El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron Review | The Controller Online

Scott from The Controller Online writes: "El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron released about five months ago in Japan to critical acclaim. I think I'm going to have to find some of these critics and ask them what it is I'm missing here. El Shaddai scores major points for its art style and subject matter but fails in just about every other aspect. I truly hate having to trash a game that takes a brave new angle in style and story but this game is a mess. Read on to find out why." (El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, PS3, Xbox 360) 4/10

A terribly written review, but I do agree with some of the points. The writer is correct in saying the battle system is "difficult" because of the weapon cleansing. The cleansing doesn't add anything to the actual fight minus pointless damage/death. Take away the story and art style and you're left with a very basic game. There isn't much depth to the battle and zero depth to the platforming. I think Outland is a much better game. Either way. . . Crappy review. The game is much better than a 4/10.

This game has the most mixed opinions I've ever seen.

Doubt it. Duke Nukem and Homefront had more mixed opinions.

You know, this isn't always the case for a lot of things but, usually when the majority agrees that something is good, then it's probably good.

I know El Shaddai is an excellent game, and that this is a pitiful review. Trying to say that this game is below average is a travesty. Then again, I wouldn't put it passed the reviewer to enjoy CoD.

**EDIT** What's the funniest part of this interview is that the reviewers main gripe seems to a supposed lack of "clarity." Seems that, to the reviewer, everything must have a clear and defined purpose or it's no good.

Agreed. You give movie tie in games like ToyStory 3 or Thor a 4 not this game I think the visual style alone gets it at least a five. I really enjoyed the demo.
