If you were ever bewitched by Mythology and wondered over Angels and other heavenly things, this is one game to give you some close participation
El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is an action game based on a story developed from the Apocrypha (The Book of Enoch). The gameplay involves seven apostate angels (which are collectively known as Gregory) and the central character Epoch. The group of angels is assigned the task of keeping a vigil on the world. However, the angels get more inclined toward human beings, and in their infatuation, they descend to the Earth renouncing all their duties. This infuriates the Heavenly Council, which then decides to flood the Earth and erode the lives as a punishing gesture. At this point, the priest Epoch protests against the ordeal, urging reconsideration. The Council sends Epoch on a quest to bring back the fallen angels, in lieu of a review.
In his sanctified quest, Enoch is aided by Lucifel (the guardian angel), Raphael, Uriel, Gabriel, and Michael (all Archangels). The gameplay is brilliant and instantly absorbs the player within its surreal grip. There are three primary weapons: Arch (the curved blade that helps stay afloat for a while), Gale (the ring that enables sprint and darts), and Veil (the shielding and punching gloves). As often the weapons are used, their strength gets weakened and thus need to be depurated frequently.
El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron has very impressive graphics and the fights are entertaining. The challenges are not too tough, which hints at the fact that the developer wanted you to enjoy the game without sweating much. If you are looking for a title that has something different in its ploy and play despite being an action game, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron would be worth the try.
