Product Details:

Long ago, when the seed of mankind was first taking root, God laid down his plans for the human race. He appointed the Grigori, the most human of all angels in heaven, to watch over them from the celestial realm. The Grigori, known to some as the "The Watchers", dutifully continued their vigilance through the ages. Over time, they became fascinated by the lives humans led, with the uninhibited freedom and passions. Subtle at first, the fascination soon led to feeling of longing, desire and lust. Until one fateful day, the Grigori turned away from God and descended to Earth. When Heaven's highest order, the Council of Elders, discovered the Grigori's betrayal, they were furious. Their anger only grew stronger when they learned that the Fallen Angels had taken in daughters of men, deviating mankind from God's great plan. To set matters right, the Council decided to send a terrible flood to wipe out the entire human race. However, there was one man who objected to the Council's decision. His name was Enoch, a scribe whose righteousness moved God to bring him to Heaven while still living mortal. The Council heard Enoch's pleas and agreed to spare mankind on the condition that Enoch capture the fallen angels and bring them back to Heaven to be imprisoned. To prevent the impending flood, Enoch returned to Earth on a mission to escort the Fallen Angels back to Heaven. Upon his arrival he confronted Azazel, one of the seven who fell. However, Azazel refused to return to Heaven and went into hiding along with the others, warning Enoch not to follow. And so, Enoch's long journey begins...

  • 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from If u like jumping pretty much the whole game is jumping going up and across a tower story line doesnt make too much sense the graphics are ok the color is alil crazy with a slice of cell shading its extremely repetitive game and the fact that u can respawn pretty much any time makes the challenge not worth the effort the idea was right i suppose but seems like it was a game that hd a short deadline to complete

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun in a weird way For one, I know that this is not a popular game at all. None of my friends have ever heard of this game. The storyline is a little confusing and has to do with religious concepts which I do not like in a game. The graphics are weird but are good. The game has a better start than end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful!!! I plan to pick this game up today, I have played the demo on Xbox live and i was sold. I love the graphics and the game play, Some people on here gave this game bad reviews because they don't understand the true nature of this game. But I for one after experiencing this game first hand and hearing some of the other reviews will be purchasing this game for keeps. Don't let the bad reviews fool you go try it for your self if you have Xbox live, its in the demo section.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A mesmerizing mix of animation, color and sound... Ive been playing games since 1979 (showing my age) and as games evolved to what we have today, I was completely shocked when I bought El Shaddai. I was immensely blown away by the morphing and ever changing colorful animation of the stages. Ive never seen such intense imagery capture me like this game has. The story line was fresh, unique and surreal. The action was indeed action which was wild and engaging to satisfy a multitude of gamers at any level. Of course the music was as real as any orchestra that melded with the creative backdrops to drown you into a world that was fresh and timeless... purchase this game...!!! The companies need to create alternatives as this title to free up the first person genre. I still love first person, but this title will always stand alone in a class by itself... Heres to, I hope, possibly more games that will break the genres in the near future... Spizzarri, Chicago IL.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A refreshingly different type of game Keeping in mind this game is based on dead sea scrolls book of enoch; its a refreshing change of pace from the gritty shooters/actiongames of late with the same generic shaved headed hero with a scowl (looking at you gears of war, infamous, force unleashed, etc etc :P). and honestly it does a great job of story telling, with scenes of lucifel and enoch in game engine, rendered cutscenes etc etc. keeping in mind its based on a JEWISH text, not a christian text, and its not preachy, i found the story to be fascinating myself. but they way it is all portyayed the graphics are absolutly mind blowing and prove truly games can be art. the colors chosen explode off your screen, if you have 1080p you'll be in visual heaven. the gameplay is easy to pick up but the battle system does have nuiances that are necessary to truly have fun (button mashing will get you only so far). the music is sweeping and perfectly suited and very memorable .but another thing to keep in mind is if your looking for a dmc/gow clone look elsewhere this game is much more than just a hack&slash. but i truly have to say, if we can make games about greek, roman & Japanese religious themes for games, why not jewish and christian? definatly give this a shot if your looking for an action game that is delightly different.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A religious sheep in a (stylish) wolf's clothing Reading all of the rave reviews about this game, I decided to pick it up and give it a shot. That was my first mistake. El Shaddai is a mix of beautiful scenery, well orchestrated music, a fairly generic assortment of special moves and slashes and a fairly epic set of villains. But those issues were not the problem I have with El shaddai. MY problem is with the incredibly deep religious overtones. You would think this game was sanctioned by the church itself (seriously, check it out if you don't believe me). After playing for about three hours, I just couldn't continue facing the onset of religious nonsense this game was continually spewing. It's like playing "bible games" circa 2011. If you can get past this, you have yourself a fairly linear game with a rather bland storyline and a set of enemies that you will get no satisfaction from killing. If you're still curious, Give El Shaddai a shot. But don't say I didn't warn you...Just remember, Magazine and internet reviews of video games can sometimes be deceiving.
