  • 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.

  • 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 .

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.
