Slick Anthology

A video game collection in blog form… a constant work in progress

Bushido Blade

Bushido Blade Cover

System: PS1

Genre: 3D Fighting

Release: 9/30/97

Completed: Partially

One of the better weapons based fighting games on the PS1, this game had a very radical approach to gameplay when compared to other fighters. At any given time you could be kill or be killed by your opponent with a well placed katana to the chest. There’s no health gauges, instead you just give one well placed slash and claim victory, or reel in defeat as your opponent dodges or parries your blow and finished you off. For this reason it’s a much more realistic fighting game. Having the Squaresoft banner attached at the bottom means its a bit more collectible than other games, but it’s readily available online and won’t set you back much. Worth a look for it’s unique look on fighting games.

Buy this game from Amazon.
