two major problems with this game. first, the story is made up of loosly connected sequences and the ending is not that surprising. second, the gameplay is very simplistic. you get 4 attacks to use at one time. each attack is an attack of an enemy that you absorb and the battles do not play out as well as they appear in the trailer. also leveling up only gives you more hp which is a problem because as you get further into the game the enemies have more hp as well so you spend a lot of time pummeling your enemy with the same attack over and over, about 30 times or more sometimes.
Beware, it's a Mystery Game
Bought this game not really knowing what to expect, thought it would turn out like an action rpg with customization and skills and whatnot but was far from right. Do not let the price fool you. Lots of reading in this game, lots of story that I could not enjoy, reaching minimal expectations. Not my cup of tea.
this game is a perfict for any one who likes role playing. is the beginng i would recomand to play as ellen.
It's a very interesting game actually
Folklore was an early PS3 release and a modest one at that, trying to take advantage of the then popular siaxxus controls for it's game play mechanics. But that's not all there is to folklore. Its a story about a girl trying to find her past and a guy trying to satisfy his curiosity. This leads them into Netherworld/worlds on which the gameplay takes place. The story is a mystery and you play as two different characters to figure out aspects of the story. The gameplay is interesting as you use creatures that you fight in the world to attack enemies and it's not always clear who is most vulnerable to what. Sometimes it's simple problem solving and for others the game gives you interesting illustrations to interpret on what should work best. This game will show it's age but the way I see it this game will go down as a forgotten gem in years to come.
A Very Good Mystery RPG!
First, I would like to point out that I seen this game a few years back when the PS3 first came out. I said to myself when i get a PS3 I would get this game. It turns out this game was awesome! I just finished playing it and might I say a great cheap buy. You have two characters (Ellen and Keats) that is trying to unravel a mystery of stringed murders in a small sleepy town. In order to get the full effect of the story of the game I recommend playing the guy (Keats) story first then play the girl (Ellen) back to back. The reason why I say this is so you don't have that I don't get it feeling after playing each chapter of one character. The gameplay is very fast paced, but not difficult to play to all. The graphics looked beautiful on a HDTV, and the sound was perfectly fit for the game. The only real problem I had was the camera control when facing one boss, but that is pretty much it. A good game for a cheap price!
Ive heard this game is like a Darker version of kingdom Hearts, so i looked it up, it looks insanely good, im going to buy it later today
HIt or miss
This game is a hit or miss. I guess either you like it or you don't. the graphics where outdated it is something we would have seen on the PS2 even the ps1. I didn't care much for the switching players after completing the others chapter. To me that stuff is annoying. The cut screen is what made is PS1 ish, Reading text and no animation this is the PS3 come one!!!!!!! Would have been better if it was actual movie style cut sense like you see on the ps3 even the ps2 had them.
The story almost held the game together but towards the middle it started to be the same thing over and over, so I stopped playing and when i tried to go back to the game it felt like it was something I had to do and not something i was excited to do so I traded it in unfinished.
NO JUST NO DONT BUY GOT FOR X MAS PLAYED IT ONE TIME HAVENT TOUCHED IT SENCE
This game is really good for mystery-lovers. kids will like it too. the battles are engaging and fast as well
I love this game and it's one that everyone should buy. Before I even owned a PS3, we were borrowing one from my sisters friend. We rented this game from Blockbuster and we were hooked. We rented the game 3 times before we finished the game. After I bought a PS3 for myself, it was one of the first games I bought. This game has you on the edge of your seat with the story. You wont want to stop playing! The grapichs are awesome and you encounter uniqe creatues and worlds. A must have game for all players
