Customer Review of the Week: Asura's Wrath


One thing is for sure, Asura is one angry dude, But who can blame him? His wife killed and his daughter kidnapped and put forward to a life of suffering. I know I'd be pissed.

Asura is one of the 8 Guardian Generals who are demi gods, they are trying to protect the realm of Shinkoku, from the threat of the Gohma, Things quickly change though as Asura is Framed with the death of the Emperor and the 8 Generals become the 7 Deities, who use Asura's daughter, Mithra to harvest her power to make them much, much stronger.

The game has different segments of gameplay, one moment you are flying through the air shooting Gohma and spaceships out of the sky and the next you are having much smaller scale battles on the floor with enemies. One thing is for sure though; The action in this game never lets up. Everything that is happening on the screen is amazing, and there is so much of it. The mass of different colours and explosions going off, and the art style of the game fit perfectly, there is a strange mix for this game, I got a Sci Fi and Buddist mix to it, and somehow they have nailed it. Anybody who is into any kind of anime will love this game.

The combat is quite simple, and there are very, very large parts of the game which require you to input button commands, but this helps to build the story, and give us a epic boss fights. One thing that i did notice with Asura's Wrath is that enemy bosses do not have health meters, instead you have to build Asura's rage meter until you are prompted to push "RT" and Asura's flips his lid.
If you do not enjoy games where there are lots and lots of cutscenes, then unfortunately Asura's wrath is not for you. I spent many hours of my time watching rather than playing this game, But with a story this deep I did not mind one bit.

One thing that I never really pick up on during my time with games is the music, Asura's Wrath's soundtrack is INCREDIBLE. The music fits in beautifully with what is happening on screen, and never feels out of place. One of my favourite things about this game is that they have actually tried to make it feel like a TV show, With story boards throughout the game giving more of an insight into the story.

Personally I would have liked it if the Gameplay segments were a bit longer, but overall this game is an incredible story, with some great characters, and I would highly recommend everybody to at least give this a try as my words probably do not do service to how great this game truly is.

Words by LFC Bywater.

Pros

Cons
