I have been a long-time fan of the Soul Calibur series. You can look up my reviews over the years here on Amazon to see my previous comments on the earlier games in the series. I would also like to say beforehand, that I do not play games
online. I am a solitary gamer. I enjoy playing against the CPU. And, I also really enjoy creating my own unique characters. Before you read my review, please know that I am biased towards offline, or solitary gaming.

This latest edition of my favorite fighting game franchise was a bit of a let-down for me. There are very few activities for the solitary gamer. It seems just about all of the features of the game are geared towards the online gamer. Character Creation is very well done, though. You have many options to shape the character's physical build, voice, and costume. The additional equipment that you can purchase and download is a nice addition to your wardrobe. This is the best Character Creation out of all the SC games. But the Story Mode is not much to speak of. Unlike previous editions of SC, here you do not get to play the story from each individual character. You only get to play Story Mode as Patroklos and Phyrra. But, what if you do not like their fighting style? What if you don't like Patroklos as a character? Well, you are $h!t out of luck.

I would like to have seen something along the lines of Weapon Master Mode. Another strategy rpg mode, like Chronicles of the Sword, would have been welcomed. Unfortunately, there are none of those. This edition of SC really forgot about the solitary gamer. In short, if you are a solitary gamer, this game is not worth the full price. You will get very little out of it. Wait until the price comes down and then make your purchase.

The Good:

+A diverse cast of fighters
+Small tweaks to the gameplay really add something to the battle
+Customizable characters
+Gorgeous game and a great soundtrack
+Intense, fast paced gameplay is the best you're going to find in the series yet

The Bad:

-The story mode is forgettable
-The new characters are fun to play as, but no individual stories or relationships are explored
-It is actually a shame that Soul Calibur V offers the fewest amount of gameplay modes out of any game in the main series. The gameplay is immensely fun but previous games in the series have offered a much more robust single player experience

Soul Calibur has been a modern staple in the fighting game genre since the first game hit the arcade in the late 90's. Showing us interesting characters and creating an exciting fighting system that few games can imitate to this day. The games have always been fun to play because the gameplay has always been expanding. As the fighting genre evolves, however, Soul Calibur can't seem to keep up. Not because it offers something so similar with each new installment, but because it seems to offer less. Soul Calibur V is a good game, but only the die hard Soul Calibur fan is likely to appreciate it for what it is. If you're looking for great gameplay and a lot of fun, Soul Calibur V delivers. But it comes up short in other areas.

In terms of story, Soul Calibur V offers to take its story a bit more seriously than the fourth installment. Unfortunately, much of the story isn't a lot of fun. You'll be controlling Sophithia's son Patroklos. If you opt to play through the story, you're going to have to take time to get acquainted with him because you'll be playing as him a lot.

I could probably spend all day writing an article about why this game is a complete waste of time for fans of the series, but instead I'll opt to list my biggest problems:

1. As everyone else, from gaming site reviewers to customers here, has already noted, the story mode is a joke. Literally. You will laugh at the unintentionally awful "dramatic" lines. It takes about 90 minutes to complete, there's ONE ending, none of it is interesting or challenging, and you only get to play three characters (with some minor move variations). Why is this so bad? Might have something to do with the fact that the devs OUTSOURCED the story mode to another company, one that decided to craft what is arguably the first coherent story found in a Soul Calibur game but one that also lacks any semblance of joy. It is filled with anime cliches, an unlikable hero, terrible writing, mostly static cutscenes, and three of the less fun-to-play characters (although that's obviously a matter of opinion). On the other hand, you can rack up some quick and dirty trophies. What I wouldn't give for a return to challenge modes of Soul Calibur or SCIV instead of this crapola. Or, heck, Tekken 6's story mode was terrible but at least it was substantial and let you unlock each character's CG ending.

2. The arcade mode is now a time trial mode and nothing else. That's right, gone is the 15-year legacy of fun little stories for each character, the in-engine endings of Soul Blade and Soul Calibur IV, or even the lame written endings of Soul Calibur 1 and 2. You get six stages, timed, and that's it. Only one path is ranked and you can change the difficulty from a lamentably easy "normal" to a ball-burstingly frustrating "hard.
