Hit the jump to see gametrailers.com's Folklore video review (HD).
Design gets a 7? Compared to what?
GameTrailers is always good with the reviews/explanations and examples.
I feel the whole "DELAY."(less than a second) After loading lores was a bit overblown? It seems like when you compare this game to GOD OF WAR, removes you from the credible reviewer space.
The IGN/GT Reviews are identical. It just seems that the GameTrailer reviewer doesn't care for the Genre as much as the IGN Boys do.
the one second delay is hardly something to make fuss about. Don't know why they make such a big deal out of it.
The game is very unique and there's something to it that just makes you want to keep playing it. The game has gotten better reviews by others, it interesting to see why the gave folklore a low score.
There is wrong people reviewing games, unless there are shooters or sports (incl racers). Comparing to GeoW is just a confirmation of it.
IGN --a more credible website has given FOLKLORE a 9/10
I would rather trust IGN review than GAMETRAILERS.
we wait to see GAMESPOT's review as well . Although MS biased GAMESPOT sometimes award ps3 games with good reviews
"IGN --a more credible website has given FOLKLORE a 9/10 I would rather trust IGN review than GAMETRAILERS. "
Hahahahaha.... now IGN is more credible to you. Well until they give another PS3 game a bad score and then its back to IGN is sh!t, IGN is biased, IGN is ran by a bunch of xbots.
WTF!? Design and Presentation alone in this game deserve 9 and 10. GameTrailer has always been harsh on PS3 games (Check their Heavenly Sword review).
As someones opinion, but even then I find it hard. I don't care for halo, but I'd give it a 8.5-9/10 Because of how much fun it is, for the entire package.. as an FPS.
The Folklore demo was great, The design is amazing. I just want to know how they quantify that, and how HALO has better design than this truly creative well art directed game.
For one, I don't even think they played it.. Whats with the GOD OF WAR ref? Would you compare Kingdom Hearts to God of war?..
Ahhh, at last I did it! Is it good now? :D
AAA AM CONFIR....oh wait.... WAIT FOR UT3....oh wait again......WAIT FOR UNCHARTED, RATCHET AND CLANK!!!
will score high. No matter what. That's my prediction for you.
Sony boys were so happy this game got a 9.0 on ign. Rofl.
This game is not AAA and will likely flop in sales.
Edit: I've played the demo twice you stupid asshole and on both occasions fell asleep.
Stupid asshole. If you played the demo you wouldnt be saying that.
EDIT:fine then you just strange for hating on the ps3 for no reason. BTW why dont you reply instead of editing?
Well looks like you can add this "AAA" title to the failed list right next to Lair and Heavenly Sword. Damn the ps3 really doesn't have anything. :(
Heavenly Sword 81%
Wow, you sony boys do like crappy games.
It’s that people that review PS3 games have no taste. Sorry but when I look at the user rankings at GameRankings.com, most of the PS3 titles get around 80% or higher. That IMHO is pretty good. Good enough for a purchase to me. Besides, it seems fashionable to mock the PS3 still so you can expect all the reviewers to jump on the band wagon.
I guess Sony must not have handed out any 800-dollar goodie bags to the reviewers for their games…
"Wow, you sony boys do like crappy games."
honestly firstknight, do you smoke MS pole everyday?
You should pull off your head from Bill G @$$ and look around.
Sony doesn't give $800 worth gifts to get good review.
Gametrailers are [email protected]
oh, TheMART will love this news ... but he can't keep us from playing it ;-)
so is IGN's heavenly sword review accurate then?
What an odd review. He was praising the game throughout the whole video, saying it was original and beautiful with its only flaw being that the RPG element can be slow at times, and that insignificant loading time when switching lores, and then instead of giving it the 8 or 9 that it deserves, gives it a 7? On top of it all, he compared it to God of War? What does GoW have to do with this game?
I've never been one to follow reviews, being that my own opinion and the opinions of my good friends are the only ones I trust when it comes to games, but I just found this extremely odd and unfair.
vs GOD OF WAR ???
