I rather enjoyed 4...hate 5.

First off I would like to say I got a fair amount of achievements from just having fun and playing #4. With that being said I am giving #5 a rating of 1 because I was completely bored within the first 10 minutes. I gave this game 4 hours of my time thinking it'll get better, it didn't, it actually got worse. The story is terrible and yawn worthy, 3 people said the exact same thing in front of each other, they basically said: Spoilers

It seems Soul Calibur has chosen you.
Congratz, Soul calibur chose you.
Soul Calibur has chosen me?

A monkey could have written a better script, another huge problem I had with the story's cut scenes are in brown/white (yeah brown) and the other 20% are animated. That should be the other way around, it's like they wanted to cut corners and spend less on making the game by doing brown/yellow pictures with voices. Horrible, horrible idea. I only recommend playing this game if you:
#1: receive it as a gift.
#2: rent it but honestly the game isn't worth it.
#3: get one of your friends to exchange it with a game they would like to play.
The only positive thing I can say about this game is the online, which is pretty fun until you get someone who has modded their save and/or love to grief you. Oh by the way the music for this game is by far the most annoying, I feel bad for ps3 owners because they can't play their own music while playing a game. (Unless they have a mp3 player).
