Folklore is a damn good game in its own right. Visually, it's everything we've hoped for - even if it isn't exactly the RPG we all wanted. It's an "action-RPG" that tips the scales heavily in favor of the action. Outside of leveling up your abilities, there's barely any role-playing element, and in the end, isn't all that comparable to the likes of a Final Fantasy game. But you could do a helluva lot worse while waiting for XIII in the meantime, so don't hesitate to give it a shot.
