Review by Matt on 15th June, 2012
 
5 stars "Beat the crap out of a dude the size of a planet :p"

Asura's Wrath is fun to play it's like your taking part in an anime, Asura is even voiced by Liam O'Brien who voices Gaara in the Naruto anime.

You play as asura through most of the game but do get to play as yasha, asura's rival/brot­her-in-law (seeing parts of the conflict through another characters eyes).

There also download content on the psn network for lost episodes where you fight ryu & akuma from street fighter (voices in japanese for the street fighter eps) and some extra missions that happen after the story of the game.

 
 
Review by Jeremy on 1st January, 2014
 
4 stars "Epic arena brawler."

The story will be familiar to most; a demigod betrayed, and overcome by his thirst for revenge. But the unfolding narrative of a lost man seeking to reunite his family becomes surprisingly real and personal.
The game plays as vignettes; you get a cut scene, some exposition, then a combat arena. You are not always in control here. Though the combat mechanics are solid, you will almost always be building a power bar to unleash a QTE finisher. However, the physicality of the fight, the beautiful art-style and scope of the action (a fight may start in a crater and end with a sword that can pierce planets) mean you'll likely never care.
This is a ride worth taking.

1 stars "Interactive Manga Comic"

This is not a game it's a glorified Manga comic. Overly-simplistic QTE's with extremely monotonus beat 'em up sections. The game requires no skill what-so-ever and gets very boring very quickly. 1 star for an interesting concept

Description

Inspired by Asian mythology and fused with science fiction, Asura's Wrath is an Action game in which players take on the role of the demigod Asura, and take on his quest for justice and revenge against the divine powers that cast him from heaven.

The game utilizes a “Beat-em Up” gameplay mechanic and an episodic narrative storyline rooted in Asian mythology and sci-fi traditions. Additional features include: a range of unique enemies, planetary sized bosses, a second playable character and a devastating attack system.

“…part rollercoaster, part anime blockbuster and part stress-ball” Eurogamer 8/10

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…

Gameplay

With unprecedented levels of dynamism, drama and interaction, Asura's Wrath delivers a fresh take on the action gaming genre. Combining intense combat with a seamless player-controlled narrative, Asura's Wrath introduces a brand new style of action game. Players will control Asura in a blend of action and cinematic sequences taking an active role in the gameplay direction.

Asura's Wrath finds Asura facing off against numerous distinct enemies, including planetary sized bosses. Through a mix of range attacks and visceral close quarter action players will fill Asura's ‘Burst Gauge,’ unleashing the full force of his rage and delivering devastating attacks on those who betrayed him. Asura's story of revenge is told through episodic gameplay, taking the player on a journey of highs and lows and adopting a structure that is similar to a TV drama series.

Key Game Features

  • Innovative Setting and Story – Fusing Asian mythology with sci-fi, Asura's Wrath's u­niverse is truly unique
  • New Type of Action Game – Asura's Wrath seamlessly blends action with narrative, adopting an episodic nature more akin to a TV drama series
  • Relentless Action – Asura's Wrath keeps placing gamers in tight situations and says ‘now get out of that’
  • Second Playable Character – Play as Asura's rival Yasha and adopt a different playing style, traveling at lightning fast speed across environments
  • Rage Never Dies – Build up Asura's Burst Gauge to unleash devastating attacks on those who betrayed him 12,000 years ago
  • What the…? – A range of unique enemies and planetary sized bosses will continually challenge players' expectations
  • Collaboration with CyberConnect2 – Asura's Wrath continues Capcom's strategy of partnering with the best developers to produce titles to compliment its own internal projects

REVIEWS

“CyberConnect2's he­avenly dust-up is energetic, exhilarating and often completely overwhelming…part rollercoaster, part anime blockbuster and part stress-ball. The end result may stretch the definition of a video game, perhaps, but it's also extremely hard to get angry about.” 8/10 – Eurogamer

“Asura's Wrath is not like any game you will ever have played before. This is, self-evidently, an excellent thing – and a rare one, if you've been playing games for a long time. It is an attempt at a new kind of interactive entertainment, one much closer to living, breathing anime than traditional action game. It delivers a story that's up there with the best gaming has to offer in terms of visual spectacle, but in doing so, it stays very close to the conventions of film, and rather shies away from actually being a game…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 full-price release.” 7.5/10 – IGN
