3 PS3 Exclusives that Could Use a Second Chance

OnlySP writes: The PlayStation has given us tons of great games, games like Uncharted, Killzone, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy, God Of War and Metal Gear Solid just to name a few. Yet, while these are just a few examples of some of the more successful titles, there were several that received negativity, failing to meet the goals laid out by the developers. Take a look back with me at three PlayStation 3 titles that had huge expectations upon their release, failed to meet it and certainly could use a second chance in today's market. (Haze, Heavenly Sword, Lair, PS3)

Really do wish Sony would give Lair another chance. Focus on its gameplay, don't use it as a vehicle for a gimmick.

For that matter as a title which actually used sixaxis to decent if not good effect Folklore could use a sequel.

Folklore^ Yes.

my 3 exclusive that really deserve a second chance are:
1. Heavenly Sword
2. Folklore
3. Lair

lair does not deserve a second chance, everything about the game sucked. The gameplay even when they made motion optional was still horrible, the graphics were a mess outside of some character models, and the story was bland. I liked folklore alot though.
PockyKing  +   873d ago
I think the graphics look great, even in todays standards. The environments were huge.
Reverent  +   873d ago
I think it's funny when people insult one game, then try to justify themselves by saying they like another game, hoping to accumulate less disagrees.

Definitely
Lair,Heavenly Sword, & Folklore, But I wanna see another TOMBA!

How about Haze HD?

*gets booed and hit with veggies* OK OK, JEEZ
Summons75  +   873d ago
Folkelore, Haze, Lair

Anything to do with Ninja Theroy should just be gathered in a giant pile and burned. Outside of them screwing up devil may cry's already set lore you wanna know why they shouldn't touch the game....just look at Heavenly Sword terrible to the core.

I feel like you agreed with yourself 3 times with multiple accounts.

I guess I'll know for sure if I randomly get 3-4 disagrees, huh? ;)

The memory of Haze still makes me shudder.

lol

Haze could've been so great.
BigStef71  +   873d ago
I got a ps3 a couple years ago so I never go to play these three games. How are they and are they worth buying now?
PockyKing  +   873d ago
Heavenly Sword, yes, Lair, maybe, Haze, No
BigStef71  +   873d ago
Thanks!!! I watched the gameplay for all three of them and they all looks pretty good with heavenly sword looking the best. Heavenly Sword was made by Ninja Theory who made enslaved and the new DMC so this is a definite buy. I see Lair was made by factor 5 who did rogue squadron and Haze by free radical who made TimeSplitters but both games got pretty bad reviews. I loved the games they have made in the past so im still kinda tempted in getting Lair and Haze. I heard Lair's problems were the controls which are fixed I guess so I'm willing to check it out. Is Haze really that bad?LOL
PockyKing  +   873d ago
If I were you, I'd get Lair just for the fact that there's huge battles in the game and the dragon fights never get old. It's only like 5 bucks anyway.

there should be a demo of heavenly sword on the ps store, at least there was a few years ago. also there was or still is a demo for lair on the japaneese ps store. i played the demo for heavenly sword. i thought it was quite good but never picked it up. the haze demo, now gone from the store i believe, was a joke
Feylynn  +   873d ago
I'm going to boil this 3 down to 1 and just say Folklore.
I don't think direct sequel is what to do with it, the first game was pretty definitively over. But a spiritual successor with a new story would be awesome.
SonyStyled  +   873d ago
i heard lair was actually quite good with duelshock controls. it never made me pick it up tho
r21  +   873d ago
i've got to try these games out when i have the cash :D even if haze was said to be crappiest FPS ever, i still have to try XD
Japes  +   873d ago
Nobody mentioned The Eye of Judgement. I still play that.
