Im thinking of buying this game but after reading this part of RPGfans review Im not so sure anymore.

"To complicate matters, while NIS has a history of doing an impeccable job of translations, especially when humorous, Blade Dancer is a disappointment. The dialogue is grammatically sound, but the vast majority of the jokes and comedic references are so out of place, and so obviously forced, that one wonders how much creative license was taken with the original content. The entire effect was more brutal than Working Designís mangling of Lunar II. It is entirely possible that the localization team didnít have much to work with in the first place, but this stinks worse than last weeks dirty diapers."

So has anyone played the game? I wonder how the translation compares to NISA other translations for example Atelier Iris 2 which I played not to long ago. I  found that there was some differences between the english text and japanese voices, but in AI2 it didnt bother me really, so is Blade Dancer translation worse?

It really bother me when companys take to much liberty when translating, it was the reason why I hated WD.

NIS is probably best suited for comedic/light hearted games. But it sounds like Blade Dancer's story is complete trash, so I don't know how much I'd care anyway. I'm probably going to avoid the game anyway, pending magically finding a copy for $5 or something.

I'm actually very interested in Blade Dancer, but I'm a little short on $$, so I'll probably wait.  I can tell it may not have much story, but the battle system sure looks fun.

All I have is the game's soundtrack. That part is good. As for the game itself, buy me a PSP and I'll tell you my thoughts (compared to Stephen's).