Forlklore is the most underestimated game this year for sure.. Gametrailers was a good site for reviews last year.. but this year I saw many non-logical reviews from them like HS and this one..
just see their Resistance reveiw, they see all positive and negetive points of the game and gave it 9.0 or 9.1 ( dont remember which) same for Gears of war ,they saw all sides of the game..
but now they using BS logics for their statements.. Folklore has Fun gameplay,many hours of gameplay(at least 20-25 hrs),AMAZING design and presentation , lovely story and awesome graphics and animations..
it deserve AT LEAST 8.5 or 9 .. 7.2 is really unfair..
for Guys dont believe my words.. just see DESIGN SCORE for Heavenly swrod ... if HS had ONE REVOLUTIONARY thing it was DESIGN .. but gametrailers gave HALO3 design 50% more score than HS ..
most FUNNY rating ever made..
WoW.... just when I thought I had seen the last. Thought it was safe to rest easy again. Im going to have to make a come back to N4G. (Troll Stomping is back in town)... Now why must you guys troll PS3 games non-stop.... Not impressed with Microsofts 1 trick pony tactic. They just played there biggest card.... Bored of Halo 3: finish the console already. Or was your console already finished before you popped the disc in. Or maybe you didnt even pop the disc in cause it was already scratched beyond recognition. /Rant
( I only do this to get under the Diehards skin) I could give a raz-tazz about the xbox360 or how good/bad it does. If i game i like comes out on 360. I'll play it.
So FirstKnight T.... my god your lame. Still havent convinced yourself that you made the right choice buyin a 360. have you? Still need to troll and bash to feel at ease with your choice. Pathetic dude.
We all know and we have all seen. PS3 and 360's rating trends are on 2 different levels. The only logical conclusion is PS3 and 360 games are graded on 2 different scales. I pull out my best example.
Heavenly Sword.... is a phenominal game. Its a little short but in all honest thats the only real complaint. ala "Gears of War" Style
Lair is also a very good game. Graphically impressive and very innovative. Yet those games where butchered by reviewers. Every site hopped on the bash PS3 games bandwagon and I honestly believe its for publicity or more hits.
Halo 3. Wow. Where do I start. A good game. Yes. Would not deny that. But my god is it plagued with problems. Complaints range from
Low res textures, last-Gen graphics, Boring Campaign, Short Campaign, Frame rate issues,not to mention the case of the "missing Pixels" and the dammmn thing bricks consoles. Yet lets all hop on the hype bandwagon and give it 9's ...even 10's across the board. Wow. That game is honestly mid to high 8's at best.
I personally believe the reason its done is because with the 360. They are only expecting $299 dollars worth of game quality. While with the PS3 they are expecting a whomping $600. So basically reviewers aren't even views the console in the same class. That would make more sense.
I've always noticed reviewers complain about particular PS3 games not being $600 games, as if the inclusion of the Blue Ray Player wasn't part of the PS3's price. That's like complaining that there aren't enough $2,000 games available for state-of-the-art Alien Towers! Does any reviewer complain about the 360's lack of $400 games (which is STILL a lot of money)? No. And it didn't even have an HD-DVD player in the beginning of its release.
If you ask me, if reviewers want to use money as a basis for rating a game's quality they should take off $300 off the PS3's price to account for the Blue-Ray Player then make their statements. In the end, they'll realize that these games shouldn't be penalized for their unrealistic expectations.
you woke up and smelled the sh!t from your own nose. Welcome back GayMr it's been a while, it will be nice to pwn and to see you pwned again and agian like old times. Will your comebacks be the same as they used to be? you know repeated over and over with a buch of words like "snitches, retards and c0cks" you realy like that word c0ck don't you? or LOL is it you like c0ck altogether? LOL welcome back GaYmR join the fight (your losing fight that is)
P.S. your still a lier "droid"
its starting to look too obvious... specially after the Halo 3 ton of 10's fiasco...but the PS3 its starting to flex its muscles and everybody its noticing. They wont be able to hold the PS3 down much longer, and i think that within 6 months the tide will completely change...
