Gaming Moment #10: Heavenly Sword: Kai’s Death
Was any game ever more critically reviewed than Heavenly Sword? Outside of Lair, Heavenly Sword was supposed to be the savior of the PlayStation 3. The new age God of War with a female lead and a similar battle system. Despite the lack of acclaim that the game did deserve, it still delivered a memorable character that is one of my all time favorites — Kai. Kai is the type of character you probably wouldn’t want to meet in real life. She enjoyed dancing over dead bodies and making people pay. Not too solid of a combination if your goal in life is to be sane and on a narrow path, however, Kai’s arrows and resilience made her one of Sony’s finer characters. The below gameplay segment is one of my favorite to date.
