By now, gamers out there are well aware of the SOULCALIBUR’s availability as an iOS Universal game application. We’ve already done an iPad video app review for this 3D fighting game and gave it a rave review, minus a simple navigation glitch that still exists today. The iPhone version of this game is just as good, which means it is great, but the screen size for working the controls is cramped. The controls themselves worked well and I found it easy to beat the snot out of my opponents using the virtual joystick on the left and the 4 action buttons on the right. The graphics while ported over still look really good, and anyone who has played this at the arcade or on a console will feel right at home. There are of course 19 different characters, numerous game modes and unlockable content, both characters and game content.
This app came out in January and still there is a missing navigation (glitch) in both survival modes (Survival and Extreme Survival), that being a missing pause button to take you back to stop the action or take you back to the main menu system. While this is not a huge deal, it is kind of significant if you figure the app is priced in the premium range at $11.99 — which is also 20% off as an introductory special. If you are going to sell an app at that price, it needs a navigation path to get back to the main menu from every one of the game modes. I only purchased this app to review on our site and on YouTube, but if I were you, I’d put this on my app wish list on AppShopper or another app that notifies you of price drops, because $11.99 to me is way overpriced when you compare an app like this to Infinity Blade II, which sells for only $6.99 and at that price is loads better than this game. What do you think, do you think this app is priced right, sound off below. For more iPhone video app reviews. Crazy Mike
