Play Magazine 10/10
PSXtreme Magazine 9+
PSX is a 9+ and don't you forget it! lol
PS3 supports high quality display in resolution of 1080p(*) as standard, which is far superior to 720p/1080i.
Each generation of PlayStation has made a dramatic improvement in how we create and play videogames. PLAYSTATION 3 will be a breakthrough in how the world experiences entertainment
I also have high expectations for the evolution by the online features that will be enhanced
Empowered by the Cell processor with super computer like performance, a new age of PLAYSTATION 3 is about to begin. Together with content creators from all over the world, SCEI will accelerate the arrival of a new era in computer entertainment."
Ken Kutaragi, President and CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment
PS3 will be able to output signals at a resolution of 1080p - higher than any console available now and higher than Xbox 360. And that's not all - if you have a lot of money you'll be able to hook up two high-definition TVs at once for a 32:9 ultra-widescreen panoramic view via PlayStation 3's dual HDMI connection
SO AFTEER ALL HS [email protected] LAIR 1080p ugly @30fps goes down
@guybelowme:why??this is just pure fact from sony confrence with the refrence.i guess you cannot handle the truth
And I read how theres going to be online or something like that with this game.
BTW @ the guy above me you just earned a nice spot on my ignore list. :)
What the hell is Blu-ray for?
Just another short, buggy, hack n slash with no rumble or online play. lmao. enjoy it, fanzombies.
I see someone is less that impress with their wii/360.
Why you gotta troll bro..why you gotta troll?
Once the ps3 starts to pick up and do better then he will no longer have a reason to breathe in this world.
So you pay for a blew-ray movie player and you get another short game? But I thought that's why Gears was short? Wasn't it because it was on a puny DVD 9? Oh wait, you mean next-gen development costs shorten huge games? OOHHH!!!!! So what's blew-ray for again?
You fail at life.
....to see this game getting the reviews it deserves
wait for gamespot ign and eurogamers
PSW and PLAY seem good enough for me.
The official Xbox Magazine
I hate when people say wait, for x site,
when folkor or lair GOT bad review.
If u sit down and play the demo without button mashing it, but instead have a little patience and skill and do counter attacks it´s amaseing =)
one of the best looking games ever. j
no matter how you twist the truth - the best looking games are all coming to the ps3 and most of them are exclusive. There's not a single game on the 360 that looks this good besides Gears of War.
I hope Halo 3 will look amazing, the screenshots look very very good.
Have you seen Bioshock?
If Mass Effect can get a solid frame rate it will certainly be prettier and hopefully have matching voice actting to boot. Unfortunately there wont be a jump button for either. But when it comes down to it nothing looks better than Resident Evil 5, nothing...
I think Killzone II did in my opinion.
"Recenze: Heavenly Sword - Kratosův kat?
13. 8. 2007 | Karel Kališ | formát pro tisk |
Hlavní bolístka PS3? Nedostatek atraktivních exkluzivních her, které by donutily sfouknout prach z Blu Ray mechaniky. Konečně však vypadá, že se situace obrací k lepšímu. Heavenly Sword je první příspěvek přicházejí podzimní vlny slibných titulů. Slabá náplast na čekání nebo obvaz, který kritikům zaváže ústa? Nehádejte, čtěte."
Rest of reviews:
"Play Magazine 10/10
PSXtreme Magazine 9+
Ah wait, biased Play Mag and the rest also PS mags.
Like Sony fandroids said with Bioshock, lets wait for IGN guys! Where Bioshock BTW got a 9.7.
I don't see this game reaching over a 9. Just got a feeling PSW is most on track with 8 out of 10
we love to hate you mart keep up the hatred you make it fun
I hate to be the one to tell you this Marty.
But with your continuing useless posts I fell I have to.
Your a freaking idiot.
So now you know. Seemed wrong you where the only one left out of the loop.
Do us all a favor - fu(k off and die already, will you.
You have no business being part of this discussion, so go back to the discussions you have an interest in.
Why do you care?
Everybody knows your denial issues with the PS3. We read it every time you post. The truth is that no matter how good having a 360 is, its so much better having a PS3 as well.
