The control scheme for the Wii is pretty easy to use and the graphics are solid, the main gripe I have is the gameplay itself. This game is incredibly easy and the levels are extremely repetitive. The story moves along at a decent pace, it just really isn't that interesting. All that being said, play this game. I just wouldn't shell out 50 bucks for it. I haven't had any of my buddies over since I got the game so the multiplayer action might redeem SC: L, but it took me only a few hours of play to beat the Quest mode.
Legends is a good addition to the Soul mythos, I just can't recommend this game to anyone but a completionist.
Ultimately, how you view this game depends purely on your preferences. Soul Calibur Legends shares characters and a storyline from the Soul Calibur series - that's it.
Let me try it this way: if you like Streets of Rage or Final Fight (which I do), you'll probably like this game. If you liked Sword of the Berserk, you'll be extremely familiar with, and enjoy, this style of game. If you're a hardcore Soul Calibur fan yearning for a more in-depth back story than what the Soul Calibur series provides in character endings, you may or may not like this game. If you're looking purely for an in depth combat game for the Wii like... hmm, oh, the Soul Calibur series, you will not like this game. And as we see from previous reviews, this is generally the case.
As far as action games go, the story arc is fairly in-depth; though, compared to RPGs, the storyline is almost non existent. The game assumes you know these characters, so there's very, very little character development for playable characters. Sometimes irritatingly, we learn much too much about the NPCs.
Repetition is the hallmark of beat 'em ups. There's no getting around that, otherwise Final Fight would've been a five minute game. If you're not a fan of or cannot tolerate mindless repetition, steer clear. Where this game shines is the combat system, which is tailored beautifully for the Wii.
Instead of the repetitive button mashing, almost all fighting controls are done with the nunchuk and wii-mote.Read more ›
There's not much of a story here. You get to watch a cutscene take place and get an introduction as to what's going on, but from there the story becomes a confusing mess. It almost makes no sense. That aside, you'd think the gameplay would be something to admire but that may very well be the worst part about this game. There's really not much to it and sometimes it's just downright unfair.
You'll go into a level by selecting a character a two companions. You see some of your favorite Soul Calibur characters like Astorath, Sophitia and Taki. You'll even be able to play as Lloyd Irving of Tales of Symphonia fame. The controls aren't bad here. By swinging the Wii Remote you'll be able to do horizontal and vertical slashes. You'll use the Nunchuck to move your character around. You can also block attacks, perform charged attacks and strife around. The motion sensor controls of swinging the remote for sword swipes feels a little tacked on at times, though. It isn't that, which is annoying about the controls. What's annoying is that there is no challenge to the game whatsoever. If you simply swing the wii remote horizontally or vertically like a madman you'll have no problem fairing in combat.
You're also approached by the same enemies over and over again. This wouldn't really be a problem if there were a variety of them. It's basically the same three things over and over again.Read more ›
Just so you get the right idea:
1) You cannot play this game with anything but the wiimote + nunchuck.
2) The nunchuck's accelerometer is the single most used control in the game
3) Reread #2. If you honestly don't understand why its so bad that the single most important function of the game - accurate dodging - is using the s***tier accelerometer in your non-dominant hand, you don't know anything about fighting games.
4) Holy crap. This entire game is hack and slash with dodging. If dodging were actually capable of being done accurately. But I digress on the dodging. Your right arm will fall off. There is simply nothing to do, you just walk, avoid stupid obstacles (like blind-corner rolling boulders LOLOL so much fun!) and flail your right arm around like a lunatic.
5) The designers of this game thought a good way to design boss fights was to make bosses have toggle-able invincibility. Let me explain how this works. Whenever you get close enough to attack a boss, they will become invincible and all your attacks will be repelled. I'm not even kidding either. That's actually what you will face if you buy this game and attempt to play it. You will literally be sitting on your couch, trying to clear a boss fight, carefully dodge all the boss' abilities (or at least attempt to, see #2), and then run up to him and start flailing your right arm, only to hear the "parry" sound and notice you did absolutely nothing. Soul calibur, a game based on combos and traditional 2d fighting game mechanics, employs bosses that cannot be comboed for more than 2 hits. Seriously astoundingly terrible.
Do not play this game.
Do not buy it.
