Here is a brand new 12 minutes preview of Heavenly Sword including a brand new gameplay footage. Source is French though.
I will buy this game when it launches. So far, am very impressed with what i have seen.
now I'm ready for a bubble:)
now i need the demo next week and then when the game releases i will get it...so excited lol
bubble for u Mercenary
i'm buying it day 1 man
Lovin all the attention this game is getting, keep the news comin!
Bubbles for all :)
Sweet* now, give us the demo ^^.
7.5 for presentation (too short)
8.5 for graphics (hasn't tapped true potential of ps3 yet)
8 for gameplay (trying to replicate god of war but not quite as fun)
7.5 for sound
6.0 for online(online is not a big focus of the game)
This is what I see from IGN
@ simone below;
It's an opinion simply that, Game previews are not to be trusted you should know that if you've played genji, untold legends.... again we shall see when it's actually reviewed whether it's a rent or a own for me not you, for me for me for me, not you...my opinion right?
7.5 sound (I agree)
Nothing is known about online yet so no comment...
I just logged in to disagree with you the envirometns are huge and beautiful looking, the gameplay is supposed to be really good and technical the deeper you go (many sites have said it's not a button basher game)...
the combo engine is entirely different also...There is a much larger focus on countering enemy moves than in GoW also...the three different stances, and the way that Nariko apperantly automatically blocks different attacks depending on your stance sounds wierd...and therefor...not at all like GoW...
not saying its more fun...None of us have played it yet...but it is definitely not trying to replicate any action game it seems...
Some people want online for the dumbest reasons. It could be Tomb Raider and someone would say "what??? no online??? why?! I want a map with 32 players in a deathmatch on Tomb Raider!" I can see for some additional content...but ALL games don't need online
GarageO.K. well I'm just going to enter to say your comments along with your scores are inaccurate.
The game is not too short at 12-15hours. Prince of Persia games entered at 10hours, apart from Warrior Within which reached 15hours - this felt very long for an action game. Plus you have games like GOW which reached 12hours at the most, in fact many single player games only manage to reach 10-12hours - Resistance, GeOW, Tomb Raider Anniversary.
Graphics - we have already seen in many previews that this game is the pinnacle of current presentation this generation - where Ninja Gaiden on the PS3 got a higher score for graphics than you have given. This game has some of the the best lighting in any game, DOF, 4xAA, 8xAF etc - and with the best cut scene models - you have highly underplayed it.
Gameplay I can't comment on - but I can see that since the combat in GOW was the worst thing about the game, this seemingly has a lot more depth.
Sound - you game no reasons for this - with some of the best voice acting ever in a game - an epic soundtrack of hours of music written by Nitin Sawny which reacts to you as you play the game - I doubt it would get 7.5 for sound.
IGN don't give a score for online - and I haven't missed it during my PS2 years, or my Tomb Raiders, POP's, GOW's, Ninja Gaiden Sigma... I can't quite think what kind of online experience would be expected off of a game like this as you stated.
... is what you folks bought the Waitstation for???
Bwa ha ha. Enjoy if this is what you like.
I'll enjoy Mass Effect, Too Human, and Halo 3.
Mass Effect & Halo 3 yes. LOL @ Too Human.
And you won't be enjoying either of those before Heavely Sword comes out. Those who only have PS3's will be on to Uncharted, Haze, UT3, Warhawk, etc by the time Mass Effect comes out. So really either way, they won't be missing anything on the 360. Having played both betas, I'm looking forward to Warhawk moreso than Halo 3 anyway.
k you do that Mass Effect is looking promising, Too Human and Halo 3 do not interest me in the slightest...
WaitStation? what's all that about grow up your not going to be able to say that for much longer are you, the games are coming soon and then it will be a continue flow from Sony...
Such hatred, ignorance is definitly bliss for you xbots, and what are you waiting for beyond those three games that wont be on ps3. MSG4? keep dreaming master douche
I guess you haven't heard the news about too human and the UR3 engine. Halo2.1 doesn't even come close to graphics as this game. The only people that think Halo looks good are the pathetic xbots who only have one system and try to justify the failure rate. This game looks fantastic, from the story, to the gameplay, design levels, animation, particle affects are top notch.
I can't say anything about Mass Affect because I haven't played it but from what I seen it doesn't look as good as heavenly sword. I have both 360/PS3 and that's my unbias veiw.
aren't *YOU WAITING for Halo 3, Mass Effect, and Too Human also?
funny how that works, huh?
sure, us Playstation 3 owners are waiting for more games, but holy hell look at all the games hitting the PS3 this fall that are looking rather fricking killer:
Little Big Planet (according to Phil Harrison, it debuts on the PSN this fall, with Blu Ray hitting in Spring 2008)
Heavenly Sword (i've already played this, and it rocks)
Lair (looking better each time i see it)
Folklore (very intriguing)
Ratchet and Clank Future (looking great)
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (looking great as well)
Warhawk (played the beta. awesome game)
personally, these reasons alone make me very excited to be a PS3 owner.
while i know for a fact that games like Halo 3 and Mass Effect and Bioshock are going to be *GREAT, the PS3 lineup is just more my style, with a nice, varied lineup, where you aren't constanly running around shooting sh*t and blowing things up. variety is the spice of life, and while i love a good shooter, that can't be *ALL that a console offers me.
