The canadian reviewer had this to say :-
Heavenly Sword's lush presentation, graphical prowess and fast paced action deliver an outstanding game experience that no gamer with a PS3 should miss. This fantastic voyage into a conflicted world battling over an ancient weapon is surprisingly full of life. The adventure might be a little shorter than you expected, however while you are on the clock you will be enthralled by fast paced action and exceptional cinematic aspects. For a game that could have turned into a generic hack n' slash, Heavenly Sword pulls away from the chains of Kratos and gives PS3 their first "must have" title in a while. Rent, or Buy, Heavenly Sword is a must.
