Storyline

After Siegfried finally frees himself from the grasp of Nightmare, he seals the power of Soul Edge by piercing its eye with Soul Calibur and journeys to find a way to keep the cursed blade out of the hands of those that would abuse it. However, a mysterious new figure known as Zasalamel has recently become interested in the swords for his own purposes. After breathing new life into Nightmare, Zasalamel works to return power to Soul Edge in order to break the seal. Meanwhile, other warriors from the past begin their search anew. Their common goal is Soul Edge; a weapon some see as a prize, others see as salvation, and those that know its true identity as a blade of pure evil. Written by Anonymous

The best in the series so far.
12 June 2006 | by korisxSee all my reviews

The Story line for this game is very jerky where it appears the game writers have tried to find ways to justify how a character appears in certain areas of the world map in Tales of the Soul. That being said, this is the only gripe I have about the game.

The beginning FMV is spectacular with breath taking sceneries and interesting new devices such as the ability to create and design your own character and their own Martial Arts discipline. There's even a second story mode which makes up for the awkward Story design of Tale of the Souls.

Parts of the FMVs during Tale of the Souls is also interactive where you can decide the fate of your Character to a certain degree which is an interesting feature.

With the many combinations of Characters you can create, the varied paths you can explore in Tales of the Souls and the Chronicle of Swords story mode, this game will keep any Beatem up/RPG fans amused for a while!
