If you liked 3 it's worth it. 1 feels unplayable and modified. I remember having hours of fun with the first one, but the HD version every enemy tends to perma block. It's not worth doing the full combos because the opponents typically will block the beam portion of your combos (even if they are 'staggered' due to a previous strike)., where as it's impossible to do the same thing. So 1 feels like pit fighter to me to be honest.
