Storyline

The Heavenly Sword - legend says that it was forged in heaven and once wielded by a deity, and that no mortal may wield it in battle without paying the ultimate price. The prophecy says that this deity will return in the body of a mortal man, born as a son to the leader of the clan which protects the sword from falling into the wrong hands, and whose destiny it will be to wield the sword once more to unite the people and show them the way to the Promised Land. In truth, a girl, Nariko, is born instead, and soon after the mother dies, and is immediately reviled by her clanmates as a target of blame for all their misfortune. Fast forward 23 years, and King Bohan seeks the Heavenly Sword. Nariko, now a highly skilled young warrior, is shouldered with the task of protecting the sword from him - but when she eventually decides to wield the Heavenly Sword and exact vengeance for all those who have died in its name, can she end Bohan's invasion and fulfil the prophecy before the sword drains...

Like Nariko, this game is beautiful and powerful
9 January 2008 | by (The Florida Keys) – See all my reviews

I would have given this game 10/10 if there had been just a bit more adventure to it (less linear). With the capabilities of the PS3 (the system I played it on) there is enough room and power to have this game more exploratory; like Assassin's Creed or any of the Grand Theft Auto games (and others I'm sure). This game was linear and had no interaction or random people to talk to or areas to explore. Nor were there other things you could do, other than just slash slash slash. Perhaps I should have judged it 8/10.

However, I put 9 out of 10 because of how well I enjoyed this game and the cinematic scenes in between battles. The story was quite nice and the cinematics were just like watching a movie with great motion and voice acting. I fully enjoyed this game for what it was and not what it could be. So that's why the 9 score.

If you liked Prince of Persia - The Sands of Time; you should also enjoy this game. Nariko is beautiful and Kai is cute and funny. I loved loved LOVED the 'after-touch' use in this game as well. It really added to the game to make up for any areas where it might have lacked.

I recommend this game and hope all enjoy it as much as I did. Again, though, if they make a sequel to this game, or whatever. I say to make villages and streets and characters that aren't necessarily essential to the driving of the game to its end. Otherwise, I loved this game.
