It all begins with a snap, like an illusion.

How many games can be considered art? If El Shaddai was a film, it would slot into the Studio Ghibli catalogue nicely. If it was an album, it would pump track after track of mind-blowing dub-step right into your eardrums. If it was a painting, it would...

There's an argument that likes to make the rounds every so often in video game magazines and internet discussions; are video games art? This debate has raged on and on almost since the inception of the medium and will always have people at each other's...

El Shaddai: Ascension Of The Metatron Playtest – A Leap Of Faith

 

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron's opening credits where Enoch side-scrolls through a hundred years of time sets the tone for the game. The highlight of Ignition Japan's first and sadly final game is its striking scenes.

While the ideas come off as disjointed, El Shaddai is flowing with them shifting players from platforming to driving a motorcycle… in the past and then to a disco battle. It’s odd, but that’s also what makes El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron...

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron combines gorgeous artistic design with enticing combat to create a memorable adventure.

Incredible, abstract visual design ; Streamlined combat is smooth and challenging ; Three unique and satisfying weapons ; Varied soundtrack deftly enhances the experience ; Playing on harder difficulties reveals impressive combat depth

Camera makes navigating 3D platforms unnecessarily tricky ; Combat on normal difficulty gets predictable

With each successful strike, you visibly damage your maniacal foes. El Shaddai is played without a HUD (you do unlock an option to use one once you finish the game), though the expertly designed visuals ensure you're aware of all the information you...

El Shaddai is not Spanish for "the Shaddai." In fact, Latin America may be one of the only regions not represented by El Shaddai in some way. The game features British and American voice actors (including at least one Harry Potter alumnus), is directed...

El Shaddai is a game that will please any fan of creative visual storytelling, at least on the first play-through. The big question is, will you find the game compelling enough to play again and again? At first, I thought my answer would be a...

To say that it's something of a rarity to play a game based on an ancient Jewish religious work would be a massive understatement. In fact, games directly inspired by any religion are few and far between, with the most common reference being the...

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron PS3 Review

 

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is completely and utter bonkers. Now that I've got that off my chest, let me elaborate on why that is and why that fact alone makes it such a great game.

Interesting story ; Gameplay is a lot of fun ; Art style is beautiful ; Great sound, both on voice acting and ambiant sounds

Story can, and will confuse people ; Death System removes some of the challenge ; No major innovations to the hack and slash and platforming genres

El Shaddai: Ascension Of The Metatron (2011)

 

Boasting one of the most preposterous titles in gaming history, El Shaddai: Ascension Of The Metatron is driven by a high-concept plot based on the ancient Jewish religious text 'The Book Of Enoch', brought screaming to life by stylish characters and...
