Heavenly Sword gets a good score from another reviewer.
This is what they had to say :-
For the first time outside of a 40 RPG, I was sold as much by the characters as I was by the combat in Heavenly Sword -- perhaps more. It is a stunning achievement in capturing performance, and a solid jumping-off point for the franchise.
Framerate issues and some weird visual glitches keep the game from being a perfect stunner, but when it works, it works, absolutely blowing away most next-gen efforts graphically.
Absolutely fantastic vocal and mo-cap performances, a perfect score and some great sound effects all combine an aural experience that few games can touch.
The SIXAXIS bits work (with a few exceptions during some fights where soldiers are knocked up in the air), and once you learn that the combat is as just reaction as action, things flow wonderfully.
The game is juuuust long enough to sell the combat and the storyline, and it'll support a couple of experimental play-throughs, but only the hardcore will learn to really dig into reversals and the combo trees.
