Our reviewer, Alex "The Hammer' Rubens, took a look at weirdo Japanese game Asura's Wrath, and found it to be a great experience, if only barely a "game." While it sometimes feels more like an interactive movie, AW's story is so compelling and so interesting, it cannot be denied. Here's a taste of the the Asura's Wrath review.
"Asura’s Wrath is a great game, but it also isn’t much of a game to begin with. In terms of story and presentation, Asura’s tale is one of the best of this console generation. But the majority of the game is out of player control, there isn’t much gameplay involved –roughly six hours worth. If you can manage to sit through the cutscenes and become invested in the story, Asura’s Wrath is a great experience, and one of the most outright fun games this year."
