3 years in the careful hands of a development team headed by Sawaki Takeyasu (Devil May Cry) and Masato Kimura (Okami) The game draws players into a storyline inspired by events in the Old Testament's 'Book of Enoch.'
Players take on the role of Enoch and must harness his natural combat skills to master a range of powerful and Heavenly weapons under the guidance of the watchful Archangels. Only then will you be able to deliver the souls of the Fallen Angels and spare the world from a great flood ordered by Heaven.
Using 3D cel-shading techniques, the game embraces Okami style water colour washes of scenery and animation, giving the game a unique and eerie style.
Already scoring a 34/40 (85%) in Japan's Famitsu magazine, user reviews have been less kind (78%).
Alf the helper: Okami achieved 39/40 97%
?! thanks Alf, but not on my shopping list just yet, what did I tell you about interrupting?

A nod to the tiny few of us (? well 18 percent) who dare play as female characters...erm... occasionally, but also it appears a small tribute to the growing number of female gamers.
Bioware, bless their little hearts are planning on placing a Female Shepard on the upcoming game's box art, and you can vote for your favourite character from a selection of 6 (no.4 above).
You must have a Facebook account, and you can check out the six options BioWare has created ........ over.... Here
