ASURA'S WRATH is a fantasy action combat video game in which gamers play a Demi God framed for a murder he didn't commit. The game was classified '15' for moderate violence and gore.

The BBFC's Guidelines at '12A'/'12' state 'Moderate violence is allowed but should not dwell on detail. There should be no emphasis on injuries or blood, but occasional gory moments may be permitted if justified by the context'. ASURA'S WRATH is accompanied by additional material, including trailers from an earlier version of the game. In one of these we see a giant being stabbed in the eye, resulting in large blood spurts. Although the game has a clear fantasy context and the violence lacks any clear injury detail, there is still an emphasis on blood that means this trailer is more appropriately classified at '15' where 'Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury. The strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable'. Throughout game play itself, blood is replaced with fiery orange light and the violence is only moderate in nature.

ASURA'S WRATH also contains moderate sex references, during a scene in which Asura plays a drinking game with a scantily clad maiden with large breasts. However, there is no nudity or sexual activity.
