Features
El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is a third-person, single player action-adventure game in which players must subdue rogue angels, loose on the Earth in order to uphold God's divine plan and prevent the destruction of humanity. Loosely based on the apocryphal Judaic works concerning the pre-flood biblical patriarch Enoch and his role in some traditions as Metatron -- the angelic intermediary between God and his people -- El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron features a compelling storyline; a distinct visual experience; combat, platforming and exploration gameplay; unique weapons and feedback systems; and controls that are designed to suit all levels of players.

Features

Expect the unexpected. El Shaddai defies gaming convention by mixing a wide variety of game play styles including 2D side-scrolling action and 3D exploration.

Lose yourself in the compelling storyline based on the ancient apocryphal tome, The Book of Enoch, but told with a modern flare and uniquely artistic approach.

Innovative Zero HUD Player Feedback System' utilizes dynamic environment, character, and audio clues to keep the player engaged without cluttering the screen with extraneous indicators and information.

The three-button control system is simple to use yet surprisingly deep, delivering exhilarating, flowing action that allows both casual and hardcore players to enjoy the game at their own pace.

Fluid environments with constantly dynamic elements create a flowing living world filled with a wide variety of unusual landscapes unlike anything previously seen in gaming. This is enhanced by high production value cinematic cut scenes to an inspirational full orchestral music score.

All weapons are forged from crystalline heavenly knowledge beyond the grasp of humanity and possess supernatural powers. Among them is the Arch, a holy blade with the hidden power to slice through anything.

5 out of 5 eggsSuch a Great Game ... for $10!?

Pros: Gameplay, Story, Graphics, Control Mechanics .... Everything!

Cons: Not enough time in the work week to finish the game.

Other Thoughts: I first heard of this game in college from an old collegue as he was totally enthusiastic about its Judeo-Christian themed story. Me being somewhat of a bible reader decided to give it a go and well I will say its a very abstract take on the Old Testament with various gameplay styles, depth of game and puzzles rolled into 1 perfect package.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the best games of this gen

Pros: - Some of the most beautiful visuals in gaming history, created by the character artist behind Okami and Devil May Cry

- Perfectly balanced combat in the style of Bayonetta, and Devil May Cry with more tactical elements

- Incredible soundtrack published by Square-Enix

- Both English and Japanese voiceovers (featuring Jason "Lucius Malfoy" Isaacs as Lucifel in the English voice track)

- Switches between 3D action and fantastic 2D platforming throughout the game

- Awesome price!

Cons: - Storyline is a bit confusing and spotty

- English voices don't match up with characters' lips 100% of the time during cutscenes
