Soulcalibur V is not your standard sequel. The emphasis of the developer was squarely placed on making combat faster and more accesible. The single player content is bare bones at best. Online content however is greatly overhauled. The learning curve before was very steep making the series intimidating to newcomers. The new additions and tweaks made to the combat engine make battles more dynamic with momentum going back and forth. I recommend this game to anyone interested in a fighting game with a deep combat system to sink their teeth into.
