Staff member Sean shares his impression on the emo for El Shaddai Ascension of the Metatron.
cant wait for this the art style is so great
The art style has attracted me as well and the combat is what really kept me in because its all about timing of button presses. One of the few day one purchases for me this year.
I hated the demo... the game is really beautiful, but I just couldn't get myself to like the gameplay, and the 3D "platforming" parts between the fights just didn't work, the art made you completely lose the perception of depth.
Artwise it's beautiful but technically it's not that impressive. I didn't lke the gameplay either. It was too simplistic and just felt dated.
Pretty much the same as our staff :D
@GamerEuphoria - I'm currently playing through Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, which might have had effect on my impression of El Shaddai. The combat and controls in Castlevania is on another level.
Oddly the staff memeber who did this video really enjoyed Castlevania, almost went on his GOTY if it wasnt for Bayonetta
@GamerEuphoria - Sounds like a great guy/girl, with impeccable taste in games. ;-) I'll keep an extra eye on your site from now on.
:D Thanks very much lol
