Heavenly Sword (Platinum)

Emotionally charged, stunningly beautiful, and delivering unprecedented dramatic character performance, Heavenly Sword' showcases the power of PLAYSTATION'3 (PS3') computer entertainment system. A dramatic tale of revenge sees Nariko, a fiery red-haired heroine, embark on a quest for vengeance against an invading King and his army.

When the invading King (played by Andy Serkis) destroys the warrior clan that guards the Heavenly Sword, the clan leader's daughter, Nariko, takes up the sword in a desperate fight for survival. Nariko must now pay the ultimate price as she embarks on one last mission of vengeance against the King and his army before her life is finally and irreparably overtaken by the omnipotent Heavenly Sword'

Andy Serkis, the world's leading CG actor, famous for his roles as Gollum in 'The Lord of the Rings' and Kong in 'King Kong,' was heavily involved in the creative process. As well as starring in Heavenly Sword as the villain, King Botan, Andy was a major contributor to the character development, writing, casting, directing and performance capture for the PS3 title.

Great but not God of War

Heavenly Sword is a classic, yes its short and easy but its great fun. Not as good as God of War but a good game to play while waiting for God of War III

Good, but short...

I do not want to sound bashful, but how does "RUBBISH!" qualify as a review (referring to previous "reviewers" comment on the game)? If one cannot comment properly on a game, or at least elaborate on your opinion, just give it a rating and move on... Let's rather look at the game... First the pros: 1. PS3 game, so the graphics are up to scratch; 2. Fantastic and believable voice acting and characters - doesn't sound forced or "corny"; 3. Controls and fighting is easy to master and handles smoothly - rocking combos!!; 4. SIXAXIS control put to good use - my favourite part of the game; 5. Good overall story line. The cons: 1. Way too short; 2. A possible "God of War" clone, but with a woman as the main character (not a bad thing...); 3. TOO SHORT!! To sum it up - overall a really enjoyable game (if third person action adventure games with an oriental twist, are your thing) which looks good, plays good and sounds good, but with just that one little flaw - IT's JUST TOO SHORT!

RUBBISH!
