El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron (PS3)

ccgr.org
26 January 2014
  • Excerpt: El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is the freshman directorial effort from the character designer from Devil May Cry and Okami, Takeyasu Sawaki. Drawing inspiration from the pseudepigraphal Book of Enoch, Sawaki presents players with a tight 3D action/adventure platformer that owes much to both of his previous efforts in both its visual style and mechanics.
  • Pros: Brilliant art direction, strong mechanics, excellent voice acting, hilariously bizarre humor
  • Cons: Portentious, pointless philosophizing that has no bearing on the gameplay

  • Summary: El Shaddai is not Spanish for "the Shaddai." In fact, Latin America may be one of the only regions not represented by El Shaddai in some way. The game features British and American voice actors (including at least one Harry Potter alumnus), is directed by a fine artist from Japan, and is produced by a team of people from all three of those countries. The cross-cultural appeal doesn't stop there.

  • 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. It all comes back to the question I posed at the start of this review. How many games can be considered art? On a mechanical level, this title is simple and repetitive.

  • Excerpt: El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is a weird game that pays homage to a simpler time of gaming, however the universe of this title features a rich and diverse sensory experience that looks quite stunning and stylised on the PS3. The story revolves around Enoch, the protagonist of this game who has been given the task of capturing the renegade angels called the Grigori... seven to be precise.

  • 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. After it got the hard part right it's disappointing to see El Shaddai stumble through sections that should have been easy. Still, El Shaddai always seems eager to impress.
