You've been hearing a lot about the Afro Samurai game-- what with Samuel L. Jackson geeking out and Church's Chicken selling out and all— but all the fun stuff aside, how does it actually stack up as an action game? Our younger-older brother Giant Bomb provides the answer in Jeff's review, where he gives the game points for Jackson's voice work and the gore, but repetitive gameplay and mediocre camera control keep it from getting top scores.


What do you think? Will you pick this one up for the sheer awesomeness of an interactive anime-related Samuel L. Jackson piece, or are you not going to bother?

I believe in Jeff, and I believe there are much better games coming out this month. Street Fighter 4, Killzone 2 and Halo Wars (demos of the latter two this week) to mention a few.

@Zeouterlimits: Killzone 2 is finally coming out? is it really all that great anymore by comparison to the other new games? idk much about it anymore.

Eh, I might rent the game after I watch the show...

I don't have a PS3 or a 360 yet...regardless, I don't plan on picking it up when I do get the 360.  Heavy on Samuel L Jackson and light on good gameplay does not make a good game!

HeeroYuy: Yeap, The reviews are gushing over Killzone 2. But they also loved the new Prince of Persia as well.... So I don't know what to think.

As for Aftro, I have never actually watch the show. I have the first season queued up on Netflix...  If I like what I see I'll think about getting the game. But before that  I still need to watch Paprika first so I can send that back.
