Playing Street Fighter IV, I thought i was going to forget about Soul Calibur for a minute, but I still popping it back in the PS3 The last capcom game i was heavy into was Capcom Vs Snk 2. This in comparison just seems unbalanced as hell. The gameplay is slow. People that have to charge their moves (Guile, M. Bison) have a horrible disadvantage from the Shadoken motion players. The combo system just seems a bit limited, still seeing the old jump kick and low sweep makes me go enhhh... Soul Calibur's fighting system has way more complexities and freedom of chaining attacks. Way more variety and the whole fighting system just feels right. A Kilik is way different from a Maxi is way different from a Yoshimitsu. The amount of different throws, attacks (down back and punch is different from downforward and punch) just gives this way more replay value. The only thing that is better with SF IV is the online gameplay. The Soul Calibur lags like crazy at times. PS3 game tag is Mesaisah by the way.