PS. And its actually funny cause i just started playing Resistance again and i laugh so hard at how Resistance is such a more complete game that Halo 3...Graphically (Actually runs at 720p with no jaggies), Storyline, Online Options etc etc...
chanto, you say THIS gaming site doesnt want the PS3 to outshine the 360!! its not this site its all the other sites because this site just reports all the news, but... if the PS3 WAS outshining the 360 there would be no other way to look at it, but thats the thing, the PS3 isnt outshining the 360 so how can we make it out to be!!
then about RFOM graphics, even though it does run at 720 you cant tell me that RFOM looks better than Halo 3!!Halo 3 doesnt have the BEST graphics but they look better than RFOM!! an I'm not even gonna comment on the better story you think RFOM has!! COD2 with aliens LOL!!
I will admit that I think sony games are on a different review scale than 360 games, but its sonys fault that its happening!! they sold their system up so HIGH with lies, promises, an fake CGI that thats what people was expecting from it, an when they didnt deliver thats make the reviewers that much more harsh!!
Seems like a truly uniqe game, i rely loved how u use the sixaxis in this game. To bad gametrilers cant see this game for what it is, but who realy cares.
This unfortunately is not my cup of tea.But i did enjoy the demo and if the final version is anything like that then this game deserves a 8.5 I.M.O
well almost a AAA...keep trying
Isn't going to be about quality, but rhather what the dev team has worked on before. Killzone liberation was getting 5's and 6's that weren't worth what they received, simply because guerilla games was making this game. I don't mind that the scores will be different but it truly sucks, that reviewers in some cases will review the game according to gamerankings.com, or their last game. This is what makes me sad.
I give ign credit, I stated how they didn't have guts to rate a game worthy, but found out I was completely wrong. It is truly sites that are trying to get up the ranks that review the game according to what the gamers want, like gametrailers. Amazing gameplay, isn't as good as god of war, amazing story, graphics are amaing, 7.2, because gamerankings score is in the 70's.
It does not matter. You guys don't buy games anyway. I remember in 06 when Gears or War launched and killer all in sales. Sony guys said it took the 360 one year to get a game in top sales. The 360 had games in the tops in sales the whole life span of the system. The PS3 has not. I think that the blu-ray feature is attracting movie watchers that have no plan on buying games. Just look at the charts and see. I will keep saying it until you guys prove me wrong. Sony guys need to buy games.
But I'm gonna wait, read some more reviews and try the game myself before I judge it.
Hey Jenzo, I've seen your posts before and figure you're a bit of an RPG fan. Folklore mixes RPG with action and does so extremely well. I don't know if you have a PS3 or not but if you do, download the demo. Unfortunately the older demo (that's not available anymore) was possibly the better one but the latest one gives you a small idea of what's to come.
I loved the demos and will be buying this the day it comes out (next friday in the UK I think) it's fun, highly playable and if the Japanese version is anything to go by we'll be seeing a LOT of DLC. (New ID's, costumes and quests) If you are a fan of RPG's I think you'll like it.
I have a broken 360 that's in for repairs (my avatar is a photo of when I got RROD) but no PS3. There are some games coming out that I'm excited about, Folklore looks to be one of them =) At the moment I'm just a poor student, so I'm gonna have to work extra and wait for a price drop before I can get one. I love action rpg's though. Not to flame or anything, but the rpg I'm most looking forward to playing right now is Mass Effect. It also mixes action with rpg, which I like a lot.
Thx for the info!
Haha, saying that you're waiting for Mass Effect isn't a flame! (although to some people here it probably is) I played the KOTOR games but never managed to get into them although I've LOVED biowares previous baldurs gates games, ice wind dale and Never winter nights. My favourite being Baldurs gate 2.
But Mass Effect does indeed look incredibly special. I'm personally hoping they make it substantially different from the star wars games and if they do I may well pick it up myself (with a 360 of course!)
