    Watched the 2 animes then played game,its a blast,the camera angles are a bit squiffy sometimes...but the buckets of blood and limbs,scalps,brains...etc...flying through the air as you slice and dice your way through the levels makes up for it..good graphics great sound and voice/lip sync....yes it is a button pusher..but if you take time to learn the many moves..its easier on yourWatched the 2 animes then played game,its a blast,the camera angles are a bit squiffy sometimes...but the buckets of blood and limbs,scalps,brains...etc...flying through the air as you slice and dice your way through the levels makes up for it..good graphics great sound and voice/lip sync....yes it is a button pusher..but if you take time to learn the many moves..its easier on your thumbs...go and play this bro...

    Falling through the air while brawling with Afro Droid while rocking out to some fat beats is an amazing experience, but when you couple that with a piss-poor camera, terrible platforming sections, and cheap/mentally challenged bosses, the end product suffers.

    Far from perfect but still an incredibly entertaining play, Afro Samurai captures all of the style and substance from the hit TV show with amazingly innovative combat and absolutely stunning visuals.
  3. It’s really too bad that Afro Samurai is bogged down by nagging annoyances, because the core game is actually decent, if not spectacular. If it had a healthy dose of polish it would be a solid rental (but not full-price purchase).
