Been playing "Heavenly Sword" with photographer Kevin Qualls for the last couple of nights. Between us we've gotten through roughly half of the game. Not too shabby. Kevin and I trade off- I play sword-wielding Nariko and he plays the arrow shooting Kai.
I think its difficult to overstate what a stunning a achievement this is for Sony. I don't know if this game is the only good reason to own a PS3, but its certainly one of them. I'm digging the motion-sensitive controls and the refined beauty of the graphics. The plot is good, a little over-the-top in places, but its not unforgiveable.
This game is remarkably well-executed. But my favorite character is Kai. She's the perfect foil for Nariko and she reminds me a bit of Bjork.
The kitty hat ain't bad either.
