The game at least deserves an 8 in my book unless the final game is really weaker than demo and what is shown so far.

I played the demo twice now and love it. I cannot wait for this game and since it's less of what we seem to be getting all the time in the abrage of shooters, it's a refreshing turn for the better IMHO. This game is a muct buy for me and gets a easy 8.5 for its fun factor, great graphics, and controls that were easy to pick up.

Folklore is a type of magical RPG that not everyone will like. So, it's going to go under the radar of most gamers. I'm going to get it even though it's not a big title like RFOM or Warhawk.

And yes, I agree that six-axis works well with his game. At first I was making large movements. But then I figured outj that I just had to make small tugs on the controller and it worked just as good.

This is the kind of game that the critics give it a 7.5 but the gamers give it a 8.5.

I just hope it's 20 hours long and not 10-12 like most other games.

the demo was fun, but i always wondered if the full game would go further than the demo, or was that all there was to do gameplay wise. the story would have to be amazing to compel me to continue past the first chapter.

sixaxis controls were really coool.

PS: a 9 and a 5 are a little too far apart. im gonna wait for ign for this one.

IGN indirectly said that Heavenly Sword graphics and Halo 3 grahpics are the same. And you want to listen to them?

Synex4035d ago

I thought the demo itself deserved an 8 with great sixaxis controls to boot. Hopefully the game didn't do worse than the demo.

the game isn't gone gold yet? how can they review a game not even gone gold?

krackchap4035d ago

eurogamer and they played the jap version
now honestly if you are going to play a jap game that is so heavily story based a sort of hybrid rpg/action game and then give the game a 5/10 then god bless you.

Bathyj4035d ago

Exactly. No english in a story based game and he complains he's bored. Well FKN deeerrrr. That review should stricken from the record. These fukheads just want to hate. At least review the local version before you condem it. Imagine watching Schindlers List if you spoke no english and it didn't have subtitles.

"Two hours of boring talk, a bit of action, AND IT WAS BLACK AND WHITE. What a crap movie."
