    If you're an idiot like zzzxx, then you will complain about not being able to get one hit kills on the computer opponents, not being able to beat the 'Slash mode' and whining about the game's six char...

    Wanna be a ninja?

    Rated on January 05, 2006 by Vul52988

    This (and the sequel) is perhaps the best sword-slinging action game around. An older game with severely outdated graphics, this game manages to keep what makes it so awesome: it's simple, but innova...

    Classic

    I've been playing Bushido Blade off and on since like the seventh grade and it still keeps me entertained. It's one of those few games out there that have such a great replay value you can literally p...

    A new and interesting way of fighting

    Rated on March 22, 2005 by ShadowRealm2FX

    Bushido Blade is far by one of the most fascinating fighting games I have ever played. The ability to use a variety of swords to combat against CPU opponents and your friends is very broad and fun. Yo...

    This game deserved to be revived on the PS2. For a fighting game it had many points to praise: the cumulative body-part injuries and the risk of one-hit-death instead of the usual damage meter, a rang...

    Rated on January 29, 2006 by ApeOverlord

    Holy Cow! I never saw such an awesome sword fighting game like this one before. Hence the fact that was rated T for Teen, I played it when I was 8 and it was my favorite at the time. It is pretty unus...

    Makes you feel like an honorable ninja.

    Intriguing and singular, Bushido Blade dares challenge the fighting game genre status quo.

    Rated on August 12, 2007 by SciFiCat

    For as long as the fighting game genre been around, it had always been dependent on a tried and true life bar mechanic. It is a simple enough method to gauge your health status and that of your oppon...
