Surprised there wasn't a thread about the full release yet. At least something good came out of my 360 dying, otherwise I may not have ended up buying this game. Yes, its short but its also one of the best games I've ever played. It really is like playing a movie. Andy Serkis, the guy who played Gollum and Kong, plays Bohan, an evil King, and he is one of the best villains ever. He was also the 'dramatic director,' yes I watched the 'making of' special afterwards, and it shows When all the cutscenes look like this, you sometimes forget you're playing a game. The combat system is great too. You have a couple different stances once you get the heavenly sword and you block different types of attacks with different stances. Its hard to explain but the way that nariko moves is pretty amazing, hit triangle from a guy who is a couple steps away and she'll jump and transition into the attack seamlessly. Everything just flows really well. There are a couple parts where you use the sixaxis to guide arrows or cannonballs, you can turn that off and just use the analog sticks if you like, but I found them to be a lot of fun. Although I still think that Gears has better graphics, this game blows it away artistically. GoW just had a bunch of boring and dull settings. In HS, you're in environments where you can see miles away. The last boss battle is especially impressive as there are over 2000 enemies on the battlefield as you're fighting Bohan. So if you don't want to spend $60, this game deserves at least a rental. I beat it in a day easily. Once you finish it, a hell mode is unlocked. You can also go back to any previous mission to try and score more style points in order to win more medals or whatever they're called and unlock extra content. Anyways, I'd have to say this is the most impressive next-gen game I've played yet.
