4 virtual buttons and a virtual joystick? On a touchscreen? Rather than gestures?
Fail. No purchase.

iPad 2 and while the Video run at +/- 29 FPS the Game does run with 60 FPS.

The original SC was famous for its silky smooth movement and framerate.
There is not a single Lag on the iPad 2 and it seem to run with 60+ FPS even when I`m smashing the Hit Button or try one of those crazy Combos.

The Game is a Perfect Port so far and Namco did a great Job.

Go get Infinity Blade or something.

Street Fighter, King of Fighter, Blades of Fury and Bruce Lee prove virtual buttons can work well without dumbing down the games to swipe-fiesta.

Agree with that, i didnt expect this game to have gestures at all. Virtual buttons can work really well

What makes you think that a game from the same publishers and partly the same dev team would be any different in terms of control schemes and whatever else you might be dissatisfied with in SC?

The Xbox Live Arcade version of the game may be cheaper, but if i remember correctly, that was only a 1:1 port of the game running in some emulator, lacking widescreen support.
That was a lousy treatment for this classic masterpiece.

This release is a true port and i'd expect they put a lot more work into this than the XBLA release, so i won't feel bad for paying more for this release than for the XBLA one.

Soul Calibur has always been one of the very short list of h2h fighting games I enjoyed. I could never really get over the monotony of most fighters, but for some reason I really liked this one. I havent scoped out the price of this yet, but I may go for it. Depending on how much it actually is, so we shall see.
