Soulcalibur 4 IS EPIC

Really good fighting game, you can create your own character and there is no blood,Just punching and kicking and cutting people with swords.some bad words but one character named ivy is wearing an outfit that exposes part of her breasts and you can see her underwear. most of the female characters are wearing outfits that show partial nude. It is a really graphic game, too.

The only reason this is rated "T" is because of clothing

This game is a game and a story(All five games have the ongoing story of Soul Edge, and Soul Calibur) Clothing Issue The game has that racy look on girls. As you can see one girls butt, and most of her chest. Another girl's underwear is see able. And the last one I will say is one of her stances/poses for when she wins: Her chest moves to the side kind of shaking until you click rematch or Select Character Gameplay The Gameplay is seen from a side view of the characters fighting. Each character is unique with their own set of moves(Staff to claws). Overall Good game, but with flaws

Overall appropiate, except for the skimpy clothing on women characters. If it werent for partial nudity and sexual content, this game would be rated E10+. Skimpy clothing on women charactrers shouldnt be too bad for 13 and up, and if you are not one of those phsycho super protective parents, you should allow your 13 and 14 year olds to stare at Ivy's boobs and buttocks and edit her clothing to show more. Come on, their animated! But their still attractive.........

Fine for everybody

The only reason this game is rated T because there is partial nudity. Who cares? This game is epic.

Cool game, not so cool outfits

It really is a good game. There is no blood even though you use swords and stuff. The only downside is the skimpy outfits, I mean is that really necessary?

good for more mature audience.... 17+

great awesome arcade game.... but has inappropriate content such as partial nudity, lots of violence, and mild language. The biggest concern is nudy and sexual content. basically half of the playable women are half nude, or wearing skimpy outfits. there is one character that barely wears anything.... which is WAY inappropriate for kids or even teens...

Good game...but parents may worry about some content.

The only real concern about this game is that the female characters can be in skimpy clothing. And fanboys may be tempted to remove all their equipment (including clothing) in the Character Creator. Thankfully, there's swimsuits which cannot be removed. However, if parents don't want their child exposed to girls in swimsuits (except if their child is a girl), don't buy this game and wait until you feel this game is appropriate. But by then, it won't be made anymore, so just buy it now, and play it with your child until he's mature enough to play alone. Violence is moderate, but no blood or gore. Language is mild, but because some online players may have a PSEye (the PS3 webcam), kids may hear some strong language. Overall, it's good for everyone, but play it with the really younger kids until they're mature.

GREAT GAME, BABY!!!!

Awesome game! If your kids can`t play games with weapons like swords and axes and all that, this is a definite NO. No blood when weapons hit players, there`s some swearing in some phrases the characters in the game use when they win like Cervantes says "Come with me to Hell!" and Astaroth says "Bastard!" but some phrases don`t have swearing. Some characters MIGHT scare your kids if they get scared easily, like Spawn, Astaroth, Cervantes, Voldo, Charade, there`s a lot of things in this game that may not be appropriate for your kid if they`re younger than 9, 10, or 11.

Soulcalibur IV is WAY cool!

Character creation is fun! My favorite character is basically a custom guy in the style of astaroth! Those who do not like fighting games should still play soulcalibur IV!

Could be better.

Let's get one thing straight: Too. Little. Clothing! I mean come on! It's Star Wars for Pete's sake! (let's just forget about Slave Leia.) I think most teens who get the game would be too busy gawking at Ivy's parts instead of focusing on the gameplay and Star Wars. (and yes, they do move.) The fights are fun, but a little over-the-top violent. Like, you can crush people's ribs, snap their limbs, impale them with swords, etc. There's no blood, but the sound effects are all too realistic. There's not much language, with "bastard" being the worst. I would fix up the cleavage (in a good way) and tone down some of the violence, and everything would be good. P.S. There are lots of Star Wars songs in it too, they're just awesome!

It’s great (for the family?!?)

This is a great game. Legitimately the only innapropriate content is very mild language (like “d*mn” or “h*ll.” Seriously, you hear worse in Shrek.) and revealing outfits (most of the females are pretty modest. I mean, a robe that is slightly open to show some cleavage? A bodysuit? A robe that opens at the bottom to show some stylish panties? Not even that bad. The only really bad one is Ivy, whose costume is absolutely ridiculous.) Even then, none of the characters act sexual. They just dress in a revealing way. If you aren’t bothered by mildly sexualized characters, then this is a great party game.
