Not unless you're into button mashing and frustrating achievements.

and then there's the nasty camera

i got the game because i loved the series and though i enjoyed most of it

i suggest that you tour the Afro Samurai Forum on this site, it's information will help if you choose to chase this 1000

currently and if i am totally honest i have 800 in this

my opinion is that this game is great. Its one of my favorites on xbox. If you've seen any of the gameplay you know exactly what to expect. Fun and gory action flick with good story and excellent presentation.

Frustrating achievements? I have no idea why you think that. Comparing to the rest of the good games in the genre like Bayonetta, DMC4 and even Batman the achievements are on par.

its mediocre with a somewhat unfocused design aesthetic.

There are times where the game's graphics, music, and style come together real well and everything works, but these are few compared to the numerous other times where it feels like a lazy low budget bargain bin game.

Game is unpolished in a lot of spots too. Sometimes people will be speaking and they didn't bother to animate their lips. It also has the frustrating brand of difficulty where normal enemies are usually really easy to kill, but bosses have the tendancy to be annoying and difficult.

The game design is somewhat confusing. There's lots of emphasis on dial-a-combos but they're impractical because their either too hard to pull off or you keep getting knocked out of the longer ones. They're also made pointless since most normal enemeis can be killed with a single parry attack or focus strike anyway. Most bosses are frustrating unless you know how to exploit the shoddy programming.

It bothered me someone claimed Afro Samurai's game engine was going to be used for Metal Gear Rising. Ugh I hope not.

I really liked that game, even if I'm usually not a big fan of button mashing games. It was a bit too difficult for me on hard mode, but for people who regularely play games of this type, it might not be as hard. I actually got stuck on the hard playthrough (might actually try it again, now that I write about Afro Samurai).
But all in all it was fun. It was a nice change compared to other games, plus the music and the epic Samuel L. Jackson voice are awesome.

Unless you're looking for a bargain button masher just pass. This game had its moments but overall will leave you disappointed.

I picked this game up really cheap ($4) and was enjoying ti...until the fight with the guy in the bear mask....after an hour of trying to beat him I gave up. Game got real repetitive after a while too.

Game is super repetitive. It is also super annoying. The storyline is garbage and the achievements either come fast and easy or hard and difficult. And I hate Micheal Jackson yelling "AFRO!!" every 2 minutes. I play through this game with the TV muted.

I found this game strangely entertaining. My kid bought it as a present for me and it sat for a very long time before I tried it. Glad I did. Yes its a button masher, but that's not so bad once in a while. Reminds me a bit of ninja gaiden

Cool Graphics are good, Gameplay is cool, achievements are tough...

Hello, I picked up the game for 9.95 new at GameStop a few months ago and I liked the game at first and was gettin into the story and liked that Samuel l Jackson was your guide/gps (lol). I got as far as completing sword masters story when I then had to throw enemies into some electrical thing and i was having difficulties with it and go frustrated and le my friend borrow it I plan on getting it back because I want to get past it but I think it will just be future frustration...

Samuel L. Jackson voice acting and RZA of the Wu Tang Clan on production. That sold it for me.

Game is pure garbage. The camera angle gets on my nerves, the checkpoints are crappy as hell, and over half the time you never even know what you have to do and where you have to go.

I got this game extremely cheap and it's not even worth the few dollars I got it for. In fact, I just pulled it out my xbox and through it across my room for it to almost break into two pieces.
