Extreme Gamer - Soul Calibur IV (Xbox 3. PS3) Review. Soul Calibur makes the leap to the next- gen consoles in its fourth alliteration of the popular fighting franchise.
Like Soul Calibur II the elitists in Soul Calibur IV will be tested against an unstoppable force from a galaxy far, far away. I’m talking about Star War’s premiere characters Yoda, Darth Vader, and the Apprentice from the upcoming action game .
Fighting games don’t come around too often anymore. So when we see the glimmer of hope of a new version of an old classic, it is easy to become overjoyed with fond memories of when the fighting games ruled the arcade. Namco Bandai’s Soul Calibur IV has taken some time to make its debut on current gaming platforms, but like they say 'all good things come for those who wait', well Soul Calibur IV was definitely worth the wait. In many ways, Soul Calibur IV reminds me more of Soul Calibur II then its last release on the PS2. The main reason would be its console exclusive characters from outside of the Soul Calibur universe. In 2. 00. 3 it was Spawn (Xbox), Link (Gamecube) and Tekken’s Heihachi Mishima (PS2).
Now the platforms numbers have shrunk by one and we see George Lucas freely licensing three characters from the Star Wars Universe. Soul Calibur IV follows in the traditional path of . For the most part Soul Calibur IV feels and plays like a Soul Calibur game, although some veteran gamers might disagree with some choices developer Project Soul has made. Despite a few minor nitpicks you can’t go wrong with Soul Calibur IV if you have been a long time fan of Soul Calibur’s fantasy fighting realm. New gamers to the franchise will probably accept Soul Calibur IV with open arms.
Really, no other fighting games does weapon- based combat quite as good as Soul Calibur, certainly not at this level of perfection. In other games like Virtua Fighter and even Dead or Alive you can learn the game and remain at a steady performance level; however in Soul Calibur you can be a master and still loose matches in unthinkable ways to the most unlikely candidates. In the fourth edition of Soul Calibur it seems that Namco Bandai has upped the game by adding more variables like destructible armour, more characters and the new critical finishers. Even if you mastered Soul Calibur II doesn’t mean you will pull ahead like before.
Wearing down your enemy and picking the right time to attack and defend has never been more opponent as Soul Calibur IV blazes down with lighting fast attacks and powerful smashing blows. Besides sitting around with friends you can finally test your skills online. The online aspect of Soul Calibur is fairly straightforward to get into and doesn’t have too many moments of lag. I had a few matches that started to get bogged down online, however it was never anything more then other games that have their momentary slow spots.
Doing battle in ranked or unranked matches is a lot of fun to see how other gamers use certain characters, and to equally find out what mad skills are out there. For the familiar you can go through the game in eight rounds in the arcade mode, or try your hand at the five levels in the games story mode. In the story mode each character has their own cinematic ending that is worth the ten minute wait through the action.
I’m glad to see that each character has a unique ending and perspective explored in the end cinematic; it definitely makes the lore of Soul Calibur more interesting and confusingly strange. The only problem in this years story mode is that is its rather short and it reuses the same cut- scenes as you progress through the story. It would have been nice to see a little more development put into the roster in Soul Calibur IV, it’s too bad this common trend in fighting games is continuing still into 2.
First you will fight up the tower against themed enemies and some of the best level designs in the game. In total you will be looking at 6. Floors that will challenge the most proficient gamers who dare to climb the towers steps. In ever edition of Soul Calibur we see a number of new entries into the series. From Soul Edge (1. Soul Calibur II (2.
In Soul Calibur III (2. Finally Soul Calibur IV (2. Star Wars guests bringing the total 3. The list doesn’t stop there because Soul Calibur IV has the character creator which debuted in the previous Soul Calibur game bring the list upwards toward the hundred mark. On the Xbox 3. 60 you can save up to 5.
That is 5. 0 in total which combines new characters, or edits on existing characters. One character that immediately stood out was the pikestaff wielding Hilde. This beautiful pouty lipped red head is a versatile fighter that can jump between ranged and close range attacks with ease. I guess you can say she is the melding point between those two. Some other fresh faces in Soul Calibur IV look like the merger of good and evil with Algol, who is the main antagonist in Soul Calibur IV. Algol is also the man that holds both Soul Calibur weapons, the Soul Edge and the Soul Calibur itself.
