Just started playing this game today! Really enjoying it
fauzman (on 01 January 2013)
@justthatgamer. In belated response to your comment, yes I mean SSM. I like both the GOW and HS series and I thought they would be the best devs to do a sequel to HS (since the original devs are busy at the moment) and alternate this with the GOW series. My point was I would have preferred this over a prequel which will likely not get as many sales as the main series.

I also think you are a bit confused - you mention HS as being mediocre but then say that SSM could make it and potentially see 3M+ sales.
DitchPlaya (on 13 October 2012)
Because it still sold well and Sony happen to have the rights to the engine and IP. A quality sequel can be pumped out in 2 years or less.
JustThatGamer (on 24 September 2012)
@fauzman Who do you mean by 'they'? Sony Santa Monica? I'm guessing so otherwise why would you mention God of War: Ascension. Anyway God of War III is the most acclaimed and best selling game in the genre of all time so why would anyone want a sequel the the mediocre Heavenly Sword over a new God of War game? Maybe when SSM finish GoW:A they could make Heavenly Sword 2 a launch game for the PS4 as a teaser for what a next gen God of War game could be like. I reckon if Sony Santa Monica made Heavenly Sword 2 it would sell > 3 million.
Kresnik (on 15 September 2012)
Beautiful game. Enjoyable, because they mix it up between Kai & Nariko, and the story has really kept my interest. It's a very simple story, but the characterisation makes it stand out. Really impressed with this game, and saddened to hear that the sequel was cancelled. Maybe one day, far in the future...
fauzman (on 25 August 2012)
I would much rather they had made a sequel to this then making that GOW prequel. I suspect a sequel would easily have sold > 2M.
Jay520 (on 30 May 2012)
Oh and the graphics are still wonderful even today!
Jay520 (on 30 May 2012)
Just started playing this game. It's pretty good!
Ultr (on 01 April 2012)
I would definately play it again with trophies, unfortunately Ninja Theory sucks nowadays^^ (open to be proved otherwise -> dmc...)
spurgeonryan (on 13 March 2012)
1.55 million and counting is not too bad though.
Dahum (on 18 February 2012)
this should have sold around 3+ million quite honestly.
Dahum (on 18 February 2012)
its a shame how this amazing game didn't reach its deserving sales.
ljigga (on 02 December 2011)
This game is one of the best ive played on my ps3...I wish there was a sequel. To bad they dont even make the original game anymore. Certain aspects of this game are better than GoW imo
slipknotfan (on 26 June 2011)
was only decent game around launch
A203D (on 23 June 2011)
Very nice game. a re-release with new features and trophies would probabily help!
Solid-Stark (on 10 May 2011)
Frozen sales are frozen.
Dahum (on 09 May 2011)
it should have a sequal which well definitely sell much more than the first
Dahum (on 09 May 2011)
this amazing game should have sold above 2 million for its gorgous graphics & sweet story & lovely gameplay
green_sky (on 24 March 2011)
Love this game. It is very short and very sweet.
don_poop (on 24 January 2011)
Disapointing sales for such a quality game!!
pslee (on 04 December 2010)
just bought it for $15 at newegg. finally!!!
Reiki (on 08 November 2010)
This game was probably played by over 2 million ppl. We have to take into account used sales that don't count for publishers. Having that in mind it is even stranger that there is no sequel because it would sell easly 2 million in 12 months.Compare Uncharted 1 and MAss Effect 1 with sequels of those games. Just imagine HS2 fixing probelms this game had + making it longer.
oni-link (on 22 April 2010)
I picked it up at walmart for $20, thanks to CAG for the tip!!!
Iveyboi (on 31 March 2010)
I just read the article that they lost money on this game. I understand given the difficulty programming the PS3 early but now they could make one with substantially lower costs and will achieve higher sales.
kowhoho (on 28 March 2010)
Taking a closer look, however, I can now see that they may not have anticipated the long legs with such a modest first week.
kowhoho (on 28 March 2010)
Agreed cloud. I was just checking this game's sale now to see why they didn't make a sequel, and the numbers were very surprising! GIVE US HS2 DAMMIT! People will obviously be interested.
forevercloud3000 (on 26 March 2010)
This game needs a SEQUEL!!! There is no way 1.4million wasn't enough to recoup costs and then some thats 1.4m*60=84million give or take after a tiny price drop(game is still 50dollars new).

