  1. What I really enjoyed was the crafting system because we could craft the item whenever we wanted, even on the world map, thus reducing the need of going back to town to buy healing items or new equipment.
  2. While Blade Dancer is a very fun, solid title, if you're not a true fan of the genre, it's not going to change your mind. [Aug 2006, p.86]
  3. Blade Dancer doesn’t stray from the tired formula of classic Japanese role-playing games when it comes to the storytelling and cast of characters.
  4. NIS tried hard with this new game built specifically for the PSP, but design flaws and a weak story hold back what could have been a good game.
  5. Great to look at and a thrill to explore, but its plodding, turn-based fights are enough to put off all but the most patient of RPGers. [Nov 2006, p.100]
  6. At its best, Blade Dancer offers familiarity, along with a half-hearted attempt at multiplayer. [Aug 2006, p.93]
  7. Blade Dancer is an RPG lacking in character, soul, and most importantly, entertainment. Not recommended. [Oct 2006, p.129]
