The control was great, tuned in pretty good, although the exact same motion didn't always produce the same attack, especially when you are flailing your arms to ward off the 12 or so baddies that are encircling you.

That's right, the new Soul Calibur game is a Hack-Em-Up adventure game where you are Siegfried and you are on a quest for power. You meet other familiar characters along the way and some new ones and there's some emotional drabbing on as you realize that power corrupts and stuff. Some of the exchanges between characters is corny, but it's a hack and slash game, what do you expect? There were some characters missing that I would've liked to see on the Wii, you only have 7 to choose from.

The 2 player party games are pretty decent. My girlfriend who is not really a gamer was entertained enough to play them more than once and she was just a bit sad to see it go back. Anyone can jump into this game and have success, the longer you play it the better you get at pulling off combos and annihilating your opponent, but any 6 year old can give you trouble from time to time.

This game is really cool. Your Wii remote is your sword which is makes this gamer really fun. If you stab then you will stab in the game. The bosses are hard which makes it fun. I've been playing this game 2 hours a day and really like it. You can also do a co-op mission with a friend or battle your friend. The only bad thing is that their are only 8 characters and i wish there were more.

Don't Trust The Ratings!

This game had a shockingly low rating, and I was surprised because I have loved this series so much over the years... and luckily I can tell you not to trust the rating.

The mechanics are great. I felt myself very invested in the slashing. It packs a quick punch, and I think it's definitely worth a rent.
