Summary: Story mode is terrible on this one, don't like the new characters that replace quiet a few of the original characters, if they were just characters added alongside the originals then it wouldn't be so bad.
Summary: In all seriousness, I bought this game just to see Aeon (aka, Lizardman) in action. I am entirely unfamiliar with the Soul Caliber series and I don't play that many fighting games. That being said, I've loved SC5 so far. The plot is... why is there a plot? No really though - why do these games bother with a plot? The gameplay is so arcadey and the cutscenes are jarring and unnecessary.They can be skipped, but still a bother.
Summary: I have yet to play all of the Soul Calibur games, but being a fan of Soul Calibur IV, I was pretty exited to get this game. To be fair, I didn't buy it at release and I knew what to expect due to the various reviews and what people said about it. There were many mixed feelings about this game, but overall this is a very good game without some flaws. The first thing you will notice playing this game are the amazing graphics.
