PS3 Exclusive are simply the best
The graphics clearly are the best you've seen so far until Metal Gear Solid 4, of course. Story is a decent enough length to enjoy but game play will blow you away. The fighting system is a huge step up from God Of War. Fight between three different styles similar to that of Devil May Cry and you can easily switch between them during battle by holding L1 for range attacks or R1 for heavy attack, or fight with speed without pressing either. Special attack with O while in any fighting style but specials must be built up. Counter attacks are incredible but must be timed perfectly. The SixAxis brings PlayStation 3 to a whole new level. Experience sixaxis like never before with free controlling movements of arrows or any weapon you can shoot or throw. Only on Playstation will you enjoy the fast paste touch-button fighting system throughout the game. It's a must buy for all PS3 owners. Heavenly Sword #1 Action game for and only exclusively on PS3. Enjoy!!!
God of war with a girl
I bought this game because I loved the demo. It's an interesting game because it starts off at the very end of the game and a huge climactic battle and then you flash back to the very beginning which was 5 days ago. The fighting is similar to God of war but with a twist. You switch styles seamlessly without any interruptions of attacks. She has 3 different attack styles: power, speed and range. Each is good for fighting different enemies. The only thing is the game is rather short but the action is awesome. The sixasis is used right in this game for controlling projectiles. Takes a little bit of getting used to but well worth it. Also every once in a while you meet a boss with unbeatable boss syndrome, but eventually you figure them out. The game looks gorgeous. Hands down this is one good looking game. Action is nearly nonstop, the story would make an awesome movie, and the main boss really makes you hate him. This is a definite must own or at least must beat for the ps3.
I WANT MORE!!
This games was awesome. I really wish they would do a sequel of some sort but I don't think it's going to happen. This was the very first game I bought for my PS3 and I still love playing it. If you like adventure, sexy women, and great graphics - Get it!
This is more than a game, its an experience like none other! First off it has the most smooth and flowing (and AMAZING) combat out of any game that I have played! The graphics also are probably the best i have seen and i have yet still to see better! The game is like a well directed movie because the cut scenes are perfectly voice acted and the characters movements and actions are astounding! Also all of the cut scenes except for the one of the first and the last are not pre rendered which also impresses me onto another level of being astounding lol! The only con of this game is that it is around an 8 hour game for one play through but it is the most amazing 8 hours i have ever had with a video game!
This game is a classic.....
This game is a classic and it is one of Sony's best games....... The gameplay is straight and the graphics is sick..... If u have a Playstation 3, this game is a must have.............
A cinematic experience
This game is slightly and almost perfect due to its' amazing breath-taking graphics (keep in mind this game was made in 2007 and the graphics beat games that were made in 2011). The fighting scenes were smooth, a bit difficult. The controls are also a bit difficult, it just needs some getting use to. The voice acting is amazing, it's realistic. The most important part thing is that the story mode. The story line just attracts you, some games just make you want to skip through them because theyre just uninteresting and boring. Not this game, this game just attracts you to play it more and more. The soundtrack is also beautiful, so are the scenes. The downside of this game is that it's definitely too short and the cameras really irritate you after a while.
Fantastic!! Emotional!! Fun!!
This was one of my first ps3 games i bought, and I dont regret the purchase. The pllot and the story in this game is very deep and moving. It will have you playing the game straight threw without putting the controller down. The graphics are one of the best i have seen on the ps3, for the time of this game being released. I only wish the game was a little bit longer, but it's still worth picking up.
Potential, But We'll See
I downloaded the demo from the Playstation Store, so my opinions and "review" are based off of that. From what I can tell from the 5 minutes preview, this looks like it could be a pretty entertaining game. The graphics look pretty good, the controls are fairly simple and the gameplay seems to be action-packed. However, this definitely smacks of a button-masher. Because the battle sequences are so fast paced, you have little time to do anything besides mash your attack buttons as quickly as possible at the hordes of attackers rushing at you (granted, some of the combinations you find are pretty neat.) If that ends up being the case throughout the entirety of the game, I could see it potentially getting boring and repetitious. From all I can tell, it seems have potential: potential to be either a fun, action packed adventure...or a repetitious button-mashing fest. But we'll see...
The Playstation 3 is showing its true colors!!!!
Listen, as a true PS3 fan i am unfortunately going to say that xbox 360 is doing a lot better compared to the PS3. But Heavenly Sword will help PS3 greatly not to mention Lair and Warhawk. I mean xbox 360 has been out a lot longer and they now have their killer aps (gears of war and Halo 3). But PS3 is coming out with their killer aps as well (MGS 4 and Killzone 2). Yeah sooooo when these games come out there will be a huge variety of games to choose from. Yeah xbox 360 has a variety to a certain point. most of the games are also on the PS3 like rainbow six vegas, OBLIVION, all the sports games, and soon even GRAW 2. i MEAN PS3 is going to have a lot more exclusives then xbox 360 like Heavenly Sword, Killzone 2, Lair, Metal Gear Solid 4, Warhawk, Uncharted Drakes Adventure, Ratchet and Clank, and home which will maybe be a competition to x-box live. Just wait and see...
I rented this game and wasn't expecting to have quite the amount of fun that I've been having with this game. There's an abundance of combos, counters and special moves, and the game does a good job of giving you slightly new moves as you progress through the game. The parts of the game where it involves button presses, which are rare, are well implemented and fun, though very short, sequences. Kai's bow and arrow bit leave a bit to be desired, but using the sixaxis to control her arrows make it not as bad. Storyline is really on a high level, the dialog is a bit quirky but you can really feel the emotion built up in the two female characters. Some of the enemies are a little too cheesy though. I think of the two female characters Kai is the most interesting, she's clearly losing it but has a gentleness to her that works a bit better than Nariko's 'nobody loves me' attitude, though they both work in their own ways. What this game is, above all else, is a fun ride from start to finish. At least rent this, and it's not as hard as the other reviewers imply, there's some adjustment to using the sixaxis, but it's not THAT hard to get used to.
