This review is from: Heavenly Sword (PS3) (Video Game)
While this game has a linear format and is your basic hack & slash, it is redeemed by awesome graphics, gameplay and some of the best character acting I've seen. The characters, especially the bad guys, are great fun and beautifully rendered. The combo attacks are really well animated and watching about 10 enemies flying up in the air around you is very satisfying. Once you get the hang of it, throwing projectiles and shooting arrows using the PS3 motion sensitive pad is suprisingly enjoyable. The scenery is spectacular and the camera angles are never uncomfortable as they seem in aother games. I now feel my purchase of a PS3 is justified and I will certainly look forward to future releases from developers Ninja Theory.
