This is the Heavenly Sword demo that came out 7/26/07. Enjoy!
I'll go download that.
This is pathetic, at least you don't have to buy the 60$ version since the whole experience is in the demo. And all around me are PS3 fans making excuses for the game before anyone even bashes, because you know.
Hack, slash, hack, slash. This game has nothing more to it than what you get in the demo. Unlike other real games like the ones you listed Machone, you must be retarded, only retards say sh!!t like you and think you didn't just prove how pathetic you are. MACHONE is A CHILD RAPIST, check his real name with the sex offender registry before he deletes it.
Halo: point, shoot, point, 'nade.
Madden: Pass, run, pass, tackle.
Gran Turismo: Turn, brake, turn, gas.
See? I can do that, too.
If you were trying to make a point, you failed.
if your seriously a lesbian please post pics....unless your one of the butch types that wear flannel.
IGN: "We are happy to say that Heavenly Sword is not a button masher in any sense of the word, since your opponents block vigorously and often gang up on your solitary heroine. In fact, the game feels rather unique to me, since switching between Nariko's three stances (speed, ranged and power) and taking advantage of aerial combos and Superstyle moves requires a lot of concentration and planning
Theory was kind enough to start the demo off on a small, isolated cliff edge, so you have room to grow accustomed to the combo system. A system that is intricate, challenging and stunningly gorgeous. Every strike and technique at Nariko's disposal is pristinely animated and the sound effects are thrilling"
the other stances and barely any special moves. Still great though. I've been playing it over and over. Can't wait for the full release.
Yeah he was button pushing so much the camera was shaking. You can beat the demo in 5 minutes or less if you know what you're doing. Block, counter, mid-air combos, stab downed enemies on the ground, and superstyle after the column falls down. I was thinking not being able to jump was stupid, but it makes you use your other moves more and use your special moves...not complaining on that part
but the guy playing is kinda bad, he doesn't do the game justice.
i was a lil disapointed with the demo, seemed repetitive
i think it is because u didnt utilize the stance and combo moves. If you are killing one enemy at the time, yeah it will damn repetitive.
itching to play it
After playing it, that itch is only gonna get worse!
Good graphics and great physics. Gameplay seems kind of lame and uninspired though. It doesn't seem to have good "bones".
games like this are all about the player, and how good you get with the combat system. God of war and ninja gaiden would probably look pretty uninspired too if you only used the standard weapon combos with no tactical or special moves too.
You can hear those bones crack when you do a great combo. Particularly since the sound is also awesome. First game-demo that made me look behind me : )
Fighting games just aren't my thing, I guess. I'm still really impressed by the physics though...tons of nice little attentions to detail. Thumbs up to the developers.
This guy sucks.
He doesn't even do any Finishers, he needs to learn how to counter right, the way he plays makes it look repetitive, what an idiot...
This game roxxors my boxxors. Can't wait for it!
Use the aerial combos - they rock. Use all the stances, if you get surrounded use the range stance - if there's lots of guys with sheilds use the power stance - mess around, pick bodies up - use special moves. There's like 50 combos, and mix them up with the stances - infinite fun.
Short,but f*cken sssssweet! I can't stop playing! Pre~ordering this gem yes I am ;)
"...and it was good." Wow, I've been waiting for what seems like forever to get my hands on this demo! I'm blown away. I musta played through around six or seven times already. Sure the action is a little repetitive, but keep in mind, this is about five minutes worth of action. They've already showed and talked about in numerous videos and interviews that there will be various mission structures (like defending a base with a cannon) and a second playable character, Kai, that acts very differently than Nariko. Plus, the combat system is extremely deep and offers just enough of a twist on the normal formula to separate itself from games like God of War and Ninja Gaiden. And with production values off the chart and a story that's sure to match -- I seriously cannot wait to get this game!
I hope i get it today, meanwhile i'll play some Forza
this game is holy fvckin amazing. animations look movie-like and the fighting system is one of the best i've ever seen - even better than God Of War - and that is without all the combos that you'll have in the final version of the game.
everybody who says this game doesn't look good is obviously a fanboy or he doesn't like these kind of games from the start. for me, this is one of the first, true next-gen experiences, besides Gears, Motorstorm and GT HD (graphics wise).
Bring it on NT ... can't wait to play the game.
and now back to demo .. the whole night.
I just got done playing it. It was awesome, but did anyone think it was weird that you can't jump?
dont want to spoil Downloading now
I honestly think if you are going to try and video your own gameplay try not to use a 25" crappy TV and suck at the game you are playing lol. Much much better releases on Youtube already if you want to see a better vid.
PS. Not trying to be a complete hater and bash it, but wondering how this got approved when people were linking 10x better Youtube videos before.
How hard is to press the x button during hero mode??
I was rooting for him to make it at the. it was close but he did it.
I should i died the second time around(but im practicing the air combos so it left me open using range mode.)
i just played the demo and it seems to have more depth in gameplay than god of war... however i wish you could jump and stuff... that technical aspect of god of war seemed to break the manotany of the game up... however the actual moves and stuff for HS are better in my opinion. This game looks fantastic, nobody can deny that. I cant wait for september.
My pre order is going in next pay day.
didn't get what is truely to come.
i seem to remember the devs saying another team was making the demo while the main devs finished the game.but the demo is already an indicator of "awsomeness."
for those saying it's repetitive,did you play with the bazooka and commit "massive damage?"
did you play with the cannon as the opposing forces came charging towards the palace or fort?
did you play as nariko's sister as she snipered enemies from afar.
if you're judging this game on just a 10 minute tease,and button mashed your way through thinking it was god of war,then this game.....ISN'T FOR YOU.
i can see some people not liking this game just like some didn't like ninja gaiden,DMC,way of the samurai,bujingai,blood will tell,castlevania:LOI,etc.
but there are gamers that see this game will smoke come september.
This is a hack and slash game no matter how you cut. Every system starts of with one. Ain't no stances in the world will change that.
Oddly enough the character models in the beggining don't look as impresive as before. Anyways this is only going to be a rental at best.
I play it though if i own a PS3.
you HAVE to play it, watching this video isn't going to change your mind, PLAY it. You can't play it like God of War or else you'll get your ass kicked. You have to pay attention to every enemy and every stance and block and counter everything the right way or else you'll sound like the guy in the video, "hehe i'm about to die". If you think this is a hack n slash, i guess you also think games like virtua fighter, dead or alive, and tekken are push-button fighting games. You CAN just push buttons but that doesn't mean you're supposed to do that and it takes all the fun out of the game...
Gamee looks like N3 for xbox 360 with better graphics but same repetitive gameplay.
A freehand filmed take from a nice round CRT television. Now what more can you ask for to demonstrate of a HD title? *Phew* I'm overwhelmed...
Heh. They're watching Little Miss Sunshine.
that guy sucked major balls. he didnt even use impact cam! unless it was his first go then ill let him off.
yh man i agree he couldnt even complete the button sequence...hurting my baby
