This game is awesome. I've seen lots of feedback saying that it's akin to watching a movie or a game that's trying to be a quicktime event. Let me assure you, these reviews are wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed this game. The story is awesome, the graphics are DOPE, and beating up everything in your path with super moves is incredibly satisfying.
Final Word - Check it out, for sure. Your eyes will thank you because that's how beautiful this game looks on your television. Also, who doesn't like a good beat 'em up?
I don't like long cut-scenes. But I liked the long cut-scenes in this game. I hate quick-time button inputs during cut-scenes. But I did not mind them at all in this game. Sometimes the style of modern Japanese games gives me the creeps, but I will remember this game for how cool the style was (even though the creepyness is right there plain to see, it's somehow ok). On paper this game should suck. But it is paradoxically pretty darn cool. Am I glad I did not pay 60 bucks for Asura's Wrath? Yes. But I am even more glad I rented it. I do not think a sequel would be wise, but I would look forward to a spiritual successor from Capcom in this unique genre they have invented and of which this game so far is the only example. Tip: Try playing it in Japanese voice with English subs.
