Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been a fan of Soul Calibur since the third was released, I loved the dynamic flow of combat, the extra modes, the awesome characters, the great stories. Four was more of the same with a nice little star wars side plot, alongside our Soul Heroes. I played both three and four for years on end, adoring every minute of the masterfully crafted game play.

So as you can Imagine, I was eager to play Five, I got the collectors edition which has a lot of cool extra stuff, a soundtrack, Artwork etc. This is all great. How does Five play? In terms of combat its much like the last two, the fights are fast paced and fun, now onto something I loved in the last two, Characters and Story.

Oh. Dear. God. The story mode is cool featuring The new generation of the Alexandrian family, but its far too short, it feels rushed, and the characters..... This is where the game falls flat on its face. Ninety percent of the classics we know (Sophitia, Cassandra, Amy etc) Are gone. It says the game is set 17 Years after the 4th but in my opinion that was a massive mistake, because what we have are these new characters which yes are cool but they fight exactly like the old classics, meaning they're really not new at all, whats worse is the story only focuses on Two, meaning the rest have almost no, if any backstory whatsoever. What were you thinking Namco? Seriously!

The lack of single player modes is also a waste, bring back chronicles of swords, tower of souls, etc because apart from the story, single player wise, this has no replay value at all.

Being a fan of SC I've given some positive feedback but on whole feel that Five is nowhere near as good as it should be, one for Alexandria fans only I'm afraid, as the rest of the cast are at best forgetful.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 7 Aug 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I was given a PS3 for Christmas, and needed some new games for it. My favourite PS2 game was Soul Calibur 3. The graphics were great, I loved the characters, and there was so much to do. The Chronicles of the Sword mode was a brilliant addition, and the controls made it easy to learn but hard to master. When I heard about Soul Calibur 5, I clicked "Add to Basket" immediately.

What happened Namco? Why did you decide to drop the cool Weapon Master Mode and Chronicles of the Sword Mode and replace them with...nothing. Why did you decide to make all the characters sound American despite the fact that none of them are American? Ivy is the exception, and her accept couldn't be more stereotypical if she exclaimed "What Ho!" every time she attacked someone. You could have had them speak their native languages, like Tekken. Why did you get rid of classic characters like Talim, and completely ruin Nightmare? Why doesn't each character get their own Arcade Mode endings? Seriously, that's just lazy.

To be fair, the fighting is still solid, and the character customisation and creation is good fun. The online fighting's pretty good too.

But that's not enough good points. Namco, I expect better from you. If you're a fan of Soul Calibur, just buy a used copy of 3 or 2. They both still play really well, and are much better games. This isn't amazing. It's not bad, but it could've been so much more. Soul Calibur 6 had better be brilliant, otherwise this franchise is finished.

My mark: 6.5/10. Not bad, but not good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Devolution of a Franchise 27 Feb 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
From Soul Blade on PS1, through Soul Calibur on Dreamcast, right through its incarnation on 360/PS3, I have been an avid fan of this series, but to be honest, its not only wearing a bit thin, it is getting worse.

This latest installment relies on you being online. I am as it happens, but that does not mean I always want to play in this way, and to be honest, in the UK, where connection speeds are not particularly great, the lag in response does not really lend itself to fighting games online.

The single player options (such as they are) feel bolted on, and superfluous. So in essence, this is only half a finished product.

As to the graphics, yes they are lovely, and its nice to see a small amount of environment interaction, but its nothing to the extent that D.O.A. managed on the original Xbox, let alone this gen. of console; and graphics can only take a game so far.

As to gameplay. It just doesnt flow like it used to. There was a time when a SC game meant attacks with momentum, and an intuitive control system that invited experimentation. Sadly, the series is now veering towards 'joystic gymnastics' more akin to Streetfighter to get the combos and special moves going. And without these, all the characters basic attacks leave them strangely static.

I wanted to be sure that my assessment was fair, and not that of being jaded by familiarity, so I downloaded the Dreamcast port of Soulcalibur 1 on xboxlivearcade, and found myself playing it for HOURS. It may not be as pretty, but it plays 10x better than its Great Great Grandchild.

If there is to be a VI, then they need to do more than focus on online options, and address the gameplay and single player value.

As it stands, Part 5 feels more like an add-on pack for Part 4 than a fully realised game worthy of a full price tag.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun. But not significant enough a jump to buy if you have 4.
Great game. Fun characters. Ezio is great to use. Easy to pick and difficult to master.

Definitely a worthwhile game if you don't already have a Soul Cal game.

I really don't like this game. Graphically it is nothing exceptional: the characters in particular lack personality, they all look the same except for a different wig and clothes. Read more
