Eurogamer reviews Folklore, score: 5/10

Folklore turns out to be one part boring adventure game, one part underdeveloped collect-em up, and one part standard dungeon crawl. The only aspect of the game that rises above the mundane is its technical polish and the vibrant creativity with which its imaginary worlds have been created - the vivid luminescence of the Fairy World, or the scratchy, Ian Miller-esque authenticity of the War World for example. Apart from that, it's totally average (and in case you're thinking of importing: if you don't read kanji you'll need a translator or to wait for the US/UK version, because the occasional - impressive - cut-scenes are the only bits in English).

I was hyped up for Folklore until playing the demo. Calling it average is actually an understatement. I don't know why I expected more from the guys who did thaose sh*tty ass Genji games.

first review was a 9, then they gave it a 6. lol!!! personally Ero gamer isn't that a relaible one if you have 2 rereview a game thats foolish.

I played the demo and I'm definitely looking forward to the game. It's not AAA or anything but it will likely score anywhere from 7-8.5 on Gamespot and IGN. These are the first previewers I've read that don't like it... By the way, Gamespot previewed the import 2 weeks ago and they LOVED it ;-)

everybody seems to be enjoying the little demos and previews especially, i already have the japanese version but i cant wait for the english version ^^ october 4th i get my RPG fix for this year

Lex Luthor3709d ago

i told you the game was sh!te, twice i tried to play the demo and on both occasions i fell asleep. no lie, seriously.

No wonder why the game flopped in japan. No offence but i didn't like it at all.
