I found Heavy Rain to be a completely boring and shallow game, not going to lie. I rented it and played through it once, got some trophies and literally sent it back in 5 days early. I chalked it up to the style of game it was - a QTE game. I am that guy who actually cries at movies and TV, yet the story of Heavy Rain still completely bored me as well as the actual things you do in the game.
So I kind of passed off on Asura's Wrath after hearing about it's focus on QTEs.
Out of curiosity I downloaded the demo, and I'm completely blown away. This is how QTE games should be done - a complete mindfuck, a massive wall of visual candy just being thrown at you. I liken this game to an interactive anime, complete with the campiness and the sound effects.
Who else has given the game a shot and came back with a completely different mindset?
