- The long-requested online mode is probably SC4's most worthwhile endeavor.

- The online mode could use a quick-rematch option, though; postfight, the game boots you back to the matchup screen, which seems just a little clunky here in 2008. Still, this mode looks like it received a lot of thought, with options to reserve space for friends in four-player battles or invite people on your friends list into a match (in the PS3 version, anyway -- Xbox Live already has that functionality built in).

- The create-a-character mode is amazingly deep, allowing you to assemble your own bionic man, while the new manga-designed fighters add plenty of fun new looks and personalities to play.

- but considering how fun Soul Calibur 4 is after a month of nonstop play, I think it'd be hard to top what Namco's accomplished with what is unquestionably their best fighting game to date.

I threw it on my Gamefly GameQ as soon as I was able. I hope I get it now; otherwise, it won't be frickin' available for quite a while.

Wonder if it can win "Best Fighting Game of the Year"......naw Super Smash Bros. Brawls has a really good chance of winning.

It sounds solid.

I remember getting this game way back for the Dreamcast. It was great. It was the only fighting game I played until number two was released.

The Soul Calibur series is the best fighting game series ever, and I'm really looking forward to playing IV, especially since it's starring Yoda.:)

Good to see it's getting good reviews.

Should be more coming tommorow.