Having both would certainly leave you less time to spend on the wrong forum for hours at a time wasting huge amounts of energy posting hate about something you don't have(?) leaving you time to play games instead :)
It's going to be fun watching your future post...it will be like a shore-bird trying to stop a tsunami.
All _Bots on this site will still shyt on the game and it's reviews until IGN, 1Up and Gamespot, etc and possibly OXM review it. :P
So just get ready to hear all of the cranium - cracking comments re: doupe.cz - -it should be Epic. "Did you make that review up, because I've never heard of it...?" "Why didn't you translate it, how do we know that's the real score...?"
That's just the way it is, but I know this game kicks ass. It's just one of many in the list of games coming to PS3 this Fall; and sure to be a bonafide hit. 8|
Like you Sony fanboys did with Bioshock indeed. So we waited and we got the IGN close to a 10 score for that game.
Indeed. We're talking about Playstation baised magazines here. If a game for the 360 got scores like this from XBOX only mags you would think the same.
Especially when some unknown magazine from a former East European country, PS biased, is reviewing a game you should take some care before something is overhyped. Again.
You don't have to translate marks to see the real score, do you?
I am just betting it's overhyped, like Lair was. I've played the demo of Heavenly Sword and God of War II is just better. It really is. Thats why I say this game will make a solid 8 but nothing more.
I'd just like to be proved wrong. :D
laughing out loud. Way to stay tru - to - form Marty!
this review on Doupe.cz was not based on true final version, which are magazines getting in this days (disk is called "review 2")
"We're talking about Playstation baised magazines here."
Wrong. PSX is multiplatform, well respected magazine. PLAY is not the PLAY you're thinking of - there is a UK and US one completely unrelated. One is respected, the other is not....the respected one reviewed HS.
But yes we're waiting for the reviews, doesn't mean we can't look at some beforehand does it?
but Heavenly Sword kicks more ass than God of War 2 .. even in the demo.
so please, be quiet, this game is really, really great and there's nothing like it on the 360. sorry.
compare one SONY game to another SONY game.
Idontcare dude lol I cant believe you said heavenly sword kicks more ass than god of war cause dude it doesn't. God of war 2 was so good it truly was it was better than the first one. It was great the combat was more fun not just a button smasher like heavenly sword and it had a block button. Story in god of war > heavenly sword demo
Yes, God of War II was great, but not a button masher? What planet are you from? I remember having to mash a button to lift a door open. Mashed more buttons to kill all the guys that came out. Sure the button changed when I was about to finish them. Then back to mashing again.
Tried mashing buttons when I first played HS demo. Didn't work so well.
Very annoying .
So I gave you a bubble
hope it Helps
here's a bubble from me too.
it's really annoying how, when you are talking logic and common sense, fanboys (of *ALL camps), will take your bubble.
especially so, it seems, if you are saying nice things about Sony and the Playstation 3.
Play Magazine 9/10
PSW*UK mag* 8/10
Funny PSW give HS higher scores on the individuals (10/10 graphics, 10/10 sound, 8/10 gameplay) than Lair, but they get the same score. :/
To be fair, i can see lair being a marmite game :P
i.e. you will either love it or hate it
Don't forget this one!
Lair getting 3 out of 5. In a 10 scale, that's a 6. After EGM with three panel members giving 5, 5.5 and 6, that doesn't sound like a killer app/system seller to me.
chose the good reviews and forget about the real reviews : act of desperation for good games.
@below; let me list some of the games IN 2007 you will never ever dream about them in your combo grilling/washing mechaine called PS3
BIOSHOC(......) / PGR3 /MASSEFFECT/HALO3/ACECOMBAT 6 / LOST ODDESY IN ADDITION TO OUR HUGE LIBERARY AGINST YOUR CRAPPY PORT THAT WE USUALLY PLAYED 1,2,3....7,8 MONTHS AHEAD
thanks i am not intrested in ur dragon or goddess of war
@belowbelow: i am here becuse i know sony fanboy will hype any crab ps3 exculsive
EGM reviewed an old version of Lair.
This game will be amazing and there's nothing like it on the 360. So even if it gets a 8/10 .. it's a game you won't find on the xbox.
if your not interested than why are you here.
I'm not interested in your "great library" which the cream of THAT crop consists of what... SHOOTERS. But the point is, because I'm not interested you will never see me on those posts. Posting Bullshit.
