Summary

What's next in fighting? How about a game that melds 3D movement, polygon characters, razor sharp graphics, awe-inspiring moves and a one-of-a-kind combat system? Or, in short, Soul Blade - arguably the most innovative fighting game on the planet. It's the 15th century and ten warriors from around the world, each wielding their weapon of choice, are in bloody pursuit of Soul Edge - the ultimate weapon. Sure, only one will find it. But it looks like the critics already have found it. Game Players magazine voted Soul Blade "Best Game of Show" at AMMO, and NEXT Generation calls Soul Blade "the most complete fighting game to date." Obviously, a cut above.

  • First polygon fighter to feature an authentic weapon-to-weapon combat system - incredibly realistic feedback when weapons collide
  • Ten amazing characters - the most detailed characters yet to be seen on a Playstation polygon fighter
  • Characters with their own distinct 3D ending crafted from ancient lore
  • An arsenal of combo attacks, secret techniques and special throws for each warrior
  • Real 3D backgrounds for each character, providing the player with an unsurpassed sense of realism
  • All backgrounds feature light sourcing
  • From electrified swords to glowing "motion blurs", stunning special effects highlight each characters' fighting technique
  • Original, orchestral music score set
  • Multiple weapons

A legendary game. The music score made it what it was. Too bad the latter game in the series couldnt match the atmospheric music from this game.

The game that started it all! Man it's tough to actually play though. Gameplay is BROKE compared to later iterations.
