I played SB as a kid so i was always familiar with the series but i was unfortunate enough not to own a PS2 until 2006 thus SC3 was the 1st of the 'calibur' series that I owned. Anyway all the 'bad for tournaments' and 'broken game' comments aside I really enjoyed this game! My freinds and I had alot of fun with VS and character creation (especially the Special vs slipery stage) and their was an almost never ending ammount of unlockables! Old characters Hwang and Li Long even made an appearance and they were favourites of mine from SB. Also it had numerous fighting styles that werent at all related to the main cast of characters which I think puts SC3s character creation above SC4s! What do you guys think? Do any of you have a soft spot for this game?
