-style one-on-one fighting is one thing, but fighting with weapons is completely different. Soul Calibur II
continues the tradition set by Soul Blade
and the Dreamcast Soul Calibur
with intense action and plenty of weapons to deal the massive blows.
A majority of the action takes place in Weapon Master mode, as you choose a character and travel a set map to fight the many other warriors through a collection of different terrain styles and challenges. One minute you'll be fighting in quicksand; the next you'll have to defeat an opponent by only using throwing attacks.
Other modes include the usual arcade, survival, and practice modes, and multiplayer options for two people to battle it out.
Each version of Soul Calibur II also includes a unique character for the platform. Spawn appears on Xbox, Link from The Legend of Zelda series
can be found on GameCube, and Tekken
fighter Heihachi finds his way to PS2.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
Link from The Legend of Zelda
is an exclusive playable character for the Nintendo GameCube version. This is the second gaming series that he has broken away from the adventure-style gaming to be a playable character in a fighting game. The first series was Super Smash Bros
The character Necro, who appears in all three console versions of Soul Calibur II
, was created by Todd McFarlane
for the game. He also created Spawn, who is exclusive to the Xbox version.
While the Heihachi (in the PS2 version) and Yoshimitsu characters are from the Tekken series
, the Soul Calibur
version of Yoshimitsu is considered to be from another time, and is in no way related to the Tekken
Yoshimitsu, even though they share the same look, moves, and background (both are leaders of the Manji party, a Robin Hood-esque group, and both are missing their right arms).
