  • 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...
  • Pros: Brilliant art direction, strong mechanics, excellent voice acting, hilariously bizarre humor

  • Conclusion: Ich muss zugeben, dass ich nach den ersten Minuten von El Shaddai schon ordentlich irritiert war. Ob nun aufgrund der ungewöhnlichen Gestaltung oder des Anfangs recht undurchschaubar, religiösen Plots.
  • Pros: Künstlerische Augenweide, Viel Abwechslung in Gestaltung und Gameplay, Fordernde Kämpfe…, Spannende Geschichte…, Anspruchsvolle und gut inszenierte Bossfights, Tolle Jump-and-Run Abschnitte, Dezenter aber stimmiger Sound
  • Cons: … denen es an Abwechslung mangelt, … mit vereinzelt verwirrenden Passagen, Übersichtsprobleme durch starre Kamera

  • Pros: Graficamente mozzafiato, Ottimo comparto audio..., Gameplay frizzante e divertente, Una storia che cattura
  • Cons: Telecamera a volte ballerina, ...piccole sbavature delle sincronia labiale
