Soulcalibur VI is the series’ long-awaited return to form. SCVI takes the best bits from fan favorites SCII and SCIII to create a title that’s truly incredible to play. The fighting mechanics are tight, and offer methods for new players to learn, though they’ll still get thrashed online. Two story modes also offer a lot of great single-player content, if you don’t feel like going against other players. As always, the character creator is a pleasure to use and inspires creativity even in my cold accountant heart. Fighting game fans will do themselves a disservice to pass SCVI up.
