Heavenly Sword Review - "If you like GOW, you'll love this"

Heavenly Sword feels like a movie hit, thanks to the beautiful scenarios with in-depth detail and the stunning cutscenes. The combat moves can be repetitive. The aftertouch controls are a bit of an afterthought; there's lack of accuracy and you'll often feel betrayed by it.

The soundtrack is epic, worthy of the latest blockbuster film. It varies throughout the levels and never feels overused. The voice acting is one of the best I've heard in a video game. The characters show deeper personalities due to their peculiar voices and their attitude.

If you love action-adventure games like God of War, Shadow of the Colossus, etc. you will love this one as well. The story is very engaging, and the gameplay takes some skill, which is good. The only downside is the game is short.

Overall Rating - 4.2/5

The story is too old to be commented.

I loved God of War, so this is a sure buy for me, Great review.

but I'm surprised about how diverse the scores of this game have been. Some are perfect or near-perfect, some great, and some just mediocre.

All these different scores I see have had me absolutely loving the game, then feeling ok about the game, then doubting the game, and then loving the game again.

It's quite a vicious cycle, really...

But that was before i found out about the counter attacks and all possible combinations you could do. In my oppinion it´s not at all repetetive compared to other games in the genre..
