5.0 out of 5 stars Old faithful, 1 Aug. 2008

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Soul Calibur IV (PS3) (Video Game)
Fans of SC2+3 should know what to expect - same old same old - nothing much different here. Having said that, why tinker with (almost) perfection?
Story mode, arcade mode, a quest this time up and down a tower, it's all pretty familiar. More customisable than before, and enhanced damage effects mean if you hit em hard enough their clothes fall off! Still within the realms of decency of course.
Fighting styles aren't as varied as, say, Tekken (coming soon, hopefully) and mastering only a couple should see you through to the end, but what has always been special about this game (in my opinion) is it's beauty - and through HDMI on an HDTV it LOOKS amazing.
Haven't tried online yet (need to change my ISP) but this is where the REAL fun should start.
There are several new characters depending on format, but despite owning both consoles I have no intention of getting it on 360 - who on earth wants to be Yoda? On PS3 Darth Vader kicks some mean butt with some fancy moves or what about the equally hard Jedi apprentice?
A gritty blood 'n guts beat-em-up it isn't, but highly recommended if you like your violence a little more refined.
