I don't expect much from the story mode in a fight game.

Really. Fighting games are just about the only genre left that can sustain itself based purely on its gameplay mechanics. To such a degree that many fans of the genre start to foam at the mouth if anyone dares point out that they're only paying for one aspect of a game.

But, hey, let's not go there.

If ur playing a fighting game for the story your doing it wrong.

The gameplay is really good but the story mode sucks I was hoping they fix that but no and it even has less content then SC4...really no character bio and no chronicles.

Again ... last time we got a Soulcalibur game with plenty of solo modes and features we got III, easily the worst game in the series. I'd rather they focus on getting the gameplay right first , wich they did

And it's story mode is still better than the norm , it just would obviously pales compared to MK9 or Blazblue

One problem I see with story mode is being forced to play as Patroklos. I want to create a custom character and play him in story mode. I don't think that would have been hard for Namco to include. Aside from no character creation mode, Soul Calibur on Dreamcast had a better single player experience IMO.

Was annoying CC id like each of the character to have their own story mode just like IV but what you gonna do... still fun to play.

But can someone tell me why Kilik is now Owl man from 4? And changed him with a monkey-like boy?

*Note: Owl man can randomly use all the characters different styles and weapons*
