Gerald Villoria of GameSpy Writes:
When we first got our hands on Afro Samurai at Comic-Con, we were caught off-guard. What we originally thought was a presentation of a new animated series was actually the game engine. Afro Samurai's gorgeous art style uses cel shading and crisp, dark brushstrokes to give the game the look and feel of a manga series, with fluid movement and action that could only be provided by a big-budget animation studio. It's really a beautiful look that's been achieved here. That the game also features bloody samurai combat, a killer sense of humor, a soundtrack by The RZA, and the voice of Samuel L. Jackson... well, that's all just icing on the cake.
