VGW Review | El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is the sort of game that is ambitious thematically and visually, but far too much effort went into those areas, and the game itself suffers for that. The platforming and combat is only so-so despite its initial cool factor; style is no substitute for substance. There is also an option to play the game with Japanese VO and English subtitles, a definite plus for English speaking fans of Japanese games. Thankfully, the saving grace for this game is that it does not over stay its welcome. It features a short set of eleven levels that can be replayed on higher difficulties. Those that do find the game appealing will have a reason to come back, but I am certain that those reasons are mainly trite justifications. (El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, Ignition Entertainment, PS3, Xbox 360) 3/5
