This game is like 3 years old, but you can't find anything so beautiful and engaging so far.

Heavenly sword is a tale of heroism, of revenge, of hope. It starts with the beatiful and terrible Nariko, probably the best badass ever, and goes on slashing everything that moves towards king bohan, the tyrant of the land, who wants desperately the magic sword. Nariko was born to use it, and fights her way to kill the king. I'm not telling more, because the story is one of the best you'll ever find in videogames.
The graphic is astonishing, unbelievable, let's you think how come the recent games doesn't have their graphics at this level. This game is 3 years old, but still has probably the best graphic i've seen so far in any PS3 or Xbox game.
The game is a pure Hack'n'slash, but let you use 3 sword techniques, and a whole big list of combos to perform. Once you finish the game once, it is a pleasure to restart it and try all the combos you've unlocked, expecially if you want the beat the game at the hardest difficulty level.
As you may probably have heard, the game can be beaten in 6 hours, and goes strait forward to the end, without side missions or anything; well, you have to consider that there's an animated series to unlock, as well as other extra stuff, and to unlock it you have to take orbs, obtained by combo rate and how you do in each level. I can assure you, it is not so easy and when you need the lest orb to unlock the final part of the series, you'll be playing like the devil to get it.
Enough said, I'll not get tired to say that this game is 3 years old but it is way better of almost every other game in the market, and you can get it for let the 15 dollars. What do you need more? Go buy the f...g game dude!
