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: This is a fun game but certain points are a bit frustrating. It does not save your progress very well so if you make it half way through a stage and die it starts you over completely at the stage instead of where you died like most good games due these days. Game play is great except for the stages that will drive you a bit mad. They should have done more testing with average game players. An updated version would be great. Don't pay more than $30 for it!
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! It would be more interesting if you had some form of life bar to see that way we knew when to block and when to look for those teddy bears to get our health back. You go far too long in between times when you chop someone up.
Summary: I like this game simply because it has a char voiced by Samuel L. Jackson. On the other hand game play is very linear. If you want a more freeform game that is similar look at Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. A word of warning, there is a problem with this game. Starting since Firmware version 3.15 the game freezes at start. You just have to go into your Audio settings and disable Multi Output Audio.
Summary: Amazing soundtrack. Excellent swordplay. Not enough diversity of enemy. Camera can get clunky at times. Environment is not consistent (ie certain ledges are platforms while others that should be are not)

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. Graphics - I rather Watch the Anime Camera Angle - OMG this what I hate about this game.
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. As another reviewer has noted, the weak point in this game is the camera movements.
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 follows the plot of the first Afro Samurai flick, as you take on hordes of enemies and dish out bloody punishment.
Conclusion: I wouldn't be British without moaning first. This game is really short. Two days play will have you complete the game and maybe a further day to collect all of the murders of crows you need to look for. Which aren't trophies either. No multiplayer and very limited replay-ability.
