All About ziklina
7Aug 12Alright, so the new Soul Calibur came out, the fifth one, and it got, like, a 7.5 on this site. HARSH!!!! Yeah, it lacks offline games modes, some characters were taken off, the story mode is too short, but COME ON!! It's still one of the most fun games EVER! I mean, if you really want to take it this far and keep the old characters, go play soul calibur 3 on your playstation. What i LOVE about this is the new, fresh characters. Hello! this is 17 years after soul calibur 4! Talim is like, 32! Zasalamel, (we've had ENOUGH of him. what else do we want to know about his attempts to stopping his immortality??) Yun Seong and Seong Mina, yeah they were cool, but they didn't have much of a story. Now i WAS kinda annoyed Cassandra wasn't in there but we get a replacement even BETTER. Patroklos Alexander. OMG i am practically IN LOVE with him. His fighting style is A LOT faster and easier for newcomers AND older players. His personality is almost exactly like Cassandra's. Bold and aggressive, but loving and sweet as well. and both are loving and caring for their older sisters. (see how they're both EXACTLY the same??)
Speaking of older sisters, there's another replacement to Sophitia. Pyrrha. Yeah, she may be a LITTLE too whiny and too much "I'M SORRY!!!!" type, but she's sweet and meek, and anyway, we get an aggressive and meaner version of her when she transforms to Pyrrha Omega. Pyrrha's fighting style is a weaker version of Sophitia's, but her Pyrrha Omega style is a lot more like sophitia's.
I heard a LOT of complaints about Patroklos and his newer style when he becomes "stronger". Alpha Patroklos. Okay, his style replaced Setsuka's. She's a really good character, but honestly, i didn't like her style as much. And alpha patroklo's style was not better. i liked his older style BETTER! I heard lots of people upset and saying they HATED patroklos cuz he replaced setsuka. i hate you all. Patroklos is like, my BEST fighter. And he's darn cool. Yuri lowenthal (voice actor for pat) did an AMAZING job voicing The newer characters may have been replaced with the older ones, but you know, this WAS taken place after 17 years. Taki will be like, 40 or 50! and we've got natsu who's even better! she's got a personality! Most of the characters would be too old to be the fighters you used to fight with, that's why Namco took out those characters.
I was kinda annoyed by the story mode cutscenes. like, 75% of the entire thing was sketch scenes. i HATED that, and they weren't even in color! why couldn't they make more cutscenes into the great animated versions? i could name like, 10 scenes in story mode that shouldn't have been in sketch.-.-
I liked the new characters Z.W.E.I and Viola, they had a very mysterious look to them. And the asians were by far ADORABLE! Xiba was my favorite with his obsession to food. But the guest characters were REALLY cool this time. I mean, in soul calibur 4, yoda was too little to fight and the apprentice was so darn hard, i could never pass him. but these characters like ezio auditore and the devil jin style, were AWESOME! we don't see styles like devil jin and ezio much in soul calibur, this added a modern touch to it. i mean, devin jin had LASER EYES!!! and ezio had blades on his hands.
The DLC character i WISHED wasn't DLC was Dampierre. i LOVE him. He's the type of character you NEVER see in SC series. he's got hidden blades in this hands and his critical finish is where he slides in between your legs and kicks your butt! The edge masters were quite cool, edge master was HILARIOUS when doing leixia's critical finish, and he's just too awesome. I was really happy to find out that kilik was in the game, but surprised he was an edge master,too. he looks really weird when doing lizardman's moves or other styles. then we have elysium. a copy of sophitia's look, but not personality. she's a really cool "malfested with the good" type character. she's also an edge master, but only for girls. The things i was AMAZED by were by far
OMG i listen to the soul calibur 5 music EVERY DAY. they composed the music so well, you could listen to is on your ipod. i find the music entirely impressive. written by the 18 year old prodigy Tomoki Miyoshi,Inon Zur, Cris Velasco,and Andrew Aversa, (and others i forgot to name) these guys made a TOTALLY impressive move to writing the music. their music really livens up the battles much better than soul calibur 4, which lacked a lot in music.
2. the characters
i really was floored by the cool, new characters they made up. i mean, the asian's were ADORABLE, the europeans were so awesome, they made a great choice choosing ezio and devil jin, and patroklos and pyrrha, well, they were by far my favorites of the game
namco did an AMAZING job animating for these characters and game modes. the scenery for the games and the characters are just fantastic.
yeah, so maybe there weren't as many offline game modes, the story was too short, some characters were taken out (but for good reasons) and the story mode cutscenes were too sketchy, but it was STILL an AMAZING game. i think that gamespot was being a little too harsh in rating this game. if i were rating it, i would give it a 8.5-9! the music, new characters, and story (i almost cried at the end) were all AMAZING! This game is for those who want something new, but still want to hold on to SOME older stuff. I would TOTALLY recommend this game. and i wanted to say a BILLION more things about this game, but i'm kinda tired comment and like!
