With Heavenly Sword now out on store shelves (well, sorta), PSU thought it would be great to get some comments from one of the games developers and afterthoughts on their feelings about the game and how it's being accepted by the public.
imagine battling 1000 enemies per screen .
truely epic briliant graphics.HS makes all x360 games look like wii games
heavenly sword has a critic average of 81%
Just today USATODAY gave it 9.0 /10
techtree gave it 9.0/10
Gamerevolver gave it 9.0/10
so if u include those scores HS gets an 8.7.
PLAY has given HS a 10/10
EUROPEAN WEBSITES have mostly given HS atleast a 9 (not included in metecritic/gamerankings)
Tilt has given HS a 10/10
PSXEXTREME has given HS a 9+/10
NEXTGENIRELAND has given HS a 9.7/10
DOUPE CZ has given HS a 10/10
CVG has also given HS a 9/10 (watch out for their website update since i have their mag score)
HS is the GOTY 2007
Playstation Official Magazine UK
Though it's mostly good, often excellent and technically spectacular, as a wannabe movie this can't help but fall short of heavenly.
plus 6/10 from edge and gamer(tm)
Crap like this goes to show how desperate the 360 fanboys truely are. Funny how you decide to take a negative review from a playstation magazine but like a fanboy fool, disregard the others. But its not an uncommon thing. you damn fanboys do it all the time. Its funny to see exactly how far you asshole devotees will go. Its SO damn funny.
This is what tells alot
heavenly sword has been reviewed worldwide by 21 reputable sites and only 5 scores are below 75.
But you damn fanboys see only what you want right? lol.
LOL, how pathetically desperate!
Trying to pass off the 'review' from the place where that miserable little Xbot Rob Smith managed to get hired!
google Rob Smith Xbot to see for yourselves...
official Playstation magazine.
if anyone was going to give high scores its them.
the independent mags need to keep interest or nobody buys their mags.
the fact is i tend to go by edge and gamer(tm) reviews.
they both gave it a 6 !
we all know its a 6-8 hour game.
we all know it has no co-op.
we all know it has no multi-player.
we all know it has very little replay value.
but it has great cutscenes.
this means nothing to me though as i want a game to play a game.
if i want to watch a movie i watch a movie.
if this is a $30/£25 game i'm fine with it.
if its full price its blockbuster all the way !
nice_cuppa doesn't know that everyone knows that Microsoft managed to get a foaming at the mouth Xbot hired as Editor in Chief of Playstation Official Magazine!
What a moron!
Go away nice_cuppa you idiot.
Funny how you say you only go by edge, but when bioshock recieved its lowest score "an 8" from them, you damn near slit your wrists. Quit fanboying and grow the hell up.
UGH! Why are people so damn hung up on Online and Muiltiplayer?!? It's a single-player game, meant to be enjoyed alone, not some d-bag frat boy hump-fest. Not every game is meant to be ruined by teenage mic-spammers, some aspire to loftier goals, like a story. It's all the "new" gamers who are pushing the industry into this pit of mediocrity. Games used to be about story, and the only real multiplayer games were fighting games and co-op games like Contra. I would kill to leave most newer 3D games behind in favor of at least a few HUGE 2D games where the money could be better placed towards a writing team. /rant
Seriously though, Gears was only 6-7 hours on my first playthrough, and about 5 now. Halo 3 is supposedly not much more. Who does HS get gimped because of it's play time? Play it on nightmare, I can assure you it will take more than 6-7 hours to beat. You'll probably go through a few controllers too. And that's where the AI will shine.
6 hours of gameplay.
limited replay value and a full retail price is great !
when people like you troll it to no end.
It shows envy.
hahahahaa I have to laugh to rass claat.
those damn flashing red lights would make anyone delirious.
When the fanboys come trolling over a generally well received ps3 title. Even harsh ol' gamespot said the game was pure fun.
you go pay full price for this game.
i'm renting it.
when Playstation 3 is flooded with 6 hour single player only games we know who to blame.
i cant wait for the weak after launch.
i might pick it up second hand as there will be lots of copies.
oh and you really think that because i feel let down and choose to voice my opinion that makes this a better game !
Really they have. You can't rent on something you don't have. Please. Quit while you're ahead before you make yourself look EVEN MORE like an ass. Just quit it. Its embarrassing. It truely is.
There are some people who just can't accept constructive criticism. Truth is HS is only a decent game, too short on content, too much emphasis on cinematics, nothing particularly outstanding in gameplay. But it is one of the best that PS3 has to offer so far, so the overenthusiasm from the fanboys can be forgiven.
Sorry if i don't accept any criticism from a guy who's name is BS3
Edit: spelled accept wrong as pointed out below.
Could you be any more of a hypocrite??
I suppose you also won't "accept" my criticism that your command of the language is not too good because the word you were looking for should be "accept" and not "except", but that's only to be expected from an unwavering fanboy.
