Story

Long ago in the realm of Shinkoku, eight deities known as "The Eight Guardian Generals" battled to protect civilization from a destructive force known only as Gohma. Asura was one of the most prominent of this group. During the victory celebration, the Emperor of Shinkoku was assassinated in a sinister plot and the blame was placed on Asura. In the middle of the commotion, Asura's wife was also murdered and his daughter kidnapped. With even his brother-in-law and rival Yasha turning against him, Asura was banished from Shinkoku. Awoken by a voice after 12,000 years, Asura vows revenge on all those who have betrayed him.

Product Description

With unprecedented levels of dynamism, drama and interaction, Asura's Wrath will deliver a fresh take on the action gaming genre. Once a revered deity, Asura was betrayed by his fellow gods and stripped of all his powers. Consumed by anger at the injustice he has suffered and swearing vengeance, Asura discovers he can use this fury to his advantage and turn it against his enemies. Cue relentless action as Asura finds himself facing off against numerous unique enemies, including planetary sized bosses, unleashing devastating and visceral attacks. Asura's Wrath loses the traditional distinction between gameplay and cutscenes through seamless player controlled narrative. Simply put, even in cinematic sequences the player can control Asura, directly affecting the gameplay, making Asura's Wrath a truly unique experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Asura is a breath of fresh air! February 21, 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is unlike anything I've ever played before... it certainly isn't perfect, but it's unique, visually splendid, and probably the most daring effort at a big budget title that this generation of consoles has seen. It had me laughing throughout (it's extremely funny... not always by design, I suspect, but that's beside the point). Oh, and did I mention that it's UNIQUE?

If you're looking for something different, this is it. It's not like "God of War", it's not like "Bayonetta", and it's not like "MGS". It's just... bizarre, weird, and downright quirky. In a good way, in my humble opinion. However...

DO NOT buy this game if you can't stand QTE (Quick Time Events... the timed button presses made popular by "Resident Evil 4" and "God of War"). QTE... there's a LOT of it in this game... undoubtedly a world record, as a matter of fact!

Also... DO NOT buy this game if you can't stand anime... we just might be looking at another world record here, boys!

Finally, DO NOT buy this game if you're not willing to accept the fact that there is a relatively small amount of hands-on gameplay.

The story is entertaining (and hilarious in its absurdity, as I mentioned earlier), and I really didn't mind all the cut scenes and non-playing portions, because the presentation of this game is so outstanding. I'm not a huge fan of either anime or QTE, but I was able to overlook their enormous presence because this game is just so unique. Developers in the gaming industry need to be more innovative, more daring, and less fearful of failure. This willingness to tread uncharted territory is what's required for the industry to grow and evolve. "Asura's Wrath" is a perfect example of a developer (and the publisher...

3.0 out of 5 stars A fun anime that you play, BUT... September 4, 2013
By Requiem
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you ever wanted to play a video game where you felt like you were in an epic anime, like Bleach or Dragon Ball Z, this is the game for you. It's pretty epic, although a lot of that comes from mashing the right button when it appears on the screen. But it's still awesome and fun.

The problem I have with this game is I reached the end of my first playthrough, and was told there was a second, hidden ending, which unlocked once you met a certain requirement. Just by playing through the game, I had unlocked the second ending, which required fighting the last boss again, which I did immediately. I won't spoil what happened next, but the hidden ending is pretty much 2-3 minutes of additional cutscenes, followed by an ad, saying something like, "Purchase our DLC to unlock the TRUE ENDING."

If you can't include the "real ending" of your own game on the disk, choosing to rather sell the buyer the ending for an additional 10 dollars (which is half the price of the game, factory sealed), that is a REAL problem.

For that reason, I can't recommend this game, because Capcom holds the ending hostage, demanding an additional 10 dollars for a 20 dollar game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Being Different is a good thing February 21, 2012
By Rondy
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Long time gamers, remember the time a few games tried to be different, Wolfenstein was made, and spawned the whole FPS genre?

Yes, being different is a good thing. And I appreciate what the makers of Asura's Wrath is trying to do.

A simple summary for the game: The setting is old world gods mixed with Sci-Fi. The story is about a demigod cast away who vows to make things right his way. Gameplay is nothing like what we are used to. It is an action adventure with shooting elements and a large amount of violent melee. Asura does not have a health bar, but the player aims to fill the rage bar so as to perform a finishing move to proceed. A lot of QTE or PDE (player dependent events) is required.

It is not what everyone is used to. I hear comparisons with God of War a lot but besides the rage, nothing else is similar. The player does not have health bars and magic points. That is why most players get angry and make a bad review or comment. And players who do not like QTE would not like this at all.

The game is simply for fun. It has a lot of anime style cutscenes in between. It is humorous.

The only regret I have is that there is not enough gameplay and it is over too quickly in 6 - 8 hours.

Discounting people who hate asian mythology, anime, QTE and playing something different, this game is made for the small percentage of gamers who would find this game fun. The majority who are used to major mainstream titles will find this very unappealing. So try the demo before buying. Chances are you may not like the game, because honestly, you are probably part of the majority.

Nevertheless, this game is original, well-made and entertaining. Hence the 5 stars.

Some may argue that Asura's Wrath is not really a "game," and instead just an interactive movie with a series of quicktime events. Whichever side of the fence you're on, you cannot deny that Asura's Wrath is a crazy, over the top, and magnificent experience that will surpass any expectations you had and leave you in awe.

The game is divided into "episodes," in an interesting way that really does feel like you're watching an anime, complete with the pause where the commercial break would be, and a fully narrated preview for the next episode. Each episode takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, so you can take a break between each one to absorb the material, or just power through like a marathon or a traditional game.

The gameplay has you running around an area and fighting enemies with a relatively simple combo system, and utilizing your special heavy attack at the right moment to build up your "Burst" gauge to advance the game and play the next cutscene. The real beauty of Asura's Wrath is once you "burst" something crazy is ALWAYS going to happen. If you've played the demo, getting crushed by a boss the size of the earth and getting speared through with a sword as long as the diameter of the planet are just tips of the iceberg. The button-prompts are also really good at emphasizing the actions and getting you into the story, in a way that doesn't make you roll your eyes and sigh heavily.

The only thing holding me back from giving Asura's Wrath 5 stars is the DLC. Hiding the true ending, which you absolutely HAVE to buy, behind DLC is a really scumbag move on Capcom's part. To make customers pay an additional $7 for content that should've been on the disc is a shady move that casts all publishers in a bad light.
