Baroque (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
18 July 2009
  • Excerpt: I’ve played my fair share of role playing games, and enjoy most Japanese style RPGs that I’ve come across. When Atlus announced a planned localization of Baroque for the PS2 and Wii, I was pretty shocked, as I always felt that it was one of those games that would never end up on our shores. Not that Baroque has any qualities that would make it sell poorly over here, but the game is probably the most hardcore of games you can come across.

This Game Is Baroque-n

Cheat Code Central

  • Conclusion: Despite all of its problems, there are still a few redeeming aspects that hardcore hack-and-slash RPG fans may appreciate. It's a really tough game with decent replay value, and while the controls are poorly done, there's no denying the potential that Baroque has. It's unfortunate that a game with this much promise turned out to be a rather poor title.

Expert Review

GameSpot
16 April 2008
  • Summary: Baroque is a hardcore dungeon crawler with a long history of US neglect. Originally released on the Sega Saturn in Japan roughly 10 years ago, it was remade on the PlayStation a year later, but neither version received a stateside release; it wasn't until it was remade yet again for the PlayStation 2 and Wii that it was finally brought over.
  • Pros: An incredible number of weapons and items to find and experiment with, Very strong and compelling story that tries something different and mostly succeeds
  • Cons: Extremely inaccessible for anyone but fans devoted to this genre, Intentionally vague storytelling method is very difficult to get into, The expressionless, doll-like characters seem awkward in cutscenes, Atrociously awful camera

Safecracker

  • Summary: Obwohl ich mir „Safecracker“ richtig schlecht reden kann, weil die Steuerung mit der Wii manchmal mehr nervt als Spaß bereitet, kam doch etwas Freude beim Spielen auf. Das allerdings hauptsächlich, weil die Geschichte rund um den Milliardär und seine Villa meine Fantasie beflügelte. Vielleicht entdeckt man ja wie bei Geld-Mogul Spelling auch noch ein Geschenke-Einpack-Zimmer?
  • Pros: unverbrauchtes Setting, Logikrätsel satt
  • Cons: keine Identifikation mit dem Helden, sterile Umgebung, schlechte Sprachausgabe, stolzer Preis
