Summary: This game has a unique style, overall enjoyable but not excellent. The camera can become annoying if you're constantly having to adjust when your enemies go off-screen. The game is sometimes difficult on bosses or when you're in a mob of enemies. Otherwise most of the time you will get away simply with button mashing. I wish there were an HP bar, I just like to know ahead of time when I'm going to die.
Summary: i think this game sounded truly good on paper but it seems to be missing that little bit of umpf that the show had. this game truly is fun and exciting to say the least, the art style works perfect. the gameplay is really fun and at any time you can dismember enemies.however the story does not follow the show 100% and it seems to cop out at times.however the boss fight with afros doppleganger in the sky is truly mesmerizing.
Summary: What an odd game this is, first the cons: It is a button masher no doubt about it Regular enemies get repetitive fast and they are little more than zombies There's lags everywhere Camera is just a paint in the rear Platforming is just another pain There is no HUD Little replay value You have no real incentive to learn combos o exp up Bosses can be really cheap There is no clear way to know where you have a check point As far as I have seen you have infinite lives Image...
Did they fix the camera in an update? Now it ROCKS!

Summary: Okay I knew this game didn't get very high reviews but I loved the art style of it. Also where else can you find a game with Samuel Jackson in it and Rza beats? So I had to have it. This game looks BEAUTIFUL graphically. Now for the game play. This is a button masher accept for bosses. I don't mind that as I have some intense games that require a lot of thinking and skill so I figured I would get this to be my relax and kill stuff to good music game.
A suprisingly well made franchise game, that gets better the more you play

Summary: I generally hate franchise games. Not because they fall short of classic status, but because they fall short of decent. Any superman game comes into mind. These atrocious games have made me largely ignore franchise games. But every once in a while, I'll see something on sale, or getting decent reviews and cave in and get one. Though usually the case, Afro Samurai was a surprisingly great game. The action, while repetitive has surprising depth.
Summary: I've read many reviews about this game before i eventually purchased it. Reading those review is what caused the hesitation of buying this game. Finally after giving in on behalf of major love for the cartoon, Sam Jackson and the RZA, I really dig thise game. It's raelly like a dynsty warriors meets the afro samurai cartoon. Pretty good mix for me. I being a good fan of the dynasty warriors franchise. The gameply control wise is fairly cool.
