"Soul Calibur V"

Yet another iteration of a franchise that 's content to merely bolt on more embellishments and largely needless bells and whistles rather than do anything different or new with the idea. It's undeniably a great looking and enjoyable fighting game but if you own any of the others since the second instalment, it's not really worth adding this to your collection too.

Usually, when it comes to fighting game franchises, one per hardware generation is good enough, unless the developer is pulling a Capcom and releasing a ‘turbo’ or ‘super’ version of a game to squeeze a bit more blood out of the stone that is their target audience. Yet ‘SoulCalibur’ managed to defy this convention in the 6th Generation by releasing “SoulCalibur 2” as a multi-platform game with exclusive characters on each console and “SoulCalibur 3” as a PlayStation 2 exclusive with a great character creator and heaps of single-player content.

With “SoulCalibur 4” taking a nosedive in every department except graphics and online functionality, I w...
