Baroque - Wii review at Thunderbolt Games


Game over', ‘Please Try Again', ‘Continue?'

Back in 1998, Sting developed a rogue dungeon crawler called Baroque for the Sega Saturn. It was ported to PlayStation a year later, but for reasons unknown, neither game was released in North America, and remained a cult classic only in Japan. Last...

The game has its share of flaws and tedium, but I enjoyed it. The gameplay can be cheap, but it does have a good degree of challenge. Technical aspects are weak, but there is some style going for it. For a subgenre that tends to lack decent plot and...

Emo-goth dungeon crawling at its finest

Super addictive dungeon crawling ; Story you uncover in bits and pieces ; Lots of character customization

Dying and starting over ; How emo everyone is ; Traps that turn tools into meat

One of the better-looking games on the Wii in general (i.e. not counting first party offerings), Baroque is also one of the most hardcore, RPG-wise. You can even play it first person, like the original. The ambient techno-rock soundtrack isn’t terribly...

Baroque (Wii)


Playing Baroque for the Wii is rather a lot like overhearing a couple having an argument at a cafe: You feel vaguely uncomfortable, but still curious to know what's going on. It's not just the twisted and disturbing creatures of Baroque that will...

Atlus is a name that strikes delight in the heart of many a gamer, and I count myself as one of that collective. Aside from the brilliant Persona 3, Atlus has been responsible for many well-respe...

Baroque (Wii) review


One look tells you this is the bleakest Wii game yet, rnbut will its gameplay cheer you up?

Not a terrible game but if you want to be scared witless, go for Resi 4 instead. Want an RPG? Get Twilight Princess.

Baroque is a roguelike dungeon-crawling RPG from Japanese developer Sting Entertainment. Initially released in the late nineties, the first version of the game was only available in Japan for the Sega Saturn, and later the Playstation. Now, more than...

Baroque is an odd one, even by roguelike standards. It has all the elements of the genre that will put off 'regular' players - random dungeons, deadly difficulty spikes, loss of items and experience on death - but it also suffers from technical...

Mario Strikers Charged... Hmm...


Well, I bought this game quite a while back. While the roster is enjoyable and the gameplay is pretty fun, it can become repetitive after a while.First off, the characters. They've brought back quite a few characters, which consists of 12 ...

Online play, characters, stages

Electric fence, very hard CPU characters, cheap shots

Wi-Fi game play makes it very appealing


The reason we got this game was because it was multi player and we have enjoyed Wii sports games in the past. Really, the only reason we chose this game was because all the games we really wanted were already checked out. This game is fun as a solo ...

Wi-fi game play, Audio

Repetitive. Megasrike

For People with a Competitive Streak...


The only reason to purchase Mario strikers, in my opinion, is for the very intense and exciting multi-player experience. Playing against your friends is great as well as trying to work your way up the on-line ladder system. Getting very good at a game...

Complex game-play makes for a rewarding multi-player experience

Single player is boring
