There are a lot of fighting games on the Playstation 2. The Playstation 2 is one of the first game consoles where I had the liberty of playing quality fighting games.
In this article, I am going to talk about SoulCalibur 2 Game for the Playstation 2. This is a fighting game where your main weapons are swords and other weapons of destruction.
The game’s main storyline revolves around Siegfried. After the events of the first Soulcalibur game, Siegfried was possessed by the ancient sword, Soul Edge.
The sword has immense powers because it saps the souls of any wounded or departed warriors. Siegfried turned into a character named “Nightmare” and he is so powerful; the only drawback is that Siegfried is not himself anymore.
After collecting enough souls for the ritual of renewal, Nightmare was confronted by three brave warriors. The warriors are there to avoid the ritual from ever starting so that the souls that were captured by the sword will rest in peace.
After the fierce battle, the three warriors were able to defeat Nightmare but the evil soul of the sword managed to punish the three warriors for their insolence.
Just when the evil soul from Soul Edge took its firm hold in the world, the good sword, Soul Calibur, was then given power by a being called “Krita Yuga”.
Because of the immense power of the Soul Calibur, Siegfried was freed from the bonds of the Soul Edge. Unfortunately, Soul Edge found its way back to its master, forcing Siegfried to once again change into the villainous Nightmare.
During the course of the game, the brave warriors are set to destroy Nightmare and the Soul Edge for good. Each individual characters will have their own ending after they’ve witnessed the destruction of the Soul Edge.
Now, why do I want to talk about SoulCalibur 2 Game for the Playstation 2? That is because the game is really good that a lot of people think so too.
This game received a constant stream of praises from players and game critics. In fact, most gaming pundits rated this game with a solid score of 9/10. That is pretty tough to beat, especially for a fighting game.
Furthermore, there are plenty of characters to choose from. There are four new characters introduced in the game and they are Cassandra, Talim, Raphael, and Yunsung.
Cassandra has similar fighting styles to that of Sophitia and Yunsung has a similar fighting style to that of Hwang.
If you’re familiar with Tekken games, there is also a character that mimics a random playable character’s moveset every round. That character is none other than Charade.
Soul Calibur 2 is a cross-platform game and this game is also available on the Nintendo Gamecube and the Xbox.
If you play different game console versions of the game, you will get a different bonus character.
If you play the Playstation 2 port, you will get Heihachi Mishima from Tekken. If you play the Nintendo Gamecube version, you will get to play Link from the Legend of Zelda games. And finally, if you play the Xbox version, you will unlock Spawn from Todd Mcfarlane’s epic comic book character.
Aside from the bonus characters, the game also showcases a lot of ancient fighting styles that utilize a sword or any other weapon that was used in those times.
That is why I highly recommend getting the SoulCalibur 2 Game for the Playstation 2 as it is a very memorable game with a lot of highs and no lows.
