New screenshots of the upcoming PS3 exclusive Heavenly Sword.
That's what I'll be saying this September, I own this game.
I have to say though that it looks way better in motion.
Small but sweet as always.
When u look at the lush scenery I fail to understand the comments from those morons at 1up about this game and all the fights seem to be taking place in an arena.
Anyhooo! I'm with you blueprint plan on being a proud owner/player come September.
I can't believe they brought out that old rumor of it only being arena. How can that be possible when they've announced snow levels, fighting on the water, and battling through tree tops, not to mention a level with 3000 enemies all at once. The game will kick ass!
any alternative sites with bigger, better HS screens? Arena fights, not open world? :(
There are no better screens than these ones.
Are stunning in these pics. Amazing isn't a way to describe them.
this game just keep on getting better and better
Looking mighty impressive :)
are you looking at bigger screens then me? i am not saying there bad or good but with the size they are it wont look its best.
(also i didnt press disagree)
I'm not too worried whether people agree or not :)
Nah I just made the best judgement that I could from the screen sizes... Maybe my opinion would be completely different if the pics were massive :P
As far as the game is concerned I don't really know what to expect. It's got some tough tough competition with the likes of DMC4 and NG:SIGMA but it has potential.
Do you own both consoles btw?
Heavenly sword is gonna be d shiznit. Loving the way the combat looks wasnt too impressed with the enemy A.I. hope they improve on that. Other than that this game definetly gets my 60 bucks. The waterfall environment looks beautiful too
and only 1st year ps3 game.. just amazing..
very impressive. =)
this game is amazing
it looks so good.!
lol, i agree with your title! bbbbiiiiiiGGGGGEEEEERRRRR!!!!! =D
fun, but too cartoonish.
every time i see screens for this lair and uncharted i cant help but to think that the ps3 will be giving us great things in the future
This game looks better than GOW.
Thats only true if you prefer slicing people to shooting them :)
no. it doesn't.
you mean gears or god of war..
and btw, that pic you posted right above me is truly not the best choice to represent the game...
The ORIGINAL GoW. lol Man seriously, using GoW is getting confusing.
the draw distance and scenery is looking great.
I do adore graphics, but unfortunantly the best thing i've personally seen that would make me want to buy this thing was a beta being played during a TV show (Heroes) I really haven't seen much else but that.
I do have to say that the whole idea just sounds awesome.
this game will rock hard!
screens dont look that good looks way better in motion like uncharted an ratchet
this is deffinatly going to be a game to look out for.
tho i HAVE to say it, what the hell is up with these pics?! its the size of a PSP screen!
we need big pictures to see the beauty of HD
They look awesome but damn we cant enjoy all that beauty on a PSP screen-size pic
yea game looks nice but i want to save larger picture.
hummm buttocks, rrrrrr, i'll be doing some serious licking on my monitor when this comes out, BUTTOCKS!!!i wonder if she's not wearing any underpants... rrrrrrrr nice! weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Wooooooooo...omg that looks unbelievable, small pictures or not. My god...this may have just jumped to number one on my most wanted games list. Bioshock, Mass Effect, Halo 3 and HS...it's too hard to DECIDE which one I like the most...I need to go play some god of war because its the closest thing I can get too playing this...now I'm sad, HURRY THIS GAME UP
Why do people always try to hate on this game.
It's fear u know
Who's hating on it?
there's no way the 360 can handle this
Your an idiot. Where is your proof. If you have none how about you um oh I dunna just comment about the game and not make idiotic claims that only your tiny insignificant mind can think up.
sweet I love the disagrees with never a rebuttal. Let me tell you how much better this site is with a bunch of closet people who disagree for no reasons. That's my assumption, if you can disagree and have no reason as to why...than you shouldn't disagree in the first place.
i agree. disagrees w/ no rebutals suck.
but also, its not i think "the 360 can`t handle this" (maybe not a single DVD). but i don`t think MS is creative enough to want to create games like these.
reply? cause i will respond either way. LOL.
I know. but i still don`t think MS wants devs.that do these types of games like this, it seems that way anyway. MS didn`t want Ninja Theory didn`t they?
calm....*breath deeply* Why can't you just let it go? Who knows....WHO KNOWS. But this game really is a technical feet. 4xAA, HDR, 8xAF....hair moving organically, great textures, fighting against 2500 strong armies.
Downplaying it is stupid (I know you're not Xbox360rocks), up-playing it by saying it is only possible on the PS3...is an understandable comment....because really this game being possible on any system is a feet in itself. Just ignore.
Truth Hurts: "but i don`t think MS is creative enough to want to create games like these." Sony is not creating this game (directly that is, they didnt design it and aren't doing the majority of the work) That's Ninja Theory.
*edit* Everyone wanted HS...and that is NOT exaggerated. Microsoft either wanted HS on the XBOX...because they wanted it NOW. Or they didn't want to give them all the money ($30million) OR they attempted to buy Ninja Theory and move them to the US...and Ninja Theory said f**k em.
I don't understand why all you people are going gaga over this games looks it's not as great as you people claim for the most part it looks average with great charector design OK art.