unfortunately, i'll be *WAITING for the 360 to get more games that don't feature surly looking guys with big muscles "fragging" each other in incredible displays of masculinity and testosterone (god, i just sounded like my fiancee for a moment. eww).
i prefer rpgs and Action/Adventure games (like Drake's Fortune, and Ratchet), and the PS3 has those in spades.
also, the PS3 has been getting it's fair share of great shooters (i'll take 40 players, lag free on Resistance of 8 players, with horrible slowdown in Gears of War anyday), so i just don't have much of a compelling reason to pick up a 360, just like you don't seem to have a compelling reason for you, personally, to pick up a PS3.
in either case, your comments are foolish, as you're waiting for some killer games along with the PS3 guys.
irony at it's finest.
this is what rusgriem had to say about Peter Moore and Myself about 3 days ago.
"He should be praised and people who care about other people and not just their POS consoles should appreciate his watching out for his family, instead, D!CKHEADS like you come on here and make this about the infantile console wars.
I think mature users should start removing bubbles from those who have made this an immature console wars issue."
You be waiting a long time for that game lol!!!
Some of the most beautiful graphics and animation I've seen so far this gen, can't wait! The combat looks pretty fluid and fun too... I don't see them doing a lot of the cinematic blocks/counters though. There are over 30 of them in the game! I wonder how hard they are to pull off? Can't wait to see for myself :-)
I do not see the big difference between this and ninja gaiden. Aside from the enviroments and combos they are two of the same games. I am going to get it and I am sure it will be fun, but where is the inovation this game originally promised.
I don't understand your 1st point...
This can be said of any genre and of any game (just about)
"Is Halo 3 not pretty much the same FPS type game with different environments, story and weapons than every other type of FPS?"
The innovation will or will not shine when the full product is in your hands though..
All of this new news and game footage is kinda killing the game. It's like how everyone wants to know what happens on the Sopranos and 24 and Lost...by the time Heavenly Sword and GTA4 comes out, we'll probably see the whole game as much coverage and previews these games are getting...
ninja gaiden has not these slowmotion combatsystem - the first innovation. second - the damn looking hot redhead girl.. :-)
PS: the graphics are sweeter too!!
It was my opinion and I see no reason to snatch my bubbles because I am honest. I have a PS3 and a 360 so I feel I am as impartial as anyone else on here, now give me my bubbles back u a$$es. Also from the video I cant tell how much better the graphics are, I have not seen any HD video of this game yet.
This game is an evolution of the Genre. It is amazing the vision and quality of work from this development team.The story promises to be very well written and definitely gripping.
It is often compared to God Of War which is a good thing, but I also think it takes the notions of game play mechanics and artistic expression so much further.
As long as I get this game this year it will be worth the wait.
It is quite beautiful, and if the story is good I can go through the same hack and slash :)
as much as i wanted to watch that, i didn't! don't want to spoil anything!
i had only answer you, that had nothing to do with bubbles or something, just a NORMAL answer. so wtf??????
And everytime someone else plays it
It play differently !
This is the best one I have seen so far.
Thats it! I'm Sold, This is the game to Get
I like it
I don't care what anybody else thinks, I willplayitandseeformyself
The game play doesn't look as good as GOW but I'll buy it to hold me over until GOW3 comes out.NG:S is the shizznit right now!:)
These anonymous idiots that take bubbles due to the fact they dont like criticism. Anyways thanx for listening and alot of people need to let go of this PS3, 360 war. Its all about the common good for the gamer, as in lower game prices and more creative IP not my system is better than urs. Sorry to get off subject and game on.
This game owns and whats also cool is there are more titles from other developers that are also begining to tap into the power of the PS3. If you download the making of Heavenly Sword from Playstation store you can see all the hard work and effort they put into making it (i.e facial expressions).
Get ready mates here come the trash talking xbots.
@icdedppl I know whatcha mean I only watched a bit of this spoiler video.
Game On my PS3 Brothers!
God I want this game! three fighting styles and God of War like gameplay. I'm in, now I only have to save up 500 dollars before all the 60 gigs are off shelves and then I'll be forced to pay another 100 for an 80 GB model with a separate fee for backwards compatibility. F that, guess I won't be seeing the game.
The facial animation system looks fantastic (i.e. Narikos sister)! Those details make a gaming experience even more intensive.
they liked that the motion capture was fantastic, nice combos and beautiful environment.
They disliked the horrible dubbed voice for the French version of Flying Fox. Also there was some detection problem with recognizing an object and an enemy (she would go for the enemy instead)
And it is coming on September 12th in Europe.
by the time the game get's release. Those are little things and shouldn't be to hard to fix.
frenchys are anoying yo
I agree with an earlier comment, Sony seems to have a more variety, rather than a bunch of FPS. I'll admit, Bioshock and Mass Effect look good, not interested in Halo 3, Sony's lineup appeals more to me. Can't wait for this game. I think it'll be Sony's first real big game (still waiting on Lair) Heavenly Sword is the game I'm definitely looking forward to.
