Summary: Terribly uninspired story line. Controls are weakly laid out. Basically just button mashing for the first half hour until I grew tired of it, took out the game and put it away for something better. I expected much better from the franchise. Poor effort at best.
Summary: I have always wanted to see a beloved anime go big screen go video game go poo and this is just a perfect example of it. The game play was some of the loosest I have ever touched. Graphics were nice but a bit out of date lets get off the PS2. The sounds of a unique tittle such as Afro samurai should have been a blast to listen to if I didn't have to listen to it over and over and over. The lasting appeal wasn't there and if it was it didn't last.
Summary: Where do I start? Graphics suck, voice acting, story is broken and loosely held together. Music OK. Mechanics are a little tough for the combos at times. There's no good tutorials, I mean I could go on and on about how much this game sucks. Bottom line, only buy this if it comes free with a pack of gum or a happy meal at McDonalds.
Summary: This tepid hack-and-slash appears to be an interactive version of the anime series. Sadly, it fails in almost every regard. The controls are frustrating, the moves redundant, and the story vague. But, hey, at least it looks nice. Long story short, I felt ashamed for having bought this abomination.
Summary: Ladies and Gentlemen, don't believe the hype of these so called user reviews. this game is a button masher. there is no difference in play between the 1st 15 minutes, and the last 15 minutes. this game is just another bad "movie-game". if you need this game, wait 2 weeks and pick up the used copies for [...] bucks.
Conclusion: Downloaded a demo of this from the U.S playstation store. Basically a ’Ninja Gaiden’ ripoff, with cel-shaded graphics. Its gets boring very quickly, and the constant foul language is very infantile. Get ’Ninja Gaiden Sigma (U.S version), or Devil May Cry 4 instead of this rubbish.
