This is a game in only the loosest sense of the word, but is an intriguing proposition nonetheless, especially for those with a penchant for action based manga series. Asura’s Wrath is an original, engaging and occasionally ridiculous game and as a result is certainly a novel experience, though whether it’s an experience that most gamers will be happy paying top dollar for is another matter.
Asura's Wrath est une véritable expérience avant d'être un beat'em all. De prime abord, on pourrait se dire qu'un titre constitué à 85% de cinématiques risque d'être ennuyeux, et beaucoup pourraient s'en détourner pour cette raison. Ils auraient tort. Le studio CyberConnect2 nous offre un soft atypique porté par une mise en scène extraordinaire qui met en avant la rage divine d'Asura. Du coup, la redondance de son gameplay passe rapidement en arrière-plan, et on profite d'une histoire envoûtante et d'un design à couper le souffle. Dommage que la première partie ne soit pas aussi prenante que le reste.
Asura’s Wrath ist in vieler Hinsicht einzigartig und überrascht mit ausgefallenen Ideen. Auf der anderen Seite kommen die spielerischen Aspekte viel zu kurz: Über weite Strecken wirken die pompösen Schlachten wie interaktive Filme, bei denen es nur auf das richtige Timing oder Knopfgehämmer ankommt. Das ist durchaus unterhaltsam, doch tendiert der spielerische Anspruch gegen null. Auch beim Blick auf das simple Kampfsystem wird deutlich, dass hier mehr das Erlebnis als sie situative Spannung im Vordergrund steht.

Although Asura’s Wrath is a delight to play, there are some elements which hurt the overall experience. For starters, there are simply too many cut-scenes and quick time events. The game almost played like an interactive movie. It made for predictable and somewhat mundane experience at times. The game seemed to lack direction and after you have played the game through to its completion there is little reason to come back to play it again. Despite the negatives as its core Asura’s Wrath was an enjoyable game. So if you are a fan of Anime and Manga, then you will likely appreciate this game; otherwise, you may just want to avoid this one.
