RipTen: If you like fighting games, character customization, and awesome weapons and stabbing things with said weapons, then SoulCalibur V is the game for you!
Can't wait to play it tonight!!!
I have never played a SoulCalibur game. In fact, I've only ever played the Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat series when it comes to fighters. It looks fun but I'm just not sure a fighting game can be deep enough to warrant the cost of a new release these days.
It's really up to you, but I'm not a huge fan of fighting games and I have Soulcalibur V. This thing was worth every penny. Amazingly fun.
I've never really liked fighting games either but I may have to try this one.
Do want. D:
Loved IV. Can't wait to play this!
I dont know...the action in this game seemed fake to me. I liked when the others had Sony exclusive characters like Kratos, they made it alot better. Il probly save up for God of War 4
I don't quite understand your logic there. What do you mean?
there is no logic to that comment of theirs.
i fail to see any sense in your comment . Is is supposed to be fake compared to others ? Then what the hell does it have to do with kratos ? And the only sony exclusive sc chars were Heihachi and kratos . None of them fitting the timeline and style of Soul calibur's storyline . Ezio is probably the first character that can fit naturally there as an 16-17th century Italian character . SCV is set during the 17th century
fake? Well how long would a fight last if it was based on real if one were to take a hit from astaroths axe or any of the sharper pointed weapons any of the characters weld? Let alone take a hit, how would you possibley BLOCK the attack with any of the other weapons? Speaking of fake. How real do you think Kratos is?
Explain what you mean by fake? Also, I think God of War 4 isn't due for a while, so you should be clear to buy a couple of games before Santa Monica Studios pumps another out.
Because god of war is SOO real.
I still think street fighter has better mechanics. I can't get on with 3d fighters.
i dont think SC was even ever argued to have more depth and better mechanics . Compared to some 3d fighters like tekken and Virtua , its not qualified as deep neither . It's just different , as SC usually emphase even more pacing and space positioning than sticking to execution mastery . It's not random that rings out are even a big components of it
Right, the fun of Soul Calibur is managing that sphere of space around you and finding ways to break your opponent's. The mechanics are indeed straightforward, but the methods witch which two evenly matched players will try to break each other are quite varied. And yeah, Tekken and Virtua Fighter (and others) are very much about timing and rhythmic combo execution.
I'm enjoying it. Haven't even scratched the surface with the character creation mode. Critical Edge attacks are much more satisfying than the "fatalities" we got in SCIV. The story really isn't as bad as all of these reviewers are saying, it's also pretty mature. Shit gets pretty real in Patrokolos' life from the get go.
