Summary: Great game. Short story, but the characters and background look amazing. The players moves are very variable, and fairly difficult to execute, but overall a very fun and challenging game in the fighting genre.
Summary: Overall, this game is a great pickup for $30.00. The game has great graphics and the fighting on the game is pretty great as well. The online mode can be a bit frustrating at times, but it's not insane. If you have the money laying around and you're looking for a fighting game, I would recommend you choose Soul Calibur V.
Pros: Little to no lag during online play, unlike Soul Calibur 4 Still wide array of creatures Easy use of Edge Attacks compared to previous Soul Calibur versions Gameplay faster, but kept with traditional Soul Calibur
Cons: Some major changes in movesets than previous Soul Calibur versions Little to no story mode (only 1 character with many gaps in character storylines) Creation mode less items available than previous Soul Calibur versions (must purchase)
Awesome game, amazing new features, really enjoyed it!

Summary: i did love SoulCalibur 3, SoulCalibur 4 changes were kinda weird and both were a bit slow phased for my taste, but this one feels fantastic! the graphics are better than SC4, haven't play story mode but it cant be worse than SC4's story, anyway i don't feel its of great importance in a fighting game, i love the improvements made to combat, the character selection could use more space and the card style used in the custom selection is kind of annoying because is not that...
Summary: In this installment of soul caliber, the CPU will just bombard you with never-ending chain of attacks, just spamming them trying to perform every move on the list. Its hard to master it too with the extremely difficult street fighter format.
Summary: Soul Calibur 5 makes some important changes to Namco's signature weapon-based fighter, but is mostly more of the same...with a few things missing. The storyline takes place 17 years in the future from the last game--which means many of the series' mainstay characters have been replaced with their younger proteges. Sophitia is succeeded by her children, Patrokolos and Pyrra (and Elysium, respectively)...while Taki's stand-in is her student Natsu, ect.
Summary: Soul Calibur is always been known as one of them games u have 2 know wut ur doing to win not just press buttons and win ( like Tekken for Example) but ya number 5 charcters like Maxi got nerfed (downgrade) rlly bad i mean dang and dats mi best charatcer and hes da headache part if ur a real good fighter like me u love to counter well da counter is basically gone u have 2 have a certain amount of energy 2 perforom counters now i mean dang..
Summary: This is an awesome fighting game. I love the new characters in this game how they fit well into the gameplay with there unique fighting skills; for example, if you play as Xiba it is not the same as playing as Kilik. Z.E.W.I and Viola you must learn how to use their additional weapons to fight at their full potential. The graphics are beautiful better than SCIV and when the armor breaks it has a better affect.
