Asura is a robotic/cybernetic, demigod apart of a group of other demigods called Eight generals who protect humans using the power of mantra. Each demigod has a different sign that makes em stronger (Asuras is wrath). A lot of em sounds like the seven deadly sins, except well there eight of em. Their enemy is the Gohma which get their power from the will of the planet Gaea(Earth). The Commander of the Eight Generals devises a plan to eliminate the gohma completely by bringing forth a rebirth, but he needed power Asuras daughter possessed. Asura would never allow it so they betrayed him(I know wrong one to make angry his mantra is wrath). They steal his daughterand dispose him. 12,000 years pass and he is revived himslf, nothing has changed for the better. In fact its worse, over the course of time theyve aquired power the pawns Asura yet he still manages to hold his on against each attack eh sometimes.
You will find your screamin at the top of your lungs as you pulverise your enemies. Counters Finishers Strong Attacks Unlimited Mode and BURST are what you need to combine in order to get to the next part of the game but each fight you must have some kind of strategy and stick with- do this and youll be watching the story unfold just like a show(more like anime). Music fits perfectly. Voice actors were excellent. You wont find any holes in the story that arent fixed by dlc i suggest you download except 11.5 and 15.5 just watch those online trust me. Graphics fit the type of game it is.
You will be entertain by this more than you think the is a certain chapter where you go beserk its crazy.
The only DISLIKE I had was the character OLGA(mantra lust) one she was all that lust worthy two she really annoyin and irritatin three she was just a lil doggy to the Commander, Deus (Da Boss,(mantra pride) yes the only black guy is the boss). I HATE HER.

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.
