I loved it, but not everyone will.

Summary: I'm probably in the minority, but I absolutely enjoyed and loved and my time playing this game. Here's why: 1. GRAPHICS. Beautiful. The graphics are like hand-drawn art and cell-shading type graphics that combined to make the beauty of what you see on screen come to life, with moving backgrounds and clear visuals. They took their time making the art style wonderful, and it shows. There's a good contrast of an array of colors that make everything lively.
Summary: I "platinum-ed" this game. A game has to be awesome for me to go into OCD mode and go for the plat. So let me start. The story of Enoch is really good to begin with. It fits a video game arc epically. The visuals are stunning, the art direction is very interesting. It's a fighting game in pastel colors. The sound is atmospheric and helps the immersion. The level design is linear, but the levels have several secret areas.
Summary: Hey, this isn't SUPPOSED to be a game that's going to lead to 20 spin-offs and a feature film. It's an oddball, trippy, easy-to-play, VERY PRETTY game that while I am not compelled to play for hours on end like Call of Duty, is just great for a late night when I want something kind of relaxing, quiet, and thoughtful.
Summary: I just bought this game today (not from Amazon, though. A used copy costs the same here in town as it does on Amazon, so I figured I might as well get it locally.) and, so far, I'm really enjoying it. I've been looking for a good Bible-inspired game where I can play as a Holy warrior and this is definitely the game for me!
Summary: Games are subjective, but this is decent reguardless. Not a perfect 10, however still a must play, if you read that and didn't understand why a flawed game can be good or why something less than a 10 can be a "must play" then don't play this, or anything that isn't shoved down your throat with a season pass.
Summary: The artwork and animation are breathtaking, and the story is fantastic, even for a religious skeptic like me. I highly recommend this game for anyone who likes renditions of biblical stories and action games.
Summary: The only reason I got this game was to check out the graphics, and for this price, it totally worth it! Lot of reviews says the game is boring, the combat is boring ... But after playing few hours, I didn't feel bored and I can say that the environment is so UNIQUE that you really want to discover what is in the next level. This game is really stunning! This is a great product and I hope to see more of this kind of game in the future.
Summary: I didn't say you must love it, but yes you should have this within your gaming references. Truly one of a kind artistic presentation and varied gameplay systems (beat-em-up, 3D platforming, 2D platforming AND driving) are the mark of a very ambitious project. I myself did love it -- apparently being one of the very few who HAPPILY paid full price for this upon release. I pretty much played with a dropped jaw.
Summary: This game is surprisingly good. I didn't like the demo but after several price drops and an amazon gift card I took the chance and picked it up. I'm glad I did. This is a fantastic overall experience. The visual design is gorgeous. The sound is pleasing, the story is enjoyable and the gameplay is fun. Overall I really liked this game and it will forever have a place on my shelf as one of the most unique games ever made.
El Shaddai - A Unique & Odd Journey Worth Your Time

Summary: El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is the first game to be internally developed by Ignition Entertainment, known for their involvement in titles like Muramasa: The Demon Blade and Deadly Premonition, which both garnered cult followings. El Shaddai, like their previous releases, shares a good bit in common with both of them, as it offers a little bit of the weird and original to those gamers who are sick and tired of the norm; however, unlike the other titles, El...
