I finished Asura's Wrath over the weekend and must say that I enjoyed it. It's not really long, but I feel it was long enough.

So, it got me to thinking...what games out there and coming out are like Asura's Wrath? I'm thinking Bayonetta, and the new DMC. What other games would you say are like Asura's Wrath?

Bayonetta would be an ok choice, if you trip acid while playing.

Bayonetta is a good choice. Drawing a blank trying to think of others.

Oh and in case you missed it, there is a secret ending in Asura's. It's pretty easy to get. I think you just had to get "S" rank in any 5 levels.

Deadly premonition

Yep, get a S ranking on 5 levels or complete 50 levels meaning have to play through the same levels over and over again.

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron

Splatterhouse

I liked these two. I'm not sure if they're EXACTLY what you're looking for but they might fit the bill.

I don't think there's any game like Asura's Wrath. From what I understand, there's very little gameplay and more QTE's. I wouldn't put Bayonetta or DmC in the same league...but Bayonetta is definitely worth getting.

Yeah, it's different. I'm thinking more of the actual style of the game more then the gameplay.

@ FrumpleOrz

I had thought about picking up El Shaddai a while ago. Can't go wrong with that price.

It's pretty cool. It's worth playing just to look at it. It's very very pretty.

I liked Guitar Hero for a little while.

I'm looking more for something along the story line and art style of Asura's Wrath.

I would definitely recommend picking up El Shaddai. The game plays like a more simplified version of God of War. The story is pretty confusing but the art direction and music in the game was fantastic.

Yeah, I think that's what I liked about it. I had to laugh a couple times just because of the weirdness.

I was SO excited for El Shaddai, and the game was completely nonsensical (in a bad way) and very...dry.

Stylistically, Bayonetta should be right up your alley. Some of those boss fights...especially the end boss...are downright insanity!

I seriously can't wait for Bayonetta 2.

Huh, I can't imagine that reaction to El Shaddai. I think I always just enjoy "weird" more than I should though.

El Shaddai has everything that you could need. It goes from God talking on a cellphone to a Michael Jackson wannabe.

I loved the "weird", and I LOVED the trippy visuals. The combat and the plot were horrible, IMO. Nothing wrong, content-wise, just poorly executed.

I really enjoyed the combat, though I could see how others might not. It did feel a bit random and chaotic in some spots.

No one has mentioned Ninja Blade? It's an action game like it with tons of quick-time events.

Bayonetta.

Earth Defense Force 2017 andEarth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon are both extremely over the top and have you doing ridiculous amounts of destruction and killing.

I played Bayonetta a while back ago and couldn't get into it. I'm going to have to give it another shot.

Heh, it's pretty unique. I don't know if there are many other games quite like Asura's Wrath, honestly. Just play the DLC!

I played the Lost episodes where you fight Akuma and Ryu. I have yet to give the other stuff a try.

I...have trouble imagining this happening on an island full of polar bears.
