Tell me how many games are out there where you play as an angel trying to save the humankind
from corruption and sin? Messiah is one of those games that has that premise. Developed by Shimy Entertainment, who also developed the platform game Earthworm Jim
, it offers a comedic tone, a futuristic setting
and some interesting twists in the story. In the game, you play as Bob, a cherub who's sent unwillingly by God to clean up Earth from corruption and sin
. And that's pretty much the synopsys that we get in the intro movie. There are some twists as you progress, but I won't spoil it for you. The gameplay is fun, mainly to the fact that you can possess human beings, while in later level, you have to rely on stealth, because you're defenseless in your cherub form. Other than that, it's a third person shooter
. The graphics are decent and the sound effect quite good, however the voice acting seems sometimes cheesy. Overall, Messiah is a good third person shooter, with a comedic futuristic setting and a gameplay that will keep you entertained for some time.
