Summary: i love soul caliber but i gotta admit i hate how they have soooooo many new characters but does not have their own stories, where'd they came from? Where in the hell is Talim?! I wished they kept the old characters as well as add in the new ones. What's wrong with keeping both?! LOL anyways I didn't like the story challenges either, way too easy. But nonetheless i liked how they added the critical edge, the design.
If you're looking for an awesome Soul Calibur game, pick up the fourth one.

Summary: Pros: Graphics are better, stuff is more flashy, character creation is much better, stages are a bit more interesting than the last game, and better online play. Cons: The new characters aren't as interesting as the old ones that they replaced, single player has been reduced to: arcade, harder arcade, story, training, and quick battle, the story mode isn't as long or as fun as the previous games were, it also does a pretty bad job with characterization, overall, the...
Summary: Read a lot of great reviews of this game. Was especially intersted in the character maker. Which is easy to use. But found the game itself to be flawed. Moves are not very fluid. You often feel as though you are not really controlling the character or influencing what he or she does. When you compare it to the Tekken series of beat em ups, made by the same company, that is so so much better and you can pick that up second hand cheap too.
Summary: i really love the soul calibur games, ever since the second one for the gamecube where you could play as Link from the Zelda franchise. Although with this one i felt as if it was lacking in almost every aspect compared to the fourth one, alot of old favorite playable characters are gone, the story mode is a little short and boring and there is no story mode either. i still think this is a good game, just a step backwords in the franchise.
Summary: After an early player of Soul Blade on the PS2, I saw that Soul Caliber was available for the PS3 and went straight for it. These games aren't meant for long story lines, but the fighting and backgrounds are excellent.
Summary: The game is better than the IV but still have some defects. Example: the story is quite boring, using just one or two characters for the principal story it's a pity. Could be much better if there is a principal story and the end, changes using different characters. Other thing could be the introduction of the "Blood effect" on the game. Also reintroduce the special abilities and the fisical changes thanks for the equip could make the game much interesting.
Summary: After a great SCIV This Fifth volume is short, not fun , hard to control ( you can't invite friends home and make some combats because this game require advanced knowledge to be played, how sad..).
