D+PAD: El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron Review

D+PAD Magazine:

To say that it’s something of a rarity to play a game based on an ancient Jewish religious work would be a massive understatement. In fact, games directly inspired by any religion are few and far between, with the most common reference being the crucifixes that are wielded by videogame vampire hunters of various guises. It’s refreshing then to stumble across a game like El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron that draws inspiration from The Book of Enoch. Wisely, developer Ignition Tokyo has not opted to deliver a digitised sermon and have instead produced a tightly engineered, visually stunning and often surreal action adventure which, you could say, brings a very literal interpretation of the term ‘Bible-basher’. (El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, PS3, Xbox 360) 3.5/5
