I have finally beat this game and I just have to say that this is one of the best PS3 games that I have ever played. I could not have been more surprised considering some of the reviews that I have heard and read. You play as Nariko, daughter of the leader of your clan. The game starts out with you and your clan taking refuge in an abandoned fort, it seems as though you are running from an enti...

What can I say about this game. This truly is one of the most beautiful games out there. You play as the gorgeous Nariko who is gifted with amazing martial art techniques passed on to her from her father. You are blessed with the Heavenly Sword which gives Nariko amazing powers but is also killing her at the same time. You have to save your father and your village from the ruthless King...

There is so much to heavenly sword to like and there is so much promise. Heavenly sword is one of the first big titles to come out for the PS3 and was on a mission to showcase the power the PS3 can do. And by looking at this game boy, it can do a lot. The big battle scenes are some of the biggest you would have ever seen in a game with 1000s of troops on the ground with you hacking your w...

Heavenly Sword was a highly anticipated game in 07. This was mainly due to the similarities to the popular franchise God of War. Many believed that this was the next-gen God of War-style game we had all been waiting for. Unfortunately it didn't manage to please most reviewers and was awarded fairly average review scores. But here is one gamer who thought it was excellent this is my review:...

You start the game and after one level you’re dead. Now I knew this game was meant to be short, but this is ridiculous. Relax, it’s all alright though, you go back in time, and play through the events that lead to your untimely demise. I’m not going to lie to you; this is a shot game, with no multiplayer and one which features limited environments. However the experience, while it lasts, is an...

The first thing I did when I picked up a PS3 a few months ago was download as many playable demos as I could. I was very interested to see what was worth buying, what was worth renting and what was not worth even a second look. Heavenly Sword fell into the category of worth renting; only because I heard it was short and had no multiplayer or co-op. Heavenly Sword is the story of Nariko a...

Mode Played & Completed: [*Normal*] [*Hell Mode*] Acquired via: Full Purchase Time spent: Over 10hrs PRESENTATION: In taking into consideration that this is a first gen game launched within the first 10 months of the PS3's cycle, I'd have to give this game nothing less than top marks in this field. Everything thing from the menu screen and theme musical score to the delivery...

Heavenly Sword is a tale of a sword...from heaven o_o Story Long story short, bad guy wants sword, good girl gets sword to protect her people and then a bunch of random relatively uninteresting stuff happens in the middle. The story for heavenly sword is pretty decent but where the game stands out really is in the acting. The voice actors do an exceptional job of portraying their...

After purchasing a PS3 I decided i needed to look at titles that were available and exclusive to the system when it came out. Doing so led me to this gem. Reviewing an older game can be tricky. As time goes on we see graphical improvements and companies pushing what a system can do there. When i sat down with this game, I went in knowing it might look a bit rough. Perhaps because I was expec...

Throughout gaming history, man has been the dominant mascot for many gaming platforms; however, that doesn't necessarily mean we've been without strong women. The likes of Samus and Lara Croft were always held up to be to best examples of great lead female characters. With Heavenly Sword, it's not only safe to say Nariko can be held up to that pedestal, she can also be considered one of the P...
