1.0 out of 5 stars A Tremendous Disappointment All Around May 15, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Hard to beleive we've hit the number Five when it comes to the Soul Calibur series...though technically it is the 6th game in the series. Funny how it clearly shows that not everything will age gracefully...Soul Calibur 5 is easily one of the most dreadfully disappointing releases in years.

I have fond, wonderful memories of firing up Soul Blade (or Soul Edge) on my Playstation back in 1996. It immediately impressed me with its stunning visuals, epic weapon-based combat and interesting characters...and on top of it all, it had individual story modes for each character where you could collect weapons for use in all game modes. How cool was that? It was a model that very few fighting games would ever adopt. When Soul Calibur was released a few years later in arcades, it would become one of the greatest home console releases ever with a quality of animation and gameplay that still has yet to be replicated...and on the ill-fated Dreamcast to boot (a system way ahead of its time). Sadly, the deterioration of quality rings true for the series' own offspring as the years go by.

I grimaced when later incarnations of the series introduced out-of-place, super-exaggerated anime style characters (Tira). I cringed when Lucas got his Star Wars in my Soul Calibur. But Soul Calibur 5 proves to be the ultimate disappointment...a crowning failure for the series as a whole.

Story:
...or lack thereof. Soul Calibur features a Story Mode, a method of gameplay that builds up a character or two, defining their reason for fighting and taking the player through a journey that spans Europe and Asia. You follow irritating and reprehensible Patrokolos, son of Sophitia who is the new "chosen one" to wield Soul Calibur.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for the combat and superb online February 28, 2012
By L. Pham
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My brother and I have spent hundreds, maybe thousands, of hours each on this series since Soul Calibur on Dreamcast. Probably only about 100 of those hours went into single player.
I'll agree with all the other reviewers that the single player experience in this game is lacking. Story mode is 2 hours of play. After that you have Quick Battle to earn 240 titles and Legendary Souls. The A ranked AI in those modes will eat your lunch if you are uninitiated. I consider it tough but very doable. It was somewhat easier than SC4's Tower of Souls. I'll remove one star for the single player. It just doesn't matter to me that much.

The meat of this game is in the fantastic online. The netcode is among the best in fighters. 4 or 5 bar connection is very close to playing on the same console. It is possible to block low attacks and punish on reaction.

THE ONLINE MODES:

RANKED: You play for online world rankings. By default the search for an opponent is set to 4 bars or better. You get 10 seconds to confirm the fight. AFK searchers become a non-issue.

PLAYER MATCHES: Player created rooms. Up to six people can join a lobby. Cool thing about this mode is that spectating is done in a window. The spectators can use the chat window to communicate while the battle rages on. Nice addition. Again, 10 seconds to confirm the fight when it's your turn or you get bumped to the end of the line.

GLOBAL COLESSEO: Huge region based rooms where you can challenge other players specifically, join a pool of random matches, take part in tournaments, or just chat.

REPLAY: I love this feature. Anytime you play online your battle is stored temporarily. You can save and upload these replays to cherish your most awesome moments forever or study what went wrong.

I'll be discussing various parts of the game in this review.

ARCADE MODE

After enjoying all previous titles in the series, I was excited to get my hands on this one. I fired up Arcade mode from the Offline Play menu, selected a character, played through 6 battles, and...no character ending? What?!

That's right. There are no character endings in the game. Period. The only "ending" is in Story mode.

There's a few more offline play modes but they're just standard variations like Quick Battles, Training Mode, and Vs Mode.

STORY MODE

Story mode can be beaten in 3-4 hours. You start off playing as Sophitia's son, Patroklos, and then you will use 2 more characters as the story progresses through 20 battles.

Cutscenes consists of still black and white drawings. The acting is overly dramatic and the story itself is full of terrible writing, forced character archetypes, and illogical decisions and actions made by characters.

It also gives the impression that a lot of the story is happening off screen.

New characters are introduced but none of their background is ever explained.

NEW CHARACTERS

These new characters are near carbon copies of characters from the previous games such as Taki, Kilik, etc. They have only slight variations to their movesets.

ONLINE PLAY

I'm not going to go into much detail with Online mode. The netcode is much better than it was in SC4 so you can actually play online against others and it won't be a laggy mess.

CREATE A SOUL

Create A Soul returns once again but doesn't have as much content and variety.
