Zero Punctuation: Soul Caliber 4

Unlike Yahtzee, I do enjoy fighting games, but Soul Caliber 4 just hasnt grabbed me. Maybe I've just played too many games of DOA, Guilty Gear, and Street Fighter since I was rocking Soul Caliber on the Dreamcast, but it just feels different now. The game looks great, plays well, has cool customization, etc., but I think my tastes have changed, and the Soul Caliber series just isnt in the top 3 for me anymore. Essentially, I liked a faster paced game, with more emphasis on blocking, combos, and counters than on long range attacks and round ending throws off the ledge.
