The 2D fighting game Fight of Gods pits deities from various pantheons, including Buddha, Odin, Zeus, and Anubis, against one another in one-on-one brawls for the right to lead the world to enlightenment (or something like that, anyway).  It's not the first such game to take that angle [snip] but it may be the first to so obviously capitalize on the easy and inevitable controversy caused by such an up-front inclusion of Christianity. And it worked, although perhaps not in quite the way the developers intended.

There is a trailer of the game too. Shows beefed up Jesus carrying pieces of the cross as weapon...
