Soul Calibur is simply a joy to watch, but thankfully, it's even more fun to play. The moves are easy to pull off (that scores big with me every time) and look great while they are being performed. And they all flow into each other without much any interruption in the animation (my personal thanks to the motion capture people and programmers).
The home version of House Of The Dead 2 is a pixel-perfect console port of Sega's popular arcade gore-fest franchise and as far as light-gun shooters go today, it's as straight forward as it gets. You won't find heated 2-player competition like in Point Blank, no ducking feature like in Time Crisis, or any attribute build-ups like in Elemental Gearbots.

I'll say one thing for House Of The Dead 2, it's easy to get into. Who needs a training mode in a game where you just point and shoot? I will argue for the addictiveness of the game because I think it is more so than Chi did.
Through wildly imaginative characterizations that has more personality than Don King hyping his latest promotion, Rumble makes it easy to forget all the technology in favor of a vivid boxing microcosm. Rumble is a world that comes complete with heated ring rivalries, larger than life egos, and trash-talking bravado worthy of Mike Tyson after one of his 'patented' first round knockout (remember those?).

I can't disagree with any parts of Chi's review. As arcade boxing games go, I really thought only Nintendo could effectively create unique and oddball boxers in a great playing boxing game, but in this case, Midway has done a superb job in matching Nintendo's best efforts.
It can if Midway effectively recreates the arcade experience while adding immersive home console peculiarities. And, apparently with Legends, they have. The original premise of having four human controlled adventurers of different character classes cooperatively questing (a refreshingly rare feature today) through maze-like stages hasn't changed, so the gameplay is still very arcade-like.
