You may not be the kind of person who should play Asura's Wrath at all, but if you are, you're in for one hell of a weird ride.

En fin de compte Asura's Wrath, c'est la garantie d'une aventure épique à souhait, puissante et gigantesque, mais surtout pas maline et subtile. Si vous voulez poser votre cerveau pendant quelques heures, en prendre plein les yeux, les oreilles, les doigts et redevenir un homme préhistorique le temps d'une session de jeu, vous savez ce qu'il vous reste à faire. Et n'ayez pas peur. Les retours aux sources, ça a du bon.

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.

Gameplay (Benelux) (71 out of 100)

Niet voor iedereen, maar als je op zoek bent naar een knettergek buitenbeentje en meer wilt kijken dan zelf spelen, is Asura's Wrath een prima achtbaanritje vol adrenaline en nog een aardig verhaal ook.

Här finns effekter och explosioner, luftskepp som attackerar, bossar som sväller till planetstorlek och helt enkelt så mycket ögongodis att man baxnar. Asuras wrath är helt enkelt ett spel som ska beskådas. Det är ingen revolution men det är ett annorlunda och ruskigt snyggt experiment.

Games TM (7 out of 10)

It's such a tough sell, as it's so short and so little of its running time can actually be defined as 'gameplay'. It's such a maverick, though, and such a bananas way to spend eight hours that's almost certainly something everyone should experience. Just don't go expecting the Earth. Asura's already smashed it to pieces.

While it may be different from most games, Asura’s Wrath shows that games can be more about storytelling than the game, or at least more of a balance than mainly gameplay with a few cut scenes here and there. Given the shortness of the game, it’s at least worth a check out on the weekend, if nothing else.

While its presentation is nice, you might find the over-abundance of quick-time events and aggravating one-on-one duels wearing on you over time.

Video Game Generation (4 out of 10)

You have crazy, over the top fights, endless power-ups, plenty of constipated grunting, screaming and groaning, and lots of crazy hair. Unfortunately, it misses any of Toriyama’s writing ability, characterization, humor, or plotting, and leaves you with a huge lump of crap in your Xbox 360 tray for you to fumigate. There’s a distinct impression that the developers weren’t sure what to do with the game: the animation isn’t quite cel-shaded, but it’s not your standard “realistic” 3D animation either. If you’ve got some developmental issues and find deep meaning to those DBZ episodes where people face off and grunt in consternation for 25 minutes straight, then Asura’s Wrath may be up your alley. Maybe. If you’re like the rest of us and are looking for a game with an engaging plot where you actually get to control your character and play the damn thing, then you’d best look elsewhere, because this sure ain’t it.

Above all else, Asura’s Wrath commits the cardinal sin of video games: It’s not fun. I genuinely commend Capcom for backing such an ambitious, experimental project; I just wish they had read the script first. This was not a story worth telling, and it sure as hell isn’t a story worth paying extra for to see how it “really” ends.
