Неожиданно увлекательная и интересная игра - с оригинальной боевой системой, премилой графикой и любопытным сюжетом.
Folklore - проект на любителя. На любителя выверенной, проработанной игры, красивой и необычной, увлекательной и глубокой. Но если вам важен внешний лоск, сюжет, герои, красивые ролики и очумелая графика, тогда лучше обойдите Folklore стороной. Этим она, увы, не радует.
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.
Folklore is not a straight forward RPG and it's also not your typical action game. Folklore is a unique blend of both and a solid game that shows just how powerful the Playstation 3 can be.
The key to Folklore's quality is that the game is endlessly rewarding - there's a constant supply of new Folks, quests and the ever evolving story is as good as it gets in video games; there isn't a stage in the game that we didn't enjoy playing through, and the difficulty curve is perfectly balanced.
Folklore, presenting a tale of legends, aspires itself to the status of a legendary game. Alas, the title is flawed by various shortcomings and poor design decisions, placing such grandeur beyond its grasp. But, however lofty its unfulfilled ambitions, Folklore is certainly not a bad game; indeed, it's a reasonably good game.
Folklore turns out to be one part boring adventure game, one part underdeveloped collect-em up, and one part standard dungeon crawl. The only aspect of the game that rises above the mundane is its technical polish and the vibrant creativity with which its imaginary worlds have been created - the vivid luminescence of the Fairy World, or the scratchy, Ian Miller-esque authenticity of the War World for example.
