Bushido Blade review

Reviewed January 30, 2004

Zigfried says: "Imagine two swordsmen facing each other across the moonlit pagoda courtyard. The older man holds his blade steady in a frontal kendo stance, and the younger brandishes a sabre above his head. As the silence of the night punctuates the tension, the brash youngster charges headfirst at the wizened master. A single strike, a single clatter of steel, and both men fall face-first to the ground, dead."

Bushido Blade review

Reviewed March 07, 2004

bloomer says: "Bushido Blade (BB) is Squaresoft's infamous samurai swordfighting game of one-hit kills. There are no health gauges, combo counters or special powers here. BB follows the impulse of realism: One properly executed stab to the head or torso will end life immediately. Blows to limbs maim those limbs, legs can be rendered useless so that your opponent is reduced to crawling or just lying on the ground, and the whole thing is confidently presented in status-free glory. There's no text, no mess..."
