    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.
  2. Baroque is obviously one of the most hardcore RPGs you're ver going to find, a real level-grinder.
  3. A fiendishly difficult, randomly generated dungeon crawler that at times can be an incredible work of interactive fiction, and at other times, a muddled mess.
  4. A fairly uninteresting story along with badly written characters won't encourage you to play this to the end. Still, fans of dungeon crawlers will likely find something here to like.

    Baroque is unique in concept but lacking in fun. The idea that you have to die in order to put the pieces of your life together is interesting and could work, but you still have to give the player a sense of direction and accomplishment.
  6. Without a sense of direction or a goal, you never feel as if you’re working towards something, and the entire quest almost seems arbitrary.
