I just finished Heavenly Sword in it’s all brief glory and I have to say this one is a must play. Regardless of the playtime and everything else you must’ve heard, one thing that this games does that so many people will go without noticing is how much it pulls at your heart. One of my biggest problems anticipating the game was the main character, Nariko, seemed like this boarish amazon type woman that I don't particularly find appealing. But actually playing the game she is really a soft and powerful character with a great feminine touches. Just as well for the other characters. Including Kai, the trailers make her seem like a freak. But there's sweetness in her character... as well as a bit of bizarre. But we all know how I like bizarre.

THE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS ARE SUPERB

My only continuing qualm with the game would be how it maintains being so ambiguously asian. Like it can't decide whether or not it's ethnically chinese or japanese. She has a Japanese name, but the clothing style and tone is chinese. There are dialogue where they refer to the "Illustrious Clan" while being afraid to utter any actual name. The music ,albeit well paced and beautiful, doesn't make any choices either.

Heavenly Sword is the most beautiful and groundbreaking step melding cinema and gaming while also being best presented prettiest fake asian yet.

I got a small glimpse of the game from a friend. It is pretty impressive....for a PS3 game. And, Monty, you're right on everything. At least what I saw/played of it.

But I Still REALLY HATE that Sony STILL Refuses to show Actual gameplay in their Ads!! The game's beautiful, there's No reason to show Cinemas!! Fake ones at that!

And what's up with the incredibly long hair?!?! No worrior in his/her right mind would have have hair that long. I kept expecting her to either trip over it or get it tangled in the blades. lol

Heavenly Sword seems like a nifty enough game. :) But as short as it is said to be, I will wait to shell out maybe 30 bucks rather than 60 bucks. ;)

I enjoyed some aspects of the demo. The rope decent and cinimatic proactive action (Rope chop and falling pillar of importance), was fun. But the fight that followed took more beats than I would have hoped.

It does look good though. :)

Oh, and your movie? :drool:

I wish tot ry out Heavenly sword myself, but I have to wait on getting a PS3. But I know that will be my first choice game when I get it, Unless MGs4 or maybe Zone of the Enders 3 is out by then.. Oh How i hope for a ZOE3. Anyway, Those Screen shot look good, I can't wait to see Ayane & Kasumi Vs Rikku and Yuna, Unless their a nice twist at the end.

I have to say, nice work all round. Have been checking out the online series. Shame they won't be multi-platforming it.
