Change for the sake of change is why we got SCV. You change too much and you change the game's identity and what people like about it. This has super meters, soul charge and reversal edge as well as changing move sets some and balancing the game around all of that vs older SC. Changes I can live with because the core gameplay is there, and is awesome as it ever was and maybe even a little better, with a new skin, new levels, new story.People rating games low because not enough changed in their opinion are totally missing the point of making a new installment. The new Dragon Quest for example got some low reviews from some people for reasons like that, but it's one of the most successful RPGs of all time, and bigger in Japan than even FF games. And their core fighting has NEVER changed since the first one. Ya'll are wack. Sometimes a formula works very well, and for new iterations only minor tweaks would make it better.

Woooo boy. I wanted to like this one because I had good memories of Soul Calibur 6 but man oh man did this one disappoint.Wanna seeWoooo boy. I wanted to like this one because I had good memories of Soul Calibur 6 but man oh man did this one disappoint.Wanna see everybody spam rock-paper-scissors QTEs repeatedly ad infinitum? Wanna see the same characters of Groh and Nightmare over and over again in matches? Wanna see the flow of combat grind to a complete halt everytime someone does a "flashy" move and everything stops so it can look like a movie? The base mechanics itself are okayish (but not balanced) but instead of making it better they just tacked on a bunch of "bling" to make it look good but really bring down the gameplay.The main story mode is laughable and is only a retread of the original Soul Calibur. Sorry, but in the age of Injustice, Smash, and Guilty Gear, half-assed doesn't cut it anymore. Like really? Texts and terrible artwork for the majority of your cutscenes? And the main plot was Zzzzzzzzz boring with repeated cheesy but not funny lines and it barely incorporates the cast. Sure there's "side stories" but those were pretty mediocre as well. Why have us fighting mooks that don't even appear in the game? This is a fighting game, your plot should have reason for these characters to meet and duke it out more.You'd think that character creation and the "Libra of Souls" mode would pick up alot of the slack here, but it doesn't. Don't get me wrong, it's fun to create and mess around with custom characters, but the mode that goes along with it is just boring. Everything again here is told through texts and portraits and you only get the meager offering of freedom with a good/evil character choice system and "exploration" that you have to pay money to even go to side missions. Just be sure to do that when the main campaign's path is near them because you can get ambushed by significantly higher leveled AI that will waste your money if you lose.All in all, SC6 is a let down and in this hypercompetitive fighting game market, you can do far better.

And here I am writing a review, scoring it above what I planed to seeing as some people scored it way to low, one even saying it uses the sameAnd here I am writing a review, scoring it above what I planed to seeing as some people scored it way to low, one even saying it uses the same engine as SCIV, little did I know that SCIV used unreal engine 4, well riddle me silly (sarcasm).This game is somewhere around 8 or 9 to be honest, with a few things dragging it down, so let me jump right into it.The good.The most important thing, that being the combat, is great, that part is a clear 10 out of 10. It feels responsive and it is easy to get into with a dept there that will be fun to explore.The character customization is good, would have likes some more pieces of cloths but all in all it is better then Tekken 7 in this department.The Libra of souls has this far been way more fun then I thought it would be.Hit or missThe visuals can be good or bad depending if you like the art-style or not, personally I do like it but I can see some people not liking it.The bad.The way in which the story is presented feels cheap, Don't get me wrong here, I do enjoy stories told to still pictures as well, just that they could have had more pictures while showing the story. Often you are shown the same old picture with a picture of a character and some enemy. This is the weakest part of the game.The day one dlc. The character in that dlc fits better into the story then some of the character in the base roster. This easily avoided PR mess up is something they need to learn fromI get the feeling that Namco gave the devs very little money for this project, and as such they needed to focus on some things, thankfully they focused on the right thing. It is not a perfect game but it is at this moment the best 3D fighter on the current gen consoles.
