Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny (PSP) review


Kratos takes to the Stage Of History as The Apprentice gets fired...

The definitive weapon-based fighter comes to PSP and manages not to lose anything in the translation. New modes and characters keep things interesting while fights themselves are as hectic and rock-solid as ever. A portable delight.

SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny


Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny disposes of Star Wars, unleashes an angry God and brings it's weapon-based combat to the Playstation Portable. Having had great success with Tekken Dark Resurrection, Namco Bandai are hoping the portable Soulcalibur will...

Kratos ; Stunning visuals ; Great fighting mechanics ; 28 unique characters ; A great companion to Soulcalibur IV

No arcade mode ; No online play ; Limited character creation

Ultimately, Broken Destiny is the young son of Soulcalibur 4. If you've played part four to death and you're looking for something new, then this might not be a great choice. On the other hand, if you desire some basic Soulcalibur action on the move...

Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny


Fighting games are evolving, right before our very eyes. No longer are they simple grudge matches between superpowered titans or scantily clad women, they are pseudo-RPGs, overflowing with character customization options, challenges to complete, and...

Gorgeous and detailed character models ; Multiple game modes ; Interesting yet stripped-down character customization ; Soaring orchestral score ; Kratos

Some moves can be hard to master for newbies to the series ; Gauntlet mode is more like a veiled, long tutorial

For every type of fighter, even the newbies, Broken Destiny provides several different gametypes to get you accustomed to the often-difficult gameplay or jump right into a challenge. The first stop all players should make is the Gauntlet, a tutorial...

Soul To Go


One of the highest rated fighting game franchises of all time finally makes its way to the PSP. Come on inside to find out if that's a good thing.

Simply put one of the best looking games on the system.

Soul Calibur Broken Destiny


Apparently Namco Bandai had the idea to bring Soul  Calibur to the  PSP as a title for novices. Not a great plan really, as essentially most of the PSP's core audience are likely as hardcore as the console audience. So Broken Destiny really ends up...

Looks great ; New character Kratos is fun

No online multiplayer ; Story mode is essentially learn how to block and parry mode ; Single player modes lack depth

Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny would have been a good title. Two major missteps mar an otherwise descent title. The fact is, fighting games are essentially party games.  They aren’t anywhere near as fun when you’re stuck playing them solo, and they're...

SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny


The fighting genre has not had a very storied exsistence on the PlayStation Portable. Outside of 2006's Tekken: Dark Resurrection and the recently released Dissidia: Final Fantasy , naming a quality fighting game for the PSP is quite a challenge. When...

Fantastic Visuals ; God of War's Kratos actually plays really well ; Quick Match does offer a lot of variety in opposition ; Controls transition well onto the portable system

No proper Arcade Mode ; The Gauntlet Mode is boring and repetitive ; Limited single-player appeal ; Online Multiplayer would have been great

For those interested in picking up SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny, you have to look at it from a number of different angles. If you are a long time fan of the series but do not have people to play with, you will quickly get bored with the lackluster...

Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny


The PSP isn't known for having a vast library of great fighting titles. It has a couple Street Fighter entries, a Power Stone, and a solid Tekken entry. While Tekken was solid 3D fighter for the PSP, the system hasn't see many since then. Thankfully,...

Soul Calibur is all about a deep and engaging fighting experience. With deep move-sets and a flowing combo system, Broken Destiny is a fighting fans dream. In terms of the fighting system, everything from the console version has made it to the portable...

The single-player content is severely lacking. There's a Gauntlet mode, which tells a lackluster story after you complete short and meaningless challenges. Aside from Gauntlet, you also have access to an Arcade and Training mode. Arcade mode is fun,...

Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny is a solid portable fighter. Even though the lack of a deep single-player mode is disappointing, the fighting system is still very solid and refined. The main problem with the game comes from the lack of any real depth. No...

Soul Calibur Broken Destiny review for the PSP


Superb gameplay; Really short load times...; No more asinine stats nonsense

If you've got the memory for an install; No story mode; Gauntlet mode is soooo laaaammee

Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny Review (PSP)


The epic tale continues on the PSP, the warriors of the world unite once again with Kratos and Dampierre joining this roster. How will the fighting experience stack up on the PSP? We'll find out.

My playthrough of Broken Destiny was short in a sense; those hoping for story will not find much enjoyment in the latest title, however competitive fans will most likely find lots in the ad-hoc versus play, which brings renewed gameplay via tournament...

SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny Review


Up until now, Tekken has been the only massive 3D fighter to arrive on the PSP. Years ago when Tekken: Dark Resurrection arrived on the PSP, I praised it for being a superb game that brought the very same console experience into the portable world,...

In all honesty, if you're looking for a fighter and don't have a copy of Tekken: Dark Resurrection for PSP, I'd just go and buy that instead of Broken Destiny, especially since Tekken can be had for cheap. SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny isn't a bad game,...
