In the land of Zenozoik, the city of Halstedom is ruled by a powerful clan, one which Ghat has betrayed by committing a terrible sin. Now, Ghat's brothers and sisters are pursuing him and his companion Deadra through strange and twisted lands, beyond the boundaries of the sane to the ends of the world. What was Ghat's crime and why did he commit it? The bare-knuckled brawl to reach the truth has just begun. A fascinating world of grotesque beauty--Equal parts breathtakingly beautiful and utterly disturbing, prepare to be swallowed up in a surreal fantasy world powered by the Source engine. Explore lush environments and confront bizarre animal-humanoid foes on your mission of discovery and redemption. Visceral first person fighting--Combat is up close, personal, and entirely satisfying. Start with a series of punches, kicks, and grabs, follow up with a knee to the enemy's face, and hit him with a finishing move to send him flying yards away. Learn new moves to mix it up.

i've never seen a game where the melee combat really really works. A lot get close (AoC) is a perfect example, but this looks like it really feels like you are there fighting. great stuff

If the enemies were coming straight at you, couldn't they see that they through a grenade? And at the last part of the video, the elephant creature looked like he wasn't even blocking, just waiting to be hit again. Just wanted to point those out.
I'm hoping Zeno Clash will be tough in the "I can try again and get better at it" kind of way. Also, have a difficulty level that is worthy of an Angry German Kid video on youtube.
I still have high hopes for you all.
