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...
Rising Sword? [/Thought bubble]
My sword rises when i watch this!<--- That was too easy...
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?
so heavenly Beautifull i want it so bad.
I know visuals don't make a great game, but man, I sure as hell don't mind having graphics like that!
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.
Dynasty Warriors is a mindless button masher that hasn't changed since the first game on PS2 and last gen in both gameplay and graphics.
Heavenly Sword is a state-of-the-art next-gen game with deep and beautiful combat and stunning and varied enemy animations and movements. All those Keoi "Warriors" games like Samuari Warriors 360, Dynasty Warriors 6 (PS3/360) and BladeStorm (360/PS3) look and play the same way their last gen versions did.
OMG, I'm sorry. Please Delete. Stupid browser, submitted it 4 times. I'm really sorry.
Please Delete this comment. Browser problem.
I guess when you have 9 bubbles you can just throw them away like nobodys business. ;)
Well said Bathyj. :)
wow this looks damn amazing. have you seen a game with so much going on in such a nice graphic ? lol, all other games on other consoles get powned.
I don't think you have to kill all the soldiers. I think this is the very beginning of the game where Nariko dies. You can see and hear from the video that she is slowly dying because of the sword.
You can fight and kill upto 2000 in the same battle as the game progresses. It's not just that begining scene :)
Plus you'll also be able to see most of the bodies pile up - about a 1000 i think fully ragdoll bodies :P
that did look great, better than 99Nights but the gameplay was the same, lots of the same enemies on screen while 2 or 3 attack, and the rest stand there like zombies waiting to be killed= personally Ive never been a big fan of these type of hack & slash games for some reason I did like GoW and NG, the 1st DMC was OK too and I know sonykids are going to hit disagree but its just my personal taste but I will give the game credit because the visuals look good thats it.=
You want ALL of those thousands of enemies to attack at once, just like in GOW. LOL
I think you should do yourself a favour and have another look at the video, this time take your green coloured glasses off.
i imagine they were playing the game on very easy, they dont want to get owned while they are recording the video man, everyone who shows off games do that, also if you dont like games like this , why did it interest you to click on the link to watch the video and also sit your ass here and post comments about it, unless you got nothing better to do, just sit back and enjoy a true masterpiece when it arrives
you're right tmax I dont want *ALL of those "thousands" of enemies to attack at once, and NO I also don't want the AI to randomly send a "handful" of enemies at me with varied attacks, instead of 2 or 3 walking forward for me to slice up and then swing my weapon in a circulation to kill the rest of the zombies standing by, wash rinse repeat a few 100x's.= now of course I'm exaggerating a little but thats how most games like this look and play imo, its just a reality games in this genre especially have a tendency to be repetitive button mashers= its a hard formula to master for devs to create a game like this and do it correctly, lately only games like GoW and NG have truly succeeded imo.
I havent played the game so I cant say for sure if it will or it wont get it right in the gameplay dept and with the very mixed reviews its easy to believe its not top notch game like GoW. pacman I didnt know I needed your permission to comment on this game, at least I didnt just go on a rant about how much this game sucks like so many sonykids do on 360 news, I just say what I truly believe no matter how bad sonykids will hate me for it, everyone knows unless they are seriously slow that Im a 360 fan and dont care much for ps3, I joke around and laugh at you sonykids every chance I get but still I use common sense and I think what I said was true=
though you got one thing correct, you haven't played the game.
Most of these video captures are made with God mode on, surely you must know that. This game also has heaps of combo moves, much more depth that any hack and slash.
Also I can't get into GoW, it didn't do it for me, doesn't mean it's bad, me friends love it - no offence just an opinion.
You really believe guys in hokey metallic suits is a masterpiece... Gears is a good game with kool game mechanics but very far from a masterpiece.. more like a cheesy sci-fi flick...I see HS as a masterpiece.. look at what their able to do with HS with PS3 technology...this looks better than any 360 game ever made.. period...character models, environment, enemies on screen.... looks like the jokes on u fanboy.
iam gonna get this on its first day baby!
Whatcha doing with that right hand down there? You do realize there isnt a single chick on this site right? Noone here wants to look at your methed out rake of a body dude.
mate u should think about what ya saying
i have met a few girls on this site
Cool, this game was why I sold my 360 and got a PS3, it was always gonna be a day one purchase for me. Roll on September 14th.
