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...

This game is a Heavenly Sword swinging slasher!
17 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

Heavenly Sword was one of the first installments for the Play-Station 3. It was, hands down, one of the best opening adjustments for the fairly new console.

The plot was...well, I'll put it this way, it's not possible to assume what happens next. This game's story was very outstanding and almost unbelievable. Not predictable in the slightest. I'll leave it to the player to unravel the game for themselves, but I can assure you that this game is definitely full of plot-twists.

I might add that this game has excellent, superb graphics. Almost every scene looks real. Everything from real sweat running down Nariko's cheek to stunning hand-to-hand combat that just can't be beaten. This installment has got the icing on the cake, so you don't need to worry about the game play.

However, this game, in general, was also very, very short. I would say it took maybe 7 hours to beat. I don't know, maybe I wouldn't have been so disappointed had I not spent 60 bucks for it.

All in all, to sum it all up, this game is surely worth the buy, as long as you can find it for about 30 bucks. Yeah, any higher price and I'd say it wouldn't be worth the time or money. But you should check your local stores and see if this game's in stock, you'll probably want this one in your collection!
