    Not sure how many of you remember this game or the Dreamcast console, but this was a great time waster for me once upon a time almost 20 years ago. Namco is asking a bit much for this game at $6.67 (how that got that number, I have no idea, but they should drop it by 1 cent. Would fit the game better).

    Here is the link for those with nostalgia. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.namcobandaigames.soulcaliburgp

    Sold.

    I loved the Dreamcast. So freaking misunderstood and ahead of it's time. Sega was always pushing the envelope back then and people just didn't understand. I'm glad some classic Sega games are experiencing a rebirth on phones and the Nintendo DS. I wish Sega had been a part of the more recent console wars. Now it's basically just Sony VS MS with Nintendo being labeled for the casual folks.

    I loved this game back in the day. $6 is a small price to pay for a nostalgia trip!

    Downloading this now on my S4 and galaxy tab. I used to play this game about 10 years ago. Excited to play it again.

    I loved my Dreamcast. I got it on launch day, and was the last actual console system I purchased with the intent of being a "hardcore gamer"

    And Soul Calibur was a perfect 10 game when it dropped. It got everything right.

    I've had the iOS version for awhile, and if the android version is an equally good port, jump all over.

    If you are running 4.4, don't buy it yet. Appears there are issues with KitKat. Just get a black screen and nothing else. My guess is the graphic drivers aren't updated by the developer yet.

    Man, I loved my Dreamcast. Up there with first PlayStation as one of my fav consoles ever. Love Namco. Actually my gaming days really ended with the Dreamcast / PS2 era. It started with the NES.

    If Sega can get Shenmue I and II on a mobile, I would be all over it. I know it was a big flop financially for Sega. But man, I love the ambiance from that game! So relaxing to play. Shame they left us hanging.

    I honestly dont care of any ports from the 7th gen of gaming (Xbox 360 + PS3 era). I'm content with Dreamcast / PS2 graphics already. I just love a good story with good gameplay. And I dont want the game files to be that big.

    The game is too easy and finished too quickly. It only has 8 rounds:(

    So in other words, it's not worth it?

    I messed around with Soul Caliber back in the day BUT the most awesome game I ever played in my life was available on the Dreamcast. It was a jet ski game for which the name of it escapes me at the moment. I spent hours upon hours playing it.
