They obviously put a lot of time and effort into making this game, which makes it so sad that it's only 6 hours in length.
Why waste all that time and energy just to cut it short?This game should have been 10-12 hours instead.
My gosh! He scared me! Mr. Thomas needs to put a little more emotion into it, or blink once in a while. That blank stare really messed me up!
i don't think a game that short should have ever been put at full price, but anything with andy serkis in it is worth purchasing.
After playing Enslaved, I've felt compelled to buy Heavenly Sword. The main criticism of the game seems to be it's length, but now that it's dropped in price it's not too big of a deal for me. Can't wait to play it!
Would like to thank all you here commenting on this review. You have sold me on the game and I will order today and enjoy by weeks end.
A 6 hour length is a criticism of this game? Well if this game got underrated because of this length, then any Call of Duty game should score below 5
I got a few unopened copies cheat at Target. Guys, hold on to this one. I think it will eventually be valuable like Suikoden 2, Panzer Dragoon Orta, or other desirable games.
one of the BEST, yet MOST UNDERRATED games i have everrr played,. and i have owned nearly every single console there is
Wish This was out for Pc / Xbox 360 i just completed enslaved and this game looks to have the same feel as it made by the same developer (nija theory ) dissapointing only for ps3 :(
6 hours is a huge lengthly epic game nowadays compared to the single player campaigns of games now :(
Totally agree with MAXIM-332971.Halo reach will pure bullshiit game.I think god of war 3 or maybe Gran tursimo 5 will GOTY 2010
Short like a summer action movie? I agree with you that the game might be short but Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time were 2 and a half hours of torment :´(
@GodGundamNT1........................Well I can tell you this for damn sure........I have been gaming for 24 years, and I have owned just about every console their is............ and I can tell you......I think the PS3 is one of the best, if not THE BEST console I have ever owned.... I own both 360, and PS3, and the PS3 exclusives are the best games out their. I think the 360 games are way,way, way overated. That is just my personal opinion.........There is no doubt about it that The PS3 does not get the credit it deserves.........Heavenly Sword is a fantastic game, that did not get enough credit.
@studfly you can blame it on the xbot marketing representatives on online forum boards and gaming websites for using doom and gloom tactics against the PS3
I dont get it........... this game was so fantastic....I think it made good use of the siaxis controller. I really liked this game....and even though the ratings are really good, but in my eyes a very underappreciated game, and should of got more credit......Believe it or not guys....this game has one of the best endings i have ever seen in a game.....Its really sad
I reckon this is an awesome game! I love it how us chicks can enjoy a feminine hack n slash! Can't wait for #2 :)
This game is brillant! (the only flaw this game has is it's length) Too bad the likelyhood of us seeing a follow up to this game is slim to none.
Idk how this game flew under my radar... probably b/c I wasn't into PS3 when it was first released... not the point ... point is, this game sounds wicked fun and is now on my play list. And with the same company releasing "Enslaved; Odyssey to the West" it looks interesting! Hope they're both as good as they look
$20 eBay game looking forward to playing it! Oh & I could care less weather or not it's a GOW-clone nuff said! Love thoes game too!!
This is a great game, I got this game when it first came out. I thought gamespots score for this game was way to low. That is why i dont really listen to gamespot. This game may be short, but it is fun as hell and has a superb story
Six and a half hours? That's almost as long as God of War.None of these types of games can keep a good length.
Honestly, this is an overrated game. Even though it looks great, gameplay has many flaws and it's way far from god of war for example...For most of this game, you get to mash mash mash and mash buttons...
its not as bad as COD4 - that was four hours long!!! Apparantly there's a good multiplayer though. 16 hours is what i consider to be reasonable. Anyway i normally get bored of it after that. i never complete games really. I completed GOW2 though but that was special!!!!
I tried the Demo, but I'm a little disappointed in it. The controls are way too jumpy. Or the controls, I guess just the reactions are... she jumps around like a maniac. And at one point I didn't know what to do against the enemies, as there's no explanation whatsoever and she just died over and over. I guess I'm disappointed that it's too much of a hack&slash type of thing... :\ Might try again, but... have my doubts I'll like it much better. I like the style and "movie" type of thing to it though. Oh well...
