Play Magazine Rates Heavenly Sword 100/100

Yes, thats right. Play Magazine has given Heavenly Sword an 100/100. Although onAXIS does not have the full review, they have this snipped from MetaCritic:

What MotorStorm has become to racing and Odin Sphere to action role-playing, Heavenly Sword is now to 3D action: Perfection. [Sept 2007, p.17]

When the full review is on the site, it will be posted.

barricade the door before they come in.

I think a lot of people who have not played this game too easily brush it aside.
Listening to the IGN podcast they seem very upbeat about War Hawk and Heavenly Sword.
Ive said it dozens of time, this game is the reason I bought my PS3, had it been exclusive to another console I would still be getting it there.

Now if i can only figure out WTF is "twing twang"

lol @ thereapersson
no one gets in without the password

Edit: I've got the secret weapon

thereapersson4109d ago

You seal the door, i'll board up the windows!

Bringing wood to a flamewar...

Crazyglues4109d ago

I'll head upstairs while ya'll take care of down here...

But hurry up, because I can feel them coming...

SmokeyMcBear4109d ago

PlayStation3604109d ago

Bubble for all of ya'll. That had me laughing. :))

thereapersson4109d ago

I seriously laughed at the troll spray image

Whoooop4109d ago (Edited 4109d ago )

I brought 2 chimps to keep trolls occupied until ya'll can shut down everything..

Don't forget to put some masking tape or something in the toilets, TROLLS will sneak through anything..


SH*T... forget about it.. damn chimps are playing around again..

ALI-G4109d ago (Edited 4109d ago )

this is just not only pure rumor but made up story by BS3 fangirls who been crying for the past 48 becuase all of the kicks in the nuts they were getting.
anyway: i will give you this one : this game will make PS3 owners proud not becuse it will be just over average game but becuse the fact it will be the first non-port game in over 3 months or so.

EDIT:@BELOW :still did not work : anyway HS will be the first non-port game in 5 months not 3
100/100 some one getting paid

Xbox 360 Will4109d ago

I brought the tranquilizer guns but forgot the ammo someone help!

DrPirate4109d ago

I'll man the turret on the roof. They aren't getting close.

Whoooop4109d ago

use rubber bullets we don't want TROLLS decomposing near the house..

Whoever's left please bring some damn sandwiches or a meat loaf, we hungry up in here...

XxZxX4109d ago (Edited 4109d ago )

here 8500lb of MK6 Nuclear Goodness, it will take out alot of XBOT and some good guys too. Collateral damage is necessary if we can clear those bastard once and for all.

Ps: WHat decomposing?? they are nothing left to decompose of.

PS-Wii-604109d ago

just tell them their 360s are BACK from the repair shop.
That'll send them all home!

When mine came back it literally felt like my "lifeline" had been restored!

nasim4109d ago

garbage box 360 is now officially dead

GOTY confirmed

DeadIIIRed4109d ago

I got turkey, ham, and I brough some cookies and......AHHHHHH, OH NO!!! We're too late!!!!

Whoooop4109d ago (Edited 4109d ago )

I don't know why, but that's almost exactly the house I pictured in my mind...

and don't be fooled by the hologram of mart's avatar. He won't be near the house. He is relaxed far away in his troll horse sending the retarded troops..

no need to mention who these troops are! :)


Are Friggin Hilarious


I don't know why they would even show up for the ridicule, oh wait yeah I do

Keep up the good work men, So far only one, but more are soon to come. Its gonna get real ugly REAL quick, just...don't ....lose....heart.

LosT---SouL4109d ago

sonarus4109d ago

to be honest i didnt really enjoy the demo i was too pissed off at its length to really enjoy it but the combat system is well designed and the graphics are excellent. The story looks to bve top knotch and its already a confirmed purchase for me. I gotta get GRAW 2, Lair, Warhawk and Heavenly unfortunately i played the NCAA 08 demo and i liked it so much had to get that so looks like one of those games might drop from the list.

Snake_Doctor4109d ago

I play online almost everyday
my latest work of art...

"What MotorStorm has become to racing and Odin Sphere to action role-playing, Heavenly Sword is now to 3D action: Perfection. [Sept 2007, p.17] "

Umm, yeah...That did'nt sound biased.

Let's wait and see what IGN and GS have to say. Not time to celebrate just yet even though I know how you love to cheer for nothing (ouch!)

e-ray4109d ago

For sure, Jenzo. If Motorstorm is perfect to them, then Heavenly Sword is definitely not perfect.

Don't get me wrong, I am very much looking forward to playing Heavenly Sword whether I buy a PS3 soon or not. It looks like a great game, but it's hard to attain perfection--I hope I'm wrong and it is perfect.

Snake_Doctor4109d ago

So far it has gotten a 9.6 from the polish mag and this right. Any low scores yet?

techie4109d ago

It's got 10,9,9+ and 8

tplarkin74108d ago

How do these no-name reviewers get a copy of the game? They either made up the review or Sony gave them a copy knowing that they would favor the game. I'm NOT saying Sony "paid them off", just that they have a record of scoring games high.

the worst4109d ago

where the lagbox360 fanbox at

BIadestarX4109d ago

Non-Sony fanboys please ignore my following comments; it's only intensted to fanboys such as "the worst" that drop some flame bait.
(Heavenly Sword deserves the score. It's a great game.)
Sorry I had to.

To Sony fanboys:
You should be happy that at least 1 game on the PS3 is getting great reviews... Not as good as Bioshock ofcourse which happends to be an xbox 360 game.
Maybe xbox fans are just too busy looking at the scores bioshock is being getting... or ranting about warhawk and lair misserable score.

Azures4109d ago

Warhawk is a good game and you know it Blade, I've seen you comment about getting a ps3 simply to play it.

It needs to be judged as a multi player only game.

DrPirate4109d ago

Bladestar, you know I hate fighting, and I don't say this to rip on you.

I had Bioshock pre-purchased on Steam 4 days before it came out.

I own the game on PC and it runs great. Thanks.

nomuken4109d ago

ahahahahahaha. Thats what you call a review

BloodySinner4109d ago

Too bad you couldn't say the same about the Warhawk review.
Anyway, as for this review, it's pretty good. Now let's wait and see what the other gaming sites have to say about it.

TheMART4109d ago

Dude, still...

Warhawk sucked, Lair sucked...

And Play is giving 10's constantly. I'll quote some sites:

"According to the buzz zinging around video game forums online (it seems the original forum was GameFaqs), Play has rewarded Heavenly Sword with a perfect 10/10. Of course, this is one publication that has been known to sprinkle the "10"s about quite liberally, so perhaps it doesn't mean much"


wasn't that the mag that gave

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG for the 360 a 9.5???

Ah right, that respectable magazine!
Well hell yeah, if Sonic got a 9.5 I would give Heavenly Sword a 15+ at least!!!!

cartman3134109d ago

@ TheMART - You have played both Warhawk and Lair to know that they suck?
Lucky, wish I could live in your delusional little world and play video games before release.

vickers5004109d ago


How old are you? And tell the truth. I cringe at the idea that you are a full grown adult.

techie4109d ago

no This wasn't the play that reviewed Sonic as 95/100. There are two Play publications - a US and UK one. One reviewed Sonic as 9.5 - the other gave this review of HS. So back down.
