You play as a demon incarnate and obliterate your way through the randomly generated fortress of the Daeva empire. Equip weapons from a wide variety of arsenal and carefully craft your character using the ever changing skill tree. The game can be brutal but it is always fair. Can you rise from the ashes? Can you defeat the Daeva empire?
Asura's Wrath E3 Trailer
Overall, Asura is pretty good outside of my bias towards the game. It still deserves praise for what it is: a great story that has engaging gameplay. There is some replay value with this game, but I'd say it's more up to the individual if they want to run through the game again. I applaud people who subject themselves to something like this; completing this game is not an easy task.
Right off the bat, I started asking who the villain of this game was supposed to be. Was it the heavenly Daeva with their making morally questionable choices? Or was it the Rhaksasha-empowered Asura, controlled by me, laying seige to the heavenly realms as a one man army? Normally in a roguelike game I don’t get wrapped up in plot or backstory. But Asura is a different beast. Touching on a mythology that we hardly ever see represented in video games, Ogre Head Studio’s two man team takes us on a challenging journey through Indian lore.
