GameShark - El Shaddai: Ascension Of The Metatron Review

GameShark - El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is the kind of game that many critics and game players like to pat themselves on the back for liking, celebrating their discerning taste in games while lamenting that titles such as it languish while Call of Duty and Halo sell into the billions. With its unique visuals and a story inspired the Book of Enoch, a piece of esoteric Jewish scripture, the game certainly stands apart from the AAA crowd and it’s easy to understand why those looking for new concepts in gaming—myself included—would be drawn to it. Unfortunately, doe-eyed reverence for the game’s style tends to gloss over some ugly warts rooted deep in gameplay that are likely a good argument not to let art directors design games. In this case, the project was headed up by Takeyasu Sakewai, the character designer that produced some of the beloved figures from Okami and Devil May Cry. (El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, PS3, Xbox 360) D+/A+

Soon as I read Anime jibber jabber, that made this review null and void to me.
