Eric Vs. 365 - Day 299 - Soul Calibur II

Soul Calibur II was the first game I ever got multiple copies of. I mean, I pretty much HAD to since Link was exclusive to the GameCube version and I just had to have it even though I got a PS2 copy to review. Didn't give a crap about Spawn, though, so I never bothered with the Xbox version. Ah, good times. Today's game is the XBLA version of Soul Calibur II. Read more and watch gameplay here.

Not much to say about Soul Calibur II, honestly. It's arguably the best Soul Calibur, but all of them offer something unique and play slightly differently so I honestly like all of them. 

Something interesting about the HD Online XBLA version of Soul Calibur II is that, unlike almost every other fighting game re-release for the platform, it didn't have everything unlocked from the start. That's great and I love it, because I actually like having to unlock stuff in fighting games. It isn't so great, though, when you're trying to record a game video and don't have anything unlocked. Womp womp.
