Scott from The Controller Online writes: "Fighting games are strange beasts, they attract rabid fan bases, spawn competitive leagues and are a complete mystery to those on the outside. If you ask me though, the Soul Calibur series has always been the one that anyone could pick up and have at least some success with. Soul Calibur V keeps the tradition alive by being both easy to pick up but difficult to master. A number of changes have come along with this entry in the series and I think you’ll like some of them. Some others, I’m not so sure."
