Great 3D fighting game!
This is another outstanding installment in one of the best 3D fighting series around (this and Tekken are the two great series in 3D fighting in my opinion). The graphics in Soul Calibur V are brilliant, boasting deep, vibrant colors and a high level of detail and clarity in all images. Both characters and backgrounds look great. The animation is fluid and natural looking. Soul Calibur continues to have some of the best graphics in any fighting series. The gameplay feels better than in SC IV. I am able to pull of moves and combos easier than in earlier installments of the SC series. The gameplay in SC was always great, but SC V makes it better! The Original Japanese voice cast does a better job as the characters than the English dub cast, but my only real complaint is that some characters I really liked from Soul Calibur IV are missing in acion! Particularly these three: Soung-Mina, Talim and Yueng-Sung. I like the new characters, but I also liked these classic characters. If Namco were to make these characters available as a PSN download (which I don't see any reason not to#, SC V would be perfect. If anyone from Namco is reading this, please make these characters available as DLC! I will defenitely buy them either individually or as a set #an SC IV character set would be great).
