That's unfortunate, but did they make any good games other than Folklore
(Still haven't finished)?
Folklore is overrated, very repetitive, most people love it just because it is a PS3 exclusive when there wasn't that much PS3 exclusives back in the day,
Majin is their best game, and very underrated, i have a feeling that it might have the same cult following as Beyond Good and Evil because its a good game that no one bought, you should buy it now before it gets out of stock!
Well folklore being repetitive is something very subjective. I am far into the game and so far I have enjoyed it and I think it has a great story. You can cry repetitive all you want but hmm lets see.....Mario games are all about jumping and running, GoW plume of prometheus your way through half the mobs, Halo, keep shooting and go for headshots (oooohhh a short space battle in Reach). Every game has a level of repetitiveness, I think Folklore has a pretty good story and the gameplay varies based on the Folk you end up capturing and which combinations you use and that is what makes it fun, so seriously stop crying "repetitive" cuz it seriously gets old.
Sure those other games are repetitive, but folklore has you play each level twice, once with Ellen and once with Keats,with barely any difference between both characters, and as far as i can tell, i think Keats really is just a side character, he just follows Ellen uncover her true self , while he looks around in the distance being all "i'm a freelance journalist lulz", i don't even know why hes in this game.
as for the storyline its Folklore's best trait, the more you play it the more the story becomes complex, the storyline is the reason why i kept playing the game to the end, not the gameplay, and also the fact that the creators are very inspired Faerie mytholigies that i've read a lot in books (great books i might add)
with that said i don't think the game deserves a 9.5/10 , thats just plain wrong, also the fact that most people think the game is an RPG is also wrong, its more like DMC than an RPG.
