Summary: I came across with this game knowing to be a fighting game and also an rpg. Barbarian has some good ideas but also the games lacks in terms of what an rpg is. Its not a bad game either just wasn't made right really. But it's cool to build your character of your choice stats up. The game should of let the players explore in a vast world like Final Fantasy instend of moving from your map. Cause I think it would be a long quest if this game had it...oh well I guess.
Summary: "Barbarian" is a great, and fun, video game for the Sony PlayStation2. The fighting moves the characters have are really cool and the graphics rock! I highly recommend this video game to anyone.
Summary: I like this game because it's a cool game. Even if I hadn't beet the game, I still like it. I like it when I play against a friend. It's absolutely fun to play this game when you learn all the character's powers, moves, and combos. ... I highly recommend this game to future fans.
Summary: Honestly, I feel that one star is too high a rating for this boring title. I bought this game, took it home, beat it and returned it to it's case less than an hour later. That is no exaggeration. You play the story mode as one of the characters who ultimately kill the main boss for various reasons. The story is never developed and you never really understand what is going on. Worst of all, the fighting is terrible.
Summary: This is a fun game for the first day or so. It had a lame story line. The graphics were okay, but I think they could have done a lot better job. The fighting system is what brought it's rating down. It was kind of boring, and it was the same thing every time you fought, and don't be mistaken for it's miss advertising. IT IS NOT AN RPG. It is far from one, too.
Summary: Well first off, I'm not a fan of fighting games, so the one star may be a bit biased, but from the fighting gamews i have played, I still feel this would merit only one or two stars. I feel a bit mislead, if you, like i did have the impression that this game has a decent amount of role playing elements then you're wrong. The only aspect of roleplaying thats really here is after each fight you get about 3-5 points to add to a series of about 10 different attributes.
Summary: I have to admit ... I like this game. It definitely has two sides, mixing a Fighter like VF4/Tekken 4 and an RPG like FFX. Now, if you compare either side to the competition, there's no comparison. Obviously, VF4 is the best and FFX is in class all by itself. However, if you look at the combination of the two sides, I think you'll find that this game does a fine job of melding the two. Yes, similar fighting styles are shared among the fighters.
Summary: i regret even renting this game. it is NOT an rpg. it is NOT entertaining. this is a third rate fighting game with lame moves and an even lamer "character upgrade" system. the fighting system is boring as are the fights you get into. even the graphics are substandard.
Summary: Ok here's the game in short and sweet terms. WEAK! I don't even begin to understand how some people say its another classic game like Baldurs Gate or Gauntlet. its NOTHING like them, and for Titus to market it as an RPG is just plain rediculous. This has no adventuring of ANY kind although you can customize and power up your guy along the way, but the repetetive and boring combat just doesnt make up for it in the least.
