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...

Nariko and the Heavenly Sword
17 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first got my Playstation 3 one of the first game demos I try was Heavenly Sword. After a friend of mine suggest it I begin to get curious about the game and had to play the full game.

Now that I have played the game I have to give my review of Heavenly Sword.

You play Nariko the woman who uses the Heavenly Sword. Legend has it the weapon was made by the Gods themselves.

The game play in the game feels like God Of War where you have to put a button on screen on command to ensure damage. Also you get to unlock new combos and attacks as you play as well. Along with puzzle solving to make the game a challenge and it is without a doubt that.

The game's story is very interesting from the start as we see our hero struggle to protect those she cares for and how she deals with her father.

The Graphics in the game are some of the most beautiful ever in a game, the level designs are so amazing from the waterfall to the mountains. The character designs are very good as well and Nariko the protagonist is so beautiful.

The voice acting is very well done with a talented cast for each character.

The controls in the game are a good feel for how the game makers wanted the game to be.

The game does have some issues some of the enemies are tough to defeat also most puzzles can test your patience. But the game does reward you for it.

Over all the game despite some challenges is a beautiful looking game and with creative game play to go along with it.

Heavenly Sword gets a 8 out of 10
