'Heavenly Sword is much more than just 'Goddess of War'

"Heavenly Sword" is one of the more intriguing titles in the PlayStation 3 arsenal. As the game's fall release nears, Sony is finally pulling back the curtain on this stylish adventure, and Sun Herald has seen the gorgeous action lying in wait.

The game was initially perceived as another title in the vein of "God of War," but after playing through the second of "Heavenly Sword's" six chapters, it's clear that the heroine Nariko is carving out her own corner in the action game arena.

To be honest, after playing the short (really short) but sweet demo, the game more closely leans to the style of Ninja Gaiden Sigma, but on the easier side.
