I can’t speak for everyone here or elsewhere, but why isn’t Soul Edge/Blade as fondly recalled if at all) like its immediate sequel “Soul Calibur”, which has seemingly taking its place as the first in the Soul series (in some people’s eyes)? Is it because it falls under that group of first and second-gen 3D fighting games (VF1, Tekken 1, BAT1) in that its dull and unplayable w/little replay value? Was it the (semi-controversial) 30FPS frame rate (which in turn enabled Namco to pull off one of the best-looking 32-Bit 3D fighting games this side of Tobal 2).
For those of you who’re familiar with the game and played it back then, do you think that (then and now) it was underrated and if it still holds up compared to its sequels, or does it indeed join the ranks of the original Virtua Fighter, Tekken and Toshinden as nostalgic novelties?
