App Giveaway: SOULCALIBUR for iPhone and iPad


Wow. It's been more than 10 years since I last played it on Dreamcast or something.

Count me in. I love fighting games like Street Fighter, Tekken, Dead or Alive, etc. I'd love a copy of Soulcalibur for my iPhone

WOW. I used to waste SOOOOO many hours playing this game with my friend back in the day on Dreamcast. We got so crazy good at SC we used to do some 8 vs. 8 team battles with blindfolds on playing just by using sound and knowing each other's tendencies! Sign me up, I would love to win this and rekindle some old memories on my 4S!

I used to play this all the time at the laser tag place. I would love to have this on my 4S :)

What, what, what!?!?!?!? This game was off the chain back in the day! hook me up imore!!!

Transcending history and the world; a tale of swords and souls eternally retold! Now on iPad, yayuh!!!

Okay, you got me. I rarely comment here but I'd like to have this game again and don't want to pay $11.99 or more if I can help it.

This was the game I played at my first job instead of working! Would love to do the same with my current job!

What an awesome game! It's a shame about the price... but I'm hoping to luck out for once! Thanks AppAdvice peeps :)

*iMore... sorry Leanna, I may have to admit that I sometimes check out those other websites (they are never as great though) :P

Sweeeet! I can't wait to play the game I loved so many years ago & look forward to improving my poor attempts of poor lip syncing to my even poorer impression of an Asian accent "Let's fight" :-)

Excited about this since the recent console versions of the franchise have been really disappointing.

I've first played this game on my friend's dreamcast and would love to play this game on my iPad2 soon. Thanks for the opportunity.

Speed of the Sword. Light from the Blade. Bring You My Word. By Me, You Are Slayed! This game looks awesome! I want to win! :)

Wow, I was surprise with the price I didn't expect more than $6 for this game. It reminds me good old times with my R. I. P. dreamcast. :-)

I remember playing this until the early morning hours on Dreamcast. I think $11 is steep considering the lack of Mission Battle Mode.

I was a HUGE fan of this game back in the arcade "hay days". Glad to see it's been made available on modern gaming platforms. Agree with other posters in that it seems an expensive price compaired to most other games on iOS.

I loved this game on the original Xbox and on my PS3 a few years ago when you could choose Darth Vader as a character! I would love to have this on my iPad!!!!

I loved playing this game on college and on my original XBox. It would be awesome on my iPad.

I got a Dreamcast and a copy of SoulCalibur on the Dreamcast launch day, 9/9/99. It was a gift from my boss (a very cool boss!) SoulCalibur was an awesome game back then, and it looks to be awesome once again!

It would really amaze me if touch controls work for this game. Either way a blast of the past is always good.

Well, I hope I win, but I bet I won't. Would love to play Soul Caliber again, especially since I no longer have my Playstation.

I remember buying the Dreamcast on LAUNCH day on September 9th. I brought the system strictly because of this game. Mitsurugi is my favorite character!

Omg omg omg! I love soulcalibur! Please let this fan win this! Would be great to win something for once and especially it being this. Thanks!

Just got my ipad 2 yesterday. And when i found this website, i was even more excited about it! Thank you imore!!!!

Sweet! I haven't played this game in years! I had it for one of the Sega consoles (Saturn, I think).

I'd love to win this, I'm waiting on my 4S which I should receive on Saturday by mail. It's my first Apple product, this would be an awesome way of starting off! :)

I used to play this extensively on the Dreamcast way back in the day. I would love to have it for iOS!

I remember spending a lot of hours mastering Mitsurugi's counter-attack with his sword on his sheath... oh, memories...

What a giveaway! Thanks to iMore and the good folks who did SoulCalibur for what looks to be a great game!

Love this game. Thank you iMore for letting us know it's now available for the iPad and iPhone.

I miss this game, and I Santa just delivered an iPAD 2 for Christmas, this game will make it shine. never fails to give their readers what they want! Keep up the good job. Would love to test this out on my new 4S!

I've never played the original, but I have played (and love) Soulcalibur II for GameCube (with Link)! I'd love to try the original! Thanks!

Played it on Dreamcast and then PS2. It is still my favorite fighting game. Can't wait to try it on my iPad.

I would love to win a copy of this game!! It would take me waaaay back to the days I owned a Dreamcast... when I was 10 years old!

I would love a copy. I googled app giveaway and end up finding you. Wish I heard about you all sooner.

I played Soulcalibur IV on a console and it's loads of fun. It might take a while getting used to touchscreen controls but it's worth a try.
