A new gameplay video of Heavenly Sword from GameSpot.
To hell with those stupid 6/10 reviews of Edge and PSM or EGM's 8/10. This video alone warrants 1000/10 IMO. God, I love this game.
hell with the reviews. i want this game now.
From now on where people ask me what "Next gen" is, I will show this and say "This is Next Gen".
I luv hack and slash games. especially rpgs. Only hack and slahs i hate even if it got 10/10 is devil may cry. It statred the video game war.
If you remember the review it didnt get a low score because of graphics.
All over again...
The problem with N3 is that all of the characters are reserved to one type of movement and they are carbon copies of each other. N3 is a good game but the difference here is the level of detail on each enemy. I'm not saying that they are all unique but there are way more versions of enemies in Heavenly Sword than in that fight sequence that you posted. Not a fanboy, but just want to get it right.
The prob that there are no 1000 in N3 in sight. As far as everyone noticed the distance of view in this game is very short - 10 meters (relatively to the game scale) not more - everything else is 'fogged'
wow this makes dead rising look like kaka Ohh man i will never trust a single review that gives under 9.0. This game looks breath taking and i thought dead rising had a lot of zombies in that car park with that dumb ai they had
"that dumb ai they had" Well, they were zombies...
Agreed with Dr Pepper. They were zombies and they had to be dumb. Still, they would eat Frank alive in crowds. I love Heavenly Sword but before that, I'm a Dead Rising die hard fan. Now if only Frank and Nariko could meet somewhere...
The difference is that the zombies in Dead Rising are'nt all generic as the enemies in the Heavenly Sword clip. They all look the same. *@ moron below - Exactly what I meant...I did'nt expect more from you really.
DEAD RISING 2!!!! That would be cool... [Thought bubble] Heavenly Dead? Dead Sword? Rising Heaven? Rising Sword? [/Thought bubble] My sword rises when i watch this!<--- That was too easy...
Good one! If Nariko is a secret costume or character... Nice ideas and good line :) Deadly Sword or Heaven Rising.
I doubted this game a bit after hearing a couple of negative things but after seeing this video I must say that this is a first day buy for me. I can't wait to beat up an entire army all by myself.
Its still a lil too...dynastary warriors/goddess of war for me. P.S: mind you its a good looking game, I'm not saying it isn't. But I've never liked on mass fighting games, and i loathed the easy button mashing of god of war1, and 2.
" i loathed the easy button mashing of god of war1, and 2" Has combo moves, you have to use strategy, hack and slashing won't get you far. This is definitely a first day purchase for me.
all the enemies in heavenly sword are all on screen and actually trying to fight you, dynasty warriors just spawn from nowhere and have same lame ai , this is gonna be better than god of war, and i f'n love that game
That was crazy! Can't wait for this game, first day buy for sure.
Isn't that BEAUTIFUL!??! Now you believe in 6/10, 7/10 reviews???? did that guys saw this part of the game??? did that guys REALY PLAYED THE GAME?????? i don't think so...
According to the reviewers who are giving HS lower scores (6/10, 7/10), graphics are not the issue. And obviously from this video you can see that the graphics are incredibly impressive. The issue has been gameplay. So if you like pretty graphics but the controls are wonky, then go for it. If you like tight controls along with good graphics, then maybe this isn't for you. I downloaded the MoH: Airborne demo and had the same issues (graphics look great but the controls felt far too loose to me).
Looks pretty cool. Seems a little weird you can knock everyone around you down by putting some guy's head in the ground through his nuts.
Do we have to fight all of them LOL?
Holy crap!!!!!!!!! so heavenly Beautifull i want it so bad.
Holy crap... I know visuals don't make a great game, but man, I sure as hell don't mind having graphics like that!
1000?........... Reminds me of 99 Nights.. but without allies and with identical enimies.
Comparing N3 (99 Nights) to Heavenly Sword is like comparing Hour of Vicotry (Worst 360 title yet) to Call Of Duty 4.
I played the demo for 99 nights and it sucks, the only people who are comparing it with Heavenly Sword are the people who didn't play the HS demo. The fighting style suits well with all those characters on sceen, they have their different attacks and different blocks.
99 Nights didn't have the kill animations this one does.. That's what really catches my eye, when you do a combo and the camera pans out a bit and it's like a quick cinematic. Kameo (launch day title) on 360 has 1000 enemies on screen at once with all the trolls and that was hella fun slaughtering them by the truckloads.
Im buying it when it comes out
This is unbelievable, I want.
that looks like a lot of fun! My only question is: how long is that going to be fun for before it gets redundant? I can't imagine after killing 500 enemies in the same however many ways, I'll want to kill another 5000. But this is all just speculation, I hope they prove me wrong.
Wow. The difference between this and games like dynasty warriors is you can see the enemies really swarming around looking for their opening. Unfortunately for them they're just over matched. Not to mention this game actually has a deep combat system and is not just hack and slash as some would have you believe.
