In the end, Afro Samurai is a flawed, but entertaining experience. Reminiscent of last year’s Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, the potential for greatness was there, the combat was tight, but horrible bosses and mediocre platforming ground the game to a shrieking halt. It’s close to being amazing, and there are times when it is, but there are too many times where it just simply isn’t up to par with the current generation’s standards. The camera is too jumpy, the bosses are too frustrating, and the platforming just isn’t any fun. Hopefully a sequel could fix the issues and create something truly wonderful, but sadly, Afro Samurai doesn’t live up to its potential.
