    I finally got to play Soul Calibur Legends...

    Since this games release it's been bashed which I can understand considering people we're expecting a lot because of this franchise's pedigree as well as namco usually making good games. So because of how bad this game was received I rented it the other day expecting to be extremely displeased with it.

    I've watched several videos prior ,and I kept thinking it reminds me of a 3D Golden Axe. So I went in expecting this to be just like that with Soul Calibur splattered on it.

    In which I feel thats what we really get is like Namco's version of a 3D Golden Axe. Golden Axe along with any beat'em up was move forward fight some bad guys the arrow tells you to go you move forward ,and repeat. We get the same effect here except no arrow just doors opening lol.

    I'm not saying this game isn't without its flaws because it has many I have so many ideas in what I think would of been the right way to develop this as action adventure title ,but i'm not going to get into that.

    In the end I've been having fun with it just expecting to get a Golden Axe-ish experience out of it which it pretty much offers. Play Golden Axe on VC then play this you'll see what I mean.

    I've heard so many mixed reviews about this game.
    I may end up renting it sometime down the road as well.

    Most say the game is disappointing, but some like it. Should rent it and then buy it if you like it. Unless its kind of short? Then you could beat it and be done with it.

    I rented this one and was surprise to yet i though all the beat em up fans had died in some horrible plain crash or some thing. You are so on point about the golden ax reference. Yes some thing could be changed but I also played the co op with my brother. Me and him grew up crushing co op games when we where younger and he liked it too.
    If a part two comes out with more best em up strategy in it i may go out and get this one. No more heros got the beat em up right though. I didn't get to beat it so maybe SC will get more intense yet i won't know unless i get it again. It should have been more over the top though fighting wise.

    Really though as a gamer you should rent most games for your self. Bad reviews are there to kill the hype troll..LOL

    i rented this game about a month or so ago and it was better than i thought it would be. sure its repetitive, but it doesn sort of deliver on where its supposed to. though i dont think the counts as an adventure game. its very linear. but fun while it lasts, not worth a buy but definatly worth a rent.
