X360A Review: Soul Calibur V
Written Tuesday, January 31, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
It's hard to believe that Soul Calibur V might not have been had it not been for the many requests from fans for the series' return. And so here we have it. Soul Calibur is back once again, pushing the story 17 years into the future, bringing few new fighters into the stable, all united in their fight for the eponymous cursed blade.
Three years on in the real world though, does Soul Calibur V still have what it takes to bring the pain? Is Ezio any good? Just how far can you push the character creation system? Did we actually make a fighter with an apple balanced on his head and an arrow through his skull? And what of the Critical Edge and Brave Edge moves, dammit?!
Really, just how is Soul Calibur V's steel?
