Summary: So I bought this on Xbox live for $3. Almost worth it, the story is so far up its own ass. Ancient angelic battles narrated by a Japanese hipster on a cell phone? As mentioned by others the art style is cool, but it's appeal wears out quickly. My biggest problem with the game is a lack of content.
Summary: I decided to give this game a shot because many people have said to give this game a chance. I bought it, and I'll be honest, I'm really disappointed with this game. It's repetitive and I found the combat to be irritating and boring, in fact I stopped playing about an hour into the game because I...
Summary: I will admit that some of the visuals in this game are amazing, and the story is slightly interesting. However, the gameplay is extremely generic, repetitive, and annoying. It's really just a button masher, without any room for creativity or strategy in your playstyle.
Summary: The game was good music and scenery wise other than that it wasn't all that good. Just a button mashing game with very little weapons to choose from. It's a fun game to play at first but just gets repetitive over time and slowly bored me.
It is amazing to look at, but the gameplay is old and stale, with a few pointless new ideas.

Summary: I'm sure many of the people who have played this disagree with me, because I've heard everyone else I know who played El Shaddai loved it, at least on Easy mode. It is a MUST to change it to Easy to get through, unless you are OK with dying many times especially during boss battles.
Summary: I had high hopes for this game when I first started playing. The combat seemed enjoyable and the surreal environments looked great. But about an hour and a half into the game you've seen everything it has to show.
