I own that game.
as in I whooped it's *** on it.
Back when it was Soul Edge for Playstation 1, I played it constantly. Mitsurugi is my favorite guy to play as. You get the cheap combo hits in the air and everything
Then when Soul Calibur came out on Dreamcast, a bunch of people at my school were going to be playing a tournament. I knew I could win if I practiced enough. I picked Mitsurugi and played him at the hardest level against the computer and played for a couple hours straight.
The next day I went to my friend's place and my final record for that night was something like 56-1. I quit playing after I finally got beat, it was a really fun night lol
Soul Calibur 2 is also pretty fun, it does get cheesey sometimes but you just gotta dish out the same lameness on the computer too.
