Folklore Gets 9/10 From Play: An Enigma

Play's Nick Des Barres writes:
Game Republic's Folklore is an enigma. I'm going to tell it to you straight: It's a sensational game. I just don't think I'm equipped to parse exactly how sensational it is, and I may not be able to for several more years. Like many classics, it may require aging in the memory, like a fine wine, to truly understand. It's not that there's anything particularly revolutionary about it. To the contrary, you might call it antiquated: Just another Japanese action-adventure, evoking game grammar that goes right back to The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and Kid Icarus. Nevertheless, something tells me–or rather, makes me feel–that I've just played this generation's Ico.

just not for everyone, but if you liekd the demo, you will like the game. :)

Yes that score certainly is an enigma.

Folklore has 7.5 / 10

I know you SDF types like to post only the top reviews for PS3 title, but there is no hiding Folklore is *ANOTHER* failure.

Folklore isnt an enigma at all in the abysmal PS3 Library.

have you played it?

I enjoyed the demo. wtf are you talking about

DarkArcani3577d ago

Sorry, none of the games we enjoy require shoving objects in/up our various oriphices.

Some people like, it some people didn't, does that make it abysmal? Maybe for you.

For the others like me, we have a thing called taste.

I cant wait to play this game... Comparing it to zelda and metroid is an honor imo... I gotta agree with the Crazzyman...SLEEPER AAA HIT!!!

PStriple7033577d ago

lol can't wait for this game

BulletToothtony3577d ago

oh wait that's pretty much every ps3 game.. (except lair) there's a lot of sites giving some games 9's and even 10's and then there's the other sites giving games a 6 or a 7,

some reviewers play the game and like it, some reviewers are just looking for flaws.. either way, i just love the variety of games that the ps3 has to offer.. reaches a broader audience, which is the best thing for existing ps3 users

Armyless3577d ago

I like the way you put that. Nice.

amilimos3577d ago

... the word "variety" carries a lot of wieght. I agree with you a 100%. This "variety" is another feature that makes the PS3 stand out in my opinion ...
