Why is this game so much harder than SCIV?

I mean, this time around, the A.I. is as brutal as they are cheap. It's like Tekken with all of the juggling happening. I liked Soul Calibur IV much better. It was more fun and not as hard. Also, character creation was a bit better.

And I'm not sure if this is me being a noob or what, but this game's combos seem a lot harder to do too.

Don't panic. You didn't suddenly suck. They just seriously increased the difficulty for the game.

Don't be afraid to "Retry on a lower difficulty" if you're getting pasted. It's not going to rob you of any achievements EXCEPT for Defeat Arcade on Hard.

The game is supposed to last you longer than a weekend, so don't be put off if you fail to 'pwn' every enemy like a set of car keys.

All that's getting you smacked right now is simply getting to grips with the game.

In "Quick Battle Mode" you can select "Beginner" level opponents and while you're learing the ropes with a new character or re-familiarising yourself with one you know and love that's not a bad thing.

You're only going to get better and when you do you're going to appreciate the fact that the AI can give you a run for your money a few months down the line.

I like this game more than IV so far but the difficulty spike is rather insane

This game is pretty hard, I had to set it on easy for first level :P (Don't know if that's a good or bad thing)

I don't feel much trouble play a "new" game

Story is easy as hell until 18 - new character so need some training
Arcada std: ~7:30 picked by nightmare once, still not a problem

Because it is a "new" game,
So we should expect thing is not the same

Or else you should ask project soul to make a DLC for SCIV

I love it how you'll beat the AI in 2 rounds and all of a sudden it turns into berserk mode, OH YEAH YOU BEAT ME 2 TIMES? I'M GOING BERSERK MODE ON YOUR FUCKING ASS!!!!!!!!! It's a freaking pain in the ass. I'll try legendary souls but I am not looking forward to it AT ALL!

at first I found the bots more difficult, but you'll eventually pick up on all their tricks :~D still have yet to give Legendary Souls a spin though lol

one thing I did notice, its IMPOSSIBLE to grab higher difficulty bots now :<

Sometimes the AI can be a pain, I mean they can interpret what you're going to do. Legendary Souls is also a little bit ridiculous. Ah well, looks like practice mode will be more useful this time round.

nothing in game was too hard, i even beat arcade on hard without using the "hilde" method in about 11 min... then i went to legendary arcade mode and tried to beat kilik and i dont think ive ever raged this hard in my life, i wish kilik was real so i could put a fucking gun to his head and end him.. i cant tell you the amount of times i'd go up 2-0 (although he mostly just shuts me out) then he goes ape shit crazy and ruins me for the rest of the match

You'd get 2-0? That's fucking crazy.. From the start, he goes batshit crazy and combos me to death or knocks me off the edge. I've had to at least faced him 15 times and I've only won 2-3 rounds. One time, he flipped off the edge. If I was like how I was 5-6 years ago, I'd probably break everything in sight because of how hard I rage at this fight. I don't even want to attempt it anymore. All I want is the achievement..

Legendary Souls aswell as the A/B Ranks for quickmatch are cheating like crazy.
If you just want the achievement abuse Natsus 6 B+K B B B and throw in some random brave edge for the achievement.
Got the achievement on my 2nd try in "Stage" 2 after accidently killing Kilig in round 3 (after 2 perfects round 1 & 2).

All I wish is that they would allow you to change the rounds to just 1 fight, like in SCIV. That way if you are a noob and are lucky enough to win, you can move on.

I think that SCV may be designed to appeal more to the hardcore fighting fans, what with the focus more on the online vs and lack of statistic system that SCIV had. In short, it focuses more on raw skill, which hardcore fighting gamers like.

I guess.

I might be crazy.
