Heavenly Sword: Why It's The Greatest Rental Title of All Time - GamerNode Review

The bottom line is this: if you want the best-looking game on the PS3, arguably the best-acted game of all time, or a game that reminds you why playing games are fun in the first place, get Heavenly Sword. GamerNode can't (and won't) try to convince you to purchase it, because despite how much they love it, they really can't justify spending 60 bucks on a game with little replay value and such a short length. They will, however, ask that you at least rent this. Heavenly Sword is the best game available on the PS3, and easily the greatest rental title of all time.

Just finished the game. Its an excellent game. Loved every minute of it only thing that killed it was the length. Simply put the game is too short. Other than that its an excellent game.

Yeah, i was watching this guy from Youtube play it live on Stickam and he finished it in one session. We were all surprised. It looked like a kickass game though, despite the lag.

HowarthsNJ3602d ago

This is one of those games where you replay your favorite chapters just to perfect your combat skills and because it's great fun to do so when you're finally good at it.

I hate to hear reviewers suggesting a rental over purchase because it's good for gaming to support the developers.

Rent if you're unsure, but make every effort to buy it if you can - whatever platform.

Support your system(s).

So many websites are saying Heavenly Sword makes a great rental.

Sony must love that. /sarcasm

Ri0tSquad3602d ago

There adding some online to this game in the future if it does well these guys are idiots.

radzy3602d ago

SOME DEMO'S ON THE 360 ARE LONGER THAN HEAVENLY SWORD. MAYBE SOME XBOXLIVE ARCADE GAMES TOO.

But I see what hes saying.

Ill probably play it again, but letting my friends play it when they come over is where Ill get my replay value.

fenderputty3602d ago

is a huge area of replay value for me.

Bits-N-Kibbles3602d ago

I've probably played or watched God of War being play about 5 or 6 times now... and God of War 2 at least 2 times... al thanks to my cheap ass friends and me being a push over...

MikeGdaGod3601d ago

i can't wait for the holidays when family and friends come over.

visually, Heavenly Sword squats and sh!ts on any title on any other console.

Im definatley gonna buy it, cus i know i will want to watch the cutscenes again. Is there an option to rewatch them without playing the game again, like resistance?

Rythrine3602d ago

After you play the game for the first time and see the video cutscenes, it will be included in the "unlocked videos" category.

First this - "if you want the best-looking game on the PS3, arguably the best-acted game of all time, or a game that reminds you why playing games are fun in the first place, get Heavenly Sword."
Then, this - "GamerNode can't (and won't) try to convince you to purchase it, because despite how much they love it, they really can't justify spending 60 bucks on a game with little replay value and such a short length."

By that way of thinking all the good games, in every format are always rent. Example - Bioshock, really nice game, goog graphics, finish once, well,never played again, good rent. Final Fantasy VII, well i will not talk about it, everybody knows it's a good game, finish once, humm, another rent ? really are this guys payed to say stuff like that ? i which i were the manager of Game or GameStage, would be really happy with the rents...

s8anicslayer3602d ago

how about gears of war?that was really short too!should that have been a rental too?these people gotta stop hating on sony and hoping they fail!this game hs is a great buy,highly reccomend

marionz3602d ago

gears was still longer then this game and obviously GOW has replay value, with cog tags to go back for and all the online modes

if a game like heavenly sword only offers a story mode that can be beaten in five hours and nothing to go back for then whats the point of buying it? its only going to collect dust after the first run through
