Customer Reviews

Like most Strategy Guides, this is a very handy product to have.

Weaknesses: Not enough general descriptions of characters' orientations in the game.
Michael S. Valle
It's still a decent guide, but it's too bad that it isn't more extensive.

It may seem strange to expect any value from these strategy guides, as a rule I usually avoid game guides like the plague, knowing that I can usually find information that is both free and better online. However, through circumstance I don't recall (it may have been included as a promotion) I ended up the guide for Soul Calibur 2 (which if memory serves was also from Brady), which was surprisingly insightful. It had a good overview of how to play each character and their strengths and weaknesses.

I saw this new guide in stores and noticed that it was around twice as thick as the one for 2. I took this as a good sign and purchased it. Unfortunately, the extra thickness comes from a combination of the larger character roster, reprinting redundant information (like movelists for multiple characters who have the exact or mostly the same move list), and pages of character back stories and art.

Don't get me wrong, this book is attractive to look at, and contains information like movelists and the requirements for the tower treasures in a much more storeable and readable manner then say, a print out from gamefaqs would. There are also still small sections about specific strategies for playing each character and a general beginner guide for the mechanics, however there is far too little space spent on actual strategy, which I perhaps naively expected more of.

Like most Strategy Guides, this is a very handy product to have. However, please bear in mind that it is also not necessary for you to have this guide in order to get some help. There are countless websites on the internet with Walkthroughs and strategies for Soul Calibur IV. In my humble opinion, Strategy Guides are most useful for collectors like me.

The art work is very good. The quality of the paper and the bindings are right on par with other guides. The information is very accurate and very helpful. My only complaint is that some of the pages are in dark color, with the text also in dark color. Dark text on a dark background is very hard to read.

Some Strategy Guides can go up in value. I recall selling a Strategy Guide for a lot more than what I had paid for it. It was a Strategy Guide for an old Playstation RPG called Legends of Mana. I do not expect this Strategy Guide to go up in value and become a collector's item. However, if you are a big fan of the Soul Calibur franchise, this item belongs in your collection.

...but then, so does the game. You can just pause the game to see what each fighter's moves are. So, this has them laid out for you, which is superior for remembering them, I think.
However, I mostly got this guide to show me how the Custom Character items are unlocked, and it barely touches on that aspect of the game.
It's still a decent guide, but it's too bad that it isn't more extensive.

Soul Caliber 4 was my first genuine effort in "fighting games" and I was somewhat at a loss as to strategy. Some reviewers have complained that the guide prints the move lists, but I see this as a positive, since its incredibly annoying to pause the game and navigate through the menus to find the move lists. If you have the book, the entire movelist is laid out in front of you for quick perusing. The guide also describes the close-range, mid-range and long range strategies for each character, which players of most levels will benefit from. It also describes the various modes, such as Tower of Souls and how to acquire the hidden items on each level. Without this knowledge, it would be pure-trial and error to acquire each item and would literally take 10x as long (I guarantee there are few people who would sit there and figure out each item). All in all, this guide is far more useful than comparable guides for other types of games (eg: fable 2). Unless you're already a pro, you'd most likely benefit on some level from this guide.
