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.

Test Afro Samurai

  • 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

Afro Samurai

Saving Progress
2 May 2009
  • 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 (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
1 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Afro Samurai is one of my favorite animes of all time, so when I heard there was going to be a game adaptation my mind conjured up the dream of playing through one of my favorite stories. The TV show is very much action oriented so it seemed like a perfect fit for a video game; it is unfortunate that the game of my dreams was never actually created.

  • Excerpt: Games like Devil May Cry, Heavenly Sword, and God of War fall into a specific sub-genre within the action world, and it's a genre that certainly needs more games. Afro Samurai is the most recent fast-paced action beat 'em' up to grace our consoles, and it comes loaded with a slick presentation. Based on the anime of the same name, and starring Samuel L.

  • Conclusion: Trots Samuel L Jackson och en läcker grafik blir det här spelet aldrig mer än ok. För mycket störningsmoment förstör upplevelsen.
  • Pros: Riktigt snyggt och mycket bra röstskådespelare. Stundtals bra strider.

  • Conclusion: Très convaincant sur la forme, Afro Samurai pêche toutefois par un gameplay un tantinet répétitif et par une durée de vie somme toute assez courte. Si l'on apprécie le côté gore des combats qui rend les coups parfaits particulièrement jouissifs, on regrette en revanche que les coups débloqués en cours de jeu ne soient pas spécialement utiles, et que les phases de plateforme proposées durant l'aventure ne bénéficient pas d'une meilleure précision.
  • Pros: Le système de combat, Une bonne réalisation, La musique signée RZA
  • Cons: Assez répétitif, Un scénario difficile à suivre, Relativement court
