Welcome to Gaia! ::

So was anyone else extremely disappointed with Soul Calibur 5? I mean, there totally wasn't any more storylines for each character. They only gave a damn about Patroklos and Pyrrha, whose stories were very disappointing and cliche. It was annoying. Also, I felt that the makes became lazy. I mean, there are 3 characters who have no original styles: Kilik, Elysium, and Edge Master. WTF one is enough.

Although I really like the style of Viola.

For the last game of my favorite fighting game, SCV was very disappointing for me. I highly prefer Soul Calibur 4. scream

I think its better than 4 in most ways. Though the lack of content and stuff just recycled from IV is ridiculous. The also removed characters which is just a terrible idea.

They removed Talim which is unacceptable. ZWEI's fighting style is awful, or I'm just not good with him. Cervantes has turned from awesome undead demon pirate to a flamboyant butt pirate (also nerfed to death). I do like how they gave Amy her own fighting style instead of a knock-off of Raphael's. Rock is gone, also unacceptable. The story was garbage and I would mistake Patroklos and Pyrrha for lovers had I not known better. Bonus features like character bios and whatnot are non-existent, you have to buy bonus music. Critical finishes are gone which is okay with me since it was near impossible to do them anyways, and I'm okay with the super attacks.

I haven't tried character customization, so no input on that.

There's a fighting game subforum btw.

I wish I could play this game with one hand.

They cut Talim from the game without any justification. That's reason enough for me to hate it.

Viola isn't Amy, actually, if that's who you're thinking about. And about the fighting game subforum, I only remember it after posting this thread. lol.

Breasts keep getting bigger and bigger...


Hmm? I thought they tried to control breast sizes this time around (well Ivy is always the exception) but they were able to control Taki's! By not putting her in there...

Meh, I'm good with the characters. The only characters they removed that I liked were Amy, Talim, and Cassandra. However, I've come to like Leixia, Natsu, and Xiba. I love the customization, but I hate the lack of modes (like Weapon Master, Tower of Lost Souls, etc.).

So far I'm easily finding this one to be the best in the series... especially after that abomination that is Soulcalibur IV.

Boobs are considerably decreased in size this time. Only two characters in the game have even remotely gratuitous outfits, and one of those is a bonus character who -still- isn't showing as much as she did in SCIV.

All the other girls are covered up.

The only other exception is the character creation, but that's an entirely different matter.

ℜinny says: SoulCalibur V makes the rest of the series look like s**t. The fighting mechanics are so much better than any of them. Plus the character creation is better.

I skipped Soul Calibur 3 and 4 as I didn't have the money to drive through the storys, but from 2 to 5 I noticed that the story was s**t; sure there is a more complex story than "stop nightmare"(my soul btw, no cheapness though), but it was much too short. I think they were going to just go with online play and character creation and be done. Legendary souls is not fair at all though :/ even if I spam I lose T.T
