EGM’s TAKE: The whole thing just screams desperation for the first 30 seconds, as real people are shown dressing up as their favorite characters from the series, kind of like a really bad cosplay convention. However, things pick up once the in-game footage starts to play, showing some top-notch fighting between a few of the game’s roster. Soul Calibur V looks like it’s ready to stake its claim to the top of the fighting genre, with beautiful graphics, a host of colorful characters and a fluid fighting system, there isn’t much that can possibly stop it. Personally I tend to steer clear of beat ’em ups, but Soul Calibur has completely changed my opinion and I’m really excited to get my hands on it.
