Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible The only redeeming quality about the game is the music which you really need to change the sound levels for to even hear properly. Gameplay is boring and glitchy, camera angles are ridiculously stupid. Always the same loading thing in between levels and you always start levels the same way. Boring and just plain annoying to play. The show and movie were fantastic and the game is impressively disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the best unknown games out there Afro samurai is one of the best unknown games out there along side with splatter house,sniper ghost warrior,Turok,and wolfenstein anyways its like old school japan has gotten high tech with the robots and etc not to mention Samuel Jackson steals the show as ninja ninja well Afro's the main star and no one knows who's the actor of Afro samurai Afro rarely speaks and its based off the violent gory and sexiest mini series and sure to most people the graphics look cartoonish and stuff but hey to me it looks great and you wield a sword that can slice threw enemies like a hot knife threw warm butter and it comes in with a clever game ninja ninjas body part poker and the characters look amazing Afro samurai,Brother six,Justice,Okiku,and kuma this game deserves to be known but it can be hard to find sometimes and namco and surge need to make more copies and stuff but its fun violent and 100% awesome

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Game was good, Samuel L Jackson made it great I really had a lot of fun with this game. Its a hack and slash game to the core and the story is really invigorating. That and the one-liners by Samuel L Jackson make it priceless. My friend and I beat the game in a little under 8 hours and had a blast with it. Definatly worth picking up for under $10

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SLICING First, I have to say, this have great graphics. It's really fun slicing opponents and everything. But one problem I faced was on one of the part where I have to make a perfect cut. I'm still stuck there. I don't know how long the story line is. I hope it's long. I like long story lines. What it lacks, is multiplayer. Multiplayer will be fun it it's added. I had a lot of fun playing this. There's no health bar, and there's very hard enemies which is fun for me since I like it more realistic. I hope they'll make another one of this with multiplayer. Than, this game will be lots of fun and lots of people will buy and play. Everyone loves games with multiplayer. There's no other problem with this game that I can think of. I'll also like to see a maybe dojo or practice mode to add to the fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could Have Been Longer If you're looking for a mindless hack n' slasher look no further, this is the game. The story will be quite confusing if you're not a fan of the series, the graphics are average, but its a cell shader so they did well there. The controls are very good as well as the sound. The game has a good engine for its kind, you can dismember a body limbs and chop up baddies into pieces just like the anime. Samuel L Jackson has a voice role in this game too lol. The boss fights can get very hard and tedious so bring you A game when you play this, the storymode could have been longer I was able to beat in 5 hours, I was expecting at least a 10 hr for a SP experience, overall the game wasn't that bad and I'll re-iterate, if you're looking for a mindless hack n slash this is the game for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it's not bad but not great. At first i thought that this would be a good game to play over and over but it wasn't. Don't get me wrong this is a great game but after you beat it it gets..... well boaring. Personly i liked the fact that you can just kill for the fun of it but it was way to short. It needed way more fights and more enemies, not just the same ones. It is good the first time around but not the second. There needs to be more bosses and a way to choose the way your level up afects afro. Don't think that it's not a good game to buy, it's just not a good game to play over and over. It took me five days to beat and that was a let down to me personly. I mean if you like games that you have to kill people for no reason than this is game for you.... but if you like a game that is long than it is not for you sorry.
