The third installment in the classic series of 3D fighting games for the Playstation, Battle Arena Toshinden 3 adds new characters, new special moves, and new play modes to the formula. One or two players can go head to head in a series of one-on-one fights, using regular, special, and super moves to knock the competitor's energy bar down to zero. Characters possess a wide variety of weaponry, and players will be dueling with swords, scythes, spears, pistols, and stranger arms in addition to engaging in hand-to-hand combat.
Twenty-eight characters are playable in total, fourteen of which are available at the beginning. The other fourteen are unlocked when players win the game in single player mode by defeating a series of competitors with each of the original characters. Fights are fast and furious, with plenty of 3D effects and pyrotechnics going on, and combos and special moves aplenty are available. The ability to smash your opponent into the walls or ceiling of the arena in which you play adds to the fun as well. ~ Scott Steinberg, All Game Guide
