Soulcalibur IV CPU AI in Versus Mode...

...is quite fun to play against. Set it to 'VERY HARD' difficulty and you've got a virtual sparring partner to play against if no local players are online to play against.

The difficulty levels in VERSUS MODE for the AI are Easy, Normal, Hard, Very Hard, and Edge Master. "Very Hard" difficulty puts up a good fight, though since it is a CPU opponent it won't pull any surprises or weird tricks that human players usually do. I haven't gotten around to playing against 'Edge Master' difficulty but that's a personal decision because I don't want to get too stressed out playing the game. Practicing in VERSUS MODE against the AI is a great way to test out your own tricks and figure out some new ways to play. Of course, the best test of your own skills in Soulcalibur IV is to play against a human opponent, but when you can't find one (whether online or off), VERSUS MODE against AI is a nice alternative.

To play against AI, choose 'VERSUS MODE', then leave 2P set to CPU (or 1P, if you want to play on the right side). Changing the difficulty level is on the OPTIONS menu, in the 'VERSUS MODE' options. You can also change the difficulty while you're selecting your character, by pressing START at the character select menu.
