Afro Samurai PS3 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Afro Samurai, the cult cartoon series, is a unique blend of an afro and yes a samurai, hip-hop, Samuel L. Jackson and Japanese culture. It’s unique even in the field of anime, which is saying a lot. Conversely, the game version doesn’t share its namesakes uniqueness. Afro Samurai focuses on the events of the first series of the show. Afro, a black cigarette smoking samurai with big hair, is on a quest to get revenge on his fathers murderer.

  • Conclusion: If you're a fan of the show, then Afro Samurai is definitely a game you should take the time to play. It may lack polish in a few key parts, and it may be shorter than we'd like, but the fact of the matter is that the game is a blast. The sense of style has been lifted from the anime and once you start busting out some Focus powers you'll definitely feel the rush. In the end this one is more suited for a rental, but it's one that fans have to check out.

  • Excerpt: The legend says that only the warrior who wears the Number 2 headband has the right to challenge the Number One for the sacred power he possesses. That Number One used to be Afro Samurai’s father right up until a man named Justice chopped off his head and became a god. Now Afro wears the Number 2 and seeks Number One—not for power but revenge… For a doujinshi manga to become an animated TV series in Japan isn’t uncommon, but to do so in the manner of Takashi Okazaki’s...

  • Conclusion: In the end, I was glad it was over. The initial flare it possessed had faded away long ago, and the whole experience began to dull and repeat itself. I do commend Jackson for working on projects such as this. It’s very similar to to his reason for playing in Snakes on a Plane . He used to watch crappy movies like that when he was a young punk, and so he wanted to give back.

Afro Samurai Review

28 April 2009
  • Excerpt: In a hack 'n' slash genre dominated by God of War, Ninja Gaiden and Devil May Cry, you need something pretty special on your hands to stand out. After spending five minutes with Afro Samurai we thought Namco's game of the popular anime series might have a chance. We were dazzled by some lovely cel-shaded visuals, copious amounts of gore and a control scheme that allowed you to have instant fun. Hours later things weren't nearly as rosy.

Generation NT
27 April 2009
  • Conclusion: En dépit des lacunes précédemment nommées, il est clair qu'A fro Samurai présente des qualités techniques indéniables, malgré quelques disparités que nous ne manquerons pas de vous préciser. Offrant un moteur graphique Cel Shadé finement conçu, la production s'octroie également de quelques effets crayonnés dans l'optique de coller à l'ambiance du manga.
  • Pros: Qualité esthétique indéniable, Bande sonore riche et variée, Combats dynamiques, Système de concentration intéressant et stylé, Interface minimaliste, Voix originales conservées
  • Cons: Durée de vie minimale, Problèmes de collision et d'interaction, Caméra molle, Scénario tronqué, Bugs et disparités sonore, Manque de sensations de combat, Animations ridicules des ennemis