There are also five characters created by guest artists from Japan. These characters are by far the most original in the game although the cool artistic flair doesn’t always translate into gameplay. The featured characters start with the alien force Angol Fear designed by Mine Yoshizaki, the mechanical geared character Ashlotte designed by Oh! Great, elf inspired Scheherazade designed by Yutaka Izubuchi, Kimono wearing Kamikirimusi designed by Hirokazu Hisayuki and the busty cowgirl Shura designed by Hiroya Oku. Darth Vader exclusive to the PS3 is the most balanced and fitting character out of the bunch with a strong amount of attacks and a good defense.
Change Darth’s name and you’d think he was another creation from Namco Bandai. Yoda on the other hand is unmistakable and a true original to the series. The thing with Yoda is his height which works to his advantage 9.
Since Yoda marks in at 2”2 he is able to stand still while swords fly over his head and while his opponents try and pick him up for some brutal Yoda bashing. This doesn’t mean Yoda is an unstoppable character, he is just an overly unique addition that really doesn’t fit the games image or playing style, maybe Obi One or Luke should have stepped up in his place. The third addition is the Apprentice from the upcoming Lucas. Arts title Forced Unleashed. In Soul Calibur, the Apprentice (who is Darth’s apprentice) is a strong competitor to go against who has some powerful moves that can be “unleashed” Even though the Apprentice feels a little too powerful the seems to fit the game a little better than both Darth and Yoda because of his human appearance. Hopefully the rumors of Yoda and Darth jumping ship to the other platforms via downloadable content is true because even though Soul Calibur IV has Star Wars Jedi’s, it really sucks that we can have a showdown between the two iconic characters.
Debuted in Soul Calibur III the create- a- soul mode allows you to make your own fighter. This includes dressing them up, picking their fighting style, and outfitting with a wide assortment of deadly weapons. The CAS mode is open from the start of the game so you make all your CAS wishes come true at any time, along with creating your own fighters you can also edit the main roster of the game which makes for some interesting creations. New items are collected during your travels up and down the tower of Lost Souls, or through normal play of the games storyline.
This includes everything from new clothing pieces including new underwear items, assorted footwear, dresses and more to new weapons that range from the powerful Soul Calibur weapons to the insane ridiculous power of a rubber mallet or a hula hoop. Unlocking items can be highly addictive and a lot of fun if you enjoy the “dress up” aspect of Soul Calibur. How this works is by giving a certain amount of space to allocate skills to each character. The amount of skill space is determined by the player’s weapon and outfit. Changing this around can greatly benefit any playing style allowing you to fine tune each warrior. The skills are divided into 5 categories being Power, Impact, Boost, Gauge and Special. Upgrading your abilities simply come from playing the game with each character.
Each character has their own style level starting at level one building upwards from there. For an example of the skills you can use come in the form of auto countering, auto unlockable attacks, auto impacts, impact healing, gauge recovery, soul boost, nullify ring outs and lots more. It’s fun to play around with the skills in the game and once you find your weakness its good to build a strong defense using the skills earned. A few more options would have been greatly welcomed like a team vs. It’s fun to jump into a quick match or two; however Soul Calibur IV promotes the use of online battling against the more traditional road actually hanging out in person with a few buddies knocking out a few rounds. Another downside in Soul Calibur IV was how easy it was to unlock, or purchase new characters. From the starting of the game you can basically beat the story mode twice to earn enough credits to unlock the rest of the cast.
This makes the accomplishment of having a full roster feel underwhelming and not important. I liked how the previous Soul Calibur games made you work for a full roster.
These range from some easy to grab numbers like clearing story mode on Normal (Pursuer of the Secret) and Hard (Mystery of the Swords) difficulty, landing an attack on a taunting opponent (Iron Hammer) and performing 1. Swift Strike). Up for more of a challenge try descending 2. Tower of the Lost Souls (Never Ending Advance) or grabbing over 3. Legendary Hidden Treasures). Soul Calibur IV’s online game is reflected in the achievements with a few achievements to be had by defeating different fighting styles online (World Class Fighter) and winning ten times online (Unknown Swordsman) or simply fighting 1. Engraved into History).
