This game isn't getting the credit that it deserves and its funny how they review it and gives it a low score because it doesn't have online, did GOW, FF, NG and many more good games have online no so why are they dogging HS for it.

How would you even do online in HS? It wouldn't even make sense...

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.

Hm, I am in chapter 2 now, and I like it. Its a great game. ... should I say it now ... but ... Well, I am a fan of Insomniac. What really pushes HS ahead is its cinematics, which are all rendered thru the in game engine. The motion sensing needs some adjustments, but as soon as you get used to it, it adds some more value to the game.

I am very pleased with the facial animations in the game, and the storytelling visuals. I haven't seen a game yet, which splits the screen in real time and shows the second character (in sync with the big screen) in a dialog scene. A real new style element, IMO.

Why did I mention Insomniac. Well, the overall appearance in Resistance looks clearer, sharper and uses better filters with less studder. While I said the facial animations are great, some other parts lack of detail. The world is pretty narrow, almost no way to explore, very linear (and I like linear games, I don't think its an disadvantage). But, beside the small path you have to go thru, there's not much around (but, GoW isn't any different). The view and depth of the surrounding(s), however, is stunning.

And the second reason why I mentioned Insomniac is, because I got the Ratchet and Clank demo BD today. And that blew me away. While still in an early beta state, that tops HS pretty much. I still ordered HS to keep. One more in the top favorite list. The difference is maybe, HS is Ninja's first game (on the PS3), while Insomniac has a longer history, which clearly shows. Would be curios, what a HS sequel would look like. So, yes, I believe there is room for improvements.

But besides that, great game, great visuals (and acting), amazing audio. Good job Ninjas.
