12. SoulCalibur II (2003)
Developer: Project Soul
Soul Blade and SoulCalibur were great fighting games on their own merit, but SoulCalibur II really raised the bar in fighters. It included The Legend of Zelda's Link for GameCube owners, comic book anti-hero Spawn for Xbox and Tekken's Heihachi for PlayStation 2. Its varied roster, slick fighting styles, and robust story mode are only a few of the reasons why it belongs in the GameCube Hall of Fame.
