Folklore to re-write the PlayStation 3's software future?

Exuding all the rendered quality and storytelling prowess of Resident Evil or Silent Hill, the Gaia-developed adventure (brainchild of Shin Megami Tensei creator Kouji Okada) looks like a real-time action title that's packed with RPG leanings and takes an element of its battle inspiration from the Ghostbusters franchise.

Truly beautiful aesthetics ably showcase the PS3's graphical powers while the in-game design, battles, and atmospherics also appear to be little short of top-drawer.

Folklore certainly appears to be one to watch for those PS3 devotees eager to level the (currently uneven?) playing field against mocking Xbox 360 fanbois intent on writing off Sony's next-gen powerhouse.

Eurogamer review: 5/10
So I doubt it will rewrite anything.

They reviewed the Japanese version so gave it that score without even knowing what was going on storywise.

...Eurogamer??!! ...Eurogamer??!! Get updated around this mag. or get pwned.

Since they gave lair a 5/10 and is rightnow in chapter 11 situation, I doubt they can give anything to the gaming community.

They also gave Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition a 7/10, whereas other sites were giving it 9/10, and 10/10. Eurogamer constantly pour out negative reviews, so I'd certainly take anything they have to say with several grains of salt. They are hardly a reliable reviewer.

Folklore is set to be quite the title when it's released. You'd be hard-pressed to find a reviewer, besides EG, that thinks otherwise.

It's pretty fun to play, I tried the jap demo. Graphics are great. I bet it will get 8's at the very most. More than 5's though.

yea same here...

should be more then 5 atleast an 8.5/10 I would put it...

EDIT: they reviewed the Jap version lol thats silly if they don't understand it

By the way. No one is saying that this game is an AAA. It's more of a sleeper hit. Very good RPG that those that like fantasy games.

I've played the demo too. Everything is ok. I like the art direction! Great characters, animations and poses! But one thing annoyed me beyond bearable. The battle music. It's so cheesy and annoying IMHO, that I guess I'll have to skip this game. Ah, I also remember the last time the music ruined the game for me. It was the battle music from FinalFantasyX. I was playing that game, since I love FF, but every time I got into battle, I had to mute my receiver. Well, never again am I doing that!

That said, the music in FFXII was excellent and I have the soundtrack! It's fantastic!
