IGN are far more impressed with Folklore though:
Let’s just end our commentary by saying that a great deal of the magnificence in Folklore comes from the little details: the serenity within a field of bristling flowers and cascading petals, or the charm of a stairway that rings with laughter when your character’s foot falls upon it – these are just a few of the many moments that may bring an awed smile to your face.
Unfortunately, though the game is very enjoyable to play, the menu load time, framerate, and level repetition issues can detract from the gameplay experience. But we strongly recommend that you don’t let these concerns stop you from playing Folklore. This is one of the best titles to hit the PlayStation 3, and its eccentricity and charm are undeniable. Unless you’re just a straight adrenaline junkie, don’t miss your opportunity to witness the poetry and magic of this ethereal hit.
Hmm I played the demo and wasn’t blown away by it. I still haven’t done Oblivion or FFXII yet so I don’t know if I need another RPG. Then there’s the 6 or 7 must have games due out for the PS3 over the next 3 months. I don’t think I will have the time fit Folklore in.
