I am a huge SC fan especially 4 so for me to say what is coming kills me.
All I have to say is I played this game for 2 day's and that was it. It is still siting here and have yet to touch it since it launched (basically). Compared to 4 this is a disgrace to SC as a franchise!
Combo's WEAK,
New feature's WEAK,
nerfed everybody WEAAAKKKKKKKKKKK,
There is nothing to like about this game! I am happy with MK9 where I can do big combo's have fun and not get bored the only thing this game got rite was the online...
able to set number of player's in lobby, and almost no lag... other than that this game... NO IM DONE.

Legendary Mode very nearly led to me drop-kicking my cat through the tv tonight. I'm keen for a challenge but this is complete and utter bulls**t!!!!

I really hate the AI, it's just total bullshit how much it spams attacks.
Perfect examples have been my past few games, one was some guy that would get me on the ground then just kick me until I was KO'ed, couldn't get up, nothing. Then another was a female Nightmare style and she just constantly used the attack to throw me into the air as soon as I got up.

The other thing is I can't block for shit, I can't even interrupt their attacks. I don't know what's wrong with it but it just doesn't work.

I'm just sick and tired of the usual Namco crap. Overpriced DLC, terrible DLC, there's always a character you can't have unless you buy them. I'm just glad they took out the whole 'Items have stats now' mess form CaS, atleast now people can put effort into their characters rather than having a mess of armour. That said thanks to the 'other' item placement I've seen a lot of stupid things.

The whole 'X character is annoying' is really just a silly argument. Once you play a lot and see what people do the characters get easy to counter. However Legendary Mode is just bullshit indeed, it's just impossible.

Damn I'm so depressed.

My only major disappointment in this game is the story mode. If any fighter was ever known for its story, its Soul Calibur, and the story was pitiful this time. At least in IV they gave us special endings for each character so we knew what was going on for them up to this in the story line. The story mode this time around excluded half the characters on the roster, most notably Ezio. I know that the guest characters' story lines have historically been 50/50 where quality is concerned, but I still want to know why the hell he's involved with the Soul swords and why he's clashing blades with a giant ax-wielding golem and possessed cheerleader with a ring-blade.
Games I'm currently taking invites for:
Killer Instinct, Halo: MCC, Titanfall, iDARB, Knight Squad, Rayman Legends, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Super Smash Bros U, Mario Kart 8

what I hate is when you think you got a ring out and the a.i. magically flies back into the ring like they have a rope pulling them back in. I also hate the damage system. It always seems your a.i. opponent does twice the damage your doing. is offline   Reply With Quote

So many characters from past games are gone. I miss Zasalamel the most.

Also, this goes for SCIV too, the custom characters only being able to use real character fighting styles, in SCIII you could get styles unique to custom characters

I suppose another thing to add to the list is the fact that Namco didn't Arcade Test this one just like 4, and it didn't turn out any better.

Damn I'm so depressed.

Meh, I guess they could've worked a little better on the story.
Or the main character more accurately for that matter.
What a horrible choice of a hero. Ezio would've been better than him.

The roster sucks

Sophitia gave birth to Justin beiber and miley cyrus
Cassandra Taki Talim are all gone
Natsu and the others are all worse
that the original characters
Zasalamel is immortal or gets reborn all the time
he is suddenly missing
Setsuka is missed
no arcade endings so no story for 90%
of the roster
rapheal and a missing Amy/Viola would of been a good story
z.w.e.i is stupid
Natsu is a cunt
and chiba or whatever his name is . Is just lame
harada tekken is taking the fucking piss

lets hope soul calibur 2 hd makes up for this
and a sc3hd would be good too
Love creating robots on Fallout 4

My only complaints are:
1. The cheap, cheating AI. Lazy programming does not a real challenge make.
2. The online players in general.
3. Having to go all the way back to the first menu to view progress, etc.
4. Lack of Arcade story for all the characters.
5. Three mimic characters?? FFS. We only need one; again, this feels lazy.

I honestly don't mind the replacement characters (as they're just reskins of the originals), I kind of like Kilik as the new Weapon Master, and I really don't mind most of the new ones. I even understand why they made Xiba (he's a reference to Songoku the Monkey King).

As for the complaints regarding "lack of clothing," I have exactly zero DLC packs, and I still have tons of pieces to play with (plus patterns to further customize them). I've made 32 characters with no repeated looks, and almost all of them look fantastic.
Granted, I played long enough to unlock costume pieces, so maybe that's the difference between me & the CAS complainers.

As for Harada Tekken? Screw that. I don't want the achievement THAT badly.

Huh... not sure if serious there. SC story was always boring as fuck... i played them all since the first one (but not soul edge) beside the third game i just rented once and never owned, and to be honest i always tough the story was the most boring thing possible. Everybody just run after a sword, arcade ending where not even inspired and boring too. I never cared for the story in this game at all so it was no surprise i found the story mode in 5 VERY BORING and uninspired as well.

Want a story in a fighting game... Mortal Kombat, now thats a freaking story.

Anyway personally i got SC5 for 5$ and i think i got y money's worth lol. Even at this very day, July 22nd 2015 there is STILL people playing online in the evening and with all type of skills. Being a very average at best player i can still play people and win too.

But i agree with people the offline content is very lacking, quick battle is not that fun. Some AI are very annoying to beat. But overall it was a fun fighting game, ill probably pick SC6 at release, have not done this since SC2...
