Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean

Game Vortex
22 May 2006
  • Excerpt: Baten Kaitos is a stunning game visually, even with its blemishes. Backgrounds are pre-rendered and feature some nice details that help to bring the game’s world to life. Each area is brimming with life like flowing water, billowing clouds, and townspeople going about their daily business. The presentation is, however, marred by some small things.

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean (Gamecube) Review

Vooks
19 May 2005
  • Excerpt: Well, its finally here. After a good few years of development Namcos gun RPG has finally been released. When compared with other consoles the cube hasnt exactly been showered with a large quantity of RPGs with the most notable ones being Paper Mario, and Tales of Symphonia, both of which were of high quality creating a hard act for Baten Kaitos follow. The game promises much, including an innovative battle system and over 60 hours of gameplay.

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean GameCube Review

DarkZero

  • Conclusion: Never before have I played through a game with such an invigorating storyline and memorable moments. Although some of the writing and voice work is questionable, neither take away from the impact the game delivers. Despite the battle system being quite complex with many rules, it is surprisingly incredibly easy to pick up. A game that bleeds originality like Baten Kaitos should be given a chance by RPG fans no matter what their taste.

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and The Lost Ocean

MyGames

  • Conclusion: Kalas vai cruzar-se com Xelha, uma jovem aventureira e vão acabar se envolvendo numa trama que revolve à volta de forças poderosas, desde o Império, que domina todo o mundo de Baten Kaitos, a deuses, há muito adormecidos. A partir daqui vão embarcar numa aventura capaz de se estender por mais de 50 horas e onde vão juntar-se a mais aventureiros, como Lyude e Savyna, entre outros.
  • Pros: Cenários espectaculares, Longevidade, Sistema de combate extremamente original
  • Cons: Algumas deficiências no sistema de combates, Escassez de pontos para salvar o jogo

  • Conclusion: Bijou. Il n'y a pas de meilleur qualificatif possible : la réalisation demeure fantastique et servie par un scénario très riche et bien ficelé, les personnages sont définitivement attachants et parcourent un univers d'autant plus génial qu'il rappelle ceux d'anciens chefs-d'oeuvres du jeu de rôle. Indéniablement, Baten Kaitos dégage une aura. Et cela en fait un jeu d'exception, rare et précieux comme un rubis.
  • Pros: Scénario prenant, intelligent et furieusement bien ficelé, Gameplay aussi novateur qu'accrocheur, Réalisation superbe, Sakuraba en grande forme, Le côté "old school".
  • Cons: Non, je ne peux pas mettre ça, ce serait ridicule
