"The most disappointing feature of Soul Calibur IV is the Story Mode. Despite having nearly 30 characters to choose from, you'll fly by the story mode in less than 30 minutes. It's just not designed for long term play. So, if you're interested in keeping your soul burning get online."
"All in all, Soul Calibur IV is a great fighting game with an online component that edges out the competition. You'll get hours of game play online, just don't expect to be challenged in the Story mode."
