Heavenly Sword Review
Posted: 17 months ago, last updated 7 weeks ago.
At the end of a fight at the start of the game you seem to die, waking in a field and speaking to the power within the sword about what has transpired previously. From there you go on a mission to find out what happened to your tribe.
Although Heavenly Sword initially looks like a basic fighting adventure, like Enslaved, it develops into an experience reminiscent of Ico's beauty. It's a compact and relatively short game but one that at times feels more like a movie narrative.
