It's a shame how poorly Game Republic's action-adventure Folklore sold considering how fantastic the story and the sixaxis implementation are. After seeing its abysmal lifetime sales from the NPD, I felt compelled to give this gem a little justice. If...

Folklore delivers a fantastic story and art direction.

Despite dominating the RPG genre for the past two generations of hardware, Sony has found themselves in a very unfamiliar position with the PlayStation 3. With sales of the Xbox 360 still far ahead of Sony's ultra-powerful PS3, Japanese developers have...

Folklore delivers a fairly lengthy and enjoyable quest that PlayStation 3 owners, who love the genre, will definitely want to check out. Despite the game being extremely linear, Folklore deserves more attention than it was given and is an experience...

Folklore (PS3)


They won't be singing songs about this one in the mountains.

While there are many who'll try to disagree, there's no denying that the PlayStation 3's first year was something of a rough start. Even though the degree to which Sony stumbled and suffered is often greatly exaggerated, the low sales and shaky...

Absolutely incredible – though limited – presentation ; Compelling and well-written story ; Tame motion controls

Should have included fully animated and voiced cutscenes ; No multiplayer battles or co-op play ; A little repetitive at times

Folklore is a game that comes so close to perfection and yet falls short that it irritates me. It may seem strange, but I’m more inclined to forgive the endless stream of ports and quick cash-ins I’ve had to wade through for their faults then I am...

It isn't long before Ellen and Keats both have the ability to run through the seven different realms of the Netherworld. Friendly spirits called faeries will help them navigate the labyrinths and passages, offering combat tips as well as background...

Originally believed to be a project related to the PSP title "Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner," details slowly but steadily surfaced about this PlayStation 3 project involving creative director Kouji "Cozy" Okada. However, it was later discovered that...

Though the game's progression is simple and formulaic, its combat system and plot stand out as remarkable: beautiful in their subtlety and understated styles. Since the RPG library on the PlayStation 3 is currently lacking, RPG fans would do well to at...

Billed by Sony as “the next generation in dark fantasy games,” Folklore, like so many action platformer games, tried to bill itself as an action RPG but the truth is the game more honestly has more in common with Rachet and Clank than it does with...

The game is very pretty to look at ; The core plot setups promise an intriguing storyline

That storyline never really delivers ; The battle system is repetitive, simple and annoying

Folklore is a tale best left to the mists of time.

The visual presentation of Folklore is certainly unique and interesting. Technically the game looks great, with the realistic style of Doolin, mixed in with the colorful and absurdly Japanese stylings of the Netherworld levels, whether it's a war-torn...

Two strangers with seemingly separate paths are drawn to the mysterious village of Doolin where things are not what they seem. While one is looking to solve a murder, and the other is trying to find her past, both will be caught up together in the...