Yep, I liked Jade Empire better than KOTOR. Although one thing that I found annoying in both were the tremendous amounts of unnecessary text you had to sit through. I ended up skipping much of it and at the same time missed some of the story elements.
Heh, forgot Jade Empire. Someone bought it for my birthday this year on the original Xbox but at the time I was playing FF12 (which I'm STILL playing lol) then I bought my PS3 and haven't really thought about the game until now. Will have to check that one out.
Too many games, not enough time!
So true. Since I study a lot I tend to purchase "quicker" games. I started playing Oblivion, but if you don't play it for a while you have to relearn all the basics the next time you pick it up. Which is a bore. I also wish they had made the levelling system static and not dynamic as it is now. It kills the freedom when you have to level skills in a certain order to get the best stats.
I've been playing rpgs since Phantasy star 1 on Sega Master System but the only game I can think of right now is PGR4. I played it at a friends yesterday and was amazed by how fun it was. Looked better than I thought as well. But what got me hooked was actually the "lack" of options =) No customizing etc. Not tons of stuff to figure out. Only cars and racing. I sense that many gamers demand too much options and not enough gameplay =)
lol! I feel ashamed really, wish I had more time to play deep rpg's. They are just so damn hard to put down.
Also, Uncharted looks to pick up where Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb left off (which is meant as a great compliment). If I were you I'd check it out.
ill wait and see what gamespot gives this game. if they give it a score of 8.5 or higher then i wil pick these game up because i enjoyed the demo the demo.
then get the game. I get games of demos I like. In the end it's about what you like. Screw gamespot.
I agree'd with you Funky Town_TX, I really enjoyed the demos, so couldn't really care less what the reviewers say. It deserves between an 8.5 and 9 in my book and am looking forward to it's release next week.
After all, who knows better what kind of games you like other than you yourself?
Let face it. PS3 game are always going to get mixed scores for a couple of reasons.
One is people still just love to hate on PS3 or Sony for whatever reason. Maybe cos they promise alot, Maybe just cos they've been on top so long. I dont know and I dont really care anymore. I'm more interested in my own opinion these days cos reviews are becoming increasingly erratic and irrelevant.
Another reason is because PS3 has so much potential reviewers are raising the bar unreasonalbily high. No console shows everything in the first year and they're also blaming PS3 for non being as successful against PSone and PS2 but neither of them were instant successes either. It took time.
It just seems PS3 games and Xbox games aren't being judged on the same level. Its almost like 2 brothers one good, one bad being caught smoking. The parents say to the bad well thats typical go away I'm mad at you, but to the good one they say what were you thinking we expect more from you, you're the good one, thats not good enough. Not a great anecdote but I think you get my point.
I disagree... owning all three consoles. I don't feel that one console's games are being unfairly judged over another.
I also think erratic reviews are a good thing. People have different game preferences so why not have reviewers with their own preferences. I do think people focus too much on the games final score and don't actually read/watch the review.
And the excuses continues...
Looks like sony need to send out some more of those "Reviewers guides"
if gamespot gives it above 8 am gonna agree its a good game. RPG's arent really my thing but the game looks decent. The only thing i thought was lame was the comic style cut scenes or whatever. The voice acting wasnt too bad i have heard worse. They should have just voiced everything over instead of making me read those long comic style cut scenes. This is the only major flaw i can find with the game. All in all that review was pretty harsh they could have at least given them points on something. And the loading time comment was so stupid when the load time is like 1 second thats jst hating
I doubt lex luthor owns a ps3, i'm not doubting he has access to it, maybe it's his brother's or his dad's, but it aint his.
WTF the demo was excellent it should have like 9
Wow those were somewhat harsh scores. While I was surprised by the 9 that IGN gave it I'm even more surprised by the 7. I was thinking low to mid 8s for this game so I guess they average out. He was awfully picky about some things though. I liked the demo so I'll pick it up.