So you sold your Xbox360 that has a whole bunch of VERY nice games for a game that is not even released yet on the PS3? I just don't believe you.
actually i do have a few friends that sold their 360's to get a ps3 for the exclusives on it.
Xbox 360 does have a lot of exclusives, if they are "nice" or not is a matter of opinion, when like me you don't like Forza, Halo and don't play online then many of the biggest selling points for the 360 are gone. I bought the 360 for R6: Vegas, Crackdown and GOW, I enjoyed them greatly but after I finished them I checked the horizon for what new games were coming out that interested me and there wasn't much, that's in no way a fanboy flame just a personal choice based on my own personal tastes. So I had a look around, I saw a video for Heavenly Sword and it immediately stunned me, then I checked what else was coming to the PS3 and saw Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted, all of them interested me (particularly HS) so I sold the 360.
If you don't believe me, well tough, I know that once I had a 360 which was sold and now a UK PS3 sits under my TV. Who knows, maybe after xmas I will look on the horizon again and see the games that interest me most will be 360 exclusives so I will switch back, I don't care what system I own, I just want to play the games that interest me most.
And your statement that the PS3 only has a lot of video's while the 360 has games, you are right but when I sold my Gamecube to get a 360 I sold a system with lots of nice games to get a 360 based on only video's for GOW, Vegas and Crackdown.
Enjoy your games everyone, regardless of what system they are on!
either the ps3/wii.
x360 has no game
GEARS --on PC too and runs much better
BIOSHOCK ---a borring game and is on PC as well
HALO 3----a super cartoon game in the era of Photorealism
GT5 ----------way better than Forza 2 with plastic cars and poor looking environment
GOW 3--best action adventure
Ratchet and clank --best in its genre
WKS ---second best RPG
there is no reason as to why people should even get a low powered and defective x360
Good reply, I apologize. But I just recon if good games are on both systems, why not keep both? Trading one for the other just didn't seem logical to me. I might get me a PS3 one of these days but I won't get rid of the Xbox360.
Just out of curiousity, what is your age?
I can't afford to have more than one system (I'm a student) so when I decided to get the PS3 it just seemed a bit weird to keep the 360 and barely use it when I could sell it for £250 and then be more than halfway towards my PS3. Believe me, if I had the cash I would have them both but I can't at the moment.
@Larry: You can't be more than 6 years old.
Proven that sources like edge are unprofessional.
They also gave like COD 1 and 2 and MoH Allied Assult 7. WTF
Freaking awesome, time some fanboy comes in this thread and destroys it :P
Looks good. I'm a fan of Dead Rising and 99 nights and that looked liked a step up in gameplay. But they AAAAALL look the same and move the same. Alot of side step to the right....side step to the left.
the foes in batman (camp version) lol
This looks great, LOOKS great but we won't know until we are sitting with the controler in our hands and playing it. I hate it when people hype a game as the saviour of a system judging by a 48 second clip. Don't say reviewers that actually have PLAYED the game is wrong judging by a short clip.
I've played the demo... A LOT, and the gameplay seemed pretty solid to me. I was expecting GOW like controls and was pleasently suprised with a completely different approach.
Oh and this video doesn't do justice to this game at all in terms of resolution. You've got to download the HD video's from gametrailers.com and watch them in full screen, which looks almost as good (pretty sure gametrailers videos are 720p) as playing this game on a HDTV. I can't even imagine how good this game would look in 1080p, if it even has the option.
That looks sick. They all have AI also. Looks kinda creep and chaotic.
That has got to be the begining of the game
I hate the way the O button moves kills neardy by enemies instantly. You hit one enemy and all the ones around you just fall down and die for no reason. It looks daft.
If Edge gave it 6/10, then I'm no longer interested.
my opinion is that its just a big entrance to the game. just like in the lord of the rings games and such in the demo it took more time to build up a big finisher like that
The enemies around you don't die from mere "splash" damage of you hitting the ground. When you hit the ground, it causes an slight earthquake and they're stunned. You still have to kill them yourself by either stabbing them while they're down, or knocking them back up on their feet. There's countless ways to destroy your enemies and believe it or not they do have more than one or two attack commands..
