El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron

  • Conclusion: Despite it's downfalls, El Shaddai is a memorable experience from start to finish. It offers a quirkiness and sense of style that is not only unique, it's surprisingly refreshing. Enoch's adventure is bizarre and often hard to keep up with, but this is definitely a game that should be experienced.

  • Conclusion: El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is a work of surprising confidence. Combat that favors leveling up the player's, not that avatar's, skill set is worthy of admiration, as is a wildly imaginative, frenzied art department that never allows their beautiful work to overstay its welcome.
