Shame On You If You Haven't Played Folklore Folklore, developed by Game Republic and released in the fall of 2007, is a true hidden gem in every sense of the word. This fantastical murder mystery, built upon a combination of action-oriented combat, RPG elements and grand sense of adventure, was likely dwarfed in resources by the world's triple A blockbusters, but still managed to create a cohesive world within these restrictions, one full of gorgeous visuals, smooth and varied combat, and an intriguing narrative delivered in many ways. Folklore also achieved gem status by being largely overlooked when it was released in the notoriously competitive holiday release season.

This is one of my absolute favourite games on the PS3.

Seems like bad to decent reviews equals a no buy/play from most gamers nowadays. I can't even imagine all of the cult classic games that would've been missed if I follow that logic in the past generations (Dino Crisis, Oddworld: Abe Odysessy, Siren, etc).

It sounds superficial but I decided not to get it because of the lack of trophies :-p In my defense I did buy Valkyrie Chronicles sans trophies.

Also, I tried the demo and it wasn't my cup of tea.

Wife got me this for a Christmas gift two years ago. I put a good 20 hours into it, but just didn't care for it. I'm not sure why, but for me everything just didn't seem to click and the story wasn't enough to keep me involved.

I was very surprised considering this type of game is right up my alley (RPGs of all types).

With the community support behind it, though, I'm very surprised it won't see a sequel.

I never actually checked out Folklore past the demo that was on PSN.

It's pretty fun. One of the few games the uses the sixaxis well. And it has great design. Was actually thinking about playing it again just yesterday.

labaronx2741d ago

it is a real gem for anyone who hasn't played it..... hope for a sequel is seemingly unlikely
