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.

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.

To make it short, let's list the good and bad things in this game:

Good:
- New characters to replace some aging (but still loved and missed...) old ones
- New combat dynamics make the game faster, harder. The new just guard system rewards aggressive players.
- Good Online Functionalities
- Superb graphisms, even better than those of the precedent opus.
- Nice and diverse customization possibilities for original fighters in the "Create your own character mode"
- DLC: old soundtracks of Souledge/Blade and Soulcalibur 1 available!

Bad:
- Noticeable gameplay inbalances: some very powerful, heavy armed characters are quicker than lightweight, weaker ones. In the past Soulcalibur games, the physics were realisticaly rendered for each type of character and weaponry. This is no more the case.
This means that in the coming weeks a great amount of online players are going to be playing with the same "inba" characters. Prepare yourself to play a LOT against Siegfried.
- An almost totally absent single player mode. If you don't have any internet connection, the game loses almost 70% of its content.
- The new "just guard" system requires a timing precision that is -during online play- tragically hindered by the inherent properties of an "average" internet connection.
- Lots of mimic characters (3! which represents 10% of the cast)
- If you except 2 characters (Pyrrha and Patroklos) every other (old or new) characters appear to be totally "empty" because of the lack of content regarding them. No story mode whatsoever. No explanation regarding their reasons to be here or to have replaced their older counterparts.
