One of the best fighting-games for your Playstation
28 April 2001 | by (Froland, Norway) – See all my reviews

First "Soul Edge" for the Playstation is called "Soul Blade". From the company that gave us the "Tekken-series" came "Soul Edge", a new fighter, which focused more on weapon-based fighting than any other game before it. The pace of the game is much faster than "Tekken", it has great playability and nice graphics. This game is very cheap nowadays, and if you own the trilogy of "Tekken", then this game will certainly please you. The sequel to "Soul Blade" is called "Soul Calibur", and is available for the Sega Dreamcast.
