With the superb voice acting and sound, frantic gameplay, and an engrossing (if at times confusing) storyline, Afro Samurai comes so very close to being game of the year material. Several missteps drag this title away from perfection. Whether it's the poor camera controls, the absence of trophy support, or the limited replay value, each little mistake detracts from the overall game. For fans of the original series this is a must-have title, but for everyone else there are better games out there that will provide more play for your hard-earned money."
