...and like in the second paragraph they straight up call it "God Hand 2."

I am now more excited for this game than is reasonable. Seriously considering importing it, since it's localized in english already and everything.

I'm thinking about importing it, but it's too expensive for me. Still, God Hand comparisons are a very good sign.

sega is seriously so dumb to push this back outside of japan (atleast they have reconsidered publishing it at all)

The rant at the end that essentially berated readers and labelled them hypocrites because they're not importing was really fucking stupid.

Free Gameplay (this technically isn't youtube spam, is it?)

I still find it crazy that it was pushed back so far. The localization is done! Even the demo has full English text and voice in it.

I went to play-asia after reading the review and put it into the cart, but I just couldn't buy a game that I'm sure will eventually come out here for £66.

Watched a gameplay vid. It's excellent and definitely a Godhand game in almost every aspect.

I just heard of this for the first time. I really like the look of the character designs on the wiki page. I'll be looking out for it early next year, I guess.

@Dixego: you can post youtube videos without worry as long is it's not the OP.

@Dixego: Generally youtube spam only applies to the original post of a thread. If you're posting something on topic in a thread (such as you did here) then you're golden.

That dude put in work! He kicked so much ass in such brutal ways. Now I'm definitely thinking about checking this game out. I want to do that dash and dropkick some fools.

If Gene isn't in this game IT AIN'T NO GOD HAND 2.

Shame I have an Xbox 360 so I can't import it. I SO WOULD.

That's weird. I thought that you liked God Hand/Beat 'em ups.

How did they review the game months before it is being released?

@Napalm: But it's a cool game, at least! Though i really love these kinds of games, even when the majority of people say they're mediocre. Have you played MadWorld?

The characters look stupid and the fighting system doesn't resemble anything I'd actually want out of a beat'em up.

Is it common for Eurogamer to review a game that did come out in Europe?
