Just watched some YouTube videos on this game. It does not look that bad.

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.

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 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

I went into this game blind and not really expecting much and I've turned out to really like it. I loved the music and the atmosphere of the game, there wasn't much in the story to draw you in, however. Definitely not a must have but still a very fun game in my opinion.

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...

The thing i like the most on this game is samuel jacksons voice over. The achievements are tough but well worth the challenge if your up for it

When the demo came out, about the same time as when this thread was made 2 years ago, I tried it and hated it.

I started it yesterday and I really like it.
Sure the achievements are tough (talking about the poker ones) but more annoying than impossible.
Working on my last two poker ones (ninjas and ronin) and one more collectible I missed and then it's just hard mode and the grinds.
Wondering how hard HARD actually is gonna be.

If you're really into the anime and manga then you might like it. I wasn't keen on it myself, the combat felt off and it's mostly just a story I can't get into.

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.

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

This was one of my favorite games.
The achevo for "Completionist" is one of the harder achievements to get and the one that keeps most players at the 800GS cap.

The game itself is only like $7 and lasts for a day if you are trying to get 100%. If you are looking for a game that will last a while, then this may not be for you. However, if you have a few bucks lying around and want to hear Samuel Jackson screaming "AFRO!" about 100 times, go ahead and get it.

I think the game is fantastic. I've seen it for sale for about $5 and it is worth so much more. It is an entertaining 800G's if you aren't worried about the full 1k. The completionist cheevo can get a little annoying at times just because the difficulty curve can be a little steep during some of the boss fights.

All in all, I'd give it a solid 7/10.

I still pop this game in every so often. I love the visual style. Music direction courtesy of RZA (Wu-Tang Clan) if you're into hip-hop. Plus there's something strangely satisfying about scalping enemies with your samurai sword! I'd say jump on it if you can find it cheap.
