Oh well, best of luck to them. Hopefully this new game being multiplatform will get better results for them.

Heavenly Sword really raised the bar for cutscenes when it came out. They're going to really have to do something extra now that MGS4 raised the bar even higher.

mistertwoturbo4325d ago

Yeah but the difference is that MGS4 did it with actual in-game cutscenes and not .mpeg4 wizadry.

Ureval4325d ago

Its too bad those cutscenes lasted too long and werent very interesting.

Legend4325d ago

Nah. I'll take more gameplay please.

Darrius Cole4325d ago

Heavenly Sword should have used the game engine for the cut scenes. The in game graphics were more adequate to to produce beautiful cut scenes, in fact, I don't thing the cutscens that they used were any better looking than the in game graphics. However, doing it the way they did it create 3-4 second loading times at the oddest places.

Heavenly Sword needed about another six months to polish things like loading times, and the fight mechanic/movelist.

I hope SCE, who attains the IP of Heavenly Sword, produces a sequel.
The series has potential.

Voozi4325d ago

Well if Ninja Theory won't do it, the guys over at Santa Monica I think would fit the dev job perfectly once they're done w/ GoW III

The way HS ended...there has to be a sequel lol

Wolverick4325d ago

I would love for Santa Monica to take over this IP and create a HS2. The game would definitely be something special.

juuken4325d ago

Whatever they decide to do, I'm sure it'll be good.

Very short, but it was a good game. I think the next game will fair a lot better. They obviously know what they are doing, they just need to push more and give us more game. Heavenly sword needs to drop down to 29.99 and be part of the greatest hits lineup.
