For Mindjack, The story makes no sense, is impossible to follow, and completely ridiculous. In the cutscenes they "discover" things that have been obvious throughout the whole game, and the action cutscenes are just way too unbelievable. The level design is insultingly linear, the enemies are overpowered and unbalanced, you lose your guns after every level, sometimes the game can't even handle itself and crashes, etc.
The gameplay is just as bad. Picture a first person shooter. Now make the controls too difficult, make aiming a pain, make there be not enough ammo, and make the movement choppy. The main feature of the game, which is basically mind control, often makes parts of the level necessary for completion be cut off and make you restart the level, is way to hard to control, and takes to long (and you have OP enemies shooting at you during this time, so you usually die), as well as lags the game to death, figuratively.
I really could go on and on, but I think by now you understand the point.
I heard that Zasī Model is in the Game Data! At least Z.W.E.I. is MUCH better than Natsu & Co. Plus Iīve heard that SCV is somewhat like the TK3 of the Soul Series. So we can only hope for SCVI being the TK5 of Soul Calibur... (And I donīt know what Mindjack is.Is it really that Bad?)
If you play on Algol's stage, you can see one of the statues in the background holding a scythe. This basically means means that they were planning on adding Zasalamel, but got lazy and didn't. And I really hate the new replacement characters, and really want the old ones back. And above all else, I wish they actually made a story out of the story mode. That was the most poorly executed attempt at a story since Mindjack (in my opinion the wort game ever)
Sadly, Namco donīt give enough Love to the Soul-Series, either. I mean, where was Rock? Where was Taki? or Zasalamel? And what did they intended with Natsu and Patroklos? I donīt want to hope that they want us to like these two...
I KNOW! Given, SCV was obviously rushed and half-assed, but TK 6 was just an abomination to the fighting game genre. At least the combat itself was good in SCV. I rteally hope SC6 (when and if that comes out) lives up to the series expectations that wre betrayed in SCV
