Asura’s Wrath Demo Review

  • As soon as I heard the demo for Asura’s Wrath was out today, I stopped doing whatever I was doing, turned on my PS3 and downloaded the demo. I was so excited because this is one of those over-the-top games that you don’t see that often. The last one was Bayonetta in my opinion and it was a great game. But unfortunately Capcom’s Asura’s Wrath disappointed me, a lot.

    Asura's Wrath Demo Review

    The demo gives you two episodes (5 and 11) to play with and you are controlling the main protagonist Asura. In episode 5 you will fight against a big fat deity (one of many deities in the game) and in episode 11 you will fight against your ex-master. Let me cut it short and tell you that, this game, or at least the demo, is nothing but a combination of button mashing and quick time events. Most of the time you will be clicking or mashing the circle button until your Burst gauge fills up and the scene continues when you release the Burst by pressing R2. There is barely any time where you will actually be playing the demo as an action game. You are basically watching an interactive movie, mind you, a pretty good anime movie to be honest because it reminds me of Dragon Ball Z, one of my childhood all time favorite. But then again, would I buy this interactive anime movie/game for the full $59.99 price tag plus tax? Hell no!

    I really hope the full game offers more than what the demo did for me as this is quite disappointing as I have high hopes on this one based on the trailers so far. But if all I did was pressing buttons while watching an anime, this one wouldn’t go well in my opinion.
