its pretty but any way you swing it, its another button masher, and i kinda dislike those little minigame action sequences... but i must admit the lighting and texturing is very nicely done. Would be nice to see some more games with developers taking the time to tune the textures like this

If you get a handle on the demo from the PSN and actually 'learn' the combos, it's not a 'button masher' as some like to claim. There is depth to it.

QFT. When I started mashing in the demo, the worse I got - you have to time your blocks and attacks aswell, there's a little bit of strategy involved. And I imagine the full game will have more difficulty where you'll be forced to learn a few combos, e.g. to break down enemy shields etc. or you wont get to strike them at all!

Holy shit it is such an amazing and beautiful game,, the graphics and especially the art design.

I wish the demo didn't stop so early so I could play this demo infront of me :(
But the game is out in around 22 days anyway so I have already pre-ordered it :D.

Thanks Blim!

Graphics are no doubt just gorgeous, but im concerned at the A.I just looks plain boring after having to deal with the AI from NGS.

I liked the little throwing the hat segment, slow mo effect was cool, i hope they use that more through out the game.

They had that slow motion throwing thing in the demo. Like everytime you hit the enemy it goes in a few seconds of slow motion.

But yeah about the AI, they most definitely attack, but the AI in NG after Hard is just cheap though, they made them cheap.


We have yet to see how many difficaulties Heavenly Sword got and what the AI can do.

The way the hair looks and moves really annoys me. Looks like a bunch of red plastified ropes which go mental after the slightest movement and don't mind any kind of gravity or matter.
You can't see it that clearly in this video, but in a vid from a while back it was a lot more obvious

Fighting looks cool though

HEhe well those shaky boobs from NG Sigma on Rachel or any of the DOA girls arent exactly realistic.

Hair is a bitch to make in games, even today.

Thats why I vote for cool short style hairs, even on girls.
Like neck long, that way no more Mr Clipping or wierd movements.

Looks like they defetively fixed the frame rate problem since the demo however.

Still not my type of game, and specialy not the character animations of her, just a mess to look at.

...just a few more days...

So THAT'S why the demo was so short. The battles afterwards are exactly the same. Something tells me Heavenly Sword might get very repetitive.

The AI is still really really dumb.

Looks very pretty, but that's all I can say. I hope this isn't the final build, saw quite a few glitches. Could get very repetitive if it's just attack small army of enemies, then fight boss, then fight small army, boss, rinse and repeat.
