A great game when new, even more so at the cheaper price

Andrew Mulligan "Joker", Amazon

  • Summary: When Angels fall and claim godhood, the real God tends to be none too pleased. Story The story of El Shaddai is (loosely) based off of a religious text 'The Book of Enoch' and follows Enoch, a heavenly scribe chosen by God, to find and return 7 fallen angels to heaven, the game explains this over a series of small cutscenes and novel-esque pieces.

  • Summary: flat out, this game has alot going for it, but the target audience wasnt what it was expected. that being said, this game is fun and inventive with few elements of religious belief.

Really fun and unique game, though not perfect.

  • Summary: Having finished this a while ago here is my personal opinion. The main draw for this game is definitely the presentational aspects (visuals, music, effects), as well as its story. Hands down this has some of THE BEST visuals I have ever seen in any game. That's speaking aesthetically of course; in terms of graphical power this is actually not too impressive, but the art design is amazing and definitely inspired.

Beautiful, Interesting...Controls Could Use Some Work

  • Summary: You are Enoch, a man who was taken to heaven before death to be a scribe. When some fallen angels decide to wreak havoc on Earth, Enoch must go and face them and bring them back to judgement. The game has a beautiful design and graphics. The story is very interesting (drags at times, but still interesting). You basically go around fighting off various creatures with one of three weapons. The enemies get harder, but you don't get stronger.

Didn't expect much, but was surprised.

  • Summary: I bought this as a christmas gift for someone that's a Final Fantasy fan but no longer had a Playstation 2 and was dismayed at FF13. I bought this since it was on one site's list of games similar to final fantasy. It arrived late and I ended up getting the person something else. I decided to put it in a few days after christmas and didn't expect much from it, since Japanese RPGs aren't my thing. I played for a while and it was pretty good.

The Most Unique Game and Art Style Ever!

  • 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.

Bargain Bin Review "El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron"

rhubarb doom, Amazon
22 November 2011
  • Summary: If the idea of cavorting before a hipster guardian angel who communicates with God on a cell phone and doing battle with minions of a dreadlocked Michael Jackson-alike who vogues in front of the screen whilst you're engaged in combat isn't an immediate turnoff, then El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron might just be weird enough for you. El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron takes its inspiration from the Apocryphal book of Enoch.
