Soul Calibur 4 is a nice easy to play fighting game.
Out of this 3D fighting game series i have only ever played the 2nd one. I extremly enjoyed that game and still play it on my 360.
This one (as you probably know) has yoda as the extra charecter as well as the apprentice from the upcoming force unleashed game. Yoda as a playable charecter is not great he is actually fairly slow and his moves arent all that impressive which is a bit of a let down considering the hype, The apprentice i have not unlocked at the time of writing i have faced him in arcade mode and he seemed to be very good.
There isnt really much to say about the gameplay - it's a fighting game pretty much learn some moves if you want but it really isn't needed.
Graphics - They are really stunning, from charecter design to stage backgrounds the detail is well thought and done well.
The costumes themselves though have really gone a step to far this time in my opinion, They were always a little (how shall i say it) 'revealing' in the previous games but this time it is actually embarrasing i mean for god sakes but a bra on or something!
The charecter Customizing is really good - i have made a awsome bulky dude but given him agile moves but i think it works well. The only hard part of it is the skills section but with a little studying it pulls it of well.
Overall then - Get this game flawed at it is, it is really good 5 stars all the way, graphics, customization, gameplay and the online modes all really work well and is a great game to play.
P.S The faceplate you get looks good and all
