Heavenly Sword (2007, Third-Person Action Game, PS3 exclusive) – 7/10 review

Heavenly Sword (2007)

7/10

With developers Ninja Theory spending about a year of development (about five) per hour of gameplay and getting the core sword-wielding gameplay to be utterly uninvolving, Heavenly Sword is a significant disappointment. However, there is some real quality here which deserves to be seen and played. The cut-scenes are the best in any game to date thanks to crisp pace, good performances and, gasp!, a sense of humour and humanity which successfully counter-balances our overly-earnest heroine. Backing that up is all of Heavenly Sword‘s outstanding Sixaxis gameplay which comprises about half the game and all the fun.

This game contains mild swear words and abusive dialogue and extended extreme violence with moderate gore, unpleasant scenes.

Classified 15 by BBFC. Suitable only for persons of 15 years and over.

Available on PS3.