How does bad spelling make me a fanboy in any way, all it proves is that i sux at spelling (suck* sorry must be my fanboyism showing). I hate trolls like you who obviously don't own a PS3 talk bad about a game just because its not on your favorite platform. I only have a PS3 but you don't see me going into the xbox section and point out all the negative stuff on your games/console because i know how annoying little F#cks like you are. The game is short i accept that but so was Bioshock and you don't see people complaining about that because it was a great game and so is Heavenly Sword. welcome to my ignore list (your my first one that should make you feel special)
i found a new troll for my ignore list
Yea i like when fanboys pick and choose what they read.
welcome to my ignore list
go read game informer
The say the combat is great
this is the last time i see your words
since i started using the ignore button this sight has changed alot for me.
the only posts i see on this thread are mine now !
i see people now !
oh and for trane07 (i clicked show)
i had a ps3 but sold it.
to my brother.
he lives in my house so i play his.
his psn is rampage
i got the money.
and i still get to play the ps3 !
i the smart one.
(i do have money guy ! if i want a ps3 again which i probably will i can buy one next year. oh and the deterioration of my wording was a joke you sad little man)
oh and another thing.
just because i'm not a sheep doesn't make me a troll !
i expected more.
i post my opinion.
thats the point of this.
if you have a different opinion then post it.
calling people a troll because they don't agree with you is a bit sad.
YOU LET YOURSELF DOWN !
1. you make a deal of my response.......in your response !!!!!!
2. it was my ps3 so yes i can get another.
3. i insult my brother all the time you had no effect in that, its what brothers do.
if you weren't an only child sired from a drunken mistake you might get this.
put your wiener down.
move away from the screen.
find a mirror.
look in to it.
is that really what you want from life ?
Seems like your brother is the smart one in the family.......
It's HIS machine and he didn't pay full price for it...he can do whatever he damn well pleases with it...he's the smart one......haha you better stay on his good side in 2008, otherwise you'll be begging him to play HIS PS3.....oh and "i the smart one"...well you most definitely are...considering you're one of them "special" kids...
haha seems like I hit a nerve....actually what's sad is you trying to explain yourself when I really don't care what you have to say haha....but apparently YOU care enough about what I have to say to start whining "I can buy a PS3 if I want to!! I have money! I have money!!"...you saaaad little girl....oh and I made you insult your brother.....that made me laugh......
1. Some people call that an argument.....you dumb f%#ck...
2. So you sold your PS3, so you can later buy another one again...my response to that is you're a stupid consumer who doesn't know how to spend his money....you probably have a 360 right?
3. I don't care for you, your brother, or the incestuous relationship you two may have going on, it's not my business......and from what I've been reading, out of the two of you....you're probably the abortion that survived in the family....
"put your wiener down." are you a twelve year old girl??
"move away from the screen.
find a mirror.
look in to it.
is that really what you want from life ?"
haha now that's probably something your mom told you earlier in the day....isn't it?....I'm right haha say it....
No matter how long the game is it is still a great game.Don't start trolling this thread because it's because a anticipated ps3 game turned out to be good!
I think HS is worth its money. It provides at least 6 hours of gameplay for one run through and I am sure most people would want to play it again.
and no multiplayer, what your telling me is I can beat the game through about a single day, it's worth a rental at best if thats the case, is not, just really budget priced, like $20.
its a great short game..and it got good scores..everyone should buy it
How the hell does an article about developer afterthoughts attract a damn troll?
why do heavenly sword developers limit our playtime.there were times i had love to have more enemies but the fact is they were too little especially in the arena battles and the final act.com on developers dont give us a time or the amount of enemies we should kill?500 oh my god.we needmore enemies and more arena battles.i think we should get a survival mode.hey developers when it comes to heavenly sword,its a good game the enemies were little that triggered the low scores because players never get satisfied because of the small amount of enemies we fight against.com on developers we are not kids give us the freewill to play not a time or a number"500".hope u take me seriously
Going to pick this up tomarrow its going to be hard to sit through school.
Remember folks, many of the Resident Evil games could be beaten in under 2 HOURS, I loved the first three.
gears of war(x360/pc) - 5-6 hours + online - avg. 9-9.5
bioshock(x360/pc) - 6-7 hours (no online + repeat game for new ending - lame) - avg. 9-9.5
god of war(ps2) - 9-10 hours (no online) - avg 9-9.5
heavenly sword(ps3) - 7-8 hours (no online + better graphics) - avg. 8-9
it`s looks like someone is biased. =))
yeah.. dude.. suddenly the game is - "short" q:
retarded reviewers, they are. they're all suffering from selective memory loss and so are most of the fanbois. q:
bioshock(x360/pc) - 6-7 hours- You know that's not true. you couldn't finish Bioshock in under 10 hours if you ran straight throught the game. It took me about 22 hours.
Gears was short but not as short as your saying and as far as replay, it is the most played xbox live game.
got my special edition Press Disc yesterday.
this game is totally amazin. never played anything like that before.
best graphics on a videogame system ever.
fighting kicks so much a§§
already played 8 hours .. not finished yet but i will play this game over an over again. combat is much better than in God of War.
What extras does it have?
Press Disc with Artworks, Videos and Interviews.
Everything in a polished sleeve.
I also got a Warhawk leatherbook - styled like a pilots logbook.
