Anyone noticed, that some combos/special attacks are messed up, at least in case of Barbarian?
First example - special1.jpg:
Back Smash doesn't have "attack" in it, only movements.
Second example - special2.jpg:
Speed Kill is described as: Attack with forward and then backward, but it is wrong, the corrected sequence is: Attack with jump and then backward.

Not sure about the second one, but the first move does induce a sword swing - along with the 180 degree turn. Its not the most powerful move in the world, but handy if surrounded on occasion

You are right, I've managed to perform the Back Smash after all.
I'm not sure what you asking, are you saying those moves are somehow bugged?

You`re wrong. Speed kill is executed with the attck button and forward at the same time ,which will execute a high slash, then pressing backwards ,which will give you the redish speedkill. When you have to press jump the arrow key has alot of cuts in it.
Back Smash is exceedingly useful in just one circumstance: fighting necromancers. The buggers teleport right behind you after you've destroyed their shield, and if you stay out of reach. A quick Back Smash will do a bit of damage, after which you quickly dodge backwards, out of reach again. That way, necromancers don't pose too much of a problem. Took me an age to find out this combo... before I did, necromancers were among the hardest enemies for me.
Barbarian is the most difficult character to play with. Compared to other characters, he is slower, and apparently more clumsy/brutish. You have to keep the right distances from enemies (according to what weapon you hold at the time, what is its reach, how slowly you swing it and its special moves' reach), keep in mind that his moves even with locked-on enemies are extremely easy to miss, his back attack lacks the accuracy and straightforwardness of the back attacks of the others, and that he is more vulnerable to interrupts from his special moves, because he swings slowly heavy, large weapons, with difficult and complicated moves on top of that.

Barbarian is not for your first playthrough. Steep learning curve. If you get to know the game and its mechanics well, you will have a great time playing as one; if he is on your first playthrough, though, you might even hate the game and go for uninstall... Begin with knight. Or amazon. Many combos, lots of choices, good speed, simple moves. Barbarian is hardcore.

I started out with the Amazon. The idea of nimble character keeping her distance and dodging out of harms way really appealed to me at first. Since you only ever have 3 combo's with her which seem to grind everything to a pulp I grew bored very quickly and switched to the Barbarian (I didn't want a character using a shield). He's a different story. Distance is everything, because he's slow like you said. Reading your opponent is everything so you know which of his many moves to use (instead of the choice dodge or whirlwind). Executing the right move is hard though, because you get easily interrupted. Dodging is hard because he's so big, and again slow ... I love it! It's a steep learning curve like you said which has me cursing quite frequently, and that reminds me of my early Demon's Souls days :D So far it's a wonderfull experience and I'm glad I bought this game.
I played both barbarian and dwarf, and I find barb a little easier to play with. I think barbarian is a bit faster than dwarf, his moves seem to be a little more fluid. Although without shield You have dodge constantly, because blocking with weapon is (at least for me) extremely difficult, I'm always doing blocks too late.
Other thing - how to perform Destroyer attack with Flat Sword? It should be: Attack and then Left and Right simultaneously. I don't know, I just can't do it.
