  • Excerpt: Baten Kaitos (BK) is an odd mixture of elements that work astoundingly well with a few failed components that turn a potentially amazing experience into one that is merely mediocre. On one hand, BK has some of the most strikingly original and masterfully imagined set of backgrounds and worlds that I have seen in any RPG of recent note. On the other hand, the character designs are bland and boring.

  • Excerpt: And that's only the tip of the iceburg. There's the strange item system where each item changes form as time passes within the game - a healing item might become a blob of poison suddenly, and the character who tries to heal him or herself suddenly finds that he or she has ingested a poisonous substance.

  • Excerpt: Baten Kaitos is a card-based RPG that features 1000+ cards, over 140 attack combos, and gorgeous graphics. Even with its fair share of problems, which are mostly due to the fact that card-based games aren't exactly "all that", it is still worth checking out for GameCube owners. Read all about it right here.

  • Summary: The lavishly detailed world of Baten Kaitos is a great place to go for a nice fairy tale.
  • Pros: Beautiful, unique world., Unique card-based battle system., Lengthy, enjoyable adventure., Mutable cards are fun to play with.
  • Cons: Battle system has so much going on it can leave you behind., Nasal-sounding voices distract rather than immerse., You can level up only at save points.

  • Summary: Oh my, that Tengu has nipple tassels. I feel… violated somehow.
  • Pros: Addictive combo-laden battle system, Breathtaking FMV background are animated with a subtle beauty, Soundtrack to die for, So you use a dead branch, a chicken and <b>then</b> get the SuperUltraC-C-C-C-Combo? …Uhhh… that’s so <b>cool</b>
  • Cons: Monsters immediately reappear after leaving the screen, No real need for shops or money, Some enemies look like they were abducted from the Dreamcast, So you use a dead branch, a chicken and <b>then</b> get the SuperUltraC-C-C-C-Combo? …Uhhh… that’s so <b>weird</b>
