decent fighting game but now with less contentBy DA200 (142 reviews) from Cambs , 05 Feb 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]Soul Cailbur games use to have a decent single player content, hours and hours of modes. The 4th game had modes removed and 5 has even more content removed. What is on offer is very simple and short. Story mode is the longest of around 20 fights at 3 rounds each, the new characters are forced on the player to use and the main person (Patroklos) is really terrible. Mixture of cgi, cutscenes and these hand drawn scenes patch the story together. Arcade mode is very short and does away with the endings of each character. Other modes are quick match mode, where you fight random generated characters to get their titles until you get bored. the final mode is legendary souls, where you fight very hard CPU characters.
Multiplayer is where a lot of work has been put into and works well. Played a few games and very smooth.
The graphics and lighting in-game is amazing, its the best looking fighter to date. New characters have been added, most are just old characters with the same moves or tweaked but Ezio from the assassin creed game is the guest fighter and works really well in the game.
Worth renting but disappointing single player content

Didn't like at allBy a customer , 15 May 2013Rented this along with dead or alive 5 and both have gone back the same day I just don't think fighting games like these are worth getting anymore Stick with tekken street fighter and mortal kombat I think
terible gameBy shortstuff143 (3 reviews) , 12 Dec 2012terrible game i played it for 5 minutes and put it back in the free post envelope and posted it back nothing like soul caliber 4 that game was amazing this seems like a cheap copy just to earn a bit of extra money
bad, bad gameBy a customer , 10 Dec 2012this game is very bad..... compered to the rest of the soul-caliber games its slower and most of the original characters are gone and the story is terrible. i dont recommend this game at all the only this i think is good is the graphics.
Sure, remove what made you great!By Gameconnoisseur (4 reviews) , 12 Nov 2012This game has destroyed what was a great series!!!
They basically got rid of a lot content which made soul calibir a great game to own. Now you'll play it for a few days then turn it into a shiny coaster!
There are no character endings! No edge master/weapon master mode. There is a story mode which focuses around 2 main players with some very quick cameo appearances of a few new characters. But yous till end up screaming at the computer 'WHO ARE YOU!!!!!'
If your a die hard fighting game lover you'll enjoy it, but if your getting this because of previous soul calibur games you will just feel cheated and angry at the developer.
The only way this game couyld redeem itself is by adding its missing contect through patches and DLC
Suprisingly GoodBy a customer , 07 Aug 2012SoulCalibur V is a good/decent fighting game, not as good as SC IV and III though, Ezio is a cool character im glad they put in the game. Bring on SoulCalibur VI
