Rated 7 out of 10 by Darkganon15 Intresting.
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.

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.
Rated 9 out of 10 by RageAgainstMachine96' GREAT GAME!
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.
Rated 3 out of 10 by Kala Horrible
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

Although graphics are a thing to want. that was something wii sacrificed for amazing gameplay, and as such, there may be special things such as mini games for this that seperate it from any other ps or xbox version. People, the wii-mote is your freind, love it, and learn that you can swing a wii-mote like a stick or a sword towards the sky, in front of you, and towards the ground in order to attack the enemy, while using the nunchuk to maneuver around the arena. Why is it most people want to be classic? If you want classic play the xbox or ps version of this game, if you want to be part of the revolution of gaming then play this. I know i will.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Pierre This game is going to be great
I've played SC I, SC II, SC III, (I didn't play the Dreamcast one) but I know that I am going to LOVE this one. That's because the game has a little RPG elements in it mixed in the vigorous fighting. For example - changing weapons, dungeons, and a story for each character to defeat the evil soul edge and to capture soul caliber. In particular, SC II had a different character for each game - the Xbox had Spawn, the PS2 had some Tecken guy, and the Gamecube had Link from all those Zelda games. I hope that they have Link in this one too. If you like fighters and or just love the Wii this is a must buy
Rated 6 out of 10 by TheSwanStation Boring and has a formula-feeling
This is the only Soul Calibur game I have ever played and boy it was lacking. It wasn't bad, per say, but it wasn't good either. The game tries to spew plot at you but it just doesn't stick. My biggest problem with this game is the very annoying and repetitive layout. The mission trail style got old really quickly; I liked them in old RTS games (but then the missions were more fun). It just felt like a long to-do list--one that's out of order! I felt like I was hopping from location to location with little explanation of why. In addition, most of the areas are reused for different objectives. I seem to remember going back to each place at least two or three times (with the same music each time--the music loops a lot in this game). Be prepared for this game to feel like a math formula; you'll find "x" after the third mission (meaning you'll get the hang of it)--then you'll wish you never found "x" in the first place! The good stuff: the special moves were entertaining and the variety in characters lessened (a little) the mundane aspect that is so prominent in this game. On the topic of characters, a few were actually interesting and somewhat dynamic. The controls were actually decent; this is definitely a game that makes use of the Wii controls. But the lackluster layout of the game destroys what little good qualities this game has. I don't think I'd recommend this game to anyone.

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...
Rated 0 out of 10 by Cageddog Look at it this way...
Alright for those of you who say that the oul aliber games are hard to control ill have to lean with you on that. But, Just a little word of reinsurance after handling Mortal Combat for the Wii i know that they will utilize all of the wii-motes greatness and make the game easy to play without compromising the spirit of the the game, or most important how much fun the game is with...out compromising the soul of the game. So hey if you want my opinon dont be afraid to go out to Blockbuster and rent or buy it Good Gaming, Cageddog
Rated 6 out of 10 by nintenjo This is not Soul Calibur.
I will have to say, that this game is slightly fun. The main problem is, this is not Soul Calibur. The story line is even barely the same. This is more of a search around game and not a side to side fighting game. You basically walk around and kill whatever, and after a while, the levels seem to get very repetitive. If you want Soul Calibur, don't get this game. If you wanna play this game when you're bored and have nothing else to do, then this is a fine game to get especially at its price.
