  • 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...

  • 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.

Review: El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron

12 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Our very own Lewis posed a question to you all a few weeks ago: “ How important is the styling of a game to you, and would you ever purchase something purely based on how it looks?” It’s certainly a pertinent question, as top quality graphics are expected these days, so developers seem to turning to...
  • Pros: For the most part it looks stunning., Enjoyable 2D platforming sections., A good, deep combat system., A stellar first half., Some really good ideas.
  • Cons: 3D platform sections marred by poor camera., Limited enemy types., Fighting the same bosses over and over., The game becomes sadly predictable., Second half falls a bit flat.
