Looks decent though I kind of felt that they peaked with Soul Blade. The graphics kept getting way better but I liked the way the original was set up best.

I'd say "SoulCalibur" for the Dreamcast was the best game in the series. It looked astonishing for its time, played great (especially with an arcade stick), the extra challenges had more variety than the ones in "Soul Edge"/"Soul Blade", and there was a ton of unlockable stuff. However, no single feature was ever as cool as the secret real-time endings in Soul Blade... which, in the early days of the public internet, you had to find for yourself!

As for this new iteration: I fear I'm getting too old for all this flashy unblockable super move shit (which started in SC2). Just give me a tactical game where I can dodge attacks with Taki or power through with Siegfried! And I really dislike that all Unreal Engine games from Japan (with the exception of most Square Enix titles) look like low-end PC games. I'm not a technical artist, but I find visible polygons on virtual boobs in this day and age disappointing.

I want to get it, but not at that price point.

Really wish they would do something better/different with the graphics as well. These days a straight up 3D fighter looks really bad in my opinion.

Played some last night with my wife. She doesn't play many games aside from Candy Crush and the occasional MMO, but she always beats my ass on fighting games. She just mashes buttons while I try to pull off moves, advancing aggressively the whole time. I went 0 for 3 against her. Damn it!

Best home Soul Calibur since the Dreamcast version.

Really enjoying it.

Am I alone in wishing they would bring back the assortment of off-shoot weapons from SC3 for character creation? That was my favorite title just because of the weird side-story mode where you built characters and fought them against an enemy "army."

I used to dominate with the Grieve Edge boot-knife weapon and I've missed it ever since.
