My Journey into Game Pass - SoulCalibur
After that quick dip into The King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match
I got a bit of a taste for fighting games again. At least as much as the average button-masher can get. So I thought I would return to a game from a series that I've always rather enjoyed, SoulCalibur
. This is looking like another easy completion having already unlocked 10 of 12 Achievements and coming close on the two I'm missing.

There are a number of things to like here. The game isn't so old that it would have that really rustic polygonal look. The visuals are sharp and the variety of character and weapon designs is very refreshing. Most notably though, the action is fast and quick.
Many matches are over in under 20 seconds, and with a few well-placed moves you can end a match in about seven. Big hits take off big damage, and the fights feel less like chopping down a tree and more like actually putting down an opponent. The opportunity for a ring-out exists on every stage as well, which can turn the tide of a melee in a real hurry.
It took a bit of time to refamilarize myself with the controls, having last played the series on Sega's Dreamcast and the early days of the Nintendo GameCube. But the familiar nuances returned and I was able to quickly blast through Arcade mode with all 19 characters in under 2 hours
There has been a certain air of familiarity among the titles I've played so far. So next time out I'm pulling something from the library that is nothing like anything else I've played. Come back next time to find out which one it will be. Thanks for reading.Stats for the Game Pass Journey so far:
