Summary: The graphics and the character designs are awesome in this game, best game of the SC series for those two things. However the game play is a bit meh, normal is to easy and then hard is way overly hard, their is no middle ground when it comes to fighting an mpc. You either have to fight an overly easy mpc or though your hands up in the air as you die trying to fight a mpc for the twenty fifth time.
Summary: As said in the title, this release of Soul Calibur is one of my least favorites of the series. I don't like the new system for getting items, nor do I like the fact that they got rid of a lot of old time favorite characters. Sophitia's children really aren't that great of follow ups to their predecessors and some of the other new characters are just... meh. I do like the extent of things you can do in character creation, but again, getting items is kind of a hassle.
Summary: Like other people say, the single player options are lacking - they didn't have enough time to make the story mode any good. This game is better suited to multiplayer and online matches. Visually, this game is flashier with brighter weapon trails and bursting auras. I somehow find this game visually less charming than its predecessor. I don't know if it's the lighting or the animations or the overall tone or what.
Summary: I bought this on a black friday sale on amazon. I am not a big fan of fighting games so that was why I bought it, "only if it was on sale." It is fun but I cant play it for long just because of my personal opinion on the game style. I have a bunch of friends who love the game tho!
Great if you love creating characters! Otherwise....meh.

Summary: I mainly got this game for the character creation feature. That aside, I feel it's lacking a lot of things that made the Soul series so good. Longtime characters are missing and the story mode (while being better than IV) is unfortunately shorter than what it was supposed to be. (Production rush...) Other than that, the battle system feels faster and combos feel a little easier to pull off.
Summary: Its OK. They focused too much on Customization though. The gameplay is not as smooth as the older Soul Calibur's I would not recommend this to anyone that just want to fight the Story mode is all over the place. Nothing seems real. All in all do not get this for full price. This is worth about 9.99 only.
Summary: I swear the detail on many reused items from SC4 were scaled poorly. Some of them look lower res in the new game, giving it a more dated look. I won't get into the piss poor story mode or the decided lack of weapons collection that made the first 3 iterations a blast.
Summary: i guess you could say soulcalibur v was an alright game not great but still fun. i mean i was not impressed the story of this game is terrable it was not the best it was not the worst it was a little bit of a disappointment.
Summary: PROS: Graphics, Game play, Music, Sound, Online Multiplayer, Character Creation CONS: Weak Campaign Mode, Cut scenes look like concept art with voice overs, No Ending for Individual Characters.