E3 2010-Heavenly Sword 2 announced :D
ithis (on 23 March 2010)
I just wish check points would go after unskipable cut scenes, not before.
llyod85 (on 16 February 2010)
just finished my first playthrough and loved it. my only complaint was that I wish it went a little deeper. the length wasn't really an issue for me. i like being able to finish it in one or two sittings. then i can play it again.
guyincognito (on 13 February 2010)
With all the unnecessary sequels out there, this game actually deserves one
Hidalgo (on 23 January 2010)
Such a lovely game... One of my favourites this gen with Folklore and Condemned 2 (I'm reffering to plot-oriented games).
Dark Odin (on 20 January 2010)
I love this game! And I really hate ninja theory for not making a sequel...
PlaystaionGamer (on 04 January 2010)
love this game, Sony make friends with Ninja and make number 2 please
Severance (on 15 December 2009)
i just rebought this baby, selling it is the most idiotic mistake i did.
kunaixhaku (on 14 December 2009)
no greatest hits for this wow....1.38 mill is a great accomplishment, i think so anyway especially being single player with no multiplayer and a brand new ip at that.....sony what's wrong with you ppl over there....??!
MarshmallowMan (on 10 December 2009)
I knew they spent a lot of money on the voice cast and that they didn't sell as many copies as projected. But it would still be great to see a sequel, with maybe not as high production costs. Or maybe I'm just anxious to play God of War III...
ZorroX (on 20 November 2009)
The game kinda short, but still great.
Worth 30$, but somehow, Sony probably forgot about this game, if they are not making a platinum in NA for so long time.

I wonder, if anyone could contact Sony and tell them. I think, additional 200-300k in NA this would sell.
nextgreatchamp (on 17 October 2009)
they need to make this a greatest hits title, game is great and more ps3 owners need it.
Blaiyan (on 09 October 2009)
I hope you're countering the energy blast. You basically have to play tennis when bohan shoots energy balls at you. If you counter at the right time they'll fly back at him/hit him.
Bagaren85 (on 05 October 2009)
Saved by others :)
Egghead (on 29 September 2009)
This shouldve sold more in Japan = (
sexc_abbas (on 28 September 2009)
ye why dient they make a sequal for this game, it sold 1.37 million why wouldent they make a sequal, fuk thered um loll
Ldn.se (on 19 September 2009)
Can't win the last battle. Any advices please?
Globox (on 07 September 2009)
Demo was lame, combat was lame, i never got this. if they release trophies i might get it.
DaBuddahN (on 05 September 2009)
If it costs like 30 bucks now, I'd get it. You may still see a sequel, Sony owns the IP. But 60 bucks for a short game was a no no for me.
PlaystaionGamer (on 31 August 2009)
such an amazing game!!!! i really wanted a Heavenly Sword 2. it was ment to be a trillogy. sill companys falling out. had good sales to
XxXProphecyXxX (on 02 August 2009)
OMG why wont they make a sequel for this!!!
Kaixes (on 20 July 2009)
Way too short. Not worth the $60 I paid for it.
mikemill (on 29 June 2009)
I absolutely LOVE this game. Best voice acting and facial mo-cap animation ever in a video game. Really fun combat action, great characters... such a great game. It was definately too short but it was 7 hours of beautiful gameplay. Sony still owns the rights to the IP, even with Ninja Theory not on board. I would love Sony to keep this IP alive...
HelloMotto (on 28 June 2009)
what's up with the numbers in Japan?
binary solo (on 27 June 2009)
I'll probably try to buy a used copy of this, or borrow it off my cousin.
Catlana (on 23 June 2009)
Ninja Theory had a dispute with Sony. The game is fun and has incredible graphics but too short.
ithis (on 27 May 2009)
I was thinking that it would be quite easy story wise to make a Prequel for this game.
I would like that. Then set things up so that a sequel can be made with the girls from the first one. I would REALLY LIKE that :D.
Xen (on 15 May 2009)
Okay game. a 7 from me.
terislb (on 07 May 2009)
they probably expected god of war kinda sale numbers.. of which even the psp one has at least 1.7 million.. and they put a lot of money into this game
metalgearmatt (on 05 May 2009)
Why does Ninja Theory feel this game was a flop? It sold 1.3m!
TyePhoid_PAL (on 30 April 2009)
Amazing story, music, setting, graphics, animation and characters. I loved it.
PullusPardus (on 25 April 2009)
Tho i do hope they release the old games on PSN like this , Folklore and Unknown Kingdom ,

@Ithis , i agree , very very Beautiful game.
PullusPardus (on 25 April 2009)
i expected this game to sell less. now i wonder if they add trophies to it

@C_Hollomon
i dont think this can be released on PSN , its too big and uses the Blu-Ray alot. (im not talking about the size tho)
C_Hollomon (on 20 April 2009)
Sony should put this game on PSN like GT5 Prologue.
TheThunder (on 10 April 2009)
Sony two words