Yet YOU are HERE
methinks you are interested
or you DONT have a life
whatever to each his own
Loudninja, here's an updated list...
EGM = 5.5
GamePro = 7.5
PSW*UK mag* 8/10
Play Magazine = 9.0
Edge Magazine = 9.0
Gamezone = 9.0
Game Informer = 9.5 (unconfirmed)
Lmfao, then that just proves you have no life.
So this is good as well
so what? just dont take rundown from that early review so seriously - lot of mentioned issues might have been fixed since old build from July.... wait for reviews written from more actual build of game, like from disk "review 2" in attached foto.
thats the review of the demo, check the comments on the org. link ;0) this game is shaping up to be a star in 2007, really good for PS3 owners (us) lol...
we all knew you had it in ya
What a fourth quarter the ps3 will have this year ah!
Yes, one to pick up!!
I'm intensely curious about this game and really want it to turn out well, because then I'll have that much more to look forward to when I get around to buying a PS3. But it seems that the initial trickle of reviews all come from friendly publications. This smacks of a deliberate marketing strategy to generate early positive momentum either to counteract or even to discourage potential negative reviews down the road. Nothing wrong with that really, but it worries me because it betrays an underlying lack of confidence in the product. I say have faith in your craftsmanship and let the critics say what they will.
Is what i think exactly...
You just said it in a much smarter way :D
Your theory (if true) is a better idea then letting one mag of idiots bad mouth an incomplete version and then have half the internet (the negative half) believe it like EGM did to Lair. One bad "review" and Xbots everywhere (I'm not referring to you) that the game (which they haven't played and probably never will) is trash. A poor way to judge imo.
Based on what I've seen, read and played I'm expecting solid 9's from this game so I choose to believe those reviews are pretty accurate, just like I didn't have to wait for IGN to know Bioshock was going to be good.
Cool, seems like it'll be a good game.
Fun fact, "dupe" (so no "o" there) means "ass" in Croatian.
I just hope they have fixed the vertical sync and framerate issues it has in the demo. Aside from that this game should be prjetty awsome.
great news on Heavenly Sword ... good time to be a gamer no matter which system you have and even better for people with multi-systems
sounds like an old-ish build to me
i dont believe it got a 10/10 from play magazine, i get that mag sometimes and they usually spot on with their reviews - i believe ign the most though
1up.com will turn up with a 6/10 because it "doesn't ivolve any platforming" and "It's not on 360"
1: Ive played the demo, i don´t need the magazine scores =P
2: What are you doing here? Do you own a ps3? Do you have any intrest in Heavenly sword?
For people who claim to Hate the PS3 sooooo much
I think that the haters are here more than the people that support the system
-but it just shows there own "secret passion" for the PS3 lol
Its okay MArt we know you enjoy the system in secret, and you hope it wins the Console wars
I just hope no moron pits Heavenly Sword against Bioshock, those two games are totally different. Both are worth getting (the two anime features are cool, sort of excited on the story and presentation of it, can't go wrong with Blu ray I suppose)
this game is just the beggining of something big...
Ninja Theory put to much time and effort into this title for it to be anything but. Their attention to detail from the story, voice acting, character movement, studying thousands of kung fu films, and facial antimations, are not going to go unnoticed and appreciated. I don't see this title scoring less than a 9 / 90% overall because I feel this dedication and attention to detail is going to pay off for Ninja Theory and all their hard work.
Anyone that says this game is a God of War rip off has either never played the game or they are simply trying to down play the splendor that is "Heavenly Sword".
30 frames per second 720p. But no one bashing Sony should the PS3 be a supercomputer??
Most of the so called AAA games for the BrokenBox360 are not exclusives, they are all PC games as well. PS3 has real exclusives, stuff that will sell systems. No one wants to play Bioshock on the BrokenBox when they can play it on their PC's. So you XBOTs can STFU!
on the 360, wich will cost most people less, than upgrading their pc. Also, xbox/pc exclusivity is a good thing, because it widens the userbase for games, wich makes it more interesting for devs and in the end us 360/pc gamers. So, if you as ps3 fan, play Bioshock on your PC, you're actually supporting game development for 360. Thank you.
@25, you have joined the rank of the elite. end sarcasm.
