[QUOTE] Out of curiosity, other than Soul of Devil Jin, is there any way to add customization of style to any of the create a soul characters? As I've mentioned before, I tend to view this mode as a glorified 'dress the doll' kind of thing, since a female character with blue hair wearing a cowboy hat and jester suit that plays like Siegfried is still just Siegfried, as far as I'm concerned. Not that I find anything wrong with it, in principle, I just never got why 4 gave the player a choice between 'customize Mitsurugi' and 'Create a Soul' using Mitsurugi's style. It would be great if they threw in extra styles to give this mode a little more purpose. [/QUOTE] There aren't any other "extra" styles, but your characters do change a bit depending on their size. Smaller characters are stronger because they have less range. I don't know how much difference it really makes, but it's an interesting idea. Although I'm extremely pleased with the way they executed story mode, the overall lack of story content will probably be a big disappointment to a lot of players. The game obviously shipped before it was finished. It seems the only way to find out the scenarios for half of the characters is to get the LE artbook, which is more of a story guide with a few pictures. It's pretty clear that some characters were omitted as well...or at least clumped into mimic territory. Although I'd rather see a butchered release than no release at all, this is an upsetting trend. I still have a positive impression of the game (that a lot of people share), but there's a sad sense of "we'll never get to play the SCV that should've been." It sounds like I'm recommending, then un-recommending the game, huh? Despite the holes, it still looks sounds and plays better than anything else in the series, so that counts for something. [QUOTE]The instant kill moves aside in SC4, I don't actually know what the gameplay issues of 4 were simply because I was so far removed from SC1 and SC2 and had never played either very deeply to feel that SC4 was much worse than either. If anybody could explain it to me that'd be great.[/QUOTE] I'm almost in the same boat, as I'm not a SC expert, but SC4 just rubbed me the wrong way. I played it, but in the end, I didn't feel [i]good[/i] playing it. SC3 was even worse. I haven't felt good playing a SC game since 2. I feel great playing SCV...or at least I will until the bitterness over it's incompleteness sets in. Again, my opinion doesn't count for much as far as recommending or not recommending the game, but a lot of SC fans seem to share it, for whatever reason.