"Greatest Hits"
Heavenly_King (on 23 March 2009)
I really dont think that there will be ever be a sequel; and if there is, it wont be developed by ninja theory.
Signalstar (on 23 March 2009)
adjusted down
insomniac17 (on 16 March 2009)
Man, I would love a sequel for this game! It's just so good. I'm letting my friend borrow it (lent it about a month ago) and I'm dying to get it back. I needs moar Heavenly Sword!!
jadakiss1217 (on 13 March 2009)
Great game.Hope Sony makes a sequel.
ithis (on 13 March 2009)
Beautiful game.
NanakiXI (on 11 March 2009)
@NicholasCage

It will. Slowly but surely.
TyePhoid_PAL (on 15 February 2009)
Needs a trophy update. Flyin Fox!!!!!!!!!!!
NicholasCage (on 12 February 2009)
I honestly thought this would have at least 2mil sold
jmcraddock (on 03 February 2009)
ill think about getting it when its a greatest hits title (if it will be).
haxxiy (on 03 February 2009)
It has a shot at 2 million.
PullusPardus (on 28 January 2009)
DMC is nothing compared to this game, this is right up there with God of war
Artur (on 27 January 2009)
Almost at the end of the game...wow it has got so many great surprises.When Kai gets flashbacks of her past - that was such a sad and beautiful moment.
Skeeuk (on 23 January 2009)
this game begs a sequel.

2010 we will see it ive just found out.
Heavenly_King (on 16 January 2009)
I really wish a sequel/prequel for this game :D
MetalGearSolid_4ever (on 08 January 2009)
This game outsold PS3 version of DMC4!
terislb (on 07 January 2009)
the games has a great cast of characters especially kai ist just adorable
CaptainFuture76 (on 05 January 2009)
Not bad sales considering that the game wasn't bundled ( as far as I know ), but it deserves much more.
Barozi (on 03 January 2009)
lol I'm getting this game soon.
Only because of Nariko xD
MontanaHatchet (on 03 January 2009)
2 million? 2.5 million? Hrmm, I don't know about that.
erodrig85 (on 27 December 2008)
this game will reach 2.5 mill i hope this game its great on its artistivc and production values the femme fatale of games as tomb raider well this game its the female version of God Of War! but awesomely cool gameplay
Zlejedi (on 24 December 2008)
It looks to have a chance of reaching 2M in 2009 especially if they make it $30 in US.
Egghead (on 23 December 2008)
Do you think they ever made back their investment, yeah it sold quite nicely but heck this game cost loads of money
cool48 (on 22 December 2008)
@ makingmusic, That's exactly my situation.
Bboid (on 21 December 2008)
is there a planned sequel to this? I enjoyed the game but want it to be longer.
Damstr8 (on 21 December 2008)
@globox

25,000 this week
makingmusic476 (on 20 December 2008)
This really needs to go Greatest Hits in NA. I know quite a few people that want to buy it, but can't justify $60 for a 6 hour game, so they either wait or buy it used (losing Sony one sale down the road).

This game should be $30 now, SCEA!
Damstr8 (on 17 December 2008)
1.3 million sold=failure?

I disagree
Globox (on 15 December 2008)
is t his game really selling 20 k a week? I have hard timeto believe in that...
To bad game failed, could have been next big hack n slash game.
L1L_D420 (on 06 December 2008)
i say 1.35 million by the end of 08
L1L_D420 (on 06 December 2008)
i say 1.35 million by the end of 08
jerseyboy609 (on 06 December 2008)
2 million seller soon?
Damstr8 (on 03 December 2008)
almost 20k this week.
FPSrules (on 29 November 2008)
i don't see why they won't make a sequel. it can't be because of they making god of war, god of war and heavenly sword are made by two different developers

when they drop the price i buy it, idk why i never brought it cause i loved the demo
outlawauron (on 11 November 2008)
This has done really well. It should get a Greatest Hits soon.
kunaixhaku (on 08 November 2008)
a game that had opening sales of about 100,000 has good legs
Morning_Wood (on 07 November 2008)
i think your right gearbox. they cancelled Eight Days as well, was looking forward to that.
Gearbox (on 31 October 2008)
"Sony has announced there will be no HS 2. My guess is they are too busy with God of War."
hopefully i was wrong on this.
SpartanFX (on 31 October 2008)
I demand a sequel ,,it was awesome
ruibing (on 19 October 2008)
Sold pretty well for an original IP under unfair criticisms from the press.
Aprisaiden (on 11 October 2008)
Great game -- same though about its average sales...
Crystalchild (on 20 September 2008)
This game is an awesome one, but it would be worlds better, without this awful tearing..

