Heavenly Sword is one of the best games ever made. It has a competent story (by fantasy fiction standards; by game standards its story kicks ultimate ass). It has incredible voice work and, thanks to motion-capture, it actually has acting by a top-notch cast. It’s story-telling techniques are unique, or at least they were, when the game released: it was in the pre-Uncharted 2 era. Probably the only thing you could hold against the game is the somewhat repetitive action, although even that was in no way broken, just not outstanding.
Why this game is so underrated is beyond me.
Yet even I, massive fan that I am, will not go as far as to call this game art.
