  • Summary: Afro Samurai is a very capable brawler. The combat is well-executed throughout. The music and voice acting are both top-notch, but the sound effects need some work. The graphics are consistently impressive, from great environments, to lovingly-crafted character models. The story has some huge divergences from the animated series, but they work to the game’s benefit rather than its detriment. All in all, a quality first offering from a promising new studio.
  • Pros: Unique visuals, Excellent music & voice acting, Interesting story divergences
  • Cons: Sound effects could be better, Some gameplay hiccups

  • Excerpt: Let me cut to the chase. I have never seen an entire episode of the Afro Samurai anime. I am familiar with it, I have seen the commercials and I know a little about it from friends, but I wouldn't identify myself as the type of person that Afro Samurai is aimed towards. That being said, the time I spent with Afro Samurai was very enjoyable and now I'm browsing Amazon.com for the anime on DVD so I can see what I missed. I think that qualifies it as a success.

  • Excerpt: Slice it to pieces and dissect each individual limb like an adolescent science student with an unfortunate toad and you’ll find Afro Samurai contains everything it should. Everything’s even in the right places. Had this creature been a resident of the Gallapagos Islands, Darwin would’ve maybe called it “simple” from an evolutionary point of view.

  • Conclusion: The game definitely needs some work. I think it has a lot of potential to be better, but Namco has to work on the A.I. and the depth just a bit more. With that said, it's not too bad and at least worth a look/rental. I think if they stick to this formula, improve upon it, it might be the start of a really great series.