TyePhoid_PAL (on 29 August 2008)
Flyin Fox Excellent character.
Dark Odin (on 28 August 2008)
me too TyePhoid_PAL
blazinhead89 (on 26 August 2008)
Really good Game
TyePhoid_PAL (on 12 August 2008)
Would play through this again if a trophy patch arrives.
mr_gappy (on 02 August 2008)
awesome game a hidden gem worth picking up since its now platinum
Gearbox (on 22 July 2008)
Sony has announced there will be no HS 2. My guess is they are too busy with God of War.
Dark Odin (on 19 June 2008)
really sad that ninja theroy isnīt going to do HS 2.

they are working on a new franchise mutiplataform.

Iīd like to see how the story continues!!!!
chinmoku (on 27 May 2008)
Great, another million seller.
Skeeuk (on 17 May 2008)
good game, to bad there wasnt much to go back to, i might pick this up again if i can find it cheap,
Christhor (on 15 May 2008)
I will buy this when I buy Haze =D
Gangster_Gamer (on 13 May 2008)
Gratz on this game reaching a million. I won't lie I had my doubts, now we just need Uncharted to hit 2 mil, which I doubt even more.
HanzoTheRazor (on 11 May 2008)
9/10 Much better than they said! Happy about the 1mil mark too...
EHSTEVE (on 06 May 2008)
Now it's 1 million
Munkeh111 (on 03 May 2008)
Basically 1m (997k in reality) but well, done for reaching the mark, despite being condemned as a failure
NYANKS (on 03 May 2008)
This probably has a fair bit more sold than a million, but oh well. Truly a great experience, one of the eternal gems on the Playstation 3.
derwarre (on 02 May 2008)
glad to see this hit one million sells...please ninja theory...give us the sequel...

PSN: yungder
Skeeuk (on 01 May 2008)
yes million seller in the bag
Blaiyan (on 01 May 2008)
13th million seller. Nice.
SpartanFX (on 30 April 2008)
this game is awesome,,,it's good to see it hit 1 million units sold
Squall_Leonhart (on 24 April 2008)
Good to see this game reach 1 million! It deserves it. Great game, albeit short!
playnext3 (on 22 April 2008)
million seller next week
Skeeuk (on 22 April 2008)
yes almost, 1 million next week i think, ratchet next
Dark Odin (on 21 April 2008)
million seller next monday!
Blaiyan (on 21 April 2008)
I agree. 2-3 weeks.
Aprisaiden (on 20 April 2008)
3 weeks till Million seller ...

Its still got a chance of beating GTA4 since GTAIV (PS3) will need to sell 1 million week 1 to beat it !
playnext3 (on 17 April 2008)
still weeks before million sellers
playnext3 (on 12 April 2008)
numbers was adjusted...right!!!
FelmanX (on 12 April 2008)
mil seller soon
hunter_alien (on 09 April 2008)
Wow ... million seller :)
Deviation59 (on 08 April 2008)
I really hope this game gets a sequel. I was definitely disappointed when Ninja Theory revealed that the new game they were working on was a new IP not related to Heavenly Sword.
Gangster_Gamer (on 04 April 2008)
Holy shit what happened? Did it seriously sell 100k in 2 weeks or did they adjust the sales? These figures just made my day lol. Now we just need R&C to hit 1 mil and uncharted to hit 2.
crymetyme (on 03 April 2008)
Might as well add another million seller to the list
DeadOnArrival06 (on 03 April 2008)
Wow. Great numbers. I love this game.
Skeeuk (on 02 April 2008)
from start to finish this is a 9/10 game, but after that because of replayability id lower it to 8/10

good game though with stunning visuals, especially the cut scenes which are the best iver ever seen
playnext3 (on 01 April 2008)
definittly million seller by 34 or week
Dark Odin (on 29 March 2008)
Good!!! numbers adjusted! I say more 7 weeks
Blaiyan (on 29 March 2008)
whoa! What an adjustment.
leo-j (on 28 March 2008)
10k a week, needs 8 weeks? Naw I think it will sell 15k and make it to 5 weeks.

Should be a million seller by the end of april,.
Damstr8 (on 28 March 2008)
numbers adjusted? only 80k to go
Dallinor (on 20 March 2008)
160k to go.

That's about 16 weeks = 4 months worth of sales (if it's doing about 10k a week.)
DMeisterJ (on 20 March 2008)
This is a fairly good game.

