From Strategyinformer.com: "Blades of Time doesn't make a good first impression. Ayumi, the lead character of this hack 'n slash tale, is one of the most irritating heroines in recent memory. She wiggles around in a skimpy outfit, searching for valuable treasure in a variation of challenging and savage lands. Her martial arts ability, although effective, is flawed. Worst of all, she loves to analyse everything with stupid one-liners and rhetorical questions. Without beating around the bush, Ayumi is an idiot".
