Heavenly Sword is a new third-person action IP exclusive to the PS3. It was originally developed for the Xbox 360 but was passed by Microsoft before Sony Computer Entertainment picked it up. The player takes the role of a girl who only has a few days left to live and decides to spend her last days battling an invading army.
Heavenly Sword plays as a martial arts game with melee and ranged weapons. The action is considered cinematic. Heavenly Sword features a countering system that that lets you reverse the fight when you block an opponent�s attacks. You can rotate the camera by rotating the PS3 SIXAXIS controller. Objects in the game can be picked up and thrown at your enemies. As you lay on the damage and perform combos, a meter will fill that lets you unleash craziness on your foes by completing a minigame like in God of War.
