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.

I got this game for $4.99 CDN new and it's well worth the five dollars. It involves a bit of button smashing, but not to the point where you destroy your controller. There are very annoying cutscenes, but all in all it is quite a bearable and fairly enjoyable game. So far I have invested only about an hour or so into the game, but it's been quite fun and my I've already achieved a 14 of the 48 achievements. The game itself is kinda of sub-par with poor graphics for it's release, a narration and story that was not portrayed well, and boss battles that are a bitch. Tbh, the game was made more as an attempt to cash out on the afro samurai franchise, but the game isn't a bad game from my point of view

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.
