Review: El Shaddai (GameRabies.com)

GameRabies.com's editor CliffyB3 covers Ignition's artistic third-person action title, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron:

"El Shaddai is one of the most intriguing titles to look at released in recent years. Unfortunately, the striking scenery and slick styles of design that have been so beautifully rendered are more impressive than anything associated with the actual gameplay."

Read our full review for more about the game! (Culture, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, PS3, Xbox 360) 6.7/10

It's such a better game than a 6.7. You don't know what the game will throw at you next. I was on a section last night where I was riding a bike and it felt very Tron-ish

A score of 6.0/10.0 on our scale is given to "good" games that are generally worth renting or playing through for fans of the style of game in question. That's why it got the score that it got - it isn't a "great" game by any means, it's just very interesting to look at and stumbles around with really basic mechanics.

You are one of the few people going around who actually defends a true 1-10 rating scale. Though I think it deserves a 7 or 8, you still get respect for not being a dolt who only dishes out 9s or 2s.

@dgroundwater - I appreciate it. That's what I try to do with my review scale...use all 10 numbers. I think it only makes sense to do it that way, and gives the reviewer a lot more room to work with in finding the appropriate final score.

I like the game but I have one really big problem with it. Everytime you defeat an enemy or destroy an object the game stutters for a second. Incredibly annoying.

If Ignition would patch it I would've enjoyed it alot more.
