Ever since it debuted in arcades a decade ago, the original SoulCalibur has been widely revered as one of the greatest fighting games of all time. Now, NAMCO Bandai is releasing the fourth entry to the beloved fighting franchise (fifth if you count Soul Blade), SoulCalibur IV on next-gen systems. While the gameplay isn't far removed from the previous entries in the series, SoulCalibur IV does add some great new elements, like a more fleshed out Character Creation mode and online play. Unfortunately, there are a couple of issues with the game, namely a short and lackluster story mode and a few elements that aren't as fleshed out as they could be. This is not likely to deter most fighting fans, however, as the basic mechanics and stellar fighting that has garnered the series millions of fans are still here, making it worth a look for hardcore fighting game fans.
