"Soulcalibur IV is a fun fighting game and solid overall game. It brings back its core elements of game play while adding a lot of variety in terms of characters, locales, and extras. The addition of the Star Wars universe is a fun addition, though some fans of the both series will argue otherwise. The game suffers from a lack of real depth or development but that is to be expected with fighting games. Overall, it's a very playable game and has enough variety to peak the interests of any gaming fan. However, its lack of real story and character development, plus the limitations of the nature of its game play, will have some players keeping SCIV in their libraries for the short term."