I've played roughly half of it (Three hours, lol), and I like it. I'd never buy it, but I would play it over a friends house.
Aj_habfan (on 01 March 2008)
Never did buy, but I hope it reaches a million to really justify a sequel and shut some people up.

Nice page design too.
SpartanFX (on 26 February 2008)
this game freaking rocks,,I am loving it
Kamahl (on 25 February 2008)
Besides, you are forgetting that they still have to make this a "greatest hits" game + christmas sales next year...

I didn't want to write 2 posts but theres no edit option.
Kamahl (on 25 February 2008)
^wrong
this will make it, i don't know if its in 5 months or 5 years but it will make it.
DMeisterJ (on 24 February 2008)
Sadly, this game will not be a million seller. But 800-900k is good for a brand new IP.
MontanaHatchet (on 22 February 2008)
This is going to have some trouble getting to a million...
playnext3 (on 21 February 2008)
200k and will get the new ps3 millon seller
Magnific0 (on 21 February 2008)
I finished the game last night. It is indeed short, but that's not the real flaw. I think they could've created some other game modes to increase replay value. I'd love they had made some kind of "Battle Arena Mode" where you could challenge all the bosses and maybe make them selectable in a multiplayer mode, perhaps some kind of tournament up to 16 total players and up to 4 fighters battling each other at once. I would play that stuff day and night! And if that's too complicated they could always make "Mission mode" Ninja Gaiden Black style, more shooting missions with Kai would be awesome. Overall, a good game. 8/10
sergiopepeu2 (on 20 February 2008)
0.80 Go narikooooo
Dark Odin (on 16 February 2008)
I bought yesterday!

FANTASTISC! it deserve more than one million!
NYANKS (on 15 February 2008)
This game was the first next gen game I ever played, and it remains one of the best. Godspeed Heavenly Sword, you deserve AT LEAST a million, much more than many other games so far.
Fel_Br (on 13 February 2008)
I say 5 Months To 1mil.

July million seller
Blaiyan (on 12 February 2008)
you can do it!
Blaiyan (on 05 February 2008)
At almost 10k a week sadly it seems at this rate it'll take 5-6 months to reach 1mil.
coolestguyever (on 04 February 2008)
It'll be a while before this game reaches the million mark, if it even ever does. I can put my sister's life that Need For Speed Pro Street will make it.
Chrizum (on 03 February 2008)
End of may? that's kind of pessimistic, no? I would guess end of march.
Dark Odin (on 01 February 2008)
itīll reach a million, but need for speed, GHIII, ratchet, and othes will reach firts. I think that by the end of May.
JakFrontier (on 01 February 2008)
a wonderful experience to play, for at least 5 hours
Heavenly_King (on 30 January 2008)
Itīs obvious that Vgchartz has stopped tracking the game, what a shame.
Blaiyan (on 30 January 2008)
Is this game even being updated? Not even 10k in two weeks?
FelmanX (on 27 January 2008)
unless there's a significant price drop.
FelmanX (on 27 January 2008)
unless there's a significant price drop.
rukusa (on 24 January 2008)
I agree with Kamahl.
Kamahl (on 24 January 2008)
the game is selling about 10k a week, at this pace, it needs about 24 weeks to make it to 1 million... that's about 5 months and half...
Blaiyan (on 24 January 2008)
Come on, not even 10,000?
Heavenly_King (on 23 January 2008)
@ DMeisterJ

I admit the game short, but it delivers an outstanding experience :D. I really hope this game to be a million seller.
Blaiyan (on 22 January 2008)
Will the numbers for this be updated tomorrow?
sergiopepeu (on 19 January 2008)
This game is short, but is very good. I love the graphics, sounds and the history of Nariko. Go, Nariko, go to 1.000.000,00
DMeisterJ (on 16 January 2008)
@ rukusa

*Jaw dropped*

I can't believe this game has sold 750k. For such a bad, short game, it sold really well. This WILL be a million seller. Mark my words. All the trolls that came in after the first week calling this a bomb can suck it, cuz it's selling very well.
rukusa (on 16 January 2008)
I know B:

God damn it! |:[
Heavenly_King (on 15 January 2008)
@Rukusa
"My jaw will drop to the ground if Heavenly Sword reaches 750.000. Seriously.

Personally I would like to see it happen, but realistically I dont think it will."

Looks like your jaw is on the ground lol
Heavenly_King (on 15 January 2008)
I really hope this game to be able to sell 1million in the next months. Sony should bundle it with other game (motorstorm lol) in the PS3 for US costumers.
outlawauron (on 15 January 2008)
It has finally met my lifetime prediction of 750k which I made back in like March.

