    Brutal, irreverent, funny and banking on some rock solid Castle Crashers/Binding of Isaac mechanics that will simply have you playing "one more level" long into the night.

    Fist of Jesus is a funny beat 'em up with some gameplay issue, but with great gory humor.

    There are good games, there are bad games, and there are games that just kind of sit somewhere in the middle, and the latter are perhaps the most forgettable. I don’t regret the time I spent playing Fists of Jesus, but I don’t think it’s an experience that I’m going to remember a few months from now.

    As crazy as it gets, but there are much better beat'em ups out there.

    Mutant Games should have listened to the sermon of the mount for developers. First commandment: do not copy other people's ideas. Second: do not repeat yourself.

    Blood, zombies and blasphemy are a great starting point, but alone are not sufficient to raise Fist of Jesus to the honors of the critics. Too weird to please the mass audience, it's probably dull in the eyes of the fans of the short film that inspired it.

    It works, and it will bring some laughs (especially with friends), but there are better beat ‘em ups out there.

    If you have a free evening and a few bucks, it's a nice game to get :D

    Hilariously awesome zombie game. I normally don't get into zombie games but this one very much attracted my attention. It has fun graphicsHilariously awesome zombie game. I normally don't get into zombie games but this one very much attracted my attention. It has fun graphics and is fun to play. But don't take my word for it. It has a VERY POSITIVE (93%) rating from verified players on Steam. Why only 93% and not even higher? Well if you look at those who gave it a thumbs down, they all have less than an hour of game-time logged in the game. These are people who had a problem and don't even TRY to fix it, which is often just a setting or two to change for their particular system. Or, of course, the panties-in-a-bunch Christian.

    If you're looking for a game which makes Jesus FAR more interesting than the original fable (with zombies, lots of humor, and cartoon gore) then this game is for you.

    Fist of Jesus harkens back to old school beat em ups like TNMT, Battletoads, Double Dragon, Simpsons, Xmen, and newer titles like CastleFist of Jesus harkens back to old school beat em ups like TNMT, Battletoads, Double Dragon, Simpsons, Xmen, and newer titles like Castle Crashers - from the list you can see the one and only problem with this game.

    All of those are multiplayer games.

    Kiss missed a great opportunity here to have Jesus and Judas as simultaneous partners. The game would be so much more fun that way.

    Other than that, the game is great .Every aspect is hilarious. Christianiy is by nomeans a difficult religion to make fun of, and I won't act like all the jokes are original - they aren't - but they regardless are entertaining.

    To the people actually judging their purchase of a 5 dollar game from what a bunch of jaded pricks on Metacritic say - especially the critic reviews who have no idea what they're talking about, pay no heed to the people saying "Other games did it better."

    It's not about doing it better. It's about whether a game is fun or not. People aren't playing beat em ups because one is better than the other. Buy this, even for a single player game, you won't regret it.

    It does get a bit repetative after a while but the game is fun and humorous. It has a lot to unlock, perhaps a bit too much.

Lots of levels and a variety of difficult enemies keep this ones going for the long haul. Just don't be too easily offended. Expand

It won't win game of the year and it won't go down in history as remarkable entry, but it's fun and funny and will entertain you for at least a few hours.

    High marks for creativity and use of colourful artwork, but lacks the gameplay and depth necessary to make it truly great.

    Spoiler: Jesus dies at the end. ;)
