Know what you are getting into

  • Summary: Granted, I only put in about an hour on this game before quitting. However, from other reviews online it was apparent to me that the gameplay was not going to change. It was interesting having a paper/rock/scissors battle format but it just appeared to be button mashing and it got old quickly. So if your looking to buy this, keep in mind the biggest experience will be the storyline and graphics.

Great Art Style

Biomonkey, Amazon

  • Summary: This game was a lot of fun in terms of playing something different. Since the gaming market is crowded with shooters, this was a welcome change. The art and style in this game is beautiful. It reminded me of the game Okami. It doesn't have its down falls, even though it tells a interesting story. The combat gets repeatative and hard at times, since you have to kill enemies with certain weapons. If you want a good story and great art/style, then pick this up.

An abstract platformer

Pavel Bass "Jim", Amazon
3 January 2013
  • Summary: I'm a fan of many different kinds of games, and usually go out of the way to find lesser known but acclaimed titles (I loved Enslaved for the 360). I saw enough positive reviews about this game to pick it up. I wasn't initially disappointed, but the story for this game is so abstract and confusing that I was lost interest- and fast. The battles were fun, but there were many points in the game that were scripted (Wait, I was supposed to lose?

Tediously Repetitive

  • Summary: The gameplay here is tediously boring and repetitive. I mean, how many different holes and how many types of gaps are you going to need to jump across before you find it boring. And to make matters worse, if you do miss the jump, you have to start back from the start of that area. Usually, this is not too far back from where you were, but I recall fairly early in the game that after failing the jump a few times, I was taken back to a point previous to a boss battle!

Art trip, but not much more

Andreas, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • Summary: Let me say that the graphics are really interesting and appealing. but they will lose their appeal quickly, the gameplay just gets more and more repetitive with no sign of any depth in the future. There are 3 weapons, thats it. You do not level up either, so you do not really learn new skills or new ways to use those weapons. The gameplay depth is what hurts this game the most. The story is very out there...

Meant to be looked at, not played.

Albert Thompson "Sharkface", Amazon

  • Summary: This game is too pretentious. Honestly, I went into El Shaddai wanting so much, and maybe that's the main problem. But when reviews say that this is the epitome of an amazing Japanese game, I would assume anybody should be disappointed after being promised that and then presented this game. It's not that the game is bad- it just isn't good. At it's core, El Shaddai is a button masher through and through.

  • Summary: ce jeu est graphiquement hallucinant (dans les deux sens du terme) les thèmes musicaux d une grande originalité et le scénario est intéressant.mais le potentiel ludique est inexistant.c est de la plateforme archiclassique qui dans son déroulement date des consoles 32bits.le déroulement souffre d une absence totale de liberté.les combats sont quant à eux insipides(si o

Naja , immerhin nett anzusehen

Christian S., Amazon

  • Summary: Also ich bin ja großer Fan von extravaganz in Spielen. Einheitsbrei ist ein faux pas der nicht in meine Box kommt. El Shaddai ist ein klassischer Beat em up (Buttonmasher). In einem Wunderschönen Setting macht man irgendwas um irgendwas zu erreichen für irgendjemanden, keine Ahnung so eine konfuse Handlung findet man selten aber wenn man sich nur gut genug bemüht kann man diese einfach ignorieren.

Nicht schlecht, jedoch auch nicht Toll !

Mir, Amazon
25 February 2012
  • Summary: Was soll ich sagen, diesen Titel mit Okami, Bayonetta oder Devil May Cry zu vergleichen, wäre nicht richtig, denn dieser Titel kommt nicht an die "Großen" heran. Zwar besitzt El Shaddai schöne Grafik, diese ist oft recht Psychodelich und der Soundtrack ist auch recht stimmungvoll aber das wars auch schon. Seltsamm anmutende Story (Persönliches empfinden) und vorallem eher langweilige Spielmechanik.

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron

Zoiler, minhembio.com
16 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Slutsats : El Shaddai är troligtvis (vilket säkert framgått med all önskvärd tydlighet) ett av de sjukaste spelen jag någonsin spelat – det känns som en obehaglig mardröm i vissa stunder. Men trots det är det absolut fungerande, men det är mycket som står i vägen för att det ska bli riktigt roligt. Framförallt skulle de fokuserat på 2D enbart, istället för att dryga ut det med tråkig actionfighting som tyvärr är lite för ytlig och träig för min smak.
