Don't blink or you might miss the demo.
why people get pissed when someone compares this to GOD of War.
Hell i'll take that in a heart beat. Mrs Kratos
Yeah as that is one of the best games ever made. and haha "Don't blink or you might miss the demo." that's funny. It was really damn short.
how is this like god of war? seriously i dont get it. why do people think its like god of war.
ive played the demo over 10 times now and the combat and counters are way above god of war's combat. its a lot more complicated and you have to be fluid in your attacks, you cant mash or else you die.
Their talking about the weaponry. The swords attached to chains that you swing around. The combat is similar, Heavenly Sword is just way more advanced and intuitive and involves skill.
In all honesty I was a little bummed about the demo.
Almost a gig worth of space for a roughly 6 min demo. The game looks absolutely gorgeous but the gameplay that is presented is just to short.
When the second group of enemies is defeated and the door opens I was like "oh yeah come to D............" "WTF" "coming September" I damn near broke a controller.
the demo was a massive disappointment for me and this game is shaping up to be yet another disappointment for PS3 I think, they did a good job on the graphics but the gameplay lacked depth behind the eye candy
Either you're crazy or you just don't like action games. The gameplay was definitely the deepest to be featured in an action game so far. She has a combo list & counter system that is usually reserved for fighting games like Tekken or VF and pulls it off so fluidly. The only dissapointment about this demo is that there wasn't more of it! And every preview of the demo pretty much agrees... so this is hardly shaping up to be a dissapointment for the PS3. Every site I've visited is looking forward to it even more now.
Sorry but this game doesnt come close to VF5 in my books my problem isnt that the gameplay is fun it just lacks real depth I just dont think there's enough to stretch it out through a whole game keeping it fresh and entertaining, it feels it would get boring quickly
And that's exactly my point. Either you have not really played the game or you're disillusioned. If it's not clear to you how her moveset compares to games in the fighting genre, it's even more clear that you haven't actually played it. Especially when you throw in the arial combos and super moves for some extra sweetness.
There is not currently an action game with MORE depth to the gameplay than Heavenly Sword, period. There is no action game with such a complex move set or countering system. And if there isn't enough in there to keep you from being bored, then there isn't an action game that's been made that wouldn't bore you... period.
Aren't like only half her moves availiable in the demo?
I have played it but you seem to have a problem with accepting opinions that dont agree with yours. It is my opinion that from what I have played on the demo it isnt that great and that I need more substance from the gameplay, deal with it
It might get repetive if you don't press any other buttons but X.
Have you played it?
X won't get you anywhere.
I think the main reason for the GOW comparisons are her ranged stance... seeing her using a weapon on chains and the interactive cutscenes is what reminds ppl of GOW.
And I think there are definitely similarities... but being that this is the first such experience on a next gen system, it still feels more awesome and the combat is definitely deeper. After playing it, it feels like its own unique game that can still be successful alongside of GOW.
I think you haven't played the game, n i think you haven't even read the reviews. Not any review, im talking about IGN n GAMEINFORMER reviews. Please stop talkin about this game n keep an eye on your 360, because i might break. So don't even worry about this game.
I've played the hell out of Ninja Gaiden Sigma, All the DMC games, both GoW games, and all 3 of the modern day Prince of Persia titles...
This game has by far the biggest level of depth and complexity to its battle system. You are at fault for comparing the game to titles like VF5, its an action game not a fighting game. Would you compare GoW to VF5 and say its combat is trite and meaningless? Probably not because at this point you'd look like a fool given the game's universal praise, but you take shots at this one which is superior in every way we've seen so far.
Comparing it to others in its own genre, its already shown to have: beautiful graphics, incredible battle system depth, beautiful musical score, intelligent enemy AI (to the point where button mashing makes you vulnerable to assualt), peerless facial expression and voice acting (its production values resemble that of a real movie), and a very good script.
If you've seen any of the gameplay videos of the final game and play the demo, you will see this.
Its so easy to feign ignorance, and for sake I hope your are feigning it.
lol @ these fanboys who cant accept an alternative critical opinion, so what I didnt like the game, you might like it fair enough but I didnt. I expected more depth from this game, it didnt meet my expectations, maybe things will be better in the full version but from the demo this game is not worth my money.
I played the demo 5 or 6 times, and it was very, very similiar to God of War to me.......actually almost all games are similiar to another game that we've played before and GOW is a great game so thats not a bad thing, of course as he said it does some things to differentiate itself, like having different combat stances, and obviously its much better looking. Yes the demo was obviously very short but I enjoyed what little gameplay it offered, I did think it could use a bit more polish in some areas where it looked a bit blocky(ex. hair) which I'm sure will be ironed out prior to release but overall I think it will be a great game.
I thought the demo did its job, it left me wanting to play more and i believe it did that to most of us, now a longer demo would have been great but, no deom is even worse , so enjoy it if its for you and if not delete it and move on...But anyway can't wait till this one comes out, I will have it...Nice concept and alot of but kickn so, I'm in...
