Heavenly Sword is truly an amazing & entertaining experience. My brother & I played thorough it in 2 nights. It probably took us about 8 to 10 hours to get through since some of the bosses were a little tricky. What stood out to me the most about this game was its production value. I have never seen acting so good in a game before, & not just the voice overs. Read More

Product Overview

Emotionally charged, stunningly beautiful, and delivering unprecedented dramatic character performance, Heavenly Sword showcases the power of PLAYSTATION 3 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. The story builds around the ancient Heavenly Sword, which once belonged to a powerful deity. It can never be wielded by a mortal without it slowly, but inevitably draining their life-force. When the invading King 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.

Review Not content to rest upon their Grecian laurels, Sony is challenging their very own Kratos for the top title with Heavenly Sword. And while Kratos does wear a skirt (don't hurt me, Kratos, please) he's not exactly what you'd call feminine. That's fine with our heroine Nariko who has hotsexy enough for the both of them...I can not remember the last time I cared so much about the characters in an action game, and not just the heroes, the villains as well...The facial expressions, body language, and the lip synch are so spot-on it's uncanny. I found myself actually excited for more story exposition, rather than disappointed I was dropping out of the action...However, while Heavenly Sword has a lot of art, including tons of unlockable art and even animated cartoons, it's comes up a little thin in the game department...On the other hand, this is one of the few games I've felt the urge to replay on a harder difficulty, just because those 7 hours were so sweet. Nariko's time on earth might be cut short prematurely, but she does offer a small taste of the milk of paradise.
