GameInformer: Asura's Wrath Review

GameInformer- Asura’s Wrath isn’t as brainless as it may want you to believe. The ridiculous moments and likable characters kept me smiling, which was odd, considering it’s essentially a story about misery. It’s a nice change of pace from other hack-and-slash games, featuring an interesting story that’s not blocked off by insurmountable difficulty.

If a game isn't difficult then what is the thing that is going to make you come back to this game ? What bothers me about this score is that it's too high for a game you're probably going to play once.

Games that give you more replay value and gives you a challenge should be given a score like this or higher.

Most people play single player games once. Unless its a RPG. Im getting this game just not for 59.99

That isn't true. Justifying it and saying "all single player games are like that" isn't true. I can name you over a dozen single player games that you don't play once cause of the incentive of it's difficulty making you come back for more and overall replay value.

People call MGS 4 a "movie", but they fail to realize that there are sooooooooooooooo many ways when it comes to approaching the playable parts of that game and Asura's Wrath has none of that.

I'm not saying all single player games are like that i just said most people only play single player games once. Hell i cant even watch the same movie twice no matter how good it is. To be honest i play games now for entertainment and enjoyment now. Difficulty doesn't always make it better and no im not talking about Dark/Demon Souls.

I wish they did some survey on trophies/achievements to see how many people beat a game more than once.

Don't you think your generalizing a bit much, how do you know most people play a game once and that's it ? In my opinion if you only played a single player game once it was probably bad or didn't have replay value or something else happened like you had to play another game he/she bought.

"I wish they did some survey on trophies/achievements to see how many people beat a game more than once"

That would be cool.

What bothers me is the shorter and shorter games trend. 4-6hr single player campaigns are becoming too common now and reviewers give them a free pass on that because they get the game for free, meaning they dont have to pay $65 bucks for a very short game, unlike the actual consumers who are getting less and less bang for their buck. Robbery I tell you! Robbery!

Said it before; I'll get this when it's cheaper. Just dont have money to be spending aimlessly.
