I wanna like this one. Gave me a godhand vibe for a moment.
But this game wishes it was godhand.
The QTEs are pretty and intense, but the base gameplay lacks technique and depth. It's as MasterKing said, you sit there and fill up your bar to activate the next QTE sequence... but from what I see it's usually from mashing a single button or type of attack.
All the while, your character goes "RAAHHHH" "UGHHH" "UHHRAAAAAAAH" and the bad guy goes "REEEEEEEEEEHHHH!!!!!" "WHAAAAAAA!" Then Asura gets beat down and goes "URRRRGGGRAAAAH!!!" then he makes a mean face and yells again and gets the upper hand all while going "GRRRAAAAAAAAHHH!!!"
I'm not gonna lie.... it get's fucking annoying.
If Asura's wrath wants to achieve enlightenment, im hoping it has a LOT more going on in terms of gameplay. As epic as it was, that bossbattle didn't really impress me. It's cool seeing QTE being pushed to the extreme, it's intense, but I wanna feel like a god too.
