4.0 out of 5 stars The legend will never die, 18 Feb 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Soul Calibur V - Collector's Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
I must start by explaining how much I love Soulcalibur. So when I heard they were working on Soulcalibur V (Actually the eighth game) I got so hyped. Reading every bit of news. I recieved my copy on the release date and got playing.

So the first thing to comment on would be the game modes. I straight away went onto the story which was ultimately dissapointing. The characters are boring and the story is ridiculous. But the worst thing about it is it's length. It took me two hours to complete. But let's not steer away from the combat, it's swell. It has always been and they've improved it again. Adiing new features such as the helpful quick step and the powerful critical edge. So it is always fun to have battles because the system is great. Unfortunately, this apparently didn't apply to single player modes because there are barely any of them.

Seriously, what happened to the Museums, or challenge modes? Why isn't the amazing 'Chronicles of the sword' form Soulcalibur III back? They haven't got any good modes for single player. Yes there's the story and arcade but what else? Training and quick battle. Quick battle is nice to play around with, but eventually gets boring.But there is hope in the form of Character Creation. The greatest creation enegine in any game by far, with unlimited possibilities. It is genuinely enertaining.

Now onto the online, there's not much to say here because it's the same in every game. You battle online against others around the world. There is one interesting thing, the online is basically lag- free whereas SCIV had tons of lag.

But what about the collectors features? The artbook is interesting and a good substitute for the lack of a museum in game. The Making of DVD is interesting, giving a good look behind the scenes. The DLC is pointless, and I barely even used them. The signed art is a good collectors peice. And finally, the letter is actually really nice to have. But it's not worth getting it unless you are a fan of the series.

FINAL VERDICT:
+ Graphics are beautiful
+ Great system
+ Character creation is fun
- Far too little offline modes

If you want to battle me add me as a friend with Xbox gamertag Monkeybot 129, please attach a message.
