Baten Kaitos is one of the few RPGs for the GCN, and it is one of the best Ive played. Now i am a sucker for card based games, so that may be why i like it so much, but i still think fans of RPGs would like it. You are a spirit that inhabits the body of Kalas, and thats as far as im gonna go because i dont want to give anything away, the plot of this story is a mix of political intrigue and the classic, RPg save the world complex, although it doesnt fasll in to many of the cliches that plague other titles. The gameplay is simply awesome. You try to make runs and sets from your hand of cards, that vary from attack to defnese to magic to healing. It\s very fast paced and once you get the hang of it you will be hooked. The graphics are very nice, and imo its one of the best looking games on the gamecube. The backrounds really stand out in that they are truly some of the most unique level ive seen in a while. the soundtrack is really really good, the voices, though. *shudder* Whoever decided to make the ppl sound like god know what should be fired and put under house arrest. Thats all i have to say. BK holds the title of the RPG that ive replayed the most, 6 times in total (w.e i know im weird) and thats because no matyter how many times i play it, it always seems new and freash. Although i may be partial towards some of the elements in Baten Kaitos, i think that any fan os the genre and evne tohse who arent will find something in to love.
