  • 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. It plays too much like the past games we remember…for better or worse. On a basic level, the game works as well as any Soul Calibur, and has a few improvements to help balance out the combat.

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

  • Conclusion: It's quite bare boned but you can easily spend hours with just playing the same mode over and over again. Summary: +Great combat system +Gorgeous graphics +Fantastic online -The story mode is cheesy -Some of the new characters are annoying -getting your ass kicked by Nightmare Overall I think this is another great title for the Soulcalibur series despite its dull offline modes.

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. A solid, workmanlike effort that is likely to get fans of the series excited enough to purchase, but won’t do anything to tempt new buyers really.

Game Over Online
15 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Part of it is, of course, that they overhauled the roster and ditched my two main characters. There's a seventeen-year timeskip between Soulcalibur IV and this game, sort of like the generation gap between the second and third Tekken games, and they took the opportunity to ditch Xianghua and Seung Mina. Thanks, guys. Xianghua's been replaced by her daughter, a half-dressed spastic named Leixia, but she isn't the real thing and you can't convince me otherwise.

  • Excerpt: SoulCalibur has always been a flashy franchise — in more ways than one. When the original came out on the Sega Dreamcast, I was completely awestruck, and wasted hundreds of hours clanging swords and flinging people out of the ring.
