Unique and often outlandish fighting styles for each character. Loads of crazy stances and less than predictable moves. Battles that can end in 10 seconds. Getting comboed to death by an opponent with a sliver of health left. An inability for characters to stop yelling everything they say. Painfully corny dialogue. And apparently there's supposed to be a good story in this. In other words, one of the most satisfying fighting game series ever.
So yeah, Soul Calibur is awesome, but it can be hard to get good with characters since they have so many options and most of them play very differently. Though it does lead to some intense matches since you don't always know what to expect from the opponent. And I doubt a character like Voldo exists in any other game.
