-      * I should elaborate: It's just a really average platform adventure thing, which was a format well worn out by the time the game was released (if you'd been a Nintendo guy), let alone by now, with no remarkable flourishes. +

     * Rudie: I find it a nice little game.  The Gamecube version isn't recommended because it eats an entire memory card [59].     * Rudie: I find it a nice little game.  The Gamecube version isn't recommended because it eats an entire memory card [59].

     * Silverboy: I consider it Japan'​s answer to //​[[game:​mdk_series|MDK]]//​. There'​s a lot more spatial awareness going on in that game than almost any other [[people:​shinji_mikami|Mikami]] game made before or after. Not as conscious as //MDK// spatially but far more so than most 3D action games coming out at that time. Hell, I would say most action games miss this nuanced element overall even to this day.\\ Might be one of Mikami'​s best, imo.     * Silverboy: I consider it Japan'​s answer to //​[[game:​mdk_series|MDK]]//​.

     * Felix: The only Soul Calibur sequel that wasn't totally unnecessary,​ and yes, the Gamecube'​s video output was the only option that did justice to the Dreamcast original in those days. Takes too long to unlock Hwang/​Assassin.     * Felix: The only Soul Calibur sequel that wasn't totally unnecessary,​ and yes, the Gamecube'​s video output was the only option that did justice to the Dreamcast original in those days.

     * gatotsu2501:​ Short of a drunken orgy, it is physically impossible to have more fun with one to three people on your sofa. The 2D fighting hardcore may loathe it for "​pandering"​ to neophytes, but in actuality I don't think I've ever seen another multiplayer game manage to so perfectly balance accessibility and depth. The playability of this game is quite literally endless.     * gatotsu2501:​ Short of a drunken orgy, it is physically impossible to have more fun with one to three people on your sofa.
