The comparisons to God of War couldn't have been more accurate.
PlayStation 3 release Heavenly Sword boasts a blade-wielding protagonist, gripping action and spectacular cinematography.
Created by game studio Ninja Theory, Heavenly Sword tells the tale of Nariko, a passionate heroine who brandishes the Heavenly Sword to protect it from an invading king.
Heavenly Sword is a rare game where cut scenes are welcome. Andy Serkis -– best known to Lord of the Rings fans as Gollum – lends his creative talents with impressive results. Facial animations are incredibly detailed and dripping with emotion, ranging from panic to elation to terror.
