To begin my alphabetical completion, I've got to deal with Afro Samurai. A hack and slash adventure based off of an anime of the same name. If it follows the story arc closely, then I'm about a third of the way done the game. This is going to be a bit of a grind. The combos are a little clunky or really under powered and I can't quite get the hang of the focus mode thing. Frustration caused an abrupt ending to the play time last night when I was stuck between two rocks and infinitely falling. I wish that this was the only glitch I faced. It almost locked up twice when I leveled and sometimes it visually chokes hen trying to do a cutscene.

The upsides include a fairly cool anime/comic style split panel to show enemies or objectives and when you do get the combos to co-operate, it feels satisfying. If you are a fan of the anime series, and don't get bored easily with the same enemies and attacks, this game is definitely for you. I don't think I'll be going for 100% completion and it's not much in the way of replay value to me.

2.5/5

current play time, 3 hours
