While some of the people who have written reviews for this game complain that it is too short, I say no. I think that the length of this game is perfect. We know that it is part of a trilogy, and we all know that the goal of any good movie/game/book, is to leave us clamoring for more. I want to have something to look forward to and Heavenly Sword has done that. So what makes this game so great? Well, everything that all the other positive reviewers have stated. The graphics are amazing, the ambient sounds come through so clear and life like that sometimes I felt as though I was actually there (a little hokey I know but true). The story line had me hooked from start to finish and that does not happen very often. My mom stopped by for a little while while I was playing and just sat on the couch watching me play for a good half hour. She asked me if I have seen this all the way through yet, as if it were a movie. The only reason this game did not get a ten is because of a few glitches that I noticed. And though these glitches did not hinder the game play in the least bit, they were enough to throw me out of "being in the game" for a few minutes. I would recommend you rent this game, play it all the way through, enjoy it, and then go out and buy it. The only way great games like this get to tell their complete stories, is if we go out and spend some money. If for nothing else, you get to show off how sexy the game looks to all of your 360 friends.

This game was a lot of fun but I beat it easily in one day. It would be a 9 or 10 if it had been longer. The graphics were beautiful and the game play stays exciting (It varies from sword fighting to shooting arrows or cannons). There are very cool villains and characters. It is a great rent.
