I picked this game up the other day looking forward to testing it out and surely did get that chance.
From many of the advertisements on the internet there is a lot of hype about a co-op mode. If you are buying this game for co-op play think again! It is not really co-op but has about three co-op level run throughs. A buddy and myself played through all three and turned the game off for a little while after the first miserable experience. Other than that there are three VS. levels to be played along with three special competitive challenges. A total of nine different co-op levels. The VS mode displays a similar Soul Calibur feel we've all seen before. The competitive challenges consist mainly of things such as collecting more items or killing more enemies than the other player. This is basically all co-op has to offer.
As far a the campaign goes, well the story is ok. Obviously another story about Soul Edge and the power contained in the weapon.
Graphics in the game are the biggest let down. The game looks awful. 64-bit graphics through the game including in-between gameplay videos. Some videos consist of anime and voice-acting which is another let down.
Controlling the charcter is difficult as far as completing combos and hitting enemies correctly. Mainly all attacks are simply controlled by moving the Wii Remote in specific directions. Jumping is controlled by pressing B which feels awkward. I felt that A should have been jump but that wasn't too big of an issue.
There is a lacking of Characters from what I've seen. I haven't been able to unlock any atm and I'm unsure if that is even possible but the available characters aren't very good IMO.
If anyone wants to add to this go right ahead. I need to get further into the game before I have more input. But from what I've seen this game is a crash and burn. Pretty much, the developers were just looking to make a quick few bucks rather than a good game.
