Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light PSP Review

Console Obsession
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.

Just RPG
27 March 2007
  • 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 .

Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light

Playstation Illustrated
23 March 2007
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: starts off pretty slowly with a lengthy introduction, and quickly becomes an exciting adventure. The story is developed with and incorporates voiceovers that add emotion to the critical portions of the tale.

Blade Dancer Lineage of Light Review (PSP)

Yet Another Review Site
25 March 2007
  • Excerpt: An interesting RPG that will keep you coming back. Now RPG game play and portable games systems may seem to be a bizarre combination. The idea of gaming on the go is to give short blasts of entertainment. As such there are very few RPG style games for the PSP.
  • Pros: Some imaginative touches with decent roleplaying
  • Cons: Combat can be a bit strange, has a generic feel at times
