    The game definitely has replay value. You'll want to go back and finish every mission, smite every foe and look for every treasure chest.

    The feeling of “just one more dungeon” dominated our lives for the 3 days to completion. The engaging environment held our attention without much effort.

    An above average game, mainly due to its new and interesting game mechanics, and the ability to create huge messes is a lot of fun. However, where it shines in the fun factor, it is quite dim when it comes to graphics and sound.

    Overall, Folklore is easily one of the best PlayStation 3 exclusives to be found on the system yet.

    A very dry game. Not truly boring, but far from exciting. If you aren’t a big fan of Strategy RPGs, I’d strongly recommend giving the game a rental before buying.

    The title, although a bit short in the level variety, certainly is worth its price in other content, including one of the best senses of humor to be found in a game.

    The game is hilarious and even the cliché aspects are still fun. The Bard's Tale is an addictive and enjoyable game that RPG fans would be wise to add to their Christmas list.

    It dashes a bit of action-RPG into the classic Mario recipe with delicious results. If you're a more casual Mario fan, or just afraid of bruising your masculine pride, you might be better off with New Super Mario Bros., which should be out by the time you read this article.

    One of the biggest flaws with the game is the character voice-acting. For the most part, the characters seem to lack enthusiasm and come off sounding horrible.

    It's a quality game that can become addictive very quickly, and only loses a few points on replayability, linearity, camera controls and voice acting.

    Due to some minor flaws here and there, and the fact that game is too short, it's difficult to recommend it for anything other than a rental.

    Even though the game has its fare share of flaws (such as the slow-down I repeatedly mentioned), it also has several strong points that can easily make it a fun experience.

    While Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner - Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army is an overall solid game, fans of the series might be a little disappointed with the lighthearted story and mediocre action-oriented combat.

    Sacred made me forget how disappointed I have been with many RPG’s over the last few years, was wonderful to play, and provided many hours RPG paradise.

    With its unique sense of humor and style, Atelier Iris will more than likely appeal to fans of previous Nippon Ichi titles.

    Suffers from some problems, including minor camera trouble and some dated graphics. Still, these aren't major enough problems for me to not recommend the game.

    Could Pokemom Colosseum have been a much better game? The answer is definitely, "Yes", with the need of a better storyline, graphics and more features. Yet, I was impressed with what did make it into Pokemon Colosseum and that above all else I found myself having fun and enjoying the game.

    A great Adventure Pack, and it is an easy campaign to do and level fast.

    I’m not going to lie… this installment isn’t quite as good. Episode I had a few minor errors that I hoped would be fixed, and in some cases they were. But the game ended up leaving me unsatisfied. A pretty good game, but not as good as it should’ve been.

    Overall, Dreamfall: The Longest Journey features an excellent story with a large cast of unique and great characters.

    Hitman: Codename 47 does deliver a fair deal of excitement and suspense. The mysterious assassin, the stress on stealth, and a decent narrative make it well worth playing.

    It is short, but sweet. A few extra game modes add much to the replayability.

    While the game does a nice job of allowing the player to view Middle-Earth, it just doesn't seem to work well in other areas.
    • 72 Metascore

    It’s a bit on the short side, and the story wasn’t very well implemented, but the beautiful graphics, RPG depth and non-stop action more than make up for it.

    Had the jumping mechanism been tightened up, and the challenge of the game been enhanced a bit more so that the strategy for bosses did not become power-leveling, the game would have been just as great as its predecessors.

    It's not the deepest RPG out there, but it's still a lot of fun to play.

    If you’re a fan of action RPGs or just a gamer who would like to break out of the normal turn-based combat, then Tales of Legendia should be in your PS2!

    Another aspect of the game that proved a massive disappointment was the fact that all the game's boss fights were 1 vs. 1. Normally you have a party of 4 characters, so why change that for boss fights?

    A great example of how less-than-smooth gameplay can plague even the most interesting plot. Better design could have made this a classic. It is a tribute to just how well the story is woven that I kept hammering away at it, even while cursing the flaws and giggling at the funny combat sequences.

    The communitiy is huge, the forums helpful, and there are no hunts for ennemies around a barren wasteland.
