You are right. This is a huge downgrade.
3 was the best, it had the shops, the campaign, good multiplayer, introduced create a character and had so many characters and in game lore it was better than many rpgs!
But since then it has plummeted in value.
I won't pay $60 for an online fighter.
I want my full SC experience!

I love Soul Calibur.
I hate Soul Calibur V.
The story mode was beyond terrible, it was painful to play through, it was so boring.
Who thought it was a good idea to tell the story through unmoving sketches? And Patroklos, Pyrra and Zwei? Dull. I miss the old days when you could take each character through story mode, even IV had that!
And in my opinion, III had the best campaign and best new roster.

Speaking of rosters, V's is stupid. They threw out so many favorites and added in three mimics and copies of old characters.
Besides Ezio, only Zwei and Viola were really new.
No Zasalamel or Rock? Pathetic.
Create a character is also overrated in this one. It actually has less options regarding clothes, and though you can finally change body size, it is limited.
And why can't they get new face models?

I traded it right back in.
Maybe after enough dlc is released to make it a complete game comes out or a price drop or a decent Vita version comes out...maybe then I'll buy it again.

@Slugga,

You said it was "essential" for SCV to have story mode. Quite simply, it isn't. A story mode is great to have but it it not essential to any fighting game. That is what your comment states & i'm going to shoot it down the way i read it. If i am tearing this out of context, by all means let me know, but i dont think i am.

I cannot believe i am repeating myself here, when you talk of building character fanbase, do you think fan fave characters from various fighting games such as Kasumi & Ayane from DOA or Akira from VF earn their popular fanbase because of story? Even though VF doesn't even have a story mode altogether? No, what makes him popular is his moveset & how accessible he is to players, appearance also helps too.

Story modes in fighting games have hardly ever been good & most likely never will be, why people are still trying to convince themselves that a story mode would make or break a fighting game or lessen it's appeal is beyond me.

I personally don't think World & Slugga are big on fighting games if they think story mode plays a major role in their buying decision. As i said, it's cute to have butlike any story mode in a fighting game, you will beat it briefly, move on & enjoy the core of the game. The fighting.

@Underdog,

"I don't really care for many fighting games"

Yeah....

Moving on.

For the record, noone is pretending story mode isn't important, the issue here is people think it's essential these days all of a sudden for a fighting game to have a good story for it to be a success when most fighting games that have ever been released have almost never ever had a decent story but have still sold well & won over fans. Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution ring a bell? Storyless & argueably one of the greatest rated fighting games released. Why? The gameplay, friends, the gameplay.

No Ezio isn't as imbalanced as The Apprentice.

Maybe you should try playing the game instead making assumptions because your feelings are crushed?

Give the game a rent, if you don't like it, cool, that is your opinion. But don't rub your butt hurt all over the comments page because you feel a little gutted over the loss of some veterans. Deal with it, try out some of the new characters & expand your skills with other characters instead of focusing on one or two.

Playing a game & not liking it is one thing, not playing a game & trying to cherry pick flaws for the sake of hating on something borders on pathetic.

Kevin, there are these things called question marks at the end of my sentences. See them? That means I was asking about it, not making an assumption about it. Perhaps you are the one making the assumptions?
