I see some people have a lot to say about this game. It's awesome. Well, talk away! My favorite lineup includes Kilik, Cassandra, Yoshimitsu, Assassin, Lizard Man, and whoever else I feel like at the time.

I can't remember what my favorite line-up was (I haven't played in months and months). All I remember is I always led off with Link and had Kilik in the second spot.

woooooo! Soul Caliber!

As I've said in a different thread, I like this game. It's exciting and fun to play and watch. The matches are always dynamic and fast-paced. The game manages to be simple to pick up so my friends who haven't played it much can enjoy it, yet very deep and hard to master so people who do own it can get a lot out of the game. There's an endless amount of different strategies- I don't think I've ever played against an opponent who knew how to play the game who played the same as someone else.
My favorite character is Talim. I personally like speed and long combo strings over power and hard single strikes. I like getting ring outs, and with Talim its pretty easy to control the fight and push the opponent to the edge of the ring since she moves around so quickly. Her throws almost always send the opponent flying, and she's got some great juggles. Her biggest weakness is her range- it's kind of funny actually, since both my best and worst opponents are Astoroth and Ivy. If I can get in close and break their defenses, they almost always drop the ball and I slaughter them. But if they manage to get their long range horizontals working against me (Astoroth's swings cover half the freaking stage), I get stomped, since Talim is all about side stepping and jumping around.
Another silly weakness of Talim's is that, since she's so small and light, she often tends to "bounce" off foes when she hits them. She's always shifting her feet and jumping around, and a lot of her moves place the opponent behind or to the side of her- I sometimes jump right off the stage after pulling off one of her moves without intending to. ::]

I've got Talim mostly down, and I'm working on Raphael so I can have a straight forward character with better range, and Cassandra so I could have a mix of power and speed.

And everybody likes Link, of course. I'm no exception. He roxxor.

It's not a stick. :P


Anyways, I think I'm O.K. with Talim, but I dunno since I can barely remember names. ::] Isn't it Asaroth? Oh well. :P Anyways, I hate Astaroth. I mean, someone who can cover the stage like that is just URGH! And Nightmare... :P

I always use Assassin against Nightmare and Astaroth. He's up close and, when you know how to play him, he can belt out long combos as well as strong one-hitters, even though I prefer the former. I so want to play this game right now I can barely think of anything else to say at the moment! :o

It is a win... 'cause Kilik keeps saying he likes "Catz." :D At least it SOUNDS like he says "Catz" :D Besides, I think using my combos on people is enough stress for them. :evil:

You kids are so cute.

Kilik is a very likeable character. Long range, fast verticals, vicious pokes, and he's very easy to learn and master. Generally, he seems to be considered as the perfect newbie choice, but I personally think he's good enough for the more advanced players. Just avoid using his slower horizontals and he turns out to be a solid fighter. He has a few sweep combos that are effective (while sidestepping, tap AAA- it's one of my favorites).

Nightmare! Reading through this thread suddenly jogged my memory. The line-up I always used was Link, Kilik, Nightmare, and whoever else I felt like using. ::] The theory was if I couldn't beat em with Link, I could mop up with Kilik, and if I still couldn't win with Kilik I would bust out my old freind Nightmare. :evil: Nightmare was the first character I was any good with, the only character I could use to beat my buddy at college last year. He had SCII on Xbox and he always used Spawn. ::]

Disciple if you ever get stuck on Zero Mission, ask me. I know the game inside and out.

The character I started with was Link. but once I unlocked Yoshimitsu, he became my primary character. I used to be devent with Ivy and I could pull off her ridiculously powerful combo throw, couldnt anymore though...

He's definetely quirky. You can hardly ever tell what he's gunna do next. It'd be interesting to see someone who could use him properly.
But otherwise, he's sure fun to squash into the ground. :)
