SC4 had the hugely incongruous Star Wars crossover and not a lot to do in single player. The random opponents in the Tower of Lost Souls mode were a highlight. SC5, I kind of forgot all about, might pick it up cheap soon.

msbhvn wrote:I haven't forgotten the DC Soul Calibur (or its predecessor Soul Blade/Edge on PS1), I was just pointing out that SC2 was the pinnacle of the series, with huge amounts of single player goodness. I used an adapter with my PS1 controller for the Gamecube version because of the tiny d-pad on the GC controller.

It's a good job they included SF3 Third Strike on the Xbox version, or I'd never have bothered with it at all. The SF2 anime wasn't half bad, either.
