Having played the 'soul' series since Blade on the PS1, and being one of the tragically few people to have owned a Dreamcast with Soul Calibur 1, I was a bit dissapointed with the xbox incarnation of the series. I didnt find much evolution in SC 2, and number 3 was, frankly, poor.
I held out hope that this new gen of console would breath life into the franchise and thank goodness I have not been let down. SC has always had beautiful backgrounds and cut scenes, but in SC4 the character detail is on another level- the animation and graphical clarity during fights has never been better, with a real sense of solidity and depth to the characters. The 'create a fighter' mode is great, even if you cannot combine move sets from different characters. The inclusion of the Star Wars universe does not grate on me as much as I though it would, and Yoda leaping about like when he fought Duku in the movies is a lot of fun- at least he is a bit 'different' and not like Spawn in SC2, who felt merely like a familiar fighter with a different character model patched over the top.
The joy of the SC series is that, for purists, there is depth, but it still allows 'button mashers' to pull off some great combos. Some see this as a fault, but i love the fact that in vs mode I cant take for granted that I can beat someone less familiar with the game- every fight is challenging.
I am not online, but can only presume that, providing there are no lag issues, the vs mode will be as entertaining as it is in 'meatspace'.
If you loved SC, but felt let down by number 3, then let this game restore you faith in a truly great gaming series- its the best its been since it lived on the Dreamcast.

Having played most of the SC games on various machines this is up with the best ( ie SC2 ) . Having spent first couple of hours on arcade and wondering how Ivy can stand up let alone fight was very impressed. The create a character ends up experimenting with er hem hem er ladies in very little , oh well boyz will be boyz. Online can be daunting as high level players wipe the floor with you as getting up once down is nearly impossible , so it can end up a random button bash to even get on hit in .. I suppose practice and a good character is essential. So not a five star game as it can get a little repeditive but all in all a worthy purchase.Plus I hear Darth Vader will be downloadable at some point , so lucky we are mmmm ..

A lot of people are 'reviewing' this on this page and saying you can't play as Vader but it is a well known fact that he will be available as DLC later on so thats that sorted. The last Soul Calibur game wasn't as good as it could've been and people were expecting something better than SC2 which I had on GCN with Link. This Soul Calibur is the true sequel to that because it keeps the same idea of console specific characters which makes the game different on each console. The addition of online play really saves this game because without it you wouldn't play on it for nearly as long and kicking your friend's arse as Yoda or even the Sith Apprentice is a lot of fun. It keeps all the favourite characters from the previous games like and fills the game with lovely next-gen graphics which makes it look amazing.

You know how in SC2, there was a mode where could go across a map, complete dungeons and stuff? well that's not in this one. There's only 3 modes, arcade(about ten minutes to complete) story(about 5 mins) and tower(up to two hours). Buy this game if you want a game to play with friends, but this is not a solo game.
On the positive side, there's a new character customisation feature that's pretty cool, customize your fighting style, clothes, weapons, voice, face, muscular biuld ETC. I made a load of final fantasy characters. It's fun to play with cloud or sephiroth, or even zell!
I will say this, it is worth getting for its current price. A new game costs up to 4 times as much so... yeah.

Soul Calibur IV may be a bit different to the last ones, but believe me it is one of the best, the graphics are astonishing. The on-line is great with xbox live. Yes there is yoda and a few other silly characters, but take the game for what it is, brilliant, personally i like using yoda as a character as he is great, but those who think its stupid to have yoda in soul calibur IV then you don't have too use him or them, overall a brill game for those who love fighting games like this. :)

Soulcalibur is one of the greatest fighting series' in the world. The games feel fresh everytime the are released and their system is great.

The system is brilliant. It is a simple fighting system but with little twists. Such as the soul gauge or gaurd impacting (More on them in a minute). Each character has a river of different moves, so it takes time to become a master. Because of the different moves, characters are drastically different. For example; Kilik is a fast character who's hits aren't strong but he can land lots of them, whereas Nightmare is a slow character so relies on the strenght of his hits to overpower the enemy.

The little ideas in the game really strengthen gameplay. Gaurd impacting, means even when an enemy is landing a combo on you, you can still counter and turn the tables. The 8-way-run is another thing, it was invented way back in Soul Blade - Platinum and has still made the Soulcalibur engine unique to other games such as Tekken or Street Fighter. One thing however, the Soul gauge, doesn't work quite as well. In theory the player should be able to execute special moves but meeting the requirements for this can take some time.

The game has many modes including STORY, ARCADE, VERSUS etc. But the one that is probably the most praised is Character Creation. The ability to create your own unique characters with hundreds of different options. My only problem is the lack of usable voices for the characters but it's only a small problem.

Summary:
+GREAT system
+Great variety
+Character creation rocks
-Some ideas didn't quite work

9/10, get this and improve your collection.

P.S: Please support Namco and purchase the upcoming Soul Calibur V (Xbox 360). Cheers
