I've never seen a fast-paced action game where you fight using a sword. I know many RPGs have swords but are they ever more than "click to swing sword"? We have both fighting games and FPS type games but I've never seen one that used a sword in any non-trivial way, like Doom's chainsaw. Are there any games which use swords in some proper sword-fight, where you can parry and so on? Were there any which were good?

Die By The Sword almost proved that first person sword fighting with 'realistic' controls aren't fun ;¬) It certainly convinced me of it at the time.

Bushido Blade was a great game.

Oblivion's combat was quite fun and certainly more realtime than most RPGs.

What about the Soulblade / SoulCalibur series?
