  1. I've played through dozens upon dozens of games and I have never seen a game with graphics like this.
  2. A beautiful and intense RPG, mixing turn-based strategy with graphics that, although pre-rendered, are mind blowing in terms of crispness, colour and detail. [GamesMaster]
  3. The battle system has a flaw or two, but the lavishly detailed world of Baten Kaitos is a great place to go for a nice fairy tale.
  4. Without giving too much away, I can say this: There is a plot-twist in this game that is so great that even the most hard-core RPG veterans won't see it coming.

    It's the balance of gameplay elements that make Baten Kaitos an interesting game to play. It's not particularly memorable but it does capture you in the moment. For a game of such length not to feel repetitive is truly an accomplishment.

    It's very unfortunate that everything in Baten Kaitos did not come together to create a truly great gaming experience. The shallow battle system becomes boring quickly, and the voice acting's poor quality drops the game to a simply average level.
  7. The fact that it was a card battle game, it could only hold attention for so long to where the system got repetitive, and fighting was a drag after the halfway point.

Crap plot, terrible characters and voice acting. I don't know why so many people like this turd of a game. Expand
