El Shaddai Review | GamEvolution

Every now and then a than a game comes along which you can’t really slot into a category or genre. El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron (what a mouthful) is one of those games and it pulls it off quite well, this won’t be to every ones taste however. The game itself is always trying new things and you need to keep your wits about you just to understand what’s going on. For example as soon as the start the game you’re thrown into a fight, you lose and are encouraged to bash at the controller buttons to revive yourself. This has the effect of turning back time and you end up back at the title screen. You’re left wondering if that was quite right, but after hitting start you carry on with the game. Then there are the times where a character in the game speaks directly to you and not the character you’re controlling. There’s a few odd instances like this, it can be quite strange, but kudos to the developer for trying new things. (El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, PS3, Xbox 360) 3/5
