Re: Soulcalibur 2 HD Online coming this fall

I'm just gonna quote myself from the 'impulse buys' thread, use this as a cautionary tale should you decide to buy for nostalgic purposes.

cha cha wrote:Soulcalibur 2 HD Online. It was one of my all-time favorite fighters and a game I won many tournaments in. What could possibly go wrong with this $20 digital purchase?

Let's see... There is NO online lobby system (wtf year is this?), therefore after every match, you are booted back out to the MAIN MENU... even after you INVITE someone (you have to keep reinviting ugh). The netcode sucks, which is a total step backwards from Tekken Tag 2 and SC5... games made by the SAME COMPANY. There is about 2-3 frames of input lag...in OFFLINE matches. Other than the badly implemented netplay, there are no added features (they couldn't even be bothered with adding the arcade conquest mode, which was awesome and could have been done online to great effect).

Just overall a horrible port, and total cash in on the nostalgia of arguably the best SC game of all time.

Worst yet? I bought it on both XBL and PSN before even trying it...to support my "favorite" FG company. Bastards. $40 down the drain.

wow, you get booted back to the main menu after every match in a game where matches last seconds? Ouch.
