El Shaddai preview | GameShard

GameShard writes: "At its most basic level, yes, El Shaddai is a roaming brawler, the likes of which we've seen many times, albeit it rarely done with mechanics these solid or with anywhere near as much ingenuity. When you add in the truly incredible artistic style and the melodic, yet strangely ominous soundtrack, the game is elevated to another level entirely. Whether it can sustain the sense of wonder over the course of its entire adventure remains to be seen"

That was the weirdest demo I ever played.

It was equivocal to watching fish masturbating to pictures of deformed clowns being stabbed by chimpanzees.

Yeah, played the demo. Felt like I was on acid or something, lol.

Liked the art style (although the gfx were technically poor) and the combat a little too, shame the platforming was so abysmal. I'm invested in the character of Enoch after reading about him in the bible and in the historical document "the book of Enoch" so I came to this with an open mind but if things don't improve alot before release then this will be a rental at best.

How was the platforming "abysmal", honestly? Hell, even the director of the game said that the platforming was more reminiscent of ye goode olde days since he was tired of platformers that were automated as hell (you know, the kind where you only press X and the character makes the jump perfectly- of those where actually falling is harder than completing the section).

About the graphics, they only needed anti-aliasing. But, then again, it's on a console.

Im gonna get this, Sure it'll probably have a few faults but what game doesn't? It looks and sounds interesting, Also "original" is something we don't get often.
