I'm not going to say much because I don't want to give the experience away, but this game is awesome! Trust me. Great story, amazing environments, quality sound, superb battling techniques. Using the six-axis controls adds a whole new level to the battles, giving you the feel of ripping the souls from the very bodies of ghouls. Then you get to use their abilities to fight other folklore, and putting the creatures' abilities to the PS3 controller's action buttons makes for a quick and simple battle strategy. The cut scenes are intriguing and the voice overs are very good. You'll have a great time with this game!
At first I was a bit concerned about another linear RPG styled game, but after a few cutscenes and realms I was completely enthralled with the characters and worlds.
The story might be the biggest payoff to this game. The intricate plot gives you one look, then abruptly turns the corner, and again throwing back into another plot. Folklore is very well written. It makes you feel like you've just finish a game of Clue, and you realized it was the Butler with a candlestick in the library.
Graphics are fantastic. You don't noticed the detail to much, until you're wandering through a level and pick up the little details of grass, or tree, or water.
The only thing I wish for was more voice acting, and less text. The cutscenes would have been better, if completely voice acted.
All in all a great game. With the ability to download dungeons from the community and future DLC quests, Folklore will continue to perk my interests.

Ok I downloaded the demo to try this game out. it is wicked fun. You play as 2 different characters. Both with there own style of fighting. You collect the souls of the monsters you defeat and claim there powers as your own. You have a mana bar and a health bar. You use the six axes to yank the souls from there bodies. The more of a certain type you take some times it will upgrade there magic. Like more combo attacks or a stronger attack. Others you must collect items through game play to upgrade. The game play is fun and the graphics are really good. Not as good as Heavenly sword mind you but still very pretty. I would check this game out. If this game takes me longer then a week to bear I may buy it.
