El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is a breath-taking combat title and tells the story of a lone warrior tasked with saving the human race. The game is set in a world in chaos, overseen by a number of angels named the Grigori. Originally the servants of God, these celestial beings once watched over mankind, but soon succumbed to temptation and abandoned Heaven to live amongst the people of Earth. After witnessing the Grigori’s negative influence on humanity and the construction of a blasphemous monument to their success, the Tower of Babel, the Heavenly Council pledged to cleanse the Earth with a great flood, thus eradicating both man and the errant angels.
One voice stood up to these omnipotent beings: a human called Enoch, who was a lowly scribe in Heaven. Thus, a deal was struck wherein if Enoch could capture the renegade angels, Earth would not suffer – and El Shaddai’s stunning 12-stage mission unfolds.
The player is cast as Enoch, who enters its beautifully-realised environment totally unarmed. The world of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is layered in dynamic, ever-changing visuals, creating a truly original aesthetic style that runs through the game. It also reveals an immersive 3D world, where the unarmed Enoch must locate the errant angels and defeat them in combat. Although initially unarmed, Enoch is a master of hand-to-hand combat capable of stringing together incredible combination attacks, and can also arm himself with those weapons dropped by his defeated foes. These can then be incorporated into his attacks, improving his effectiveness further.
All weapons in El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron are crystalline in structure and possessed of supernatural powers capable of defeating the angels. They range from swords to projectiles, but most coveted of all is the Arch – a holy blade that can slice through absolutely anything. The Arch is key to Enoch completing his mission, but the sword must be first liberated from his angelic owner, and then its blade must be purified before he can complete his task.

El Shaddai is awesome, mind blowing and features extremely artistic graphics. The game play is just ok, it's a bit simple and repetitive, but the storyline is interesting enough to keep you engaged.
A great game with a great mix of action & adventure.
This is a very unique, creative game with a great visual style. I'm really enjoying it!
From what I've seen so far El Shaddai is a breath of fresh air for all the gamers that love God Of War/DMC type of games. The art is so beautiful, the soundtrack is amazing and it leaves a good taste in the mouth after playing it. I do recommend for every fan of the genre and for any newcomers to it.
I was very intrigued by the unique graphics and the style of El Shaddai: Ascension Of The Metatron, which reminds me of Ookami. I like the gameplay where it involves both 3D and 2D in both exploration and battles. The story of this game is inspired by the apocryphal Book of Enoch, and follows Enoch, a priest seeking seven fallen angels to prevent a great flood from destroying mankind. He is helped in his quest by Lucifel, a guardian angel in charge of the protection of the world who exists outside of the flow of time, and by four Archangels: Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel.
A fantastic game as of its originality, design levels & storyline. Controller play is kept basic & levels are beautiful graphically. There's a good variety of fighting & driving levels to keep you engrossed. There are a variety of weapons to attain as you progress, which are needed for ever growing stronger enemies & bosses. The final thing is the value from Zavvi, I got this along with Rayman Origins for a great price, including free p&p awesome!
It is definitely a good game, probably the most beautiful one I've ever played. It's really easy to control too. For me, it's a bit too short (6 hours from start to end), but if you are looking for something that isn't too complicated, or for a nice, fresh, new visual experience, then this is definitely it.
El Shaddai (Ascension of the Metatron) is a very good game overall. It tries many styles (both visual and gameplay), and some succeed more than others, but it's very recommended to try, specially with the low price. If you like hack n slash games/action games, or crazy story, or amazing graphics, give it a try!
