Well this may be the worst but best in the franchise. What makes this game bad is the lack of modes, mainly story mode which forces you to play 2 crappy characters. The story itself becomes boring and drags on but its the only way to unlock the other characters and stages. Halfway I lost interest in story mode. It was the worst move Namco ever did on the series. I hope they learned from this mistake in the future. As for character creation, this is a massive improvement from IV. IV kinda forced you on picking out the clothing because of the stats (which I found really dumb) IV lacked on variety of custmization. V did it well which almost reminded of Soul calibur 3. So namco did nail this part. Theres a few mechanics added in the game (like the ones everyone here has already mentioned) having armor pieces come off was a bit weird almost as if your character is getting stripped haha. Honestly this one isnt as strong. Even IV wasnt as strong either but had a few more modes and challenges to keep you busy. 3 is still the strongest in the series with a much better story and your created character having a story. V introduces many new characters with no background. V really lacks on introductions. Even when you want to learn more on these characters you simply cant because namco messed up on not doing so making half or more than half of the roaster forgetable. Theres a level system where you can play online or offline (similar to tekken only as a level system. The more you progress the more stuff you unlock for character creation. This is kinda great which is like the main thing of the game but itll become tiring after a while. The gameplay is making it okay to get if its less tham 20 dollars.
