That's how Tameem Antonaides, co-founder of Ninja Theory, described Heavenly Sword to SPOnG when SPOnG caught up with him a little while back. Having put their mitts on the game to hack, slash leap, swing and... well, groin mash my way through a chunk of Heavenly Sword I can heartily agree with his synopsis.
Heavenly Sword, if you've not had your head battered by all the hype surrounding it, follows the last days of Nariko (the sexy redhead in question) as she seeks to fulfil her destiny and avenge her father. While she's at it, however, she's got the Heavenly Sword to help her out. It sounds handy (and it is) but unfortunately every blow she lands using it takes her a bit closer to death thanks to its awesome power.
