Not a bad purchase if you don't mind it being somewhat outdated

Summary: Soulcalibur IV is, arguably, overall superior to its direct sequel, Soulcalibur V--which seems to suffer a bit in the character roster and single-player-modes areas, even if it's a little smoother and has an arguably more sensible guest character lineup. For those who are uninitiated, Soulcalibur as a series is a 3D fighting game (in the vein of Tekken, which is made by the same company). But instead of focusing on martial arts styles, the Soul series is weapons-based.
Summary: This arrived quickly. I always liked this game. I think it might be the Canadian version because it has a Pegi 16 rating instaead of a "T" for teen rating but it still plays on my PS3. The only downer is it wont load the DLC characters like Yoda.
Summary: As stated above I have enjoyed the game. The character creator does seem a bit hinged and you can not create what ever you pleas when you first begin. I liked Soul Caliber II on the Gamecube and that may be why I like the gameplay and this game. Also there is nothing like Weapon Master mode in this game. There is arcade and arcade with the story of the character.
Summary: Reviewing something so similar to the preceding three games -- and after releases like Super Street Fighter IV -- becomes monotonous. Especially coming from a franchise once treasured in the fighting game genre. Pros? The inclusion of Star Wars exclusives is an excellent concept; the introduction of online mode; stunning graphics; once again, Soulcalibur IV caters to veterans and casuals with its variety of strikingly unique fighting styles. Cons?
Summary: I'm a big fan of fighting games, this one has some beautiful graphics and smooth fighting styles. I'm a fan of being able to create your own fighters although some of the armor sets can create an overpowered character causing most of the creations to be wearing some of the same stuff just for the boosts. Also you can't go wrong with Darth Vader, Yoda is available as a DLC but I wouldn't recommend getting him... one force user should be enough for you.
Summary: so buying this wasn't a really hard decision. Plus, um Darth Vader, anyone? How can anyone pass that one up?!! Holds true to the other previous titles in the franchise, no really new features, but hey... I'm not complaining.
