I gave it a rent and I would not buy it. The game itself is so-so. Nothing at all like Soul Caliber, although no offense to the person above who would dare soil Soul Caliber's good name with such a comparison.
Each character does have a couple special moves but other than that it's a bit of a button masher. (Yeah ok, some people button mash Soul Caliber) Anyway, it's a little dull. Select a mission and there's a little cut scene. Beat down a bunch of stuff and all of a sudden the mission is complete and you select a new one. The problem with this is the missions are really short
. I mean like a couple/few minutes on some early levels. Than you have to wait for loading, saving and all that.
I'm not sure why they didn't do save points or something as that is essentially what they are forcing you to do anyway. (Although Save points wouldn't have the load/saves times that this does) Definitely rent this before you buy/unwrap it. Not a good game IMO. 5.5/10 (Although I did not bother completing the game)
Edit: forgot to mention that I did not play any coop. Also the destructible environments were cool... but almost too much. Try it and see.
