So I just played the Demo and I gotta say I really liked the combat, the enemies where hard at first I died like 2 times before getting to the unkillable boss but at the same time they don't give you any inputs for the combos it seems everything comes natural for what you can do and that dosn't tell me if the combat is just simplified or not deep enough, then you go on to do some platforming wich was ok I didn't like it at first the second time playing the demo was better (finally getting that those clouds where platforms too) and when you're ready to face that giant monster it just ends! so much tease, also the game looks like nothing I've ever seen it's pretty cool, I'm half sold on it can anyone recommend?

The combat in the game is all about timing your attacks. Over the course of the game you'll start to figure out different combos you can pull off. There's 3 weapons and a special power you'll get later on. The visuals are nice and the boss fights are fun to fight. The bad thing about the game is that it can get repetitive. The combat even though its fun there's not much depth, and the story can be confusing at first. Overall for me I love playing El shaddai. I've been trying to platinum the game sense I bought it. I had alot of fun with the game its about 8 hours long, and once you beat it you can unlock different costumes and a scoreboard. There's also this special costume you get if you find these bones in these secret areas.

Too repetitive. Don't do it! Quit while you're ahead, the demo is pretty much as good as it gets.
