Diehard GameFAN: El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron Review

DHGF: As I’ve mentioned before, games based in Judeo/Christian religion generally aren’t very good, despite the theoretically rich subject matter they can draw from. Instead of games featuring reinterpretations of Biblical concepts and Samson slaying enemies with the jawbone of a mule, however, we get poorly conceived and designed casual games, terrible strategy games based off of Left Behind and poor Diablo clones based around Buddy Lembeck turning into a Power Ranger. Presumably, people don’t like the idea of basing video games around living religions, but if Kratos can make multiple great games from Greek and Roman mythology, it doesn’t seem like it’d be too hard to make a good game from the pages of the Bible. Well, Ignition seems to have realized the same thing, sort of, as El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is based on the biblical Book of Enoch, a book of disputed biblical canonicity… so it’s kind of like the Extended Universe in Star Wars, for the non-religious.
