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.

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

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

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.
