I like Your highly subjective and vivid reviews. I know You've been criticized for just that, but the point is: You give the reasons for Your subjective viewpoint very clearly. Because of that, I can decide for myself if I would have the same opinion or not, given Your explanation.

This is much more helpful to me than the reviews that give a crappy (sorry) game 5 points where even a real, real, real fan of the game would reasonably give a maximum of 4, praising the game as if it came from heaven.

It seems to me that, most of the time, You spare me a disappointing experience. Thanks a lot!

You didn't mention that this really is an old game, straight from the first years of Amiga. On that platform, at a certain point in time, it was one of the best-looking games around (and it certainly looked better than this pc port); the "big icons" interface was created to experience the "full power" of the then-revolutionary mouse pointer! :brain:

This said, gameplay always sucked, so I agree with your review. I always ended up playing 5 minutes of Barbarian and 4 hours of Kick-Off... god, I need a decent amiga emulator

Hey, I played this game on my old ZX Spectrum+. There were infinite lives in my version so it was easy to complete it. I agree it's really difficult game (I died at least five times in every room where enemies were) but it's not THAT bad. You just need to know what to do.

Hi!,I also played Barbarian on Spectrum(those were great days!) .I finished it without infinite lives but it was really haaard.Despite the gameplay I must say that even liked this game because it had a nice graphic(for my 8 bit machine)...

After killing the wizard and droping the orb into the pit, i never jumped into the pit.. to finish the game you must go aaaaaaaaaaaaaall the way back to the beginning to the first screen.. then you finish the game.

...

EDIT: I just finished the game and i jumped to the pit.. that's the unofficial way to finish the game.. as you completed 100% of the game... but the real ending is when you go back to the first screen =P take it as alternative endings:

Good Ending: You killed the mad wizard and saved your tribe.

Bad Ending: After you killed the wizard you became possesed by an evil force wich makes you jump down to the bottomless pit.

lol

I remember playing the C64 version back in the day. It was a bad game even then. The amiga version was a huge hit because of its sampled voice at the beginning of the game (!) I remembered how i went all the way back just to see a well done text (as far as i remember). After some time i bought an amiga and tried the game on the amiga for a few minutes. I turned it off and played north and south instead. Not psygnosis' best game ever.

Don't really understand your question.
