Soulcalibur V


There's something that leaves me cold aboutSoulcalibur V and I'm having a hard time putting my finger on it.

I could complain a bit more about how I don't really have a character to fall back on in the roster, but that'd be reasonably petty. There's a big enough roster that you can probably find someone you like, and the few new guys are pretty interesting....

SoulCalibur V


The easy way to put it? SoulCalibur V is one hell of a good looking fighting game. The environments sparkle with detail and the animations are smooth and buttery. The downside? Some of the worst load times in recent memory.

Stay with Cheat Happens for more cheats for Soul Calibur as they become available.

Soulcalibur V


That’s the thing about Soulcalibur V. It’s got a lot of great ideas, but ultimately falls short of its potential. The epic saga between the two swords continues, but it spends too much time focusing on two characters. Many of the newcomers feel like...

SoulCalibur V


SoulCalibur has always been a flashy franchise - in more ways than one. When the original came out on the Sega Dreamcast, I was completely awestruck, and wasted hundreds of hours clanging swords and flinging people out of the ring

Soul Calibur V


I had a really bad feeling the other day when I turned off my PS3: I was probably never going to play Soul Calibur V again. I really like the

Soul Calibur V ultimately feels rushed. The modes are shadow of their normally robust nature, the character list has been reduced severely, and the net code is not as good as it should be. It seems like Namco was desperate to get in on the fighting...

SoulCalibur V


A fighting franchise smooths out the action and ramps up the excitement.

With the emphasis on player-to-player fighting, reliability over a network is essential, and SoulCalibur IV, the series’ first online entry, was notorious for early online lag. Tests suggest SCV is built on more robust network code, but as the full...

Soul Calibur V Review


Just to be clear, although I'm not a huge fighting fan, Soul Calibur is unquestionably my favorite series in the genre. I adored the original (it was one of only three games I ever bought for the Dreamcast), and I've played every entry since. I'm...

SoulCalibur V


Sex, souls, and swords; it’s hard not to find one of these pressed in your face during a heated SoulCalibur V battle, or at the very least when gazing upon the game’s Japanese marketing.

Soul Calibur V Review


Does the Soul Still Burn?

Balanced, classic Soul Calibur gameplay; Ezio Auditore da Firenze; NOT Yoda; Flawless online play; Huge depth in Create a Soul; Take custom characters online

Story Mode, all of it; Classic characters replaced with clones

Does the soul still burn? Consider mine reignited by Soul Calibur V.
