SoulCalibur V Collector's Edition
Judging from the rating people have barely dug into this game there are a good amount of characters but every character is so different with different combos and attacks. i admit the story was disappointing but the Xbox live is extremely fun and so is playing with friends i cant stop playing this game. The game is difficult to get used to because you cant just button mash x u have to strategize and anticipate what your character will do. every CPU is different depending on the character so your same combo wont work good for every character. as for the lack of characters i have 2 words CHARACTER CREATION! for people that are really good at the game there is a mode called legendary souls. the collectors edition is pretty cool but not worth the extra money i would recommend just getting the regular game. but all in all great fighting game the other reviews are by people who have barely amerced themselves in this beautifully made game.
My personal favorite fighter.
I've been a fan of the Soul Calibur series since Soul Calibur II and have loved every release to come since. I pre-ordered this game (I know it's been a while since its release but I just started writing reviews on here) and had some big expectations for it. Soul Calibur V did not disappoint. I love most the new innovations in the game mechanics and the graphics are simply astounding. I like the new characters, even if I was more than a little disappointed to see one of my old favorites get cut from the roster (Talim). Online is great, the best online I've played in all honesty. Definitely a huge step up from Soul Calibur IV's. The story was a bit disappointing because they did away with individual character endings... but that's really my only real complaint with the game. All in all, this is a spectacular game and even with Tekken Tag 2 out now (which I also love... though, not quite as much), I believe Soul Calibur V is still a must have for any fighting game fan.
Get it now!
Okay, first the book. This is a very high-quality case, which looks exactly like the book seen in Soulcalibur 3 and the soundtrack and making-of stuff is all on the inside front cover. The game itself is in a normal game box, nothing special, but I chose to keep it in the book and display it on my entertainment center. The DLC is really cool and every true Soulcalibur fan needs it for their Creation mode. You can make the best looking villians ever, trust me. Story mode is too short, but every other mode has been improved so much that this could barely be compared to the last entry. You have to unlock stuff for Creation by playing, but you don't get cash, it becomes available naturally. Ezio is a remarkablely well-suited fighter for this game and I honestly hope he comes back in the next game...but of course, he won't. The actual new characters are all kind of lame, but there's still Nightmare, Voldo, Mitsurugi, Ivy and a couple more faves. By the way, Ivy finally has a sense of modesty. If that just made you hate this game, I'm sorry. Arcade mode is way better than ever. Multiplayer has more modes and ways to play. All in all, Awesome!
A fresh breath of pure 1 vs 1 fun
I have grown tired of COD making the same game over and over again with a few new guns and the same makes from previous games it's time for a change from repeated shooters that don't meat the standards and lets get back to a good old 1 vs 1 fighter. It seems to have a lot of the old favorites with a few new looks to the classics and a great mix of new playable characters as well including every ones favorite assassin Ezio and the son of Sophitia "Patroklos" . Over all the graphics and game play look great to me and the collectors edition has some nice looking DLC to boot. I myself we be ordering the collectors addition because it looks to be a great addition to the soulCalibur family.
Fantastic so far
Soul Calibur is the second most exciting fighting game I've played in the last ten years. It's fun with a large variety of characters, and now your own hand made creations. This collectors edition is pretty well done for how much it's being sold for, fair price for alot of good items :) Skyrim's collectors edition is double the amount with less the items and well, hopefully it'll be worth it. Being a fan of AC, I'm glad Ezio is apart of the SC team and can't wait to get some targets!
Fairly new to the series but not so new to AC!
When Soulcalibur IV came out I checked it out and became instant fan :D! Most people didn't like it but I adored it! I had fuzzy memories of playing a fighting game with a friend of mine who was about 16 and I was only 10 or so, but I remembered Link and I traced it to Soulcalibur which surprised me since I thought Soulcalibur IV was the first one I played. But due to the few years of me playing Soulcalibur IV, I fell in love with the series. I went to my movie theater one night (When Iron Man 2 came out XD) and I went into the arcade room next to the entrance (which I never really do) and I saw there, sitting their in all its glory and amazingness. Soulcalibur, I was gitty so I spent many other nights at that arcade in the theater. I instantly became a fan of the series! I wasn't around for Soul Edge but at least I got to be apart of Soulcalibur. When V was announced, I was so excited! I thought that the customization must be pretty beefed up but I never thought it would be THAT beefed up! Its since then increased my want for this game! I made a theory that Assassins Creed would be involved in this by some weird chance due to some assassins creed titles that would release close around the same release date. It shook me up when Ezio was announced o.O. Anyways Ive been a AC fan since the beginning! AC and SCV wasn't my good idea for a combination, but after seeing the Ezio trailer, my doubts were laid to rest! I am very much so anticipating this game and I HIGHLY recommend this game to everyone! People new and old to the series! I'm still playing SCIV and it still isn't old for me :D. Even though I haven't been a die hard fan from the beginning I've bought SoulCalibur, SoulCalibur II, SoulCalibur IV, and have pre-ordered the collectors edition of V, for Xbox so far and will continue to be a fan whether the times be good or bad for until the discontinue the series(Which I hope will be many, many, MANY years from now!)
I rate SCV 10 out of 10 :3
Worst Soul Calibur Game
Unresponsive controls, inability to string basic attacks together, AI that even at the lowest difficulty setting is at times impossible to beat, real lack of any focus on the single player side caped off with a boring and predictable story mode. The player roster in this game is also greatly reduced from previous games in the series, leaving out a fair number of characters. Character creation does retain a lot of the options from previous games, however it removes the character building (IE strategy considerations) that were present in Soul Calibur IV. Multi player is what you would expect, however my biggest complaint here is that you are only able to sort by ranking and not by true skill level, ie search for only beginner opponents, or search for only advanced players, etc.
Save your money and do not buy this game, it is not worth the cost at current.
legend will never die.
Soul Calibur is a series thats been going on since PS1 with Soul Edge. It has a pretty good story for a fighting game and has always had fluid and exciting fighting. This is just the next link in the story of souls and swords.
I Knew Ezio was going to be in the game
I can't belive it. I was wondering before,"What if Ezio or Altiar was in Soul Calibur?" Now on Soul Calibur V, Ezio is in it.
Worst game in the series
If your like me you play the soul calibur games because of the well developed story and large cast of interesting charecters and in 3 & 4 the creation mode i am a long time fan so it pains me to say this but this game manges to basicly ignor every thing that made these games great it's story mode has only three playable charecter that the player doesn't even get to pick from unlike the others in the series it feels like we are stuck with two new and painfuly cliche charecters and a bunch of palet swaps of the charecters that we wanted in the game it's gameplay and graphics are what we expect but there is just no subpstence behind them i recomend you just get soul calibur 4 and hope that the excutives tell the team off and make them ignor this game and move on to 6 and fix this i can only call it a cheat
