So I downloaded the El Shaddai: Rise of the Metatron demo from the Marketplace since i was bored and wanted something fun to try out. I never kept tabs on this game prior to the demo, but I did see occasional pictures of it and it looked original. I had no idea. I have to say, this game was surprisingly good. The combat is a little stiff, but the gameplay is interesting and the art direction is amazing. One critic described the art correctly: If Lady GaGa made a videogame, this would be it.
If you're in the need for something original and fun, try out El Shaddai. It's surprisingly good. If anyone tries it out, let me know what you thought.
