Summary: I hear that the first Soul Calibur game you play is the one you'll favor the most, and... So far that's true. Soul Calibur 3 left expectations in my heart that 4 just couldn't compete with- not to say that it's not a good game in it's own right. The combat is comparable to that of three, with less "oomph" placed on the story. 4 does not contain the ever-dreaded memory corruption as 3 does, but I feel that what 4 made up for- it gave up in personality.
Summary: Review is based on game type rather than the product itself. I thought this game would be more like soul calibur three where you got to campain, but it was purely fighting which I dont have an interest in.
Not a bad purchase if you don't mind it being somewhat outdated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. 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 Reviewing something so similar to the preceding three games -- and after releases...
