Review by Matt on 17th May, 2012
4 stars "A Pretty Good Effort"

Fans of the series and newcomers will like it, but the fight pace has been quickened, so it can be a bit chaotic.

The single player is very shallow and disappointing, particularly compared to what the single player modes have been like in Soul Calibur in the past. Soul Calibur always used to have good, unique modes, especially for a game of the fighting genre.

Buy expect to hone your skills and have a decent amount of fun in single player, but if that's your only motive for buying, best give it a miss until you get an internet connection or some mates.

Nevertheless, what it does, it does well.

2 stars "Could have been so much more...."

If you want a gorgeous online multiplayer game look no further. The combat system has improved greatly. If you want a single player experience where you fight and only fight this is good too.
However if you are looking for that same great stat tweaking rpg element present in Soul Calibur IV then forget it, gone are the stats, weapons and equipment are purely aesthetic now. That is not to say that the character creation is a complete bust. You can customize your characters to great depth sadly however it doesn't affect the gameplay (with the exception of the 3 custom fighting styles that can only be used by creating a character)
Also the story mode is a step backward – 20 fights with no real challenge like the previous 2 installments along with a rather poor story, lead characters and dialogue.

5 stars "Good Stuff"

Great game. Has its up and down, but the ups far exceed the downs. Definitely worth buying.

Review by Daniel on 3rd February, 2012
5 stars "AWESOME"

This game is fricken sweet! If you liked SCIV you will love this! There are heaps of new characters and the character creation has about 50× more options than SC4. You can level up your profile and unlock items and titles for online/offline play. You dont have to acquire gold to buy unlocked items either. The graphics are great! But still similar to SC4. The levels are gorgeous and the music is awesome. If you had even slightly contemplated it, buy it. You will love it.

Review by Paul on 7th February, 2012
5 stars "Better than SCIV"

If you are a long time fan of the series you will likely reach the conclusion that it is an improvement over SC4 but not quite as good as SC3.

There are nowhere near as many new characters as they promised, but that is far from a bad thing. A large number of customization options and characters are unlocked by a default (always a plus). However quite a few of the aforementioned options are simply lifted from SC4.

Overall compared to the rest of the series, the fights go faster, the AI is more friendly to players new to the genre (I'm not a very good player myself) and the story is a massive step forward.

If you like the series, I'd give it a go without hesitation. New to the series, I'd say it's worth looking into (videos etc).

SOULCALIBUR V is the latest entry in the premier weapons-based head-to-head fighting series and takes place 17 years after the events of SOULCALIBUR IV, continuing the epic story of warriors in search of the legendary Soul Swords in 17th century Europe.

The heroic battles transpire in a beautiful and fluid world with eye-popping graphics and visual appeal. SOULCALIBUR V tunes the battle, movement, and visual systems so players can pull off cool dynamic attacks with ease and battle with complete freedom.


  • A new generation – Follow the story of Patroklos, son of Sophitia as the battle for the Soul Swords continues
  • Multiple fighting styles – Choose from a roster of unique characters, each with their own deadly weapons, fighting styles and visual flare
  • Dynamic battles – Blow away your competition using finely tuned battle mechanics
  • Unlimited character customization – Create your personalized fighter with the most robust character creation tool in the SOULCALIBUR series
  • Face off against the competition – Challenge the computer AI, compete against your friends or challenge fighters from around the world with the massive online features


“…Soulcalibur V is at its absolute best with friends, when it's testing your skill, reaction times and trash talking ability. The combat is still great and the graphics are still beautiful. Outside of that, it's a slight disappointment, as this is the weakest single player experience in the series yet.” 7.5/10 – IGN

“Several new faces and game mechanics make SoulCalibur V the most robust chapter in this 3D weapon-based fighting series…Fans looking to relive the experience of SoulCalibur's early entries may be irked by this game's new additions. But once the steep learning curve is surmounted, you will find a fresh-yet-familiar fighting system that's fun to explore.” 7.5/10 – Gamespot

“..Soul Calibur V enjoys its triumphs, most notably the strong online element, as well as its shortfalls, such as the flat story and relative dearth of extra content. In spite of its mostly positive gameplay tweaks, though, it's in no real danger of reinventing the wheel. That's OK with us. In this fifth installment, Soul Calibur is as easy to enjoy as it ever was, and it brings with it enough new stuff to more than justify its existence.” 87/100 Gametrailers