GO HS!!
Blaiyan (on 08 January 2008)
I did my part. Just bought this for $40 on sale at amazon.
Blaiyan (on 07 January 2008)
I still think new ps3 purchaser's might pick it up. It only needs to sell 70-80k a month for 4 months. It could reach 1 million by the end of april.
Game Over! (on 05 January 2008)
10 GB of sound data alone. This game really uses the Blu-ray Disc capasity!!!
DMeisterJ (on 04 January 2008)
@ Onimusha

Why are you always trolling the PlayStation 3 games. Always with a negative comment. Shut up troll.
dannyphantom105 (on 04 January 2008)
its seeling around 20 k a week worldwide now, i dont think its gonna make it to 1 million, especially since the holidays are over.

still it has sold enough for them to make a sequel, and if they make it double the length and add some more puzzles that are challenging, i see the next game going way beyond this in reviewers and in sales.
FelmanX (on 03 January 2008)

I was thinking sort of the same thing. Have the numbers even been updated?
Heavenly_King (on 27 December 2007)
It is weird, in the beginning of last week it reached 680,000 copies sold. It has not sold 10k in the last week if you see the graph above. It should be around 720,000 copies.

I was just thinking that and where not all biased. I plan to get the game at some point.
Globox82 (on 22 December 2007)
If this game breaks 1 million, it will be thanks to us Europeans, not because of biased Americans and their rental service.
Blaiyan (on 21 December 2007)
I give it 3-4 months to reach 1 million. I think it's possible.
Zuhyc (on 20 December 2007)
Wow this game might actually break 1 million!

Im about to eat my hat since its closing in on 750.000 8|....
Roy03 (on 20 December 2007)
no he's right, this game is bundled in germany since 2 weeks with Motorstorm, 2nd pad and 60gb for 499€
Kamahl (on 20 December 2007)
where is it bundled????? :S

i think you are wrong.
rukusa (on 19 December 2007)
Oh damn! Now I know why this game sells so well... its fucking bundled! haha... how could I forget that.

If thats the case... it will reach 1 million. Same with Uncharted since thats bundled aswell.
Stats87 (on 19 December 2007)
wow, lemme try that again *ahem*

If they make a Heavenly Sword 2, they should release it in Europe first

haha, there we go

tombi123@

As soon as it reaches 500k then it definitely gets profit.
rukusa (on 14 December 2007)
My jaw will drop to the ground if Heavenly Sword reaches 750.000. Seriously.

Personally I would like to see it happen, but realistically I dont think it will.
yamasan156 (on 12 December 2007)
of course i think so too.
i think this game wiil reach 1 million seles in 2008.
with Uncharted and Ratchet.
the software sales of PS3 increase very slowly.
because ps3 owners find the good game of PS3 exists after.
after enjoyng movies on BD or DVD,probably.
tombi123 (on 11 December 2007)
does 610,000 sales mean that this game made much profit? I think these sales mean there will definetly be a sequel.
aceninja007 (on 09 December 2007)
This is definitely a must have game if you own a PS3. The graphics in this game just blew me away, the cutscenes are incredible, and Nariko looks pretty damn sexy. People complain about the length, but I don't think I would have been happy if it was longer, it still would have left me wanting more. 10/10
Kamahl (on 09 December 2007)
i can see this game selling 1 million by the time its a greatest hits game.
pearljammer (on 06 December 2007)
Thought the game was truly great in every aspect other than length, which resulted in me only renting the game. Glad to see that it is doing well though.
Heavenly_King (on 05 December 2007)
GO Heavenly Sword!!!!
I hope it makes it to 800.000
rukusa (on 05 December 2007)
Holy fuck, It went beyond 500.000 close to 600.- great!
Globox82 (on 04 December 2007)
Underrated game. Strange that it sold more in EU
outlawauron (on 04 December 2007)
Yay, it has most likely broken even by now!
ITBobby (on 03 December 2007)
Good game but to short 7.5/10
Victoresparza2003 (on 30 November 2007)
At almost 500,000 copies this game can be consired a hit, specially since it is a new franchise.
thelulaby (on 30 November 2007)
One of the PS3's best games, pick it up!! It's definitely worth a purchase and not just a rent, it's that good!!

also very good numbers, it'll be a million-seller in the future especially after this holiday season so I guess we'll be seeing a sequel in a year or two
outlawauron (on 26 November 2007)
I wonder how long before the new EU chart numbers get added.
outlawauron (on 24 November 2007)
No way this game sold more in the US than the EU. It was it the top 40 chart for UK for over 6 weeks. Reappearing in the top 10 twice.

