I wasn't expecting to like this as much as I did. It's a brilliant hack and slash thats very easy to pick up, yet gets more demanding torwards the end with more advanced moves. The soundtrack is absolutely fantastic, and the visuals are amazing. It's like playing out a comic book, and it looks really cool!
I would say this game is worth buying. I went for all the achievements and it took me about 16 hours or so. Some parts are extremely challenging, especially on No. 1 difficultly where you think some parts are impossible to get past! Yes there is no multiplayer, but this is just a fantastic single player experience. I've already started playing through this again.
Lastly, you do not have to be a fan of the anime to like this. I have never watched Afro Samurai before and I just bought the game on a spur of the moment thing! I'm so glad I did!!
Also, the game is hilarious! Honestly, Samuel L. Jackson is brilliant as Ninja Ninja so it will definantly provide a few laughs along the way.
Altogether a fantastic game, worth buying and spending time on!
