SoulCalibur VI Reviews Summary

Viscerally Satisfying Combat
Roster and Character Creator
Style and Soul

Summary: SoulCalibur VI is a return to form for the series. A few nagging issues and a "love it or hate it" campaign mode don't take away from the game's solid and accessible fighting mechanics.

The soul of Soulcalibur 6 is so strong that a few minor issues don't do much to bring down one of the best entries in the series.

Snappy and responsive weapon-based fighting let down by a boring new story mode and loading issues.

A fighter with a great roster and exciting brawls, let down by an undercooked singleplayer component.

The best SoulCalibur VI of recent generations, with an accessible but tactically deep combat system. But while the single-player options are much improved they're still far from perfect.