Being that the UK is the PS3's worst market, Id think it sell much more in other EU countries.
Branko2166 (on 23 November 2007)
Does anyone know how much it cost to make the game??
I was thinking that if we assume that it sells for $60 us on average and that retailers get 40 and sony 20 then selling 420,000 would net sony 8.4 million dollars because this game is first party.
hunter_alien (on 23 November 2007)
420k allready ... this could easily become a million seller ... it seams that sales arent quit as bad as they would seem :)
Stats87 (on 20 November 2007)
400k worldwide? not bad, hopefully enough to warrant a sequel
Globox (on 17 November 2007)
Finally EU numbers, thx
MontanaHatchet (on 12 November 2007)
Ahh, see?

All that spamming was worth it, the game broke 10,000 hits!

I'd like to thank you all for your efforts. deathbeast, I appreciate all the work that must have went into that alternate account.
Squire (on 04 November 2007)
10/10 agree with Montana, this game is fun
zackblue (on 28 October 2007)
@globox

That is how should I say? Rude.

Any how, I gave it a 10 because it is the 2nd best looking game on the ps3 thus far, and it is worth $59.99. Buy it already!!
Stats87 (on 27 October 2007)
A solid game. I didn't mind it's short length, it was a nice change from the rest of the games that I play that are so long. The Visuals were stunning and the gameplay wasn't as repetitive to me as some other people felt. By mixing up the button combos and order i found myself discovering new attacks and moves.

I thinks HS was more about getting the game down technically and visually, building the foundation. I think HS2 has the potential for greatness since they will be experienced. Allowing for greater variation of gameplay and depth. Really hoping for the sequel. (I think it will sell enough Worldwide) The Critic reviews were still pretty good, around 80/100 average.

Hey TOOL, it was released in EU already back then. So don't open you stupid mouth next time.

So where are EU numbers?
Enlightment (on 20 October 2007)
Amazing graphics...GearsOW and Bioshock can kiss Narito's ass.

Still the game play lacks variations. It's to God of warish to me.
It's to simple. Hell I hope they change HS2 to an RPG,hack&slash and puzzly etc...

I gave it a 9 (even if it is not really worth it)
Dallinor (on 17 October 2007)
Still no EU numbers?
Munkeh (on 12 October 2007)
I love this game, I'm borrowing it off a friend and it is incredible on my 50" HDTV, one of my favourite games ever, as I'm not usually a fan of this type of game, but it's just so fun to play and looks really good
Kamahl (on 10 October 2007)
the game is awesome, can't believe some retards giving low scores.

MontanaHatchet (on 02 October 2007)
I'm starting to wonder if people just form their entire opinions on games from reviewers. This game is amazingly addictive and fun.
mapledragon2007 (on 01 October 2007)
Gameplay was solid, unlocking new combos more fun than many other games, it has an interesting enough storyline to keep you hooked to find out what happens next. The evil king is by the actor who was Golum right? It sure felt like him.

Unfortunately, I was stupid and got stuck on the level when Kai has to shoot a lot of assassins to save the old guy. And I forgot about the Aftertouch, that level cannot be beated without Aftertouch, and that feature alone is amazing on that level.

Onwards to more adventuring.
ratedrsuperstar (on 28 September 2007)
Actually Heavenly Sword is 6 chapters.

While Flying Fox is great, Bohan and Kai are better.
kber81 (on 26 September 2007)
Really, really solid game... nah...It's much more than a solid game. It's an experience. Great visuals, music, gameplay, ... every feature of this game is great. Flying Fox is one of the best characters in all gaming history. Highly recommended. 10/10
gamingdevil (on 25 September 2007)
Actually know-it-all leo-j the game has 6 chapters. I beat it in 5 hours and 23 minutes and i have to confess that if this game was like 10 hours it would be my all time favorite. The graphics are not nearly as good as the CGI but they are truly beautiful. 9/10 from me.
steverhcp02 (on 25 September 2007)
i meant i was merely on chapter 3 and intended to finish the game....which i didnt because Bohan is incredibly frustrating and i needed a break, haha....i havent seen anyone say it was only 3 chapters.
leo-j (on 24 September 2007)
Heavenly sword is 5 chapters!!!

