Given that the Playstation 2 was once the mighty home to all things RPG, the PS3 is going through a bit of a dry spell. But we understand, the system's still in its salad days and probably doesn't want to embarrass itself by porting something unworthy of it's $600 prowess. So is Folklore going to ease the agonizing wait between infinity and a Final Fantasy game? Well the answer is: sorta, kinda, maybe and for the most part, not really.
The best thing up Folklore's sleeve is the massive arsenal of beasties at your disposal. You could hardly call it a hack-and-slasher because your primary weapon is, well, everything. Nearly anything you can kill you can also embody, allowing over a hundred different creatures, machines, and otherworldly beings with which to dole out pain.
