Could've Lasted a Bit Longer...
I had very high expectations for this game! The trailers and demo convinced me to believe this game was going to be worth every penny, but I've developed mixed feelings about it now. Gameplay is fun, I really love the quick-time features, but the developers didn't put much effort into the diversity of Asura's fighting style: same combo over and over, with maybe about two different special kill events (boring). But my greatest disappointment was how short the overall game was. Only 18 missions, each lasting about 4-6 mins. (being generous). I've completed the game and just about earned all the trophies within a little less than two days, and just about ready to sell it. I don't believe it to be a bad game, but it definitely did not reach the potential it was showing in their trailers. From the looks of things, there may be a sequel - I just hope they add a little more effort then. But, it is definitely rent worthy. That's all the time you need to play it, enjoy it, while saving you $60.
While this game is fun in short bursts, the lack of any gameplay development, aside from a few different health bars and a rather boring special Asura form unlock at the end, this game doesn't lend itself to long game sessions. However, the story is magnificent, and in true anime form, very over the top. It was fun to watch Asura tear apart demigod after demigod, but not very fun to play. Gameplay amounts to mashing a button or two until you can use a finishing move, at which point the game goes into a quicktime mode where you watch as Asura beats someone and you press triangle when it tells you to. While the story is good, the visuals almost stunning, and the music is gorgeous, there is no replay value here that I have found. And the worst part is that the final chapter that ends the story is DLC, which means unless you're willing to shell out extra cash to see the finale, you're left with a cliffhanger. I would only suggest this to hardcore anime fans, or people who like the beatem up style.
An epic action title developed by CyberConnect2 and Capcom. A dream come true. From the playable demo, I can certainly say that this game will be quite an adventure. It's like mixing a fight scene from Dragonball with a battle from God of War and then some. Seeing Bruce Lee ride atop a mountain lion on top of a killer whale's back while battling Genghis Khan whom is riding a South China tiger is about what watching the action in this game feels like. Quick-time prompts occur frequently within the cut-scenes and that really keeps you in the game outside of the direct game-play, which is just as crazy and action-packed as the cut-scenes themselves. A lot of people nowadays are dissing the amount of games that use quick-time events, but I can assure you that this is one title that does it well. It really pulls you into the action.
Anime? Or Game?
Asuras Wrath is maby one of my current favorites as of now, Story is basically of betrayal between asura one of the 8 or 7 demigods sounds familiar? Well the game sets it self from the average fight beatem up type of game because it really focuses on its cutscenes rather than gameplay, And in between the cutscenes there are button commands similar many other games but you are timed on it the better you do the better the score at the end of each episode, Asuras wrath contains up to 18 episodes including a secret Alternate ending which you have to unlock, levels are broken into episodes really like an anime where it has credits and a to be continued at the end of each episode and a trailer to the next one, It leaves you wanting more. And each episode is different from the other youll be fighting in space on the moon,Flying around destroying ships with your blast or defeating a really fat guy (one of the deitys) who trys to crush you with one of his fingers. Overall Asuras wrath is refreshing to play its not like anything ihave played and it was well worth it the story and cutscenes really made up for the lack of gameplay since your combos are really just the O button. I recommend this to anyone who wants e=to experience something different or who loves anime cause ive enjoyed it. F.Skyy outtt
Bit rough around the edges, but absolutely insane
Judging from the demo that is.
The controls seem to share the same problem God of War does in that the character seems not to move fast enough at points, though when Asura actually gets to where he needs to, the action is this blend between Devil May Cry stylish and God of War brutality, combined with the insanity I'd expect in a parody of such games like No More Heroes.
The demo consists only of two boss fights, but shows off enough to tell you how things work: "Health meters" for bosses are actually more like a "Special gauge" which you fill by beating on the boss in question. When its filled, a simple tap of a button will bring up some surprisingly good QTEs that actually work (if you're jumping, you'll be mashing X; if you're going to be using your arms, you'll be playing around with the analog sticks, etc), meaning you actually feel like you're the one playing rather than testing reflexes to see if you can continue on. The sheer insanity that unfolds as Asura goes berserk has to be seen to be believed, as words cannot do it justice.
The only thing I'm wary of is how long the game will end up being and how the rest of the game plays out, but otherwise the game looks to continue in the proud tradition of the over-the-top hack-and-slash genre, as well as perhaps proving that you don't need an M rating to wear the same title as Samuel L. Jackson's wallet.
Please Rent this!!
Now this game is good for anyone that is looking a decent action game. If you like anime and asian mythology then this game is for you. The story is actually pretty good, but the length is disappointing and I beat it in around 5 hours. The gameplay ok, but it is very repetitive and clunky. I like quick-time events, but most of your experience is wrapped around quick-time events, which also gets really repetitive. There is nothing to do after beating the game, so dont waste your hard earn money on this; rent it to see what im talking about.. Final Score 5.5/10.
god of war without the adventure
Pros: over the top action, touching story, told in a beautiful way, nice choice of music, original
cons: no replay value, too short, repetitive in long sessions of play
This is worth a rent just based on gameplay, but if you enjoy the story you should buy it!
One thing you have to remember when you start playing Asura's Wrath. It is NOT a action-adventure game. It is a action and beat em up. So that means no free roaming and no puzzles involved. The only thing you are going to figure/solve out is how to defeat your opponents in the environment that you have been put in.
What I love about this game the most is not the story itself (even though I do like the story very much), but how it is told. It is told in some sort of epic anime fashion with astounding music backing it up.
So it took me about 2 hours and 30 mintues to beat the game (this is gameplay time only). Not including the cinematic within the game and to 100 percent it in trophies. I'm basing this on my records in completing the stages. Overall it would be 15 hours max and that is being generous. This is the biggest set back to the game and what it suffers from the most. After you beat it of course there is nothing else left to do. Unless you want to play each stage over and over. It would have helped if they added some sort of online mode. A lot of people are saying it is repetitive and I agree, but it only begins to feel that way if you play it in long sessions.
Capcom tries to break that up by including several shooting stages throughout the game and letting you play as Yasha somewhere down the line. Who has a more technical and speed approach to his fighting styles. Asura is just a straight up power hungry brawler. The shooting part of this game reminded me of the ones in Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, but I wish they added a little extra something to it.
This game is definitely finger numbing and you might need a new controller after your done. It is literally a original over the top action game on roids and by the looks of the true ending there might be a sequel. I'm looking forward to that =)
