Don’t miss our Reviews of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron: “As a creator god with a passion for light, shapes and color, Sawaki Takeyasu, accompanied by his team, has made his most suggestive game to date, a work very focused on the visual that exudes its own style on all sides, although it does not remember at all – except that it is an action title – Devil May Cry or Okami, as much as we would like. El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron does not develop any new playable mechanics, it does not risk doing something different in the face of control and confrontations that the character of Enoch will find; however, it is a product that seeks its own identity, risking the most for the visual ”.
