    The PSP gets a solid, enjoyable RPG. It's about time.

    There don't seem to be a lot of comments about this game yet, so I'm giving my two cents earlier than I normally would. I only have about eight hours invested so far, but I am thoroughly enjoying Blade Dancer and would ... Read Full Review

    Not feeling this game...

    Okay, imagine Final Fantasy, then put it in slow motion and you have this game. It has a partly interesting story, and terrible voice acting, but it can be fun. The map walking can be annoying because you move so terribl... Read Full Review

    Old school style RPG with modern sensibilities

    Take the bland story of an 8-bit RPG, add some mostly bland environments, but make the gameplay top-notch, and you actually get a very solid game. The saving grace here is the battle system, which I thought was excellent... Read Full Review

    This game was not worth playing at all.

    At first the game was good. It had a good story line and a realistic main character. However, as the story progressed, it seemed as though the writer became lazy and started lacking in details. The load scenes between... Read Full Review

    Blade Dancer is too slow to be an action RPG, and too light to be a full-fledged RPG.

    Blade Dancer offers some very nice RPG elements -- you start the game with a well-done anime cutscene, then are placed in a large town with many inhabitants to talk to, stores to browse, the occasional bit of "tutorial" ... Read Full Review

    good game, ending spoiler (a bit of one), worth playing

    All in all, Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light was a great game. The difficulty level started out easy and slowly got harder. Some parts were a bit hard while others were easy. Some of the quests were a bit hard to do or to ... Read Full Review

    One of the worst RPG's i've ever played =/

    When i looked at this game, ignoring bad reviews, it looked pretty good. When you first start it seems like an okayish kinda game but as you get about 4/5 hours into it, it starts to get REALLY boring! I know games... Read Full Review

    Its ok, but I'd rather play something else.

    Blade Dancer, what can I say? I love the storyline, but the gameplay is just...blech. Leveling up is more difficult and annoying than any other RPG, the battle systems kill me and the monsters even at the very beginning ... Read Full Review
