“Soulcalibur V will be faster, lighter, and more elegant,” says producer - GamesRadar

Gamesradar: "Welcome back to the stage of history! With a tentative release date set for 2012, Namco Bandai was only able to give GamesRadar a brief glimpse of what fans can expect from the next Soulcalibur title. But what we saw still looked promising.

According to Tago, the team’s goal is to make Soulcalibur V “faster, lighter, and more elegant.” While we don’t know how much more “elegant” Soulcalibur could possibly get, the demo we saw did seem much faster than IV. Taking a cue from SSF IV, the gauge near your health bar for fueling special attacks charged up more quickly, bringing hard-hitting attacks into play earlier in the rounds."

There is no way I can continue with this series. They just keep changing EVERYTHING. Combos, attacks, the button inputs, are all change with each new SoulCalibur game. Its like I have to relearn how to play SC each time a new one comes out and I don't think I've ever seen a fighting game series do something like this.

The character designs in SoulCalibur 4 and 5 are terrible! They all have the same faces. The new character Pyrrha looks just like Cassandra and the new character Patroklos looks just like Raphael. Are they making all of these characters with the character creation mode? If so, they really need to stop it.

"The new character Pyrrha looks just like Cassandra"
Cassandra is her aunt.
"the new character Patroklos looks just like Raphael"

"They just keep changing EVERYTHING. Combos, attacks, the button inputs, are all change with each new SoulCalibur game."

I have plenty of aunts and uncles and I do not look EXACTLY like them. Just because two people are related, that doesn't mean they should look identical. Patroklos is cookie cutter like most of the characters in this series.

There is probably over 30 characters in SC4 (50+ if you count the whole series) and the best you could come up with is four names. . . seems to prove my point.

These developers lack creativity and originality. There is no reason to defend them. Just look at the comments on the source page. Everyone there is pretty much saying the same thing as me.

@VTKC. Ivy used to be my main and I was rather good with Tira and Talim, but the changes they made to them handicapped them more than anything else. I never thought I would say this, but Talim is one of the worst characters in SC4.

ROFl i only stated 4 names because i didn't want to write a wall of text .

And if you know Soo many cases where familly members do NOT look alike one generation later then congrats because the oposite is also true.

It is also not may fault that you mistake characters so much.
raphael doesn't move like patroklos, nor do they have the same aura or presence onscreen. Actually i'm following Soul calibur news and you're the first to make that kind of connexion(on foroms at least ) ..

It doesn't bother me AS much as it's bothering you..
"Patroklos is cookie cutter like most of the characters in this series. "
And you know that because ? yeah of course you've obviously played the game...

"Ivy used to be my main and I was rather good with Tira and Talim, but the changes they made to them handicapped them more than anything else."
The only changes they 've made with Ivy were on the range and attack proprieties ( meaning that the combos you're spamming don't work anymore)

it's nothing différent than what is done in other fighting games ... what's wrong with balancing a fighting game again ?
next time you'll complaining that the sequel is the same thing and for that you've wasted your money ...

I totally know what you mean MADDFOXX. I was especially annoyed with the movelist. Everytime they bring a new game out. You have to like re-learn EVERYTHING and that includes your favourite character. I am a fan since Soul Edge. But it is getting rather rediculous. It reminds me of the King of fighters games. They also like to change/add/remove and re-add characters moves.

I use to like Tira alot in SC3. But I could not play as her anymore in SC4 because of the changes. Voldo my favourite of all I had to grudgingly re-learn since the previous game.

oh yeah Ivy! She use to able to change stances instantly from between swinging whip form in front, to above her head or wrapped around her. I cant remember which previous game that was. and also she could change sword form almost instantly with just the motion quarter circle back. I always dread fighting her. I fount it hard to know what to expect with her being able to do attacks that went into different stances as well.
