FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Small Exposure: God Hand
Posted on Wednesday, February 27 2008 @ 06:26:37 Eastern

Well, I thought that in the lack of an ability to comment on a game outside of a full-blown GR review here, I thought I'd write a blog about it instead.

I will call this feature Small Exposure, primarily as every other name I could think about for this feature was already taken.

Today, whilst heading to the University of Auckland, I made a side-stop at JB Hi-Fi, a local music, DVD and gaming outlet. There, I noticed a PS2 stall with God Hand playable. Now, I had heard good things about this game from members of the GR community *cough*GGT*cough*, so I thought I'd give it a bit of a play.

Later that day, after Uni was over, I found myself rushing towards United Video in Henderson, with the urge to play a rented copy of God Hand.

I had played it for no longer than 10 minutes, and I want to play it again. That's how good it is. I'm not sure what got me more, was it the memorable music, the intriguing battle system, or the fact that I kicked a guy in the groin, which made his face turn blue? I don't know. But, I do know that I'll be looking out for a copy of it whereever it may be.
