Excerpt: Afro Samurai has the distinct honor of being one of the lowest scoring video games that Family Friendly Gaming has reviewed. The African American samurai has a possessed headband that enjoys a murderous killing spree. Done with swords of course.
Excerpt: Anyone who’s ever watched more than five minutes worth of anime knows that you can usually expect some pretty weird shit, and the Afro Samurai game based on the anime of the same name is certainly no exception.
Brutal fighting game with profanity, nudity, stereotypes.

Summary: Parents need to know that they should take heed to the "Mature" ESRB warning on Afro Samurai . The game is excessively violent, gory, profane, and shows partial nudity. Explicit sexual references are heard in the dialogue.
Conclusion: There’s a certain allure to it all, however, and that’s undoubtedly due to the incredible presentation. Certain moments, such as a mid-air boss fight and the frequent perusal of beautiful vistas, are remarkably good fun.
Conclusion: In Overall The Game Isn't Hard At All, With The Exception Of Justice (The Final Boss - 1st Form), Ninja Ninja (Too Many Clones) And The Ninja Ninja Body Part Poker Challenges. It Definitely Did The Anime Justice, And In The End It Turned Out To Be One Of The Best Games In It's Genre.
Excerpt: In a hack 'n' slash genre dominated by God of War, Ninja Gaiden and Devil May Cry, you need something pretty special on your hands to stand out. After spending five minutes with Afro Samurai we thought Namco's game of the popular anime series might have a chance.
Excerpt: As Afro Samurai first boots up, you’d be forgiven for being impressed by the big names that flash across the screen during the introduction. Samuel L. Jackson is a name that most people who’ve seen a movie since 1995 will be familiar with, and most will know at least one of the supporting cast.
