Let me start of by saying that I'm a big Soul Calibur fan and was looking forward to playing quite possibly the best version of the series since this was the first of the series on the next-gen consoles how "wrong" I was. Soulcalibur IV offers nothing new, in fact it seems to be worse then any other fighting game I have played. The story lines are extremely short and seemed rushed since they only go for 10 minutes, the game play is boring and lacks anything new from previous versions, and the controller movements are terrible, I mean you can not even use the right-analog stick to fight, all you do is move around and mash buttons on the controller. Through to be fair there is a couple of upsides to the game since Yoda and Darth Vader are available, and there is a significant graphic improvement through besides from this I suggest you keep away from the fourth-installment and stick with Soul Calibur 3 which can be found on PS2. I only hope that when/If Soulcalibur V is to be released that the game developers learn from there mistakes and go back to making quality Soulcalibur games.
