Those who don't have the time to dedicate their playing experience to an individual title, memorizing long lists of moves and combos to have an edge over online combatants--is it fun for them?
Short answer: yes. Soulcalibur IV is, in my opinion, the best fighting game this generation for both casual and hardcore fighting gamers.
That's probably no surprise to gaming veterans. It was Soulcalibur back on the Dreamcast that brought a new generation of gamers to the fighting arena, after all, with its innovative mixture of arcade and console features. Since 1999, Soulcalibur has easily been one of the most respected franchises in gaming, and Soulcalibur IV shows that the series still remains the king of the ring to this day."
