is this some sort off sick conspiracy or what? I played the demo and it was above average but not great by any means. Why are we celebrating medicore bullshit which is above average at best. And talk about stealing ideas. First this rips of devil may cry to the bone, then dantes inferno decided to steal god of wars style, image, controls etc. Roll on god of war 3!! we need a breath of fresh air.

"bottom line, the games design looks brilliant, does a game have to innovate to be fun and game of the year….NO!! it has to BE FUN. idiots" THATS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS SAYING. TTTTHHHHHHHEEEEE GGGGGGAAAAAMMMMMMEEEE IIIIIIIISSSSSSS RRRRRREEEEEPPPPPEEEEETTTTEEETTTTIIIIVVVVEEEE AAAAANNNNNNDDDD BBBBOOOORRRRIIIINNNNGGGG!!!!!!!!!! do i have to put it in huge 100 size font with flashing neon lights to get that through your thick skull? and saying heavenly sword sucked renders your opinion moot because heavenly sword certainly did not suck.

Good game but it really is overrated I would put it 8.5 BTW “The first truly “next generation” sure?? but why it has XBOX(the first one not the 360) graphs?

Bayonever is overrated, Heavenly Sword was the first truly next - generation action game and i doubt Bayonetta will even beat that let alone Dante's Inferno let alone God Of War 3.

Lol, Heavenly Sword? Is this some kind of joke? That game was really bad... I mean, the parts where you could actually play it. Just do yourself a favour and download Bayonetta's demo to see what a good game is all about!

The Bayonetta demo blew balls. It's a button mashing fest, which isn't a bad thing... but it's nothing new. They just threw dozens of combos so that you could have fun button mashing. I do like the combat though... and I would like the game... if they had built it around another character besides Bayonetta. She's so freaking lame. And to Joel... Heavnly Sword was awesome... you obviously never played it. It could have used more variety in the exploration... but the combat was top notch... probably the best this gen actually. Unlike Bayonetta, it WAS NOT just a button mash fest.

Joel, i doubt you've ever played Heavenly Sword. HS was amazing.....a little short but amazing. The combat was perfection. If you want to see what a GOOD game is all about then either pick up Heavenly Sword or wait for God Of War 3.
