SoulCalibur 2 HD Online is everything the original was and more. Stunning full-screen, 1080p visuals and the inclusion of the full-fat single-player mission mode make this an essential download at $19.99/£15.99
Soul Calibur II is an excellent fighting game that’s aged well, and this HD version is very faithful to the original. We’re puzzled by the price tag, though, as you can get Soul Calibur V for the same money.
Soul Calibur II HD Online is just a regular conversion sold at a too high price to appeal everyone but the most addicted fans.
Soul Calibur II HD Online is the lovely comeback of the best Soul Calibur game so far, with its well balanced roster and the solid combat system. The Weapon Master mode is still awesome and both the HD graphics and the Online modes are good extra. But the 18.99 euros asked for buying the game is a high price for an HD remake. Too high, actually.

Despite this being one of the best 3D fighters of a generation, it's hard to recommend SoulCalibur II HD Online due to a silly price tag and some seriously poor online multiplayer implementation. The SoulCalibur name deserves more than this.
