 TFH Gaming.com - Barbarian for PS2 review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Though the back of the case tries to convince otherwise, Barbarian is a 3D fighting game reminiscent of Power Stone that tries to squeeze the mileage out of its additional features such as the story-based Quest mode and multiplayer support.
Since Barbarian is much easier to pick-up-and-play than more serious fighting games, it’s better than most for involving players of all levels in an exciting beat down.
While Barbarian is to be applauded for trying to put a new twist on fighting games, it’s lacking the depth of moves and graphical excellence of other 3D fighting games.

 Diablo II - Barbarian   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Barbarian doesn't have any counterpart in Diablo I. Of course, the Warrior was the best asset for melee fighters but the Barbarian is more powerful, especially with his hability to use two weapons at the same time.
On the other hand, the Barbarian is not as good as spell casting as the Warrior was (especially since most spells are not available to all classes of characters) and he needs a lot of mana, even for basic spells.
This skill tree helps the Barbarian cause more damages to his opponent and gives him special capabilities such as jumping or attacking two different targets at the same time.

 IGN Boards - How high can the Barbarian's hp go?
