If God of War III is a 10/10 and the best game in the genre of all time then Heavenly Sword is a 4/10. (Retarded cousin is an adequate description).

Heavenly Sword had a crap story, choppy framerate, terrible combat, irritating ost, weird characters, terrible gameplay (no jumping made it feel like shit) and it's incredibly repetitive save for the couple of parts you play as Kai. Not to mention it's only about 5-6 hours long which is pretty much exactly half of God of War III which is 10-12 hours.

If you want the absolute best alternative to God of War whilst you wait for God of War: Ascension, you MUST play Castlevania: Lords of Shadow! That game is fucking fantastic! (9.5/10) If you've  aleady played that then you could give Dante's Inferno a go which is ok (6.5/10).

Bro, add me and lets play together during the Ascension beta. Im so fucking stoked for it :D. Im not sure what god I want to give my allegiance to x_X

 

 

To everyone else:
THANKS a lot for your thoughts. I actually redownloaded the demo and gave it a go. Initial impression was holy fuck that screen tearing and.. frames xD, well.. basically the 2007 / early ps3 game effect xD. But after the first encounter, I really had fun. Looking forward of playing the full game :)

I got it pretty cheap a long time ago. Years, actually. I only bought it for the hot female lead but it was a decent game. I wasn't a fan of the gameplay but the graphics were nice. I got bored with it around the the time you had to fight Flying Fox or that snake chick. I can't remember. Later on, I went back and beat it just to say that I did but I never felt like it was a must-play title. Had high hopes for it but it never lived up to them. Maybe if I had gotten it at around launch.

Im down for that as well.



I only played the demo, and the one thing I remember about it is that it was made during the "everything needs sixaxis support" era. So I didn't really enjoy the sixaxis motion controls but besides that it was...adequate I guess would be the word.

Platinums: Red Dead Redemption, Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet, Terminator Salvation, Uncharted 1, inFamous Second Son, Rocket League

gameplay was meh but the characters are great and it has the best voice acting of any videogame to date

Couldn't disagree more. While God of War was objectively a better made game, it certainly wasn't some super high standard to go for. If anything, it was far more of the same.

I'd rate it a 10/10 though :L, thats a pretty high standard to reach. So high that I am scared of Ascension having a lot to live up to lol
