Soulcalibur V

GamesRadar
27 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Soulcalibur V isn’t a reboot in name, but as we spent hours diving into its intricate system, it sure feels like one. If Soulcalibur III was a largely-forgotten misstep, and Soulcalibur IV was a good sequel for its time, Soulcalibur V marks a solid improvement.
  • Pros: New tweaks to gameplay, Visual splendor, Blend of fresh faces and familiar fighters
  • Cons: Cheesy story mode not for the lactose intolerant, Legendary Souls mode will drive non-hardcore players crazy, Did we mention the voice acting for story mode?

Soul Calibur V

Square-Go
4 May 2012
  • Excerpt: In the Street Fighter vs Mortal Kombat debate I just shrug, except on odd occasions I don’t bother too much with fighters. But Soul Calibur does hold a place in my heart; its Mario Kart approach allows newcomers to go toe-to-toe with veterans and still have a reasonable chance of a victory.

Soul Calibur V Review

VideoGamer.com
18 April 2012
  • Excerpt: For a game that boasts to be a tale of soul and swords eternally retold, Soul Calibur IV was a little too soulless. The fifth entry enters the ring embroiled in an identity crisis, then, with SoulCalibur V forced to reinvent a series quickly losing its relevance despite a fighting genre in the...

Welcome Back to the Stage of History

GameCritics.com
17 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Soul Calibur was the reason I bought a Dreamcast and it was my favorite fighting game for a long time, solely because Sophitia reminded me of Sailor Venus from the Sailor Moon anime—Hey, I was 15 and obsessed over anything that even had a mild association to that show!
  • Pros: Getting curbstomped until I'm down to a sliver of health. My opponent's throw places him at the edge of the ring. I kick. Ring out!
  • Cons: The AI blatantly cheating in the most infuriating ways possible.

  • Excerpt: I love this fighting game renaissance we are going through. We're finally realizing that fighting games were actually good back in the day, so we are basing them off the glory days of yesterday. Therein lies Soul Calibur's biggest problem.

  • Conclusion: No matter how well done some elements of the game are, there’s just too much missing here to justify a higher score.

SoulCalibur V Review

PlayDevil
24 February 2012
  • Summary: Soul Calibur has always been one of my favoured fighting series. This one does, predictably, little to freshen things up, but it’s been just long enough since 4 came out for me to be not too bothered.

  • Excerpt: I've invested a great deal of my life in Chun-Li and the gang in Street Fighter IV . I've had some memorable experiences, meeting new faces and connecting with old ones that I haven't seen in years. Along the way, I've even reveled in some rather witty catchphrases, such as "You mad, bro?
