    Well thank God for bank holiday lieu days. My copy of SCII for the cube arrived today, and very tasty it is too. Lots to unlock, and the weapons do make a tangibly large difference in the way the game plays.

    Gets the thumbs up from me, but I'm not going to write any more, as I'm off to continue playing.

    Being an avid fan of the PS1/Dreamcast version I would advise a rental before buying.

    This is especially true for the Gamecube version, the Gamecube controller is just not cut out for fighting games. The game is not significantly different from the versions above and the story mode is not that exciting.

    It is also flawed by having a control system which allows you to continually pull off silly moves. You shouldn't use it, but sometimes it is a little tempting :p

    The graphics are lovely, however I was really disappointed by the game in single player, my flatmate is on holiday so I haven't had chance to play multi properly yet.

    Perhaps if you have an alternative controller for the cube it would be a lot better.

    You can get adaptors that let you use PS2 controllers with a Gamecube.

    The GC version of SC2 is stunning but to be honest the DC version of the original is still the best:

    Here is SC1 and SC2 PIP on the new tv :D

    I have all 3 versions (as well as the DC original) along with Hori Arcade Sticks for a 3 consoles (and a Sega Arcade Stick for the DC).

    When I don't use the sticks I find that the Gamecube controller is by far the best. I dislike the s-contoller buttons for multiple button presses (throws) and the analogue stick is too loose.

    The Dual Shock 2 is better with good buttons but, again, the analogue stick is too loose.

    I would just like to retract my previous comments!

    I have started using the digital pad and swapping the keys to the B configuration. Since doing that I have really started to enjoy the game. The Weapon master is a lot larger than before and is quite interesting with the different challenges.
