Soul Calibur V

To start; I have never really been a fan of the Soul Calibur series so I can't compare this to the older games. But I like it, it is fun and fast, and the character creation allows you to personalize your fighter.Report this review
Soul Calibur V is a great addition to the series in many ways, however, the single player in this game is a weak offering. With the story mode taking a mere hour or two. If you are after a solid singleplayer experience, this is will sadly not impress you. The online is where the game really shines, it is great to work on perfecting a character and unleashing abilities on your opposition and feeling satisfied. Fights are on the whole smooth and it feels great to play online as there are minimal stability issues, in my own experience at least. Graphically the game is extremely impressive, with excellent character models and lots of flashy colourful effects, accompanied by great stage backgrounds. The audio and soundtrack create an atmosphere that really heightens the feel of the battles, however I feel the dialogue is lacking and is somewhat flat compared to previous iterations of the series. Customisation of existing characters or creating completely new ones is also still present and the level of detail is brilliant. You can customise practically everything about your character. All in all the game is a solid one, it offers a great online experience that is not plagued by connectivity issues like many of this genre. The single player, sadly, leaves a lot to be desired.Report this review
This game has the best combat system for the whole series, and has some amazing custom creation options. It's really fun to play but it has some flaws like the forgettable and boring story mode, and really frustrating at higher difficulties, not to mention the ineffective training mode. On the other end the online is really amazing, and it has Ezio Auditore! A must have for fans!Report this review
