Summary: Game is okay. The fighting seems to be less lethal than what I am used to, and AFRO is sought of slow when engaging his enemies, plus it is a story line and I would rather a fighting game with action consistently.
Summary: I had a ton of fun with this game, still there are some problems with it. Sometimes you have to do very specific slices with your katana that were hard for me to get down. At the end when you face a nearly endless, and i mean endless, wave of the same enemy was hands down the stupidest part of the...
Meh, i hoped for better but what i really got was an OK game.

Summary: I love the show, i love the idea i even loved the demo in all of its flaws. And yet somehow after playing the game i just couldnt get the same feeling i had when i played the demo. Some things that annoyed me. Leveling up. What the hell is that!
Summary: Great fantastic art, once again the next gen machines have produced some beautiful graphics...but once again another game not worth playing...I really really wished I could play more of it, but I just can't get myself to go back.

Summary: Story Line - movie like, "I will avenge my father's death" while trying earn the little piece of a white cloth to wrap around my Afro Soundtrack - PLUS VOICE OVER - PLUS, but also can get annoying Samuel Jackson's funny but not all the time.
Great graphic and concept. Very frustrating camera movement.

Summary: The first thing one notices in this game are the graphics, which are indeed awesome. It is like playing a comic book. The story line is classic--a son avenging the murder of his father. Samuel L. Jackson's voice overs definitely add to the fun. As does the first-rate soundtrack.
Summary: This game looks very cool. The cell-shaded graphics are a good touch and the gore factor stays true to the show, but after that Afro Samurai does not have much else to offer. The gameplay starts out fun but quickly becomes repetitive. The levels are pretty bland and are often recycled.
Summary: Because being a fun, ultraviolent anime blast wasn't enough, Afro Samurai makes the splash into the video game world courtesy of Namco Bandai. Samuel L. Jackson returns to lend his voice to the revenge-driven Afro as well as his foul-mouthed sidekick Ninja Ninja, in a storyline that more or less...
