Kratos who? has garnered many comparison’s to Sony’s and for good reason. Both are action adventure games featuring demigods who were betrayed and seek vengeance on the gods.

and think they’ve got a winner on their hands. After watching this trailer and following the development of this game I can’t deny that it doesn’t look bad-ass. Does it have what it takes to dethrone the God of War? We shall see when the game releases next month. In the meantime, watch the launch trailer below.

 

Asura’s Wrath is unleashed February 21 in the US and February 24 in Europe for the PS3 and 360.

  1. Asura’s Wrath doesn’t have a chance in fucking hell at dethroning
    God of War. It’s an insult to God of War that this budget, ugly, dull game is
    even being compared to it.

     

    The stories are nothing alike. Kratos is a deep and tragic character who’s full of back-story. He’s not just seeking vengeance, he’s most concerned with seeking atonement. It’s the reason he does what he does in an effort to rid himself of the quilt that consumes him, it’s the Gods who manipulated him, made empty-promises and betrayed him the made him angry and vengeful. 

    In Asura’s Wrath, the main character is just a
    hideously designed thing that shouts, pulls ridiculous facial
    expressions and talks rubbish. There’s no back story to him, the God’s just
    completely randomly kill your wife and kidnap your child, then frame you as a
    traitor for absolutely no fucking reason, that’s called very bad writing
    resulting in a story where its only purpose is to take the player through the
    game without it feeling like an old arcade machine game. It also has horrible voice
    acting and the worst writing I’ve ever heard in a game this generation,
    characters just shout pure nonsense. The musical score seriously gave me a
    headache. The graphics and art-style were ugly and uninspired. The gameplay,
    aside from the excessive and poorly designed QTE’s, was dreadful and the
    shooting was a useless gameplay mechanic. 
     

     

    There’s a reason the God of War franchise is the
    most critically acclaimed and best-selling franchise in the genre, it’s pure
    quality, God of War III currently holds both the aforementioned benchmarks by miles so to even insinuate that this awful creation ‘Asura’s Wrath’ has even a
    microscopic chance at dethroning it makes me slightly hate you Mr. Garrett Hartman. Good
    day sir.

  3. I swear the majority of the sites are on the take so they give reviews for this demo…..this demo was absolutely horrible. The QTE are pointless in this game — in God of War if you miss a quicktime event you get severely punished — When you fight Wyzen the majority of the QTE that pop up you don’t even have to do cause Asura will do it anyways. IE. When you are fighting Wyzen and you pop in the air and are about to do the dive the QTE tells you to push down on the controller – if you don’t nothing happens — he goes into the dive anyway and  when the screen flashes the triangle button (PS3) don’t ever push it and you will get the same result as if you had……HORRIBLE DEMO

  4. This game is soooo awesome, I can’t wait until the final product, but the only flaw about this game is the SIMPLE QTE….. If you are going to make a game that has a QTE at least make it a challenging one where the player have to quickly put in the prompt of the event….For instance, GOD OF 1, 2, AND 3 where if the player is going to go into a QTE, they must quickly put in the prompt, and if we get it wrong you lose a great deal of damage…..If Asura’s Wrath has that GOD OF WAR feel as far as QTE’s this game would be a game that ALL PLAYERS would love….

  5. seeking atonement my ass.  how about how fuck up the world was after kratos killed each god?and you even miss spelled guilt you jack ass. and randomly killed asura wife? have you read the fucking story line you doche? they frame him so they can build a new world when the old king died. i wouldn’t say it better than GOW YET. so we should all fucking calm down and play the fucking game when it comes out. plus the only the DEMO came out now. not the fucking game. so you bitches stop complaing the game horrible. WAIT FOR THE EFFING GAME WILL YA?
