Summary: disappointing update. story mode not as cool as previous versions, and my favorite character Seung Mina is missing. It would be nice if SoulCalibur added more breakable environments like Dead or Alive. And there's still the messed up stun-hits that some characters get that prevent the opponent from responding. the battle system is borked. avoid. my first disc didn't work, so of course i was pissed when the 2nd one worked and showed such a schlocky piece of programming.
Summary: Hard to beleive we've hit the number Five when it comes to the Soul Calibur series...though technically it is the 6th game in the series. Funny how it clearly shows that not everything will age gracefully...Soul Calibur 5 is easily one of the most dreadfully disappointing releases in years. I have fond, wonderful memories of firing up Soul Blade (or Soul Edge) on my Playstation back in 1996.
Summary: Boo Terrible game compared to Soulcalibur IV! What we're they thinking we'll just put out anything and it will sell?! Well they lost a true fan of the game when they released this edition. DO NOT PURCHASE!
Summary: This is by far the worst game in the Soul Calibur franchise. The graphics are terrible and it is matched by the equally horrible story mode which seems like it was thrown together at last minute, since it consists of storyboard drawings between the fights. Furthermore, the fighting in the game doesn't seem improved at all, its as if they didn't even touch up or change the game engine from the previous game. All in all, this game was just terrible and a waist of my money.
Summary: I'm sorry to say it because I am a huge fan of the Soul Calibur series, but this is just the worst edition in the series. Period. Single player modes are just inexcusable; there is no content and it will bore you after 30 minutes of play. It feels more "cartoonish" than previous versions as well and seems to be a step backwards from IV (which was freaking awesome).
