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?
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.
Summary: overall a great game, and so far have enjoyed kinda getting back into the soul calibur series, been a lot of fun, playing against my cousins / brother game arrived slightly earlier than expected, so win there.
Summary: The difference in characters allows for any person to find a fighting style they like, and the character creation allows has a large amount of flexibility to make cool, whacky, or creepy characters if you have the imagination.
Summary: Played this game a bit although I bought this for my brother's birthday. Is nicely done, though I don't do fighting games too well due to the key combos. But it had a somewhat hooking storyline and the characters were made well.
Summary: I absolutely love this game and series. It has excellent character and environmental graphics. You can customize characters on a greater level and choose from multiple styles. The only downfall the game has would be the lack of a story mode, which is surprising since the rest of the series had such...
Summary: Story is boring, only using basically 2 characters that are almost clones of each other. Storyboards are lazy and don't have any transitions. Character creation and multiplayer make up for it and are SPOT on.
Summary: First and foremost, if you adored the story modes in the previous games above all else, it's likely you will hate this game with the heat of a thousand suns. But if you're like me, who came back over and over for the excellent replay value, than I have hope you will like it.
