Asura's Wrath (Xbox 360)

 

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 is a pointless, bizarre mockery of a game that will leave you scratching your head from the very first cutscene to the final fight. The game kicks off with a rather confusing cutscene which makes an unconvincing attempt at explaining why...

DBZ fans and dyspeptic adolescent boys should presumably enjoy it

Short ; Nothing for a gamer to really do, other than watch long, boring, convoluted and uninterestingly nonsensical cutscenes ; Sorry, mythology and sci-fi just don’t mix, unless you happen to be the original Star Wars trilogy ; There is no way you...

Speaking of anime, Asura’s Wrath is very reminiscent of one long, very bad anime. The story is broken up into several episodes, each of which comes complete with opening credits and a preview of the next episode. The closest parallel that comes to mind...

When Capcom revealed their new IP Asura's Wrath back at the 2010 Tokyo Game Show, everyone assumed they were jumping on the action-adventure bandwagon. Most people, myself included, labeled the game as a God of War-rip-off set in Asian mythology. It...

Asura’s Wrath is an incredible experience, but not exactly a great game. You spend as much, if not more, time watching cut-scenes as you do actually controlling Asura. There is a lot of promise to this concept, but I am not sure it’s implementation...

Asura’s Wrath

 

Mixing science fiction and mythology doesn't always work, but anime has made it into a genre of its own. The new Capcom game Asura's Wrath combines the mythology of Hindu demigods with spaceships and earth devouring monsters. It's also has a key...

Great art style + Kinetic gameplay + Unique design

Quick time events pretty excessive - Style isn't going to appeal to everyone

That melodrama is pretty entraining though, peppering the game with huge fights punctuated by long passages of exposition. If you’ve watched Bleach or Dragon Ball, you get the idea of the kind of action I am talking about. If that doesn’t sound very...

I found Asura’s Wrath very difficult to put into a specific genre of game. This is because the heavily anime influenced title feels more like an interactive movie than a game most of the time. When you are actually playing, you’re either mashing the...

Asura’s Wrath (Xbox 360) Review

 

Capcom's newest IP is finally available. See how it plays inside.

Story telling is good ; Gameplay never gets stale due to the short bursts you get ; Game does a nice job of wrapping up the story of Asura

While it may be different from most games, Asura’s Wrath shows that games can be more about storytelling than the game, or at least more of a balance than mainly gameplay with a few cut scenes here and there. Given the shortness of the game, it’s at...

Asura's Wrath Review

 

Asura's wrath is a hard game to classify. At the core it is a love letter to the tropes and conventions of Japanese animation. Asura's Wrath was released during the relatively slow February period. The game doesn't really fit into the action/adventure...

At the end of the day is Asura's Wrath worth your time? The presentation style in Wrath suits the storyline and characters almost perfectly. If you haven't been exposed to Japanese Anime or have no interest in learning some of the tropes/conventions of...

Asura's Wrath Review

 

Asura is one of eight legendary demigod generals who battle in the atmosphere as they strive to protect the planet of Gaea from a race of monsters known as the Ghoma. After leading the defense force to victory with spiritual assistance from his...

Artistic visual design that tells an epic tale of revenge

Weak characters and repetitive play

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...
