Great new game with interesting new characters. Character creation is really
really good. Its a pity theres only a story based around 4–5 characters
instead of the old style of story mode thats in the other games.
This was my 3rd SC game I had played and my first SC purchase, and it was a
great choice that I did buy the game. Interesting new characters and a unique
campaign from the rest, although it is rather short.
But what it lacks in campaign it makes up for in customization and
multiplayer. The dialog can be hard to follow and boring at times but after
completing the single player side of the game and some multiplayer you'll keep
coming back to the game for more. Overall a fun, addictive and nostalgic
Let's get one thing straight, if you do not like Soul Caliber, then you will
not like this game. I you love the old Soul Caliber then you will not like this
game. However if you are open to change, appreciate a quality and well rendered
fighting game, you will enjoy it.
This edition comes with the game in a book style case (even the edges of the
pages look authentic) and lots of extras inside, all of which are worth the
price. The soundtrack is very cinematic and well put together, the dvd is decent
quality and has good inside info on the game build.
If you are a fan of the series and want to build your own character and play
through the story or play online with it, then this is also a game for you.
It may not be the perfect weapons/fighting game for everyone, but for the
price, this collectors edition is ell worth it!
Just brought this one for a friend of mine and cannot express my surprise on
what a neat, attractive and professional looking Limited Edition! For those
looking to pick up an awesome game for the friends and battle head to head look
Damn! this game is so awesome~
Got it at a bargain price… Love the game & all the awesome extras.
Highly recommended.! ;)
Saw the box set at a great price and bought on impulse for my son.
He was happy with it and the contents.
Game play visuals are very 'pretty’ and the two player vs mode rewards
players who know the combo’s and not button bash (like me).
Campaign seemed short as my son clocked it very quickly that day but the real
value of these games comes with playing against another human.
I love this game to pieces I would be lost if this game ever got broken
I love it so much :D
While this is missing a lot of the “classic” Soul Calibur characters, the
gameplay is a massive improvement over SC4 and it's still as fun as ever to
play with friends.
Highly recommended if you can pick it up cheap.
I'm not the biggest fan with weapon fighting games but for $15
Collector's Edition Soul Calibur 5!- Who wouldn't love it! I'm also a fan of
Assassin's Creed so using Ezio is pretty cool. I give it 5 star because of
price, fun game play and it's a game you don't have to spend too much
First off I would like to add I am not a fan of the Soul Calibur Series.
I pretty much bought this game with just reading a little about it
This is a great fighting game. It plays in some ways similar to the Tekken
Series. Although I found it requires using your weapon attacks and blocking
much more strategically against your opponent rather than just button mashing
Which you can only do in this game on Easy difficulty setting, even then it
has mixed results. The Graphics to me felt more 3D than 2.5D as the arenas are
very interactive and in some instances you can destroy them. I felt this really
added to the fun factor.
This game also has a neat leveling up system where each fight you win earns
you points. You get more points if you get better combos and perfect ratings.
When you level up you unlock items and costumes from what I can tell
This collectors edition comes with an amazing art book containing some
biographical details about all the characters and accompanying art and concept
art of each character. It also comes with an original soundtrack CD and a making
I have yet to view those features as of typing this.
Lastly you are given a signed letter from the Producer and Director of Soul
Calibur V thanking you for supporting them in making this game.
Which I thought was a nice touch to add to this box set especially for the true
and loyal fans of this series.
It all comes in a lovely red velvet lined case that resembles a grand looking
hard cover book or tome. Being a book lover I was especially delighted in this
Before I bought this game I was not a fan of the Soul Calibur series. I am
now however a fan of Soul Calibur V and I look forward to seeing what the
creators of this game come up with next.
If you are a lover of the Tekken series or even just fighting games in
general then I highly recommend this enjoyable game.
Worth the money for collectors
Very. Happy thank you
One of the worst games I have ever gotten on PS3, the story is lacking and
it is very boring. The fight system is also really bad, it makes it confusing by
replacing the ps3 buttons with letters. The only good thing about the collectors
edition was everything but the game.
Overall this game is super bad…0.5/10
The story mode is a little lacking although this is the general direction
Namco are taking with the story components in their fighters and so this problem
isn't exclusive to Soul Calibur V (Think Tekken 6 Scenario Campaign). The meat
of the game however, which is what you should be buying the game for, is solid
and fluid. Some of the old characters are missing from this installment replaced
with new ones. While this may upset some players, it makes sense as the game is
set 17 years later. I'm pretty sure Taki doesn't want to spend her retirement
years in perpetual combat.
Quick battle mode is fun pitting you against player created characters, although
opponents can variety widely in difficulty (α Patroklos-based characters in
particular). As with any fighter the game gets better with competitive play
either on or offline.
Great box design collectors edition)
Linear story mode
Unable to change arcade rounds
I thought id write a review of SCV because a lot of people might be looking
at it because its on sale.
If you liked all the older SC games, then don't buy this and wait till they
release a new one.
Its dissapointing. Single players “Story” is not even worth playing, which
was what made SC games good in the first place. Character customization is
pretty much the same as 4. Special characters are douchbags youd never select
anyway. Get 4 instead, least its got other modes as well to play. Graphics arnt
that much better either
I am so glad I didn't pay full price for this, the paraphenalia that
accompanied the game was great but the game itself is a step backwards from its
Game play takes a bit to load good graphics and teenagers think its pretty
Graphics are amazing, but the game needs more characters, and I still have
to get used to the buttons. But overall its a good game and well worth what
I paid for it.
I've been playing SC since II, played I on a friends Dreamcast but not
thoroughly, the “story mode” has an initial cutscene which is the norm and
was fine but after that first one, everything else is a motion-manga which
annoyed the hell out of me, and most of the other characters have been replaced
with different characters that do the exact same thing they did so I found it
to be stupid and there to be no reason for it, I just gave up on my first hour
I mean, seriously.........The last Soul Calibur that was released was
probably the worst game continuation of all time......I mean, yeah the graphics
are obviously better and yeah there are more characters to play as.......Other
than that, the game was, and still is, complete and utter crap!!
