Link all the way. He's the only one of the three that actually fits into the premise of a weapons-based melee fighting game, even if his bows are usable as well as his sword.

Top 3 reasons to buy SoulCalibur 2:

3. The possibility of Link actually SPEAKING everytime he wins a match!

2. The Return of Sophitia!

1. THE RETURN OF SEUNG MINA!

Hey, I know where my priorities lie!

If you have HDTV and Dolby 5.1, you may want to get the Xbox version because it supports 720p. Spawn or Link are both good fits. Heihachi is not.

Nah, from what I've seen of the game from the GameCube Demo Disc (Kaybee had it in its bargain bin for 10 bucks, heh) Link's victory stance is limited to the usual "Hiyaa" line or whatever it is that he says in Smash Bros.

Spawn > Link

Yeah, the Spawn comic basically sucks, but the character is much more appropriate for the game, looks cooler, and I'm willing to bet has more entertainment value as a playable character. Link sticks out like a sore thumb.

Heihachi? Eh. An ok addition I guess, but it's not anything that seems remarkable, after all, he's a Namco character.

As far as Tekken refugees go, I was hoping for Roger the boxing kangaroo, but I was denied. Maybe in Soul Calibur 3.

Unfortunately I have heard that there is no Siegfried, which upsets me to no end. Now, I know some of you will say "Nightmare is just the same"...and you will be wrong. Siegfried's double downward vertical slash into an upward vertical slash is one of the best combos from Soul Calibur...Nightmare unfortunately does not have that. There are also some others that he does not have.

I'm still buying the game though Kilik is going to have to become my new character.

EDIT: I just found out that Siegfried's costume is hidden...still...it just won't be the same!

I like Link more then Spawn, but I do agree he is more likey to fit in soul claibur then Link. I don't think the controls pad for the Cube is a a good one to use for Soul Calibur. In truth PS2 is but I feel that PS2 owner are getting rip off. So I guest I am going to go with Xbox.

At my local Gamestop, the guy was saying it was 3-1 for gamecube on presales.
