Asura's Wrath (PlayStation 3)

 

Asura's Wrath might seem like a game firmly engaged in the throes of an identity crisis. It balances delicately on the line that separates interactive movie from game in an attempt to buck the negative connotations generally associated with the former...

Asura’s Wrath Review

 

Asura's Wrath is an interesting game. It was hard for me to review it because I was conflicted. While I love a good story in a video game, this one never really sucked me in. Asura's Wrath...

Good narrative ; Simplistic combat ; Awesome soundtrack

Lack of emotion ; Stale gameplay ; Might not appeal to all, with the majority of game being story driven

When I played the demo for Asura’s Wrath, I instantly fell in love with the game. The demo showcased two incredible boss fights with awesome action along with music that got me pumped up to whoop some ass. Needless to say, I was stoked to get my hands...

Asura’s Wrath Playtest: Interactive Anime May Incite Rage

 

I'm torn about Asura's Wrath. CyberConnect2′s action “game” is mostly cutscenes with quick time events. Did you play any of the boss fights from Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm? Most of the game is like that.

I like how outrageous Asura’s Wrath can be at times. What other game has an armless hero headbutt a giant mech to death and a hot springs event with custom controls just to splash water? However, most of the playable parts have Asura fighting in a...

Asura's Wrath is a whirlwind of mindless repetition. It demands your attention due to the prominence of QTEs, boasts a surprisingly decent story, and features unequivocally the most insane, over-the-top, outlandish boss fights you've seen in a long...

Asura's Wrath Review

 

Asura's Wrath isn't much of a game, but its over-the-top, anime-style story makes it easier to overlook its shortcomings.

Worthwhile story

Uninspired use of quick time events ; Repetitive and lackluster combat system

Truth be told, that method of design makes traversing the entirety of Asura's entertaining story relatively painless, but if there were ever an argument to be made against uniform pricing, Asura's Wrath is it. It's a game because its price demands that...

Some experiments don't turn out that well.

An obvious question might be “Why not release this as episodic digital content?” With some tweaking, that might be a perfect approach, but Asura’s Wrath takes a few episodes to get up to speed. This plays like a tale designed to be experienced in one...

Developer CyberConnect2's anime tribute is delivered through the wrong medium.

Asura's Wrath Review

 

Hot on the heels of last week's official release of Dear Esther, Capcom has given us its own version of a videogame striving to be quite unlike anything you've seen before. Asura's Wrath is part anime series, part comic, part brawler and part shooter;...

Asura's Wrath

 

Many people will tell you that Asura's Wrath is unlike anything you've seen before, which is interesting because its components can all be compared to things we've seen for years. Elements of Dragon's Lair, Heavy Rain, God of War and even Space...

Asura's Wrath would have been a superb anime or an excellent videogame. However, it couldn't decide what it wanted to be and instead served up tiny slivers of both, pulled together in a fashion so clumsy that you can see the stitching from miles away....

Asura's Wrath Review

 

Asura's Wrath is one of the maddest and most spectacular action games ever made - but is spectacle alone enough to justify a purchase?

I can’t help but love Asura’s Wrath for having the bravery to try something completely new. It sets out to be a new kind of interactive animation, and it succeeds completely at that. But a game this light on actual content is difficult to justify as a...