Were is everyone getting the idea its 3 chapters?
steverhcp02 (on 24 September 2007)
This game most definately deserves mid 8's, its a shame. however its fine since this website/forum has a terrible reputation anyways so seeing these types of scores wont turn off potential consumers form this great game, its mor eIGN that upsets me, but they are also quickly becoming a joke as well with their reviews across the board......i digress, HS is great im going to finish it today, im on the last part of Chapter 3, but I intend on going back to get 3 medals too for every level, hurray for days off!!!!
leo-j (on 23 September 2007)
@cerdsmania

PLay the game before speaking.
cerdsmania (on 23 September 2007)
i agree with nightstalker this game is too short also leo even as a sony fanboy myself u go overboard be fair on the game be truthful seriously it does get annoying when ur saying a game should get a 10 when its only like a 7 and lying about certain games stop lying be truthful shizzz
leo-j (on 22 September 2007)
@night stalker

You just said you havent beat the game and think its short(wtf?).

I have the game

Graphics: Videos lie so much, this game looks better than anything Ive ever seen, remember the commercial in CGI it looks almost that good. Its amazing.

Length: If your an idiot that plays video games 24hours straight(like me :P) Then its about 7 hours.

Story: This is amazing just amazing, best story since kingdom hearts.
NightStalker (on 21 September 2007)
Still need to beat it, but it is a pretty good game. The animations, cutscenes, scenery, and voice acting in this game are some of the best I've seen. The gameplay was fun, but could get repetitive. It is also too short, and I feel some things in the story could have flowed better. Overall 8/10 =)
MontanaHatchet (on 20 September 2007)
Already a 1?

Shameful.
Sorrow880 (on 17 September 2007)
@Onimusha12....it really isn't a God of War rip. The fighting system is completely unique (neatest blocking system I've ever, ever seen in a game), the music better, and the graphics better. The story is completely different (not saying better, but good and different). You have 2 main characters to play as and Kai is as unique as it comes!
The only thing that God of War has up on this game is the SIZE of enemy bosses. The gigantic bosses of God of War can give it a more "epic" feel. Other than that, this game is everybit as good as God of War.
MontanaHatchet (on 16 September 2007)
Well, you came off as a troll.
leo-j (on 16 September 2007)
I get along just fine :D

leo-j (on 16 September 2007)

MontanaHatchet (on 16 September 2007)
@Leo-J: If we were allowed to give it ratings, you would go berserk...

@Onimusha12: Seriously, shut up. I bet my account and my soul you've never played this game, so don't talk.

P.S. What do you all think of the yellow text against the dark red backdrop? Frankly, I think it looks too much like McDonalds, but I wanted it to match with the heading text.
leo-j (on 16 September 2007)
Why cant we give it a rating?
MontanaHatchet (on 15 September 2007)
There, beautiful!
MontanaHatchet (on 15 September 2007)
I'm tinkering with some designs. Bear with me.
Sorrow880 (on 14 September 2007)
Best ps3 game I've played yet...9.0/10.0

Amazing graphics, great gameplay, nothing is repetitive, Epic Story, Masterful Music. CG rivals a real movie (makes FF CG look poor). If this is what the ps3 has to look forward, things are definitely looking bright.

Only downside, it only took around 10 hours to defeat this game; however, there is immense replayability (especially if you want a 3 Glyph rank on each level).
Tispower (on 30 July 2007)
If the stupidly short demo is anything to go by, this looks like it will be really good.

Just started playing this game today!
Really enjoying it
fauzman (on 01 January 2013)
@justthatgamer. In belated response to
your comment, yes I mean SSM. I like
both the GOW and HS series and I thought
they would be the best devs to do a
sequel to HS (since the original devs
are busy at the moment) and alternate
this with the GOW series. My point was I
would have preferred this over a prequel
which will likely not get as many sales
as the main series.

I also think you
are a bit confused - you mention HS as
being mediocre but then say that SSM
could make it and potentially see 3M+
sales.
DitchPlaya (on 13 October 2012)
Because it still sold well and Sony
happen to have the rights to the engine
and IP. A quality sequel can be pumped
out in 2 years or less.
JustThatGamer (on 24 September 2012)
@fauzman Who do you mean by 'they'?
Sony Santa Monica? I'm guessing so
otherwise why would you mention God of
War: Ascension. Anyway God of War III is
the most acclaimed and best selling game
in the genre of all time so why would
anyone want a sequel the the mediocre
Heavenly Sword over a new God of War
game? Maybe when SSM finish GoW:A they
could make Heavenly Sword 2 a launch
game for the PS4 as a teaser for what a
next gen God of War game could be like.
I reckon if Sony Santa Monica made
Heavenly Sword 2 it would sell > 3
million.
Kresnik (on 15 September 2012)
Beautiful game. Enjoyable, because they
mix it up between Kai & Nariko, and the
story has really kept my interest.
It's a very simple story, but the
characterisation makes it stand out.
Really impressed with this game, and
saddened to hear that the sequel was
cancelled. Maybe one day, far in the
future...
