Fans of the Soul Calibur series who are looking for tons of character selection, tons of fight modes, solid/interesting storylines and cutscenes will be disappointed. The only thing that is worth the time investment is probably the character creation. I enjoyed customizing my own fighter. Graphics are pretty to look at, but it didn't keep my interest. I kept this rental for one day and shipped it back the next. Maybe it's me and I've grown out of this fighting genre. It's a solid fighter, just nothing new was added.

I played 4 like crazy, fighting was complete and it was much more competitive.
5 felt like it was rush and all moves from the previous game was simplified. Sad thing is this game has gotten noob friendly, most of the characters has their stances removed and it just destroyed it. Not worth renting or buying.
Have I mention that there are 5 mimic characters? The famous Kilik is mimic as well and doesn't play his own moves. The new characters Viola, Z.W.E.L Patrokalos and whatever that wannabe Sophita move style are all garbage.
If someone gave me this game for free or as a gift, I would immediately sell it to craigslist or gamestop, if none taken i'll throw the game away.
This has to be the worst game ive ever rented since joining gamefly.
I loved some of the old soul caliburs so I was excited for this, but what a dissapointment.
The story mode took me maybe 2 hours to beat, and the story itself was horrible, and the ending even worse. and the only other game mode is arcade challange (wack 6 fight thing with no reward) and online.
Tried for an hour to get a match online and I couldnt!
what was the point of this game besides a money grab!?!?! I'll never play soul calibur again.
So upset I wasted my gameQ slot on this now im missing the kingdoms of amalur release!
