Soul Calibur Legends
This was the first game i got when i got the wii, and i loved it. i had it for GC, and it was fun, but on wii the sword swinging action is amazing, while i was a little disappointed to see that you still had some of the same characters, it was very fun and challenging. if you like prince of persia, soul calibur, red steel, or any fighting game (mortal combat, street fighter) this would be a step-up. for wii this is an extra fun game, you feel the experience. it has great graphics, and sound, with cool special kik* moves, i tell you what. although the story line is kinda the same as the others, it's still very fun game. I would highly recommend this for a mortal kombat, or tekken fan. you will absolutely love it! great game, worth your money.
This was a very intresting game. When I heard of this, it immediately caught my attention, and I thought it was a good game. The challenge of this game is pretty good, sometimes you'll just be overwhelmed with enemies, but you still slaughter them. The interface was pretty good. I thought the special moves in the game were just awsome. Seigfrieds special deffinately stand out. The unlockable weapons were cool, but very time consuming to get. The character balance was ok, I was hoping for more characters, but oh well. The graphics and animation were good for the Wii. The sound is good. The storyline was pretty intresting, I love how in the end, you "assistant" just backstabs you and becomes this overwhelming powerful enemy. Overall, I enjoyed this game, but it could use some touch ups.
Lloyd Irving To Be A Guest Character!
Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia is joining the cast of Soulcalibur Legends as a guest character in this game. It makes the game even greater then it was before!
Just needs some improvement on waving the remote.
This game is good for a first 3rd person soul calibur game. They should've put some more work into the gameplay. But everything else was good about this game.
Love this game
i thought i might like this game because i love all the Soul Caliburs and i found this game and i was right i love this game i play it all the time but it does a number on your arm
The Bearer of Bad News
So I really hate to harp again and again on the Wii, but I have to raise a red flag on this one. First, it is already proven that the Wii nun-chuck is not very lifelike, which might ruin the whole SC experience. Yes, I agree that interacting with your character is awsome, but if the controller does not create a lifelike representation/simulation, then it doesn't matter if you are the best SC player in the world, if you can't execute the moves that you want to. Also, the graphics on th Wii are a step and a half behind Sony and Microsoft, so we'll have to see what the screenshots tell us about impending graphics...
A rundown of the game
In Soulcalibur Legends, follow the 16th century exploits of Siegfried and Soul calibur characters, new and old as they find themselves on a quest for ultimate power in order to save an empire from destruction. Using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk as the weapons of choice, players perform moves and combos using orchestrated slashes and movements. Sword fighting capabilities are pushed to the limit as gamers unleash special attacks to crush scores of enemies and large bosses. Acquire honored titles such as Knight or Soldier as you master special attacks acquired throughout the adventure while battling through diverse stages and environments. With multiple modes of play and the help of familiar faces, the Soulcalibur universe will be viewed in an entirely new light.
Namco, you have disappointed me.
Words can not be expressed as to how much this game sucks. My feelings were crushed as I started playing. What were the Namco creators using while making this game? I was throughly upset with the mash-up of the enemies, and the poor design and plot of the story. Namco, you can do better than this.
okay I have to shorten this becasue for some reason the review filter isn't accepting what i had. Please be warned this game only looks visually appealing but the game play of player vs computer is extremely unbalanced. the game play is also full of lag, no matter how fast you can move the remote your character still doesnt' respond properly nor does it respond timely there is a time delay that sometimes proves to be fatal. This game steals some of the best parts from Mortal Kombat and Devil May Cry - two well respected games that have been proved over time - MK especially- to be classics and greatest hits. Sad part is this game host potential but it got wasted. 3 out of 10 stars
Not Worthy of the Soul Calibur Title
As a fan of the Soul Calibur series (I have played 2, 2 HD online, 3, 4, Broken Destiny, and 5), I figured I would try out Legends. It is a poorly made third person hack and slash.
Gameplay consists of entering rooms, being "ambushed", randomly swinging the Wii remote, fighting with the lock on system, and moving on to the next room to repeat. At the early stages of the game this just feels repetitive but later stages become frustrating when swarms of enemies start attacking at staggered intervals which means you have to keep blocking. This makes the timed missions very hard. Most stages end with a boss fight. The quality of these range from mediocre, and broken, dodge and remote waggle fests to atrocious almost impossible fights where you have to hack at the boss after their "super attack." This is made harder since the playable characters move as fast as snails and the bosses, and most regular enemies, can move like cheetahs.
The story mode is the main portion of the game which is an odd choice for a game claiming to be part of Soul Calibur. As much as I like the real Soul Calibur games, I must admit the story is the weakest link of the series. This game is no exception. It consists mainly of still drawings of the characters and text dialogue where every other line consists of "..."
The graphics are rather bland. Personally, I feel the graphics of the Gamecube version of Soul Calibur II were superior. Considering everything about this game feels rushed and sloppy, this is not much of a surprise.
The multiplayer mode feels tacked on and fights quickly become waggle duels where the winner feels completely up to the whim of the detection system. New arenas and weapons are unlocked as the single player mode is completed, but they feel pretty much same.
The music was decent, but who buys a game just to listen to the music. Other sound effects were generic and the voice acting was terrible.
My Advice: Stay far away from this game that tarnishes the Soul Calibur name. Seek your hack and slash fix elsewhere.
