So I recently bought God Hand, and it has recently become a nightly fixture. It's safe to say that this is becoming one of my favorite action games of all time- only a rung or so down from DMC3. And it seems like many of the people who actually spent time with the game feel the same way.

Critics, however, bombed this brawler like there was no tomorrow. It's disappointing, because even publications I typically agree with gave the game abysmal scores (for a Clover game, at least). When I first turned the game on, I was unimpressed. After 5 minutes, I really wanted to turn it off. I didn't, and I'm glad that I pressed on. The fact that your arsenal of moves is entirely customizeable is awesome. Then you have all sorts of special attacks. A HUGE number of extra moves and special attacks can be bought from the store, so the number of possible attack sequences is nearly infinite. Depending on what difficulty you play on, you will probably find yourself frequently switching up your movelist to maximize damage or change-up the juggling properties of your combos to match the attributes of the enemies you face. Good stuff...

Critics complained that the number of enemy types is low (it's really not THAT low) and that the game felt repetitive. Except that one thing (the same thing that saved Chaos Legion) saves God Hand from ever feeling repetitive: it's difficult. Anybody who elects to play the game on easy and breeze through may feel slighted- the joy of this game come from defeating the difficult enemies the game throws at the player on normal and hard difficulties. The game is so focused on throwing challenges at the player that it even has a bizarre leveling system. The better you play, the higher your level goes.

This game, in a day and age where graphics and gameplay do not go hand in hand, God Hand has done so and it is one of the most ROCKINEST GAMES you'll ever play. When I said it's so oldskool it hurts, I mean it. Remember NES games and such where bad guys are repititve? Color changed by pixel and basically the same thing over... and over... and over again but for some strange reason you play on because of an x-factor of gameplay you can't quite put your mind and finger to it? God Hand has it and it is a game that is SO rewarding to a game player.

It may not be for everyone and this game will probably end up like some kind of Cult Classic like NES's River City Ransom or Roller Games-- but hands down this game is a wild experience to be had. I've played some good games with awesome boss fights, my most memorable being Legend of Zelda's Windwaker on GC with Ganon at the final fight with the waterfall arena set up... but each and every boss fight in God Hand goes to an epic scale of play. You aren't just playing the hero. YOU ARE THE HERO when you play this game and for hardcore enthusiasts of this genre, it will NOT disappoint.

You wanna develop a hardskin and call yourself a true gamer? Buy this game. You wanna prove that you are ONE WITH THE UNIVERSE and that your gaming chi has developed to the epitimy of zen? BUY THIS GAME!

This is a fun game. That said, this game can be extremely frustrating at times with the difficulty. However, once you've gotten used to the control style and start finding and buying new techniques it gets easier. This game is definitely fun, but be prepared to pull some of your own hair out at times.

The character design and writing was hilarious. Each character has their own unique personalities. You are guaranteed to laugh as much as you cry when playing through this game.

I'd recommend this game to anybody who appreciates an old-school beat-em-up fighter as well as the unique Japanese sense of humor.

Many would pinpoint Okami as Clover's final gem, and while it was a great game, I'd have to disagree; God Hand is the real Clover classic.

A humorous spin on classic beat-em-ups like Final Fight and Streets of Rage, God Hand takes the concept to an extreme degree, making your character able of pulling off super-human feats like sending enemies flying into the sky with a single kick or unleashing lightning-fast flurries of punches. However, this works in reverse as well - your enemies are tough enough to take dozens of punches and keep on fighting, and when sufficiently angered they can drop you with just a few hits. They'll gang up on you (sometimes outnumbering you five-to-one or even more) and use cheap tricks to lure you in for a huge attack that drains half your health bar. Thus, using your special "god reels" and "god hand" invincibility at the proper time is an integral part of the game's strategy, as is mastery of the dodge mechanic - there are very few "cheap shots" in the game that cannot be dodged. Careful conservation of health powerups and weapons for the toughest enemies couldn't hurt either.

So, yes, God Hand is a very difficult game. It will frustrate you. You'll probably die dozens of times before you get used to it and continue to die dozens more times after you do. But, once you master the dodge, perfect your fighting technique and conquer the very last boss and everything in between, you'll definitely feel you've accomplished something great. It's a shame Clover won't be around to make a sequel.
