Wow, SC5? Remember when SC used to be really good? Yeah well I feel that time is gone. The story mode is one of the worst fighting story's I ever played. It is beyond terrible but that is not what makes the game weak. What makes it weak is that it is just not fun to play more. It really is just the same thing over and over again. There is nothing too it anymore. The controls are more simply and yet it feels so different. To me, it just is not fun anymore.

Bad

Dissapointment

I was SO hoping this game would live up to my expectations but alas it did not. The main problem i realized was that while other fighting games maintain the same move set for there characters Soul Calibur consistently changes theirs every title. I understand that if your brining in a new character they should fight differently than their prior similar counterpart, HOWEVER, if you place that counter part in the game as a secret character (Cough, Kilik, Cough), he should use his old move set. But no the older characters and newer ones always have new (Setsuka). It doesnt even make sense he should use the style the he quotes is "Athenian" when its clearly a Japanese fighting style. Overall I was highly dissapointed when looking to continue my enjoyment for previous Soul Caliburs. The only semi good factor is the character creation feature but unfortunately once thats done your back to bad move sets.
