Heavenly Sword: Times (UK) Review

The Sunday Times: "Heavenly Sword is a combat-based epic similar in style to the classic God of War PS2 title... At first glance the game appears to be the masterpiece that the PS3 has long been crying out for."

"The characters look great, the swordplay is spectacular and its eastern-flavoured locations are cinematically displayed. The gameplay, however, lacks intensity and sophistication... Despite its flaws, Heavenly Sword is marvellous entertainment."

Score: 4 out of 5 stars

HS is a true AAA experience .

BTW hs is pounding EU charts as we speak

It has climbed to top spots of PLAY,GAME,HMV and AMAZON UK.

This game is so damn awesome, it's messed up that Bioshock was so short and everyone is on its jock but Heavenly Sword is short and it's so bad becuase of it? I hate PS3 bashers.

Playing Bioshock a couple hours/day the game lasted me like 2 weeks. I got about 18 hours of gameplay in there. I bought HS but haven't opened it yet. I will do that tonight. I hope they have episodic content. But then there's the PS3 fans who say "360 sucks, you have to buy content that should've been with the game to begin with" and now they all want content for HS. *shrug*

NINJA THEORY WE NEED SURVIVAL MODE AS DOWNLOADERBLE CONTENT.OR U COULD CREATE ANOTHER DIFFICULTY MODE THAT LET US FIGHT WITH 3X THE NUMBER OF ENEMIES TO PROLONG THE PLAY.AS A MATTER OF FACT GIVE US A CHEAT WITH UNLIMITED HEALTH AND UNLIMITED ENEMIES IN THE ARENAS.IN ACCOUNT THE GAME SHOULD HAVE BEEN RATED 9.9.BECAUSE IT HAS A LOT OF POTENTIAL FOR FUTURE DLC TO PROLONG THE PLAY.THERE WERE SOO MANY BEAUTIFUL ARENAS AND PLACES THAT I HAD LOVE TO FIGHT BUT SIMPLY THERE WERE NOO ENEMIES.SO NINJA THEORY WITH THIS HUGE ENVIROMENTS AND ARENAS WE NEED SURVIVAL MODE OR ANOTHER DIFFICULTY MODE THAT TRIPLES THE NUMBER OF ENEMIES,LIKE FOR INSTANCE ON THE LAST HUGE BATTLE IT WOULD BE 1500 INSTEAD OF 500 ENEMIES.SURVIVAL SURVIVAL.AWESOME GAME INDEED,WORTH THE MONEY,ANYONE WHO RENTS IT WOULD REGRET BCOS O FUTURE DLC.

WHY is it that PS3 games just dont friggan run smooth?

During CUTSCENES ... the game gets choppy.

Its just annoying.

The game does some things so right ... but the *little* things that it does wrong (ex - framerate drops, audio cutout, and the occassional really dumb 'lets just stand here in a group and not move and get our asses beat' AI ) just really hurt the game.

I dont know about it being 6 hours ... I've been playing for about 4 hours (just met/beat Whiptail for the first time) and it dosent *feel* like the game is close to being over.

Im off to help the old man cross the bridge now ...
