While Heavenly Sword may not be the triple A title some people expected it to be, it certainly has a few redeeming qualities:
- It has the best voice acting I've ever heard in a video game.
- It looks stunning.
- The story may not be that original, but it is well-presented.
- Combat is a lot of fun.
What holds it back is that it is very short. I beat the game in a weekend, and I'm not a hardcore gamer by any measure. I'm still trying to unlock some of the bonus material, but the main storyline isn't a huge undertaking. Heavenly Sword is a good game, but not a great game.
