7/10

Good graphics, repetitive gameplay, 6-7 hours to complete (no wonder demo is so short).

Looks like gameplay and lasting appeal is where it fails... new the lasting appeal would be low since it has no MP or anything like that but gameplay is suprising. The demo and videos give off a good feel, wonder what this reviewer thought of God of War since they are very similar.

I was reading the Gametrailers forums about this. Most people were saying "We don't care about UK reviews".

*scratches head*

Bloody arrogant fools.

Still am, I knew the gameplay would be repetitive. And most other games are sadly not very long these days.

Wow, reading that review, it looks like the game hits on every single one of my pet peeves. Ah well, its not like I own a PS3 in the first, and now I have one less reason to get one.

The game kind of turned me off when I found out there was auto jumping/blocking. A game like this I think the player should be allowed total freedom of movement at any given time.

I hope all the people that were looking forward to this game won't let ONE review make them not buy the game.

Reviews usually don't stop me from buying a game, even if they're "bad", and 7/10 certainly isn't bad at all. The only thing that may stop me from purchasing it is the 6 hour length.

For example, I bought Harvest Moon for the PSP even though most review sites gave it 5 or 6 out of 10, and I love/play the **** out of it.

Reviewers are typically snotty dip****s, and their opinion doesn't mean jack. They rated Harvest Moon down so low because it was basically a port of the ancient PS1 version....so what? Does that change the fact that it is a good game?

I see where you're coming from with you complaints on the game's length. Despite the reviews so far, I'm looking forward to Lair more than Heavenly Sword. I can always get my action/adventure fix with games like DMC and GoW. However getting to fly around + blow **** up with a dragon = Day 1 purchase for me.:)

6 hour play time = rental unless you want a showcase title for the PS3.

Eh, I wouldn't use this as my showcase title. Every time I show people the demo they ask, "Why does her hair look like that?".

This is kind of a bad start to Sony's fall lineup but hopefully Warhawk gets the attention it deserves next week.
