[b]Post edit pre-edit:[/b] I was just thinking, "I hope Maou likes this!" since you always speak fondly of the SCII days and not so fondly of the sequels. I'm not into SC enough to pinpoint what I don't like about 3 and 4, but somehow I agree. [b]I'll paste what I said before:[/b] In case any of you are on the line about Soul Calibur V, it might be worth mentioning that the story mode is told with tons and tons of storyboard-esque illustrations. Kind of reminds me of Yasuhiko Yoshikazu's Joan d'Arc manga. I don't know if this is a selling point for everyone, but if I had known this beforehand, I wouldn't bought the game with triple the enthusiasm (my initial enthusiasm was admittedly fairly low). The soundtrack is also extremely impressive and I haven't liked a Soul soundtrack since Khan Super Session. It's a shame that the LE comes with a "Best of" CD rather than the V soundtrack. My time spent with the game is limited, and although I've bought all the main games, I wouldn't consider myself qualified as a Soul Calibur fan...but at this point...I would certainly consider it the best in the series and the only one I haven't felt sour about since II. I'm not sure how much that really counts for, but I'm pleasantly surprised for sure. [b]Added:[/b] Patroklos has one of the best renders I've seen in any game. His facial expressions are really impressive. You hardly notice them in the fight itself, but when you watch the replays, you notice little things, like his eyebrows moving at just the right second, or teeth clenching or whatever. I haven't spent enough time with the game to notice faces from everyone, but it adds a nice touch of drama to the fights. Some of the characters don't match their artwork very well, though. I think Ishmael mentioned this a while back, but Siegfried is kind of stupid looking. Zwei's face isn't right, but his back muscles look amazing, so I guess that's something.
