Heavenly sword is an amazing game! I've played it at my job and its incredible. Both the graphics and gameplay are astounding.
That was just one person, further expressing his opinion. There are many others who feel this way. Me being one of them. Buy the system, play the game. You won't regret it.First things 1st, graphically the game is just mesmerizing. Character design is just beautiful as well as the execution of the movement. Surrounding throughout the game have so far made me quite often stop and just peak around during the rare breaks in constant mayhem that follows the game. One issue i did find was on pretty much all of the main characters, specially Nariko and the bad guys. If you look closely you can notice that collision of her hair of Flying Fox's blades get pretty poor from time to time and those parts tend to cross into the body or items around in a very "thorn in the eye" way. As for the sound, i was near speechless on my 1st play thru. Special effects and the surrounding are beyond realistic. If you listen closely you can hear the birds in the background and mostly only when they are actually close enough to hear. Weapon noise and clanking is based on the weight and size of the weapon and not just the type as it has been used in games thus far. As for the music score it is unprecedented in so many ways. As the game unfolds the music follows to a tee and manages to either uplift an epic battle or bring in more anticipation during a dramatic part and so on.
