This game is seriously different. More like a book or manga, than something you play. You watch most of it, and boy are there things to watch. Asura's Wrath is a true step in the direction of games as art, with most of it being presented as either "quick time events" (pushing buttons as they show up on screen as in interacting with a cutscene), or short, well put together fighting or shooting sequences. The art style is fantastic and the animation is incredible.
HOWEVER, if you're like me. The story and art of this game are not really my style. I give it a high rating because it controls solidly, looks good, and feels great to play with a fleshy story; but I didn't play it for more than an hour because I could not get into that story. You don't sit there and read a book that you don't like the story to, do ya? If you like the story, sit back and enjoy; but if you don't like crazy gods and space shenanigans, stay away.

all that mellodrama is NOT for me so I could not play this game or very long. If your a Bleach or Dragonball GT fan. this game wont bother you. But if your like me than all that yelling, male pride issues, and cry baby weak female roles ( that this game is oversaturated in ) wont bother. You and all
