  • Summary: When I looked at the pictures, I thought this game was going to spectacular but its an alright game with a pretty good story line. I wish during the cut scenes there would be voice there isn't. Only through the movie cut scenes. This game is alright but its enough to keep my interest.

  • Summary: i really like this game maybe becouse it remind me a lot of final fantasy games (havent been able to play it so long yet) i especially like tha fackt that you can try out both charectors in same game or just go ahead all through with one person. tho the thing is it not a game for people with delexia due to a lot of reading is in the game.

Great atmosphere, a unique setting and an entertaining battle system.

  • Summary: Only a few hours into this game but finding it very entertaining. Folklore is an adventure/action game set partly in an isolated english beachside village and partly in the fantasy/spirit world which lies just beneath the surface. A very unique and engaging atmosphere unlike anything I've played before with a good solid mystery tale (so far) as well as a really entertaining battle system.

An original take on the mystery / hack and slash.

  • Summary: Folklore is a great game that is not for everyone. It has a unique and vibrant art style that brings the world to life but a few navigational problems keep this game from becoming fully realized. The gameplay is similar to devil may cry in the sense that you have basic moves and abilities which can be later powered up by achieving certain objectives, all of the attacks you use are obtained by sucking the souls from your enemies, while this eventually gets repetitive it...

Fantastic story and combat, but repetitive story.

  • Summary: Summary: Must have for patient RPG+MonsterCollection fans. Hard to suggest to anyone else. I've spent an unreasonable amount of time, but I'm only two thirds of the way through the game. Know that to have a reasonable chance to beat the game, you'll need to go through every chapter with both characters. Basically be prepared to do everything twice, with slightly different dialogue. Defeating enemies will earn you a special ability.

Fantastic Game with One Giant Flaw

  • Summary: Here's a great way to start a review: Folklore is one of the most disappointing games that I have ever played. Read on if you want to find out why. Folklore's style is absolutely fantastic. This is the type of game that Neil Gaiman would envision on one of his really, really good days. The environments are colorful and dream-like, just filled to the absolute brim with wonder.

  • Summary: I want to make this quick. I have never written a review for Amazon but I feel like I must for this game. Folklore is exactly what I was looking for in a game. I love real time battles and I really needed something to quench my thirst for RPG's. Folklore has JRPG elements such as the walking around in town for answers aspect of JRPG's and it has innovative real time battles that utilize the usage of the SIXAXIS motion sensitive PS3 controller.

Folklore - RPG game.

  • Summary: I downloaded the demo from PSN and immediatelly got hooked up with this game. It has an eerie atmosphere, and it´s kinda dark (the main reason I liked, along with the music). It reminds me of a Tim Burton movie, which I consider very cool. The story is about a ghost village, and two characters - Ellen, a girl who is kind of introspective, and Keats, a reporter for a supernatural magazine.

Unique RPG

  • Summary: I decided to buy this game because it was one of the few on the PS3 at the time that actually looked to be much good in my opinion. For my PS2 I have games such as Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, .hack//, Jak & Daxter, Kya etc. Folklore will appeal to a certain audience I believe, not everyone will enjoy this game. It takes play I believe in Ireland, and revolves around a girl named Ellen and a man named Keats.
