but knowing Atlus, i'm not that surpirse. Most of their RPGs are weird and unique in their own way, which make them good RPGs for gamers like me. Baroque is an exception though. It has the weird part (die to continue the story) and maybe the story, but the gameplay and game design killed my interest for this game. The game does offer some new features however, like the main character can puch or kick or use weapons if you so choose, also you can see your enemies just like FFXII so no random battles. The graphic is decent and decent story (giving that you stuck till the end...)The bad parts??? I'm not sure if this game should consider as RPG.. It's a dungeon crawler, and the tower is basiclly the only place you will spend all your time in. the game also somehow suffer from the "fog effect" like in dynasty and samurai warriors!.. you can only see about 5-7 feet of you.. other than that.. it's just fog. So don't be surprise when enemires just popping out of nowhere.
This game is not good at all. The game starts out with an intro movie where locked in some lab in a water tank. Then you take control of your character in a demon city type setting. The game gives you no instruction on where to go and your left to walk around aimlessly. There is a training dungeon but i am pretty sure you will have already went into the main dungeon first and wont need the training dungeon. I could go more into depth about this game but try it yourself if you doubt this is one of the worse games for ps2.
