Afro Samurai follows its protagonist, also named Afro Samurai, on a quest to avenge the death of his father. Style is the order of the day here and this title is oozing it out of every crevice. The game's graphical presentation looks like something straight out of a comic book. Developer Surge used some neat graphical texturing techniques to get the characters to look as authentic to the source material as possible.
The graphics are complimented by a variety of cinematic techniques, boosting Afro Samurai's visual presentation to the next level. The most prominent of which are comic book style panels that cut into the screen whenever a significant foe enters the fray, or a boss is about to do a super attack. Combining screen cuts of this nature with the comic book texturing of the graphics serves to turn the game into a visual powerhouse. All of this is great, but the fact that the soundtrack is just as impressive puts the cherry on top of an already great looking sundae.