The 360 can't handle this? lol Pirates Of The Caribbean At Worlds End for the 360 looks on par; Ok it looks better, the game has really shaped up graphicly. The Ninja Girl goes have one of the better Charector designs in the industry though!.
i don`t even think you play games after sayin this looks "average".
wow, your probaly the only person in the world who would say that, but i guess thats the "POWER OF GREEN".
It's looking better and better each time I see it.
I was just about to pay a compliment and say how finally PS3 owners have something to look forward to, but then you say "there's no way the 360 can handle this", please watch the ;latest Bioshock or Mass Effect and tell me you still feel the same; just be happy you have a nice looking game for a change. Xbox 360 can more than handle this game. Halo 3 single player campaign will bury this and you know it.
i notice you said "campain mode" which means you don`t think the multiplayer looks this good, right?
you seriously think the HALO3 "campain" mode will look waaay better than the multiplayer. cause the multiplayer looks nowhere close to as good as this. which you already agree with.
"Halo 3 single player campaign will bury this and you know it." Grow up everyone. YOU WILL NEVER HAVE PROOF. You wont know whether the 360 can do the hair at the same time as fighting against 2500 strong armies....because it will never be playing Heavenly Sword...so just forget about it, and dont enter into a rebutal.
Ninja Theories developers have already gone on record saying that the 360 would choke on this game. They way the described the coding techqniues they have developed this game it sounds like even DX10 would have problems with it's need for a flexible archtecture.
xbots just get mad at the truth. hell even Adam (I hate everything PS3) Sessler finally said he has seen games he doesn't think are possible on the 360, and this was one of them.
No they didnt. But anyway
why don't you go to their forums and read the posts for yourself where they tell you that the cell rsx combo is doing things for this game that DX10 could never do. Unlike many kiddies here I go straight to the source and don't rely on biased third parties for information.
but I can understand that you want to keep your bubble count up, after all can't risk angering the 360 mafia...lol
I don't give a sh*t about my bubbles. "is doing things for this game that DX10 could never do." Once again they don't say that. They talk about the incredible things the Cell and RSX are doing, but being professionals, now where do they say it's not possible on other systems....that is only inferred by you.
In fact this is prolly the most excited about any game on any console coming out this year that I am most excited about.
Hopefully the gameplay is half as good as what the graphics look like. If it is I am sure it will be a winner. I believe this game is something like 4 years in the making so I am pretty sure they nailed the gamplay and story as well.
I think it would be a misstake to bring up HS and Halo. lol. Its funny how people still think what they slapped together to debug Halo 3 is reflective of the actual game it cracks me up when Sony fanboys claim the Beta will be the final design while im looking at earily builds of Halo 3 not the multi player Beta on my HDTV laughing at how you guys think this while i watching vids of earily build of Halo 3 that look much better than the Beta.(quality of pics very poor)
If your point is True which it probaly is.
Why doesn`t the same go for Heavenly Sword, let me guess it`s because this is the final build, right?
take a break and comeback tomorrow.
I think it`s safe to say we`ll have to wait for e3 to see how much adventure this action/adventure has.
I`m not gonna lie if it`s all arena battles i`ll be a bit disappointed, but w/ that being said i don`t think it will be.
@ POG (above)
don`t just disagree, say somthing if i`m wrong.
And I have to say that I was impressed at 1st until you realize that this is just a platform/fighter with a number of pretty backdrops and exellent cut scenes, now if they were able to get that levels of details into Assassins Creed then I would be impressed but the gameplay looks repetative; more like a fancy Soul Caliber then Ninja Gaiden. Anyway if you think the Xbox 360 cannot handle it then check this Mass effect video.
Great new Bioshock video
Bioshock's graphics and environments look insanely good.
What you are doing is called spamming.
Tudor's just trying to make a point by presenting videos of what he believes to more impressive graphics. He was baited by the "this can't be done on the 360" comment preceding his initial post.
As you wisely suggested and I now paraphrase: CHILL! Everyone, regardless of platform preference, has some great games coming down the pipe.
Yes, it can be argued that some games look better than ever, but without great gameplay, even the best graphically impressive game an empty husk.
One thing is certain: all 3 next-gen consoles have games with outstanding gameplay.
I'll end some advice for everyone: Live hard; play HARDER!
Heavenly Sword = Greatest Hit for SNE's PS3 once released, no doubt. I just wish she had more of a Beyonce, Shakira derriere. Sure would "take up" my replay interest. =]
Ah the very thin line between videogames and softcore porn :)
Gow - God of War
GeoW - Gears of War
Also, we are now getting the quality graphics....all we need now is quality gameplay.
But truthfully, not as good as I expected. There is an inconsistency among the screen shots; some look organic while others look contrived.
Some of the various environment elements have better textures than others in close proximity. Still, it looks to be a beautiful game.
If however, the gameplay is restricted to arena environments, as is the case with typical fighting games, then HS, for me, will lose interest.
It is nice to see PS3 fans have something nice to look forward to. As far as it being 'not possible' on the 360---that is highly doubtful.
Seen this trailer before??? :O
Thanks for the backup and understanding of where I am coming from. Thank you truthhurts...to reply to your comment I think your right. Because If I remember right Microsoft turned this title down, I don't think they see the creative genius in these games as Microsoft is obviously very american, hence all the shooters and war games on Xbox platforms. Anyways this still looks fantastic.
