El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron (PS3)
28 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.
Excerpt: El Shaddai might lurk under your radar, but ever since publisher Ignition officially unveiled the game last year, its whimsical and imaginative art style has turned heads. The time has finally come for El Shaddai to descend into North America. Is there a truly great game here, or does its beauty merely run skin deep? El Shaddai presents a loose and fanciful interpretation of the Book of Enoch, an ancient religious work.
