You know, I thought I'd like it. But I didn't. I loved the art style, but the action and such was just so bland, and the puzzles so frustrating, some of the fights so irritating, that I can't find a new home for the 360 version of it soon enough.

Anyone want to buy it off me??

The production values are very high, from the score to the Andy Serkis directed cut scenes (he also acts as the villain via mocap and seems to be channelling Alan Rickman in Prince of Thieves) and there's some pretty - if entirely linear - environments.

The combat isn't nearly as strong and does get repetitive but what kept me hooked was the well made cut scenes and quirky ideas like steering arrows/cannon balls/bodies after you launch them and throwing hundreds of enemies at you.

It's short but it's worth playing.
Heavenly Sword was AMAZING for the first 1/4

Then the cut scenes got all WTF and stupid, the story fell apart.

But the graphics were amazing, and the fighting wasn't BAD, but someo of the bosses felt cheap and incredibly unbalanced.

I got it on sale from Amazon last black friday and for the price, I wasn't disappointed.



NOW, however, I would like to make it clear to everyone that I will be MIA for eons, simply because Mass Effect 2 is out, and my life is finally full of awesome.
