God Hand is a game about punching, and only punching. It’s what the hand of god does, apparently: give people a good, hard slug in the breadbasket. It is a game about punching that has some very, very adamant fans who like to proclaim, loudly, the inadequacy of anyone who does not share their ardor for the game. Me, I don’t personally take any enjoyment from brawlers or Devil May Cry-esque games, so there’s nothing in God Hand for me besides a distant appreciation of its satirical flavor. Fortunately, I didn’t write this article, so it does a much better job of selling the game’s merits than I ever could. Hooray for delegation!
