Barbarian has plenty of depth and should appeal to arcade adventurers who like a slice of action.
The Games Machine (UK)
The sampled sound effects are superb, as realistic as you can expect from the ST, and they really do add to the game. With some extremely devious traps to avoid, countless screens and many evil creatures to defeat, Barbarian will certainly get ST owners burning the midnight oil.
Davon abgesehen ist "Barbarian" ein ulkiges Kampf- und Suchprogramm mit ausgezeichneter Grafik und tollen Toneffekten, ohne dabei einen sehr hohen Spielwert zu bieten.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Barbarian is full of humour and has a lot of instant appeal - it is easy to identify with the hero and the graphics create an atmosphere which draws you into the world of the game. But there are some annoyances; it is a shame the game does not scroll, and it is exceptionally frustrating that you cannot save a game after hours of exhausting adventuring.
