Soulcalibur IV holds up the series' tradition of high quality fighting action. The game is easy to get into, but takes commitment to see its true depth. However, the latest additions to the game, outside of online play, are not really substantial, the guest characters are silly and very unbalanced, and the AI is extremely inconsistent – yet it is still a very enjoyable experience. Project Soul will need to try a bit harder to impress with any future sequel; more modes, better AI and some balance tweaks would go a long way. Still, Soulcalibur IV should satisfy anyone looking for a good one on one fighter.
