Not religious, but great game.

Summary: I'm not religious, but I thought that this game was absolutely beautiful. It had many colors and cool effects. Surprisingly combat is more than just button mashing, you have to think what weapons to use. The story is kind of confusing but if you play through it a couple times it'll become understandable.
Summary: This is a nice game. Beautiful and kinda weird in the best way possible. It does get slightly repetitive, but the interesting levels and religious themes make up for the lack luster fighting mechanics.
Summary: The game had an an interesting and drastically varied visual style, more than what I've ever seen in a game before. The music was also good. The battle system was focused on a rock-paper-scissor dynamic: the trick being that you can only carry one weapon at a time, so if you are in a battle with 3 enemies all carrying a different weapon, the order in which you defeat them becomes quite important.
Summary: This game captures an art style and disjointed form of play that is loved by many. Not the best game to get started on gaming with, but certainly has its merit. The continuity can be a bit confusing at times, but overall, quite a fun game.

Summary: El shaddai in my opinion was a game that was beaten down in the score area because of its platforming and/or combat. i honestly found the game not to be worth a five out of ten (ign and other reviews) because that was a very harsh score considering the game wasnt even that bad. Cons the platforming is one of the worst ive experienced in gaming. the character u r using isnt meant for platforming.
Summary: This game is inspired by the Biblical character Enoch, and in the game he is sent to Earth to bring back the souls of 7 fallen angels to remove their influence so that there is not another great flood. Despite its inspiration, the game merely uses the Bible (and other ancient religious texts) as source material for the fictional (and often psychedelic) world; it's definitely not preachy, and some very religious/conservative folk may even find some of the...
Summary: The basic storyline for El Shaddai is you play as Enoch, a priest sent by heaven to seek out seven fallen angels who have abandoned God and fled to Earth to capture them before God floods the Earth. The story can be very confusing throughout the game and I wasn't sure what was going on for a lot of the game but it's the music and the visuals that make this game shine.
Summary: I'll just say it straight out...The actual gameplay is not great. This is mostly due to the lack of variation. That being said there are a lot of other reasons to play this game. Visually it is unlike anything you have played and the story is unique. I asked for it as a gift and I'm glad I did. Just don't pay full price for it.
Summary: With a complete lack of action games this year, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is a deep breath of fresh air. The graphics are amazing, as I'm sure plenty of the other reviews can tell you. The music is superb, the story is decent enough, all it really does is move the game along, which for me personally, is all a story in a videogame has to do, so this is a matter of personal taste.
