This game took everything insane, outrageous, glorious and awesome about anime and made it playable. I love anime and manga, so playing Asura’s Wrath was like a dream come true. The fight in the trailer is a great example. Fighting a man larger than the planet you are standing on is quite the sight to see. The game plays in 18 episodes, similar to anime. Most episodes can be finished within a half hour. This contributes to the six hour total game time to finish it but again I think this is a good thing. Some of my favorite anime have been short series. Baccano, FLCL, Afro Samurai, are just a few examples. They are wonderful series that didn’t need to go any further, in fact going further could have possible damaged the series (coughBleachcough). I pictured Asura’s Wrath as a playable anime the entire time, therefore I was ok with the short game span. The graphics had a very strong anime vibe to them which I fell in love with. The entire game all I kept thinking was that more anime should be done with graphics like this.
Anyway, this is a game that I believe anime fans would enjoy and I personally am glad that I could cross it off my list of want to play games.
Hey I’d love to hear your opinions, what did you think of the anime feel?
