Product description

Product description

(Region free, Full English language, will play on any PS3 console system)

Exclusively for the PLAYSTATION 3 comes a new dark adventure full of wonder and mystery. Two strangers are drawn to the mysterious town of Doolin, where it is said that the living can speak to the dead. They soon learn the town serves as a gateway to fantastic worlds that exis beyond our own, realms full of creatures, fairies, spirits and monsters. In order to solve the mystery of the dark, foreboding lighthouse that stands at the towns edge, the pair must journey through these worlds to discover their secrets.

  • Battle monsters and creatures and ultimately collect their powers. As players harvest these powers, they in turn can use them against other monsters in battle, thus getting stronger with each monster they capture.
  • Play as both characters, Ellen and Keats, and watch as their separate tales intertwine. Each character has specific talents and gameplay styles: Keats uses traditional direct attacks while Ellen uses strategic methods to trap her enemies.
  • From the colorful Fairies to dark Spirits, each creature is painstakingly designed to inspire wonder and amazement.
  • Much like pulling fish out of the water with a fishing pole, the PLAYSTATION3 SIXAXIS wireless controller lets players literally shake their enemies into submission and yank their powers from them.
  • Design custom Folklore dungeons and share with players online. Populate your levels with creatures you collect during your single player campaign!

Amazon.co.uk Review

Launch games for new consoles are often given far more leeway than others, simply because everyone recognises they haven’t had as long in development. Genji: Days Of The Blade won’t be making any one’s top ten lists by the end of the year but with their second game Japanese developer Game Republic have made some improvements. Set in Ireland the game has an unusual storyline involving fairies and other monsters of significant scarier proportions. You take control of either the rough and ready Keats or the more tactical Ellen, with the chance to switch between either character at the beginning of each chapter of the game.

At a basic level it’s a sort of action role-player as you spend time in town talking to fairies before venturing out to capture monsters, Pokemon style. In order to capture a monster (or "Folk" as the game has it) you have to soften them up with normal attacks and then reel them in by flicking the Sixaxis upwards like a fishing rod. If it works you’re then able to call upon your newly captured critter for help by mapping them to a face button. Different Folks have different abilities, such as flying or creating magical shields, and you often need specific types to overcome particular enemies. .
