High price good game

More than one character wears a thong like clothing and tight fitting clothing mostly for female character so it gets sort of bouncy when they jump you can impale peeps I guess but there's no blood or anything like that there's only one thing that's actually pretty bad it's the fact that you can hit the person when there down and they scream in some cases but it's still a great game yes 15 buck (yes it went up) is high but it's really fun and there's local multiplayer but unlocking characters feels great and you can really change all the controls like wow I love this series so I had to buy it and it wasn't really a let down but I did think there was online multiplayer :(

Is It Any Good?

Given how many other arcade and console games have made it to iDevices, it was only a matter of time before SOULCALIBUR made the leap. But in moving the popular fighting game over, the developers left some of its most popular features out. And to make matters worse, they opted to charge substantially more than other apps.

The game looks pretty good -- and it's certainly fun for a short period -- but whether you'll find $12 worth of entertainment here is highly debatable, especially with the controls dominating the screen to the point that it's sometimes hard to see what's going on. Should you find this for $5 or less, it's worth a look, but otherwise, save your money for something more polished.
