Just... disappointing

B. Kirk, Amazon
1 December 2013
  • Summary: Do disappointed in the complete lack of single player; the main reason I bought this. Past SC games had incredibly varied and interesting single player modes, and even if they weren't perfect, at least Namco tried. Want to trade this back in immediately... this is only for online. Graphics are great, but par for SC, and although there are new characters, you lose others so, this release was almost pointless.

You'll spend enough time on it.

That dude from that one thing!, Amazon

  • Summary: It's a fun game and all. You get to customize almost all characters and even your own ones to a great extent. Hair styles, eyebrow styles, makeup, colors, heights, weights, sizes, styles.. change them all; on the other hand, you can't change proportions on the designers' characters. But there are many different styled costumes and even colors/patterns to further customize all applicable characters with.

I felt ripped off

M. Mitchell "kaliz77", Amazon

  • Summary: The Graphices are better than 4 the colors are deeper and the game looks great but it feels like they rushed it. The game is not balanced at all Natsu is the fastest charters on the game and has a better reach than Mitsurugi and Xiba has one of the Longest reaches on the game and is faster then most of the whole cast its crazy so if you play online get ready to fight the same charters and get attacked by the same moves over and over again.

Better multiplayer for no story.

LSP, Amazon
26 February 2013
  • Summary: Huge disappointment on my end, They used their budget to enhance the multiplayer and screwed over the story. If you are not a fan of fighting games you are gonna have a hard time playing this game...I bought this because all my friends played it, And allot of the prosthetics and clothing DLC should have already been added to the game but you still have to buy it on top of just unlocking it through lving up. 3 was the best just saying.

Soul Calibur V.... Missed Opportunity.

B. White "whtig6", Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: I hated this Soul Calibur! I just couldn't get into the new characters. The cutscenes are stills also. It was just bad. Hopefully the next one will redeem the series.

All flash no cash

N. Pawar "thestoneman", Amazon
21 April 2012
  • Summary: "Hey it's another soul calibur what could go wrong!?!" Plenty...and it did go wrong. I'm only commenting on the single player portion of the game because I don't play online (as if the online component could be any better in this particular game...). The single person component is very short, incredibly boring, and a lot of the characters feel pretty much the same.

Soul Calibur V fails to bring any of the elements that make the franchise great

D. Na, Amazon
21 April 2012
  • Summary: I'm a huge fan of the Soul Calibur franchise. I haven't always had a console to play them, but when I heard the fifth one was coming out (and I had an Xbox to play it on!) I was super excited. However, this game lacks a lot of the elements I've come to expect and love of this franchise. 1. Story Mode: As a fighting game, I don't expect some sort of masterful story here (although the newest Mortal Kombat certainly has raised the bar for fighting story lines).

Soul Calibur V: NOT WORTH IT

S. Palumbo "sarah04", Amazon
3 April 2012
  • Summary: Soul Calibur V: NOT WORTH IT Let me start off by saying this: If all you care about is online vs. play then this game is absolutely amazing and gets a 5 STAR OMG BUY THIS NOW RATING. If you like the rest of the 99% of people who actually want some product for their money then read the rest of the review. Soul Calibur V is probably the weakest title in the series. I mean this game has nothing to make you want to pop it back in and play it again once you beat story mode.

So much but so little....

Michael Cusack, Amazon
26 March 2012
  • Summary: This game had the ability to be the best fighter in our current generation and maybe of all time but Project Soul failed. The game does not falter in terms of gameplay as it is now more technical than in SC4 but the characters are no longer balanced as they were in SC4. The story is better but still fails short of SC2's but it is a nice change of pace form SC 3's and 4's arcade endings.

a personal opinion

  • Summary: As a long time fan i was pretty excited for SC5 so i got it in the third day. first of all the game is really good, and for thoughs who played previous versions your thoughts will vary. so far this is what i came up with. Pros, the game is vary responsive graphis are awsome the charater creation gives you that feeling being diffrent the cutsense they do have are well made some of the new charaters are nicely done.
