Afro Samurai Style can be a dangerous thing in games. If used with gameplay that backs up it's style, the game is actually more sucessful for example Prince of Persia featured a cool cel-shaded look but also was a quality platformer and featured a moving story. However, things get hairy when a game merely relies on its style, not providing a good gameplay experience whatsoever. Games that sadly fell through this catagory include Facebreaker among others. With Afro Samurai, it's certain that it doesn't fall into the first catagory-it features some pretty stylish visuals but in terms of providing an actual gameplay experience, it's sadly derrivative, annoying ...

This. Is. Epic. Afro Samurai is a 3D brawler with platform elements based on the manga / anime of the same name following a similar plot to the tv series. The plot of the game follows Afro (The protagonist) who is after the evil 'Justice' who killed his father. The reason for this is that Afro's father held the number one headband, this is a bandana which gives the wearer the abilities of a God, however there is also a number two headband, only the person who holds the number two headband can challenge the number one, but anyone can challenge the number two for the right to gain their headband and fight the number one. Justice is the ... Read the complete review

Having played a demo of the game I downloaded from the Xbox website, I decided to play the whole game because of the amazing graphics and entertaining narrative provided by Samuel L. Jackson. *** Type of Game *** This is an action-adventure beat-em-up. You have to navigate your way around the levels and solve some puzzles such as moving levers and chopping ropes to progress past certain areas. The main part of the game though is killing all the enemies along the way! As with most games in this genre the difficulty increases as you progress and there is a Boss you have to defeat at the end of each level. Most of the killing you do is pure hacking ...

Afro Samurai is the latest slice em' up gore-fest for the Xbox 360, based upon the infamous five-episode anime of the same name. You play as the titular Afro Samurai (so named because his unruly hairstyle), a young man on a bloody mission for vengeance in a feudal yet somehow futuristic Japan. Many years ago Afro's father, the owner of the supposedly magical Number One headband, was decapitated by Justice, the current Number Two, who replaced Afro senior as the countries number one swordsman. Older and much more experienced Afro has now gained the status of the Number Two and will stop at nothing until he has vanquished Justice, and avenged his father's brutal demise.

I bought this game because I knew a little bit about the manga and thought I would give the game a try. My first reaction to the game was how lovely the graphics looked, how awesome it was to have Samual L Jackson doing the voice over. The minute you begin to play you are thrown into Afro Samurai's life story which is pretty unpleasant. You have to work your way up by killing many other samurai, ninjas, assassins, weird robot creatures and various bosses. Along the way you have to make sure you find memento's which are murder of crows which couldn't have been made tinier or more obscure so you have to go back and find them all in order to unlock new fighting skills which Read the complete review
