Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light PSP Review
30 May 2010
Excerpt: Generally storylines in Japanese RPGS have been as generic and predictable as this opening paragraph of this review that you currently have your eyeballs laid up on. Destruction of world looms, teenager usually with spiky hair and psychological demons steps up to save it.
Excerpt: Finding those morning bus rides into work un-involving... Finding the crazy old man sat next to you uninteresting... Want to escape to somewhere brighter and more fantastic... Don't worry, Ignition Entertainment's here for you.
Excerpt: In July, NIS America will be releasing their second title for the PlayStation Portable, Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light . Based on what I’ve seen and played, Blade Dancer is looking to be an RPG that fans might want to keep their eyes open for.
Excerpt: While the PSP has seen a decent quantity of RPGs as of late, the problem is that the quality of many of these games is merely average at best. One of the latest RPGs to be released for the handheld is from NIS America and titled Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light .
Excerpt: Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light is the latest attempt at bringing the RPG genre to the PSP. I say attempt because, while there have been several on the system, none have really managed to do much of anything.
Excerpt: The Portable Role-Playing Game: an almost oxymoronic term when you think about it. The seemingly incompatible mesh of a genre known for depth and longevity, spliced with a platform designed for short bursts of play.
Excerpt: Blade Dancer is another RPG brought out by NIS America for the PSP, developed by Hit Maker for SCE. This RPG offers up an early PS2-quality polygon-based experience featuring real-time enemies, active turn-based combat and a crafting system that both easy and necessary.
Pros: Nice mix of real-time enemies and active turn-based combat, Missions galore, Crafting is both easy and necessary, Ad-hoc multiplayer
Cons: Graphics could be flashier, Story is a bit stale and by-the-numbers
