== SOULCALIBUR IV == Soulcalibur IV is a fighting game and is actually the fifth installment in the Soulcalibur franchise. The Soulcalibur games have in my opinion taken over as the best fighting game ever. It offers something different and its quite addictive. Also it has a lot of different game modes and most fighting games only have a couple. Soulcalibur IV is available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 and each version features the usual cast of characters and also bonus characters from the Star Wars games. The game was developed by Project Soul and also published by NAMCO. Soulcalibur is different in many ways. Its one of the only fighting games that features usable ... Read the complete review

The soul of this game burns brightly. STORY -- A tale of swords and souls eternally retold. I've heard that phrase too many times. Some guy has the power of the two cursed swords: Soul Calibur (the good one) and Soul Edge (the evil one). The warriors want the swords for their own reasons. Power, greed, honour, you get the idea. That's the summary, apart from the guy's son being dead for some reason. It's a fighting game so it's not overly important. GRAPHICS -- Namco has done it again: they've made an visually impressive Soul Calibur game for the systems intended for. IV has imaginative and well detailed characters and have built a whole bunch of ... Read the complete review

There isn't going to be many opportunities for me to beat the living daylights out of somebody, not that I'd condone it, however through this game I have discovered that I have a bit of a vicous streak in me. This is good and bad. Firstly it means that if I'm angry with somebody I can vent my frustrations out on my opponents. The bad thing is that I get a right yelling at from my brother, saying that I'm going to break his x-box controller. (Pressing random buttons at a very fast pace is my best tactic!) The majority of the characters you see in this game I am certain have been in some of the other Soul Caliburs'. Although a few of these you are ... Read the complete review

This is a great fighting game that has great feature for one player or two player. The Soul Calibur games basically reveolve around the power of the players sword, each player has different swords and attacks and some players have very impressive special attacks. In one player mode you can either play arcade mode which is basically seeing how many peoples ass you can kick in battles without dieing or free style mode which means you are not fighting anyone and you are just perfecting you technique and attacks, you can also play in story mode which means you beat all the other characters to find out the story of your player sword and the new mode ...

I waited months and months to buy this game as Soul Calibur III was a legendary game which for me tops Tekken any day but I have to say though it is a great fighting game Soul Calibur IV has not done quite enough to recieve the full 5 stars. In terms of graphics the game is superb, way above Soul Calibur III. Charcters have immense detail and look more anime, the old favourites are still in the game plus plenty of great new charcters. The stages are beautiful and as before sometimes part of the stage needs to be destroyed before you can pull off a ring out. Cut scenes are also fantastic. I don't pay much attention to sound but each stage has its own ... Read the complete review
