Hey, is anybody excited about Soul Calibur 2? I think its safe to say its the most anticipated fighter to date and probably will be the best fighter ever. I preordered my copy on Xbox back in June so I've been waiting a while for this one. I think it gets released sometime in mid-august. Some magazines (like Electronic Gaming Monthly) already have reviewed it in their latest issue and they've all gotten great reviews. They all seem to be split on which version is best. They seem to like the PS2 controller best, Xbox's graphics and load times best, and seem to be tied on playing as Link and Spawn. For the uninformed, each version of SC2 has an exclusive playable character (Spawn on Xbox, Link on Gamecube, Tekken's Heihachi on PS2). What characters do you guys use? In the first Soul Calibur I tore it up with Kilik and Nightmare, and will probably do the same again. And I really want to play as Spawn. I wouldn't mind playing as Link in the GC version, but i still refuse to buy a GC because of the horrid controller and only a few "must have" games. I know theres alot of game nuts here so I know I can't be the only one who wants this game bad. And another cool tidbit: one of the new characters, Necrid, was designed by Todd McFarlane. Cool.
