What's next in fighting? How about a game that melds 3D movement, polygon characters, razor sharp graphics, awe-inspiring moves and a one-of-a-kind combat system? Soul Blade is one of the most popular PlayStation arcade fighting games available. Coupled with challenging gameplay that emphasizes side-stepping counter-attacks and strategy Namco has made a fighting game worthy of the highest praises. A major element that elevates the quality of Soul Blade is its true 3D environment. This element not only proves useful in evading attacks but also for side stepping and attacking. While the attacks are powerful and cool to watch constant attacking will only take you so far in this game.
