    This has to be the best sword fighting game EVER!!

    The best ever multi-player sword fighting game EVER!, not even topped by the next in the series the failure "Kengo - master of bushido". The sword to a vital location causing instant death was an inconcievably awesome ad... Read Full Review

    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 play it all night and... Read Full Review

    A very unusual and original fighting game, though flawed in its execution.

    I've always had a soft-spot for a good sword fight, but in terms of mano-a-mano combat, it's hard to find a good game dedicated to it - so naturally, Bushido Blade caught my eye when it was released! ~ Pros: + D... Read Full Review

    A stab to the face will actually kill you! Shocker!

    For those of you who are tired of the same resulting damage as getting stabbed in the face as getting stabbed in the foot, this is the game for you. It has no healthbars. It leaves the whole screen completely dedicated t... Read Full Review

    This is my favorite one-on-one fighter. With no HP bar and unpredictable fight outcomes, it revolutionized the genre.

    Bushido Blade is one of the first one-on-one fighter (or playable missions) that does not have an HP bar. The game designs "kill-zones" that when hit, your character will die. Also, it was one of the first fighters whe... Read Full Review

    Make sure to follow the code of the Bushido or your game will end early. BB is a 3D fighting game. There are initially 6 characters to choose from, with one unlockable, the boss from the Story Mode. Several modes of p... Read Full Review

    Makes you feel like an honorable ninja.

    Makes you feel like an honorable ninja. This game is very different from its genre of Hack'nSlash for to unlock the other characters you must follow Bushido Code and keep your honor and not strike an opponent at weakness... Read Full Review

    A great, realistic, awesome Japanese fighting game.

    This is one of the most realistic fighting games I've ever played. No life bars, no time limits, no excessive talking, none of that crap. It's REAL FIGHTING. If you are hit somewhere that would not kill you does not kill... Read Full Review
