I've already got Soul Caliburs 2 and 4, and from what I've seen of the 5th installment, it seems similar, if not exactly the same, as Soul Calibur 4, just with Ezio included.

But what's your opinion of it?

I suppose the same reason that I am not really interested in upgrading, is also the same reason why I never bought any of the altered versions of Street Fighter 4 after it came out, as in, it had no substantial changes after the first version, that only a few new fighters were introduced, and that Seth was still a cheap a**hole in the game!

I guess, I just don't see the point in paying full retail price for something that is basically a DLC pack.

I feel the same way. Looks like Namco took a page out of the Call of Duty handbook for this latest installment.

1. Copy 2. Paste 3. ????? 4. PROFIT!

That statement is silly. Almost all sequels are like this.

I had typed up a long rant about SCV but then I realised there was no use in trying to persuade you. If you think the changes between fighting game installments and/or re-releases are so minute or insignificant, then no, you probably shouldn't buy this game.

It has a pretty nice custom character tool, shame it's wasted on a fighting game where you will be glued to a 5 x 5 foot block.

I have been wondering about this to. Having owned SC2/3/4 i have to say after playing 4 the major thing for me was the fact i really missed 2/3 single player (so mush better than 4's) and their extra Weapon Master Mode and Chronicles of the Sword mode. These added so much to the game. Also while i like how the character creator has gotten better, i miss the unique styles that weren't in 4. Those of you have played 5 of all soul games which one is it closer to playing like?

Nope.

But statements like "Looks like _____ took a page out of the Call of Duty handbook for this latest installment." are kinda silly. It's a really terrible way to compare games. It's like me saying, I'm not too sure if I should pick up Halo: Reach, gameplay loos identical to previous Halo games. I guess that is why I was never interested in ODST. It was just like 3. It should have been released as DLC.

This is a sequel, not a release or rebalanced game like SSFIV and AE. If you don't know what differences in those titles are then you probably shouldn't be bashing them. Sure these updates could have been released as patches or DLC, but from a business standpoint, those options would have been pretty impractical.
