* ItsHardSoItSucks[=/=]SoBadItsGood: Website/HardcoreGaming101 [[http://hardcoregaming101.net/weaponlord/weaponlord.htm stated that]] ''Weaponlord'', while [[NintendoHard outrageously difficult]], filled with incredibly unconventional controls, and having a limited roster, also manages to an outrageous experience and an actually nicely-assembled game despite its shortcomings.
** Conversely, it's for these very same reasons, [[TropeCodifier plus several of the rather innovative features that became commonplace in later fighters]], that ''Weaponlord'' has something of a {{cult|Classic}} following (being covered by the likes of [[WebVideo/GameGrumps Arin and Jon]] and especially [[WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay Matt and Woolie]] [[ColbertBump helped somewhat]]), as the game was designed to deliberately cater to veteran fighting game fans (and thus was very inaccessible to beginners).
