding. There's a vast choice of characters to choose from, so you always end up having at least one favorite. Even if none of the characters are to your liking, you can always create your own character. To take that a step further, you can have a created character star in Chronicles of the Sword, which is twenty chapters of war tactics and storyline. If I didn't own this game currently, I would immediately go to the nearest GameStop and pick up a copy of this game, even though there are more recent installments of the series out.
Rated 10 out of 10 by PS2Pirate The Game is more fun than its predecesor&succesor
Soul Calibur III has a slew of unlockable, and rewarding content, unlike its predecessor and succesor soul calibur 4, it also is a high-end graphics for a PS2 Game, characters look more polished, and have more detail.
The Gameplay is superb, and more smooth and fluent. this combined with the enhanced graphics make for an excellent experience.
The new character creation was a blast, though a little costly.
the Story was verty informative
The Sound is what might really win you over, if the stage had a waterfall you'd could hear it over the games orchestrated pieces.
there many new characters to use an overall you might get a solid 5 years out this game if you had a friend to play with.
The array of modes also adds to the experience. try soul arena
Rated 10 out of 10 by dissatisfied0customer its all about customization
this game is amazeing all around, but the customization is what truely pleased me. there are hundreds of pieces to unlock for youre character from head to toe. i will say there are things like wings and such that woulda been nice, but what this game offers is better than anything else ive seen on ps2. and im very happy to learn a little more of the soul calibur story. the prequels irritated me by just dropping u into fights without really giveing a story.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Leo1Dude This action game is one of the best action games
This fighting game is fun. You can play as a lot of diverse and strong fighters in the game. I recommend buying this game for ps2 and inviting a friend or two over and playing versus mode with them. It's pretty fun.
Rated 9 out of 10 by ItCouldOnlyBeJared An amazing weapon-based fighting game for the PS2
Soulcalibur III is a great weapon-based fighting game. I don't really pay attention to the storyline but it seems interesting if you want to read about the characters stories and stuff. With the ability to make a few custom characters, this is a very fun, interesting game for the Playstation2. The overall gameplay is pretty good. I mostly play on Tales of Souls mode. I would reccomend this to any action-loving gamer.

I had played this game when I was ten with my siblings. I had just recently come into contact with it again and not only has it not lost any of it's charm, but it has gained so much more of my respect. My siblings were sixteen when i was ten, and now that i'm sixteen i can see what they loved so much about this game. it's just so great. a timeless fighting game. so much fun.
