    I'm fairly interested in Baroque, personally. The Wii has been lagging when it comes to good action RPGs, so hopefully Baroque will fill that void, despite it also being developed for PS2.
    One of the interesting features I think has to be that there isn't a game over, and sometimes dieing actually pushes the story forward, or reveals something you wouldn't have known without having it happen. It also sounds refreshingly dark, plotwise.

    I think the major point against it are the mediocre graphics, but I don't think that'd stop me from getting it when money becomes available.

    Also, the music in the trailer is awesome.

    Yup I like the music too,heh yeah graphics don't look to bright but there ok to me I don't mind them since I ususlly look at the artwork and story which in Baroques case is interestingly dark.-^__^-

    the Baroque remake has been out in Japan for over a year... but it's not a Wii game ^^; It's for the PS2. (wƒoƒƒbƒNx‚*‚Ì–¼ìRPG‚ª• *ˆ!! / ƒtƒ@ƒ~’Ê.com)

    The original was on Saturn in the late 90s (along with my favorite, oddly similar RPS series "Black Matrix")

    Amazon.co.jpF ƒoƒƒbƒN: ƒQ[ƒ€

    The reviews are not so good. (14 people - 4 stars, 14 people - 3 stars, 3 people - 2 stars, 2 people - 1 star)

    It's being called "shovelware", "an obvious remake", and is being criticized for playstation quality graphics and music.

    Joko (a metacritic-style site) gives it 68%
    y PS2 zƒoƒƒbƒN ƒŒƒrƒ…[(•]‰&#191

    62% from psmk ƒoƒƒbƒN ƒŒƒrƒ…[(•]‰¿) :: PlayStation mk2

    One would think that, but Wii-makes of PS2 games are all the rage these days!

    A rather gigantic box art, pretty cool looking

    I had no idea it was a Saturn remake though. The reviews are rather concerning, but if it is indeed shovelware as they say;

    a. I now know why it's going to Wii.
    b. At least it will be better than Ninjabread Man.
