Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light PSP Review


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...

Whilst this writer doesn’t doubt that there’s a lot of fun RPGS, many will agree that it’s normally the story that primarily drives them forward in such a game. Featuring an entertaining but predictable storyline, Blade Dancer is rare in that we play...

Blade Dancer: Lineage Of Light (PSP) review


The RPG that thinks inside the boxrn

We'd like to give Blade Dancer a better score, but it doesn't even try to raise the bar. It's like a bright student that produces reasonable results but doesn't fulfill its potential. A completely forgettable experience.

HP Pavilion dv4-2145dx review


Editors' note: This review is part of our , which covers specific fixed configurations of popular systems found in retail stores.

Surprisingly robust audio output; slick design; sturdy construction; competent budget performer; includes HDMI port.

Substandard battery life; heavy and bulky for its size; glossy touch pad doesn't provide best feel and is positioned poorly on the keyboard deck.

Given its entertainment features, relative bulk, and poor battery life, the HP Pavilion dv4-2145dx is more of a mini desktop replacement than take-everywhere midsize laptop.

Blade Dancer: Lineage Of Light


The PSP is slowly becoming the hot spot when it comes to portable RPG goodness. With companies like Nippon Ichi and Atlus pledging full support, fans of the genre have...

Great Crafting Mechanic ; Battle System Is Unique ; No More Magic Points

Storyline Is Predictable And Bland ; Character Development Lacking ; Sub-Par Visuals

Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light


I love Pokémon. I know, it seems an odd thing to say at the start of a review for a PSP game, but I only bring it up because it is an RPG. Most people shun the series, with some RPG fans claiming it isn't really one at all, and anime nuts claim the...

Looks great ; Sounds good ; Plenty to do ; Co-op Multiplayer

Hybrid combat ; No game pause ; Needs more save points ; Worthless map

As you hopefully noticed above, most of my complaints about Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light were rather minor, with my only real problem with the game being the hybrid turn-based/real-time combat. The game looks better than most PSP offerings,...

A little too dim for its own good.

Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light


Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light 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. The game play...

Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light


One of the first RPGs I can remember playing that had item creation as a feature is the PSone classic, Star Ocean: Second Story. The idea was solid and provided a purpose to all the item gathering available in the game's world. Although the concept was...

Item creation system is one of the best around, and one of the top draws to the game ; Plenty of voice acting on a PSP title is always a good thing ; Battle system has some interesting ideas and twists

Fairly brief for an RPG ; Characters and story are paint-by-numbers

The item-creation system and battle system are laudable, but Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light falls on its own sword when it comes to delivering interesting characters or an intriguing storyline; as a result, the game falls short of must-have status.

Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light


PSP owners finally have a console-style RPG to call their own -- a mediocre console-style RPG.

For as decent as the battle system and item crafting parts of the game are, they simply can't hold up the entirely mediocre or cliche other bits. The game is solid, yes, but I was hoping the first console-level RPG would be a little more, well, engaging.

Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light review for the PSP


Rhythm and blues.

Awesome battle system; Looks good

Everything else is bland; Moves too slow; No overworld music

Still looking for a good PSP RPG? We've been waiting patiently too, and finally a few new titles have entered the fray. The latest, Hitmaker's Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light, offers surprisingly twinkle-toed gameplay for a genre steeped in the slow...
