Forums - Gaming Discussion - Asura's Wrath is more Heavy Rain than God of War

Here's a preview to clarify, it's a good read regardless of your gaming preferences.

tl;dr version: Don't go in expecting a hack'n'slash game, go in expecting to be led through a story.

Anybody going in expecting fine tuned hack'n'slash mechanics will be disappointed. The thread is for people to get their expectations adjusted accordingly.

By buying the shit out of it.



The demo alone was already better than anything from the GOW series.

Every time i read something about this game it's getting better and better



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

Did you create that account only to troll GoW? 



Thanks for posting. My interest in the game went from zero to mild :)



Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?

Kinda cool they seem to understand to fill a specific niche and sell the game to 200K happy gamers who crave for a unique and awkward experience, instead of trying to rip-off God of War and fail at it.



Well, based on my experience with the demo, i would say this is more like Naruto UNS. Though, with a little more QTE on the way (since the game is bigger than Naruto UNS story mode, i hope).

I even find difficult to compare the pacing of this game to the one in HR. Would we also brush Asura's theeths here, or open doors?
