Fair

Almost, but not quite

When you think Soulcalibur, you think "Wow that game HAS to be amazing". I guess thats not always true. The single player Quest mode in this game is relatively easy. I've only spent 2 hours playing it, I've already reached Chapter 4, and I've only died once and that was against these two bosses that you have to fight, and even then the battle was very close. The game play is good, I like how you can swing the remote and attack while moving your guy around with the control stick. The graphics are also pretty good as well.

The story line is alright, but this one character keeps talking about his home country and his sister's bread... so far I haven't found any meaning behind that, it seems like mindless rambling. There are only 6 or 7 characters to choose from, which is no where near being awesome.

The two player mode is pretty good, but I haven't played it extensively. So if you are just looking for a game where you can swing your remote around and get an idea of how sword fighting games for the Wii are, then by this game; otherwise stay away from it.

A good game at the beginning. After a few stages, you have to go back and repeat the same stage with a few twists, gets old after awhile. The controls seem to favor one attack over the other three, most of the time. The storyline is easy to follow, but it does get cheesy sometimes. Overall, it's a likable game

Controls:
Soulcalibur Legends has surprisingly tight game control. Although, experienced gamers may find the lack of technique boring or stiff, while a beginner will find it fun and innovative. The play mechanics are very well done and controller interface is simplistic. Character movement is near-flawless with the Nunchuk, and with a flick of the wrist, the Remote makes it that much more rewarding. The game controls do suffer from the occassional hiccup at the worse possible times, but easily overcome with some practice.
Graphics:
The average Wii gamer is already well aware of Nintendo's decision to pass up superior graphics for the element of sheer excitement. In other words, ditch a breathtaking graphics processor for hands on fun. Soulcalibur Legends, is no exception to this rule. The graphics are very basic lacking depth and detail. Often, levels look cloudy and repetitive in design. Which is disappointing considering the Soulcalibur games of past sport gorgeous, colorful graphics.
Difficulty:
The game honestly has none, however it does begin to increase towards the climax. Changing from "yawn fare" to downright frustrating.
End Result:
With repetitive enemies, simplistic movement, short "go to point A to point B" stages, once in a while bad camera angles, and horrible voice-over Soulcalibur Legends is still a fun first attempt adventure for the Nintendo Wii. A rental unless you can buy it for under $20.
