SoulCalibur VI Review Summary

MightyCritic Consensus

Viscerally Satisfying Combat

Roster and Character Creator

Style and Soul

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.

Critic Reviews for SoulCalibur VI

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.

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.

The single-player offerings lean a little too heavily on lots of reading between bouts, but the way Libra of Soul implements the actual combat stands out among fighting game campaigns

The sixth entry in Bandai Namco's weapons-based fighting series makes a strong return.

I still remember sitting down for the first time to play Soulcalibur on the Dreamcast and hearing Jeff Manning's voice echo across the room. This is a larger-than-life series that deserves a lot of love and care from its creator: and with VI, it got it. The recent documentary that openly acknowledges the past faults of the series gives me hope that Bandai Namco is going to right the Soulcalibur ship.
