Doesn't age well

Ng Wangqing Andrew, Amazon
1 March 2010
  • Summary: I have just finished this game. It took maybe 7 hrs? But considering how shallow the combat and gameplay is, I guess thats a good thing. I am a big action fan junkie, and I played and loved Ninja Gaiden 1&2, Devil May Cry, and all God of War games. So I was pretty excited for this. The cutscenes are terrible. The voice acting is overdone, and made me cringe. Worst yet, some are unskippable.

Heavenly Sword PS3 - far from heavenly!

  • Summary: This game is OK at times, but I wasn't blown away by it in the slightest. The controls can be a bit too basic at times and too complicated at others. There's not much help with regards to tutorials, meaning you can easily get stuck at one point, getting killed time and time again, which is very frustrating. The graphics aren't the best either, but are better in the cut-scenes than in gameplay.

This is one of the games I got with my ps3.

  • Summary: And to be honest it is really weak. Sure the cut scenes are excellent and it is really wel developed but the game is really dull. I traded in my 360 elite to get a ps3 (some time ago) I got this, motorstorm, resistance and untold legends dark kingdom. To be honest if it hadn't been for resistance I would have gone straight back and gotten rid of the ps3. Normally I like a bit of hack and slash action, I love conan, god of war and numerous others but this, not so much.

It's All Hack, Slash and Flash

S. Porter, amazon.co.uk
23 May 2009
  • Summary: I rather liked the pretty graphics, but calling this type of game "adventure" is like calling Lord of the Rings "sci-fi", it just doesn't fit the description. The game is another in the long line of games where you wind up travelling from one pretty stage to another, yelping and spinning your way through hordes of anonymous enemies who are hacked to bits in a shimmering haze of elaborate flashes whilst you randomly mash away at the controls.

Heavenly Bored

  • Conclusion: It's one of those games you play a pair of times and you get bored of doing the same all the time. Good graphics but a game is much more than that. Nahhhh!

Length? What length.

Ottawan, amazon.co.uk
12 November 2007
  • Summary: This game has serious issues. The gameplay is fun and nobody can deny that the aftertouch system with the projectiles is one of the most inventive uses of the sixaxis controller but the whole game was spoilt by the basic storyline, repetetive fighting and short gameplay. In a game length isnt important but when paired up with mind numbing repetetive battles for example the last three "scenes" of the game are fighting the same boss in similar forms where the only...

No depth

Northern Monkey "Old Man Crag", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: After reading Hellish "Adi Bunn"s review I have to say I am in complete agreement with him. Unfortunately, unlike Hellish I didn't play the demo but went straight out and bought it on it's release. A decision I now feel was a mistake. The game is visually gorgeous and does a great job of showing off the graphics potential of the console. The story line is pretty good and the characters are well scripted. However, the game falls hugely short on it's gameplay.

Knappt godkänd

Tompa1978, Prisjakt

  • Summary: (2010-12-05) Helt klart en besvikelse då jag hade förväntat mig något bättre. Det är ett enormt enformigt spel där man egentligen bara ägnar sig åt två saker. Sedan bör jag påpeka att spelet känns gammalt. Det har nu några år på nacken vilket gör att det i jämförelse med exempelvis God Of War 3 är långt ifrån samma standard och spelglädje. När det släpptes må det ha varit bra, men i dag är det inte det, i mina ögon. Snygga miljöer dock.

Falta muito pra ser sucessor de GOW

SHEVCHENKOACM, MercadoLibre
13 August 2008
  • Summary: Esperei muito pra jogar este jogo e pra mim foi uma decepção. A personagem nem se quer pula. Nao consigo entender como querer comparar este jogo com o incrivel GOW. Ate mesmo o GOW 1 e melhor que este jogo. A unica coisa que podemos fizer que é interessante é a possibilidade de utilizar o controle como forma de alterar a direção de flechas, misseis entre outros.
  • Pros: Historia interessante., Utilização dos sensores do joystick
  • Cons: Jogabilidade pessima;, Combos pessimos, Inimigos Pessismos, RESUMINDO HORRIVEL
